Slim Lipo is an innovative method for eliminating fat that delivers outstanding results. The Slim Liposuction procedure is faster for surgeons and provides a shorter recovery time for patients than traditional liposuction methods.
Also known as Slim Lipolysis Surgery, it is a laser-based system of liposuction that employs laser technology. It dissolves fat and firms up skin in targeted areas of the body. If you are thinking about liposuction in Melbourne, then contact us to find out more about the Slim Lipo alternative.
Slim Liposuction Vs Traditional Liposuction
Slim Lipo is unlike traditional liposuction, which uses a suction tube (cannula) moved back and forth to break up and remove fat cells. Slim liposuction employs a laser to liquefy excess fat cells before they are expelled through an even smaller micro-sized tube.
The smaller tube means reduced incision holes for the patient, meaning they are usually able to recover much quicker. Slim Lipo has dual laser wavelength. One wavelength targets fat, specifically using a headlight pattern to optimise fat melting in a targeted area. The other wavelength targets the skin, making it an excellent form of treatment to address excessive fat and sagging skin.
Feedback from patients who have undergone Slim Lipo at Chelsea Cosmetics has been extremely positive. Many are impressed with the immediate tighter, more contoured visual appearance achieved. It can be done under local anaesthesia instead of general anaesthesia. There is also less obvious bruising and quick recovery. It is fast becoming the type of liposuction Melbourne patients are preferring.
What Type of Anaesthetic is Used?
We use a specialised local anaesthetic called Tumescent anaesthesia. The advantage is that it numbs the immediate area, while at the same time, shrinks the blood vessels. This minimises discomfort during the surgery and any chance of bleeding after the liposuction procedure too.

Advantages of Slim Liposuction
Slim liposuction, due to the smaller tube, can be performed on a wider range of body areas. It gives the surgeon greater control and offers more options for patients. Other advantages include:
Improved Skin Tightening For Long-Lasting Results
Slim Lipo is one of the best methods to achieve good skin retraction for people with sagging skin after weight loss or giving birth. Slim Lipo uses a laser wavelength that selectively targets the collagen-producing cells in the skin dermis. As a result, the skin fibres shrink over about six months. Full skin retraction is usually achieved nine months after the procedure.
Reduced Recovery Time Without Sacrificing Results
The downtime for Slim Lipo fat removal surgery is usually between 3-4 days. This is compared to the conventional liposuction method, which is generally about 3-4 weeks of discomfort and bruising. After slim lipo, some patients can return to work within two days post-procedure.
Unlike general anaesthesia, where you are unconscious, slim lipo is performed under local anaesthesia. A small body area is numbed, and you remain fully conscious during the procedure, and you can return home on the same day.
Less Impact on the Body
Conventional lipo pushes the cannula firmly into the body back and forth. It can damage nearby essential structures such as muscles, blood vessels, and nerves. With Slim Lipo, the probe is much smaller and is pushed gently into the fat layer only. While a laser dissolves the unwanted fat before removal, with less impact on the body overall.
Target Problem Areas
Due to the precision capabilities of the laser technology, a targeted approach can be applied to problem areas. SLim liposuction can help eliminate hard-to-remove fat cells and smooth and contour the surrounding skin. The result allows you to improve a specific part of the body that has been bothering you without major surgery.

What Can Liposuction Can Do For You?
Though it is still a surgical procedure and thus carries some risks, Slim Lipo offers a less impactful option than traditional methods. It is becoming increasingly popular for those looking to sculpt and define their bodies or have a specific look they wish to achieve.
Chelsea Cosmetics offers Slim Lipo as an effective way to achieve the aesthetic you're looking for. Many of our patients initially seek non-surgical liposuction options that will provide comparable results. Slim Lipo bridges the gap between the traditional liposuction procedure and non-surgical alternatives. Thanks to the advances in laser technology, it is one of the most effective procedures available.
