Lipocell body reshaping is a minimally invasive body sculpturing technique whereby the unwanted fat in some parts of the body is extracted out and transferred into other parts of the body to increase the volume. It is fast-growing as one of the most sought after body reconstruction methods, popularised by mainstream celebrities. It is also known as fat transfer.
Most commonly used lipocell body reshaping methods are to enlarge breasts, and buttocks. There are also fat transfer to face. It is also used to correct minor imbalances in terms of shape, or size. Although, some people use it to just remove the stubborn fat at the belly.
Lipocell body reshaping works by removing parts of unwanted fat in undesired areas and inserting it to the parts you’d like to augment. This can be your breasts, buttocks, face or other parts that you wanted.
The procedure starts by a consultation with the doctor whereby the doctor will inspect your health and condition. If you are found fit to do the procedure, the doctor will advise you on the next step.
Then, as you lie down, the doctor will inject you with local anesthesia (LA) to reduce any discomfort. During the procedure, you will not feel a thing so you may relax. Then, the doctor will create an entry point for fat extraction. You may choose from any parts of your body you’d like to reduce the size, including belly, love handles or thigh.
The doctor will use a long cannula to extract the fat. This is done by probing the cannula to the area again and again. Although the procedure sounds painful, rest assured you’ll be under anesthesia now so you wouldn’t feel any discomfort.
After the fat extraction completed, the accumulated fat will then be processed in a centrifuge to get only pure fat. This pure fat will then be injected back to your desired areas.
The injected fat can stay in your body for 1-2 years. However, this varies with patients. If the patient has a sudden weight loss, the LipoCell will also reduce.
LipoCell is an excellent body sculpting options for those who’d like to reduce volume in some parts of their body, and increase in other parts. Many have chosen this procedure because:
The LipoCell Body Sculpturing can be used to firm up selected parts of the body, giving you a more youthful appearance overall. The décolletage, breast, buttocks, knees, arms and elbows can all benefit from this treatment which can address growing folds, wrinkles, saggy skin, stretch marks and other aesthetic imperfections.
As LipoCell is taken out from parts of your body, it can help you reduce the fat volume there. Most of our patients like to extract the fat from belly. In return, their tummy look slimmer and flatter.
LipoCell also can be used for facial sculpting. Any areas that wanted to be restructured can be enhanced using LipoCell for example lips, nose, cheeks and jawline. Best of all, we don’t need to use fillers or botox as your fat is already enough to enhance your features.
As you get older, collagen and elastin in your body reduce significantly. Both of these elements are beneficial to our skin as it keeps your skin supple and elastic. However, as the number drops, your skin will lose its natural elasticity. This creates saggy skin.
To help repair the problems, LipoCell can be used to add volume to your skin. This can be done on the neck, hand, or face. Those who had LipoCell in their hands and neck said it tackles their problems of turkey neck and ‘old-looking’ hands.
The lack of collagen and elastin also results in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. LipoCell can be used to fill up deep wrinkles especially on the smile and marionette lines.
Deep scars are often the result of inflammatory wounds such as accidents, acne scars or other causes. LipoCell can be used to fill in the deep scar and create a flat surface to reduce the appearance.
As LipoCell uses a metal cannula to extract the fat, you may feel a slight prickling sensation after the anesthesia wears off. There would be slight itching, swelling, and redness that will reduce in a few days. Therefore, you are not advised to do heavy exercises and swimming to avoid infections on the entry point.
LipoCell can stay in your body for 1.5 – 2 years. However, it differs from one patient to the other depending on individual metabolism level. If a person has a high metabolism, he/she should maintain their weight so the body would not absorb the LipoCell.
The side effects of LipoCell is very minimal and rarely happens. If performed by a professional, experienced doctor, you may not worry of harmful side effects.
The most common side effects reported associated with this is the infection at the entry point. However, this is easily treated with some tropical cream and constant cleaning. Other side effects include imbalance in the target area (lips, chin), but this often associated when the doctor doing the injection is not experienced.
No downtime is necessary and you may return to your regular routine after your appointment.
The average LipoCell cost in Premier Clinic can range anywhere from RM 5,000 to RM 15,000 per area. The cost for LipoCell varies depending on the size of the area, and the complexity of the process. This will be further advised by the doctor during your consultation session.
It is advised to seek a professional doctor to do LipoCell.
