effective Laser lipolysis Surgeon Vaidas Zvinys

Exercise, dieting, special massage, food supplements and specialist slimming procedures do not always help to shift fat in problematic areas such as the abdomen, inner thighs, chin, under-arms and buttocks.
In such cases a laser lipolysis is an ideal solution, as used by Carmen Elektra, Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore as well as other Hollywood stars. “Beauty World” plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgeon – Vaidas Zvynys is going to tell us about the pros and cons of this fat removal method.


What is it?

Laser Lipolysis is a fat removal method using a minimally invasive laser. The laser melts the fat away and causes less damage to the surrounding tissue compared with traditional liposuction techniques. This approach has been used for many years in Europe and United States. In Lithuania, Laser Lipolysis procedures have been performed since 2009 and it can be applied to all areas of the body.


Laser Lipolysis is suitable in these situations:

  • Body contouring adjustments ;
  • Removal of localised fat deposits in normal-weight patients;
  • Cellulite removal;
  • Face lift;
  • Lipoma removal;
  • Gynaecomastia (male breast reduction);
  • Correction of unsatisfactory liposuction procedures;
  • After a tummy tuck, or when a patient has dropped a lot of weight and excess skin needs to be removed.

Laser Lipolysis is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed under local anaesthesia. During the operation tiny incisions are made and a special cannula, similar in size to a needle, containing a laser fibre is inserted into the incisions. Using laser beam energy the adipose tissue (body fat) is melted away and the liquid  is sucked out. In smaller amounts the melted fat is simply adsorbed and naturally eliminated by the body. Because of the thermal effects of the laser energy the skin shrinks and within about four months any surplus sagging is reduced, making the area feel tighter.

What are the advantages and disadvantages?

This method, compared to traditional liposuction, has several advantages:

  • It is suitable for those areas where traditional liposuction techniques have failed: the areas above the knees, on the front surface of the thighs, neck, chin areas, inner arm areas.
  • There is no need for general anaesthesia, so preparation time for the operation is kept short.
  • The surgery is less traumatic, because the surgeons work with smaller diameter instruments.
  • The skin is lifted and tightened; cellulite in the area of the operation disappears.
  • Almost the next day you can go back to work, as long as the work is not too physical; but compression garments should be worn for about  3-5 days.

During lipolysis, as with all procedures, complications can occur, no matter how rare these are. For instance as the operation is based on the thermal effect of the laser on the fatty tissue it may cause temporary thermal skin lesions. It may also be necessary to repeat the procedure to complete the fat removal or correct any imperfections in the smoothness. Of course the more experienced and qualified the plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon is that performs the procedure, the lower the risk of potential complications. The specialist must have certification to perform these procedures. You should also ask what equipment is used, and how many of these procedures the surgeon performs each year.

Who should not have Laser Lipolysis?

The procedure is not suitable for patients who have diabetes, who suffer from auto-immune, kidney and blood disorders, or for pregnant women.

Patients with chronic heart and lung diseases must have an extensive consultation with their doctors before the laser lipolysis surgery.
