How we can help

Laser Liposuction in Aberdeen

Laser-assisted liposuction is a powerful body contouring procedure that removes unwanted fat deposits that haven't responded to diet and exercise. Increasingly, liposuction is performed using energy-based technologies such as laser, ultrasound (VASER) and radiofrequency (Bodytite) as the addition of these technologies enhance the safety, efficiency and recovery time of the procedure.

Liposuction in Profile Aesthetic is performed using the revolutionary Beautifill laser liposuction system from Alma which not only delivers the enhanced contouring and skin tightening of laser liposuction, but also allows the efficient harvesting of fat for fat transfer procedures.

Beautifill can address stubborn fat in various areas such as the neck (double chin), arms, breasts, abdomen, waist, flanks, thighs, ankles and calves. Our expert surgeons will listen to your concerns and develop a bespoke treatment plan to help you achieve your goals. With years of experience in body contouring technology, they can provide you with optimal results that will transform your profile.

What Does the Laser Liposuction Procedure Involve?

The Beautifill laser liposuction procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and sedation. Small areas may be suitable for treatment under local anaesthetic alone. All procedures are performed in our state-of-the-art operating theatre, ensuring the highest standards of safety and infection control.

  • Local anaesthetic is used to numb the treatment area
  • A fine laser fibre is inserted through tiny incisions in the skin and the laser is used to disrupt the fat and tighten the skin
  • Fat is gently removed by liposuction, sculpting the body to achieve the desired contour smoothly and without dimpling
  • Further skin tightening can be performed with the laser to avoid loose or sagging skin

What are the Benefits of Beautifill Liposuction vs Traditional Liposuction and other Techniques?

  • Day case procedure under local anaesthetic - no need for an overnight stay in hospital
  • Beautifill is a more gentle procedure as the laser liquefies fat, allowing liposuction with smaller tubes and less force
  • Less bruising and discomfort than traditional liposuction, therefore faster recovery!
  • Less risk of burns caused by overheating, which can occur with ultrasound (VASER) and radiofrequency liposuction
  • The laser-generated heat that BeautiFill uses to liquefy fat also provides better skin-tightening, increased elasticity of the skin and less dimpling or sagging than other techniques
  • Potential to use the suctioned fat for fat transfer to the face, breasts or buttocks - the Beautifill laser system produces high quality fat with higher cell viability than other techniques (>95% viability in clinical studies)

What Areas Can Be Treated by Laser Liposuction?

Almost any area of the body that has unwanted fat deposits such as:

  • the neck or "double chin"
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Calves & Ankles

Multiple areas can be treated, however there is a limit to the amount of fat that can be removed safely in a single session - our surgeons will advise you on the safest approach.

What is the Recovery from Liposuction Like?

The recovery from Beautifill laser liposuction is easier than with traditional liposuction. Bruising is reduced as the laser coagulates while disrupting the fat and tightening the skin. There is generally some swelling as a result of the procedure and the volume of local anaesthetic used. This quickly subsides over the first 2 weeks. You will need to wear a specialised compression garment for 6 weeks after the procedure and depending on the areas treated, can return to work within a few days - most people can return to light or office-based work after a week. Our specialist nurses will be on-hand throughout your recovery to support and advise you.

You will see the results developing quickly as the swelling subsides. Most of the swelling will be gone by 6 weeks, but there will be continued enhancement of your contour for around 3 months and the skin tightening will continue to improve over 6 months. Additional treatments such as radiofrequency and Emsculpt NEO can be used to enhance this process and build underlying muscles to improve your shape further.

What is the Cost of Beautifill Laser Liposuction?

The cost of liposuction procedures depends on the size of the area being treated, with prices starting at £3000.
