Aberdeen has become a go-to destination for advanced cosmetic procedures, especially at Profile Aesthetic, where laser-assisted liposuction represents the pinnacle of fat removal and body contouring technologies. Compared to traditional and Vaser liposuction, laser liposuction stands out for its safety, controllability, and additional skin tightening benefits.

The Superiority of Laser-Assisted Liposuction

Comparing Traditional, Vaser, and Laser Liposuction

Traditional liposuction is increasingly being replaced by more advanced technologies that are less aggressive, cause less bruising and deliver greater skin tightening. Vaser liposuction, using ultrasound technology, is  a popular alternative and is a step-forward from traditional liposuction, offering more precise fat removal. However, laser-assisted liposuction takes it a step further by not only liquefying fat but also tightening the skin, providing a smoother, more controlled, and aesthetically pleasing outcome.

Embracing the Technological Advance

Opting for laser liposuction means choosing enhanced safety, minimal invasiveness, and quicker recovery times. The Beautifill technique, used at Profile Aesthetic, is renowned for its effectiveness in sculpting and contouring stubborn areas, delivering uniform results with the added advantage of skin rejuvenation. The system also allows the harvesting of high-quality fat for fat transfer procedures such as facial fat transfer and breast enhancement without leaving unsightly areas of sagging skin.

Although laser liposuction can be used for general fat reduction, the best results are achieved when treating stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise.

Preparing for a Transformative Experience

Consultation: The First Step

Your journey at Profile Aesthetic begins with a thorough consultation to understand the laser liposuction process and set clear, achievable goals. The clinic's surgeons and specialist nurses are committed to ensuring you are fully informed and comfortable before proceeding.

A minimum period of 2 weeks is required between the first consultation and the procedure itself. This is to allow adequate time for patients to consider their options and reflect on their expectations of the procedure.

The Laser Liposuction Procedure

Experience a refined, less invasive procedure with minimal discomfort. Advanced laser technology allows surgeons to target and remove fat more efficiently, enhancing the overall experience and setting new standards compared to traditional methods. All our procedures are performed under local anaesthetic and sedation, allowing the procedure to be performed as a day case, with no hospital stay required.

Recovery and Enhanced Outcomes

Swift Recovery and Enhanced Care

Thanks to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, recovery from laser liposuction is typically quicker, allowing patients to return to their normal life swiftly. Profile Aesthetic's comprehensive aftercare ensures a comfortable recovery period and optimal results.

Augmenting Results with Complementary Treatments

Profile Aesthetic doesn't stop at liposuction. For those seeking enhanced results, the clinic offers supplementary non-invasive treatments like Emsculpt NEO and Alma PrimeX, further refining and perfecting the body contouring process. These treatments provide further skin tightening and muscle toning to create enhanced contours and build strength.

For comprehensive, long-lasting neck and jawline contouring, laser-assisted liposuction can be combined with MyEllevate.
