Slim Lipo Before & After Photos


Liposuction was first used in the 1920s by the French surgeon, Charles Dujarier. Since that time, the use of suction to remove fat and sculpt the body has progressed dramatically. The modern technique has evolved to reduce previous post-surgical complications associated drastically.

Despite these improvements, patients are always looking for non-surgical liposuction options that will provide comparable results. Slim Lipo was developed to bridge the gap between the traditional procedure and non-surgical alternatives. So, Chelsea Cosmetics is offering Slim Lip, a Liposuction in Melbourne, which thanks to the advances in laser technology is one of the safest and most effective procedures available.

Three of the main types of Liposuction surgery offered by Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne are traditional, Power-Assisted (PAL), Ultrasound-Assisted (UAL) and Laser-Assisted (LAL) (SmartLipo or SlimLipo).


Though it is still a surgical procedure and thus carries some risks, Slim Lipo Melbourne is a far less invasive option than the standard method. This new procedure is becoming increasingly popular for those looking to sculpt and define their bodies.

  • Less invasive
  • Decrease downtime after the procedure with rapid recovery
  • With the targeted approach, problem areas can be easily reduced within a few treatment sessions


Conventional lipo can be risky. If the metal cannula used in the procedure has to be employed close to the skin, damage can occur due to interfering with the delicate blood supply to the skin. Such damage can cause a change in skin pigmentation or skin necrosis.

The gentler touch of Slim Lipo fat removal surgery allows it to be used close to the skin to safely and effectively stimulate collagen production and improve skin quality and shrinking of loose skin. That’s also the reason this procedure is considered one of the best lipo procedures in Melbourne.

With conventional lipo, the cannula has to be pushed forcibly into the body, and that could cause damage to essential structures like muscles, blood vessels, and nerves. With Slim Lipo, the probe is pushed gently into the fat layer, and the laser does its magic in dissolving the unwanted fat and tightening the loose skin at the same time, getting more from the procedure.

Slim Lipo has dual laser wavelength, one wavelength targets fat specifically, and the other wavelength targets the skin. This makes Slim Lipo an excellent form of treatment to address excessive fat and sagging skin.


Slim Lipo Melbourne is one of the best methods to achieve good skin retraction for people with sagging skin after weight loss or giving birth. Skin retraction improves gradually over a period of 6-9 months after the procedure.

Slim Lipo is cutting-edge fat removal technology to provide you excellent results with reduced risk and recovery time. Slim Lipo has a laser wavelength that selectively targets the collagen-producing cells in the skin dermis. As a result, over a period of six months, the skin fibres shrink, with full retraction achieved in nine months after the procedure.


The downtime after the conventional method is usually about 3-4 weeks of discomfort and bruising; the downtime after Slim Lipo fat removal surgery in Melbourne is usually between 3-4 days, with some patients able to go back to work within two days post-procedure. This is also the main reason patients prefer this over other Liposuctions in Melbourne.


Liposuction is the process of forcibly sucking the fat out of the body using negative pressure by suction machine and breaking the fat cells using a metal tube called a “cannula.”

The traditional or conventional Liposuction process is the original method used to perform lipo and is still very popular among cosmetic surgeons. Traditional lipo involves the creation of incisions over fat deposits, into which a cannula is inserted to break up and remove the fat from the body.

This procedure, which initially involved a higher rate of post-surgery complications, has been refined and improved with the invention of tumescent anaesthesia. Tumescent anaesthesia is a mixture of a large volume of saline, local anaesthetic, and adrenaline used in this procedure.

The benefits of using tumescent anaesthesia over local anaesthesia or general anaesthetic during these procedures are that tumescent anaesthesia shrinks the blood vessels under the skin and helps to minimise blood loss during the procedure, from about 50 – 60% using the old procedure down to 1%. This also allows for quicker recovery time.

