Sometimes the hardest work doesn’t produce deserved results. You may have lost kilos, and stuck to your exercise regimen, but you have stubborn areas of fat that just refuse to budge.

Once there was little you could do about these problem areas. But, now, a skilled surgeon, such as Dr Dilip Gahankari, can help you create the body you want without extreme invasive surgery. Say hello to Slimlipo, a liposculture procedures that allows you, literally, to sculpt the body you want.  

Whether it’s your abdomen, back, buttocks, chin and neck, thighs or upper arms that you would like to reshape, Slimlipo can help you achieve a more streamlined figure.

SlimLipo works best when you incorporate it with a healthy eating and exercise plan.

What is Slimlipo?

SlimLipo is a trademarked laser liposuction machine used for fat-removing and skin-tightening. It uses a laser to liquefy fat for easier removal from the body through a medical suction device. SlimLipo Laser liposuction may also reduce sagging through the retraction of tissue.

What is it used for?

This special liposculpture can be used as a stand alone procedure for a specific problem such as love handles or for contouring of buttocks, thighs, arms or calves.

However, it can also be used as an adjunct to other procedures such as Abdominoplasty, Breast reduction, Body lift or thigh lift, Face lift etc where you want to slim down and tighten specific areas to get a great result.

Will I need a general anaesthetic?

This popular procedure is generally performed under local anaesthetic (you are awake) so it is safer and recovery is faster. Incisions are made in your skin through which the laser device and tubes suck the fat. But, don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt. The area being treated is filled with a special anaesthetic liquid so that the procedure is painless. Afterwards, you may feel some soreness for about a week or so but this is easily managed with regular pain killers.

How long does it take?

In some cases, the Slimlipo laser body sculpting procedure can be completed in as little as an hour. However, your surgeon can give you a better idea of how your surgery will proceed after a full medical consultation.

What results can I expect?


You will get glimpses of your new shape immediately but you can also expect the full result to appear in the many weeks it takes for the swelling to go down. It is normal to have some bruising as well and this too may persist for several weeks in some areas.  

Skin retraction can take up to nine months to appear completely.

Your surgeon will suggest you wear a compression garment post-surgery to maximise results.

The wound from liposculpture are multiple though tiny and are mostly closed by simple tapes or single sutures. If sutures are used, they are removed in approximately a week. These incisions may leave tiny, almost invisible scars.

The only other results to expect are a feeling of greater self confidence and compliments from friends about your new shape.

How can I know if I am suitable for liposculture?

Generally everyone who has an area of their body where they can’t shift stubborn fat is suitable for Slimlipo. However, you must be in good general health, in a healthy weight range and committed to a healthy lifestyle to maintain results. If you have lost a lot of weight, your surgeon will discuss how this procedure can help you address sagging skin.