Problem areas that can be addressed with Slim Lipo

Slim Lipo Fat Removal in Melbourne Australia

Slim Lipo Fat Removal in Melbourne Australia

Sometimes no matter how much we exercise or how well we eat, there are parts of our body that just don’t change. With Slim Lipo, standard and the PAL system, we can safely remove a large volume of fat and can achieve the desired results with less discomfort and downtime. Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne Slim Lipo offers an effective way to achieve the aesthetic you’re looking for. Slim lipo when combined with PAL allows the surgeon to remove more fat than the conventional method and helps more skin retraction and tightening.

The traditional process is suitable for patients with a large volume of fat that needs to be removed. Patients with mild to moderate skin laxity are advised by Dr Mark Attalla to undergo another method such as Slim Lipo which is one of the best options for Slim Lipo in Melbourne. The benefit of Slim Lipo Melbourne over traditional surgery is that it involves a longer recovery time.

Benefits of Traditional Lipo

  • Suitable for large volume fat removal
  • Addition of tumescent anaesthesia – improved process and reduced recovery time
  • Longer recovery time than other fat reduction methods

What Is Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)?

Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) is a modernised version of the procedure, also performed using tumescent anaesthesia. PAL involves the cannula being connected to a motorised handpiece, which sends micro-vibrations down through the cannula and into the subcutaneous fat beneath the skin. These vibrations gently loosen the fat, making the suction process easier and resulting in less tissue trauma than the traditional method.

Benefits of Slim Lipo Fat Removal Surgery:

  • Less invasive than normal lipo,
  • Decreased downtime after the procedure with a faster recovery
  • With a targeted approach, problem areas can be easily reduced within a few treatment sessions

The smaller size of the cannula also allows the PAL method to be used on areas of the body, which are more difficult to sculpt, such as the inner thighs and male breast area.

Similar to the traditional fat removal surgeries in Melbourne, PAL is a good choice for a patient who has a large volume of fat that needs to be removed, but it is not suitable for those with moderate skin laxity.

The benefits of Power Assisted Liposuction include:

  • Greater surgical control
  • Able to be used on a wider range of areas
  • Ease of use and greater control over the cannula by the surgeon
  • Shorter surgery and recovery period
  • Less scarring and bruising post-surgery
  • Able to be used on a wider range of areas

What type of Lipo is offered?

Chelsea Cosmetics specialises in the following areas of liposuction:

How it Works

To better understand the procedure, how it’s done and the recovery process, feel free to study this section.


The lipo procedure is done under sedation, lowering the patient’s stress before and during surgery. Local anaesthesia is injected at the site so that a small nick can be made in the skin, where the tumescent anaesthesia is then injected to numb the whole area.

The laser lipo is used first under the skin to melt the fat and tightens the skin, and then power-assisted lipo (PAL) is used gently under the skin where the cannula vibrates and breaks the remaining fat without using any power force. PAL has much stronger power to remove more fat from the patient than conventional lipo without the need to use any manpower force. After the procedure, the patient should wear a compression garment for four weeks. The garment is designed to support the tissues and to minimise the chances of bruising and swelling from the procedure.


Tumescent anaesthesia is a large volume of diluted local anaesthesia that has the advantage of numbing the area, and at the same time, it shrinks the blood vessels, which minimises the discomfort during the surgery and any chance of bleeding after the surgery.


Recovery from this procedure is very rapid. It is quite common to sense some tenderness, and some patients could resume work the very next day. A compression garment will be worn on the treated section for 4-6 weeks. While results may differ for each patient, they cannot be guaranteed. On consultation, Dr. Attalla will be able to advise you if you are a good candidate for the Slim Lipo procedure.


  • Unrealistic expectation.
  • Patients that have undergone crash dieting prior to the treatment.
  • Morbid Obesity (mega non-surgical liposuction controversial due to higher risk of mortality from fluid shifts)
  • Anaesthesia (allergy to the medications)
  • Patients with a history of bad scarring or keloids


Minor & Common Complications:

Complications do not pose a threat to the patient’s life or affect their bodily functions or interfere with their workability.

Some of the complications include:

  • Temporary bruising
  • Seroma
  • Allergic reactions to drugs
  • Irregularities of the skin
  • Unevenness and hematomas

Less common side effects include:

  • Necrotizing fasciitis
  • Infection
  • Local Anaesthesia risks
