Laser Lipolysis

Laser Lipolysis is a new liposculpture procedure for the removal of stubborn pockets of fat such as ‘saddlebags’, ‘love handles’, ‘double chin’ etc. It can effectively reduce areas of fat resistance to diet or exercise whilst reducing the risks associated with traditional procedures such as liposuction. Laser Lipolysis is the latest, minimally invasive way of removing small localized fat deposits.


Local anesthesia will be used in the area to be treated before commencing so you will remain comfortable and awake throughout the procedure.


A very thin cannula (1mm wide hollow metal tube) is pushed through a small incision in the skin. The laser probe is intro- duced into the cannula and laser light is then pulsed into the fatty tissue where the fat cells are transformed into an oily sludge- like substance or “debris” which is eventually eliminated by the body. The length of the treatment depends on how many areas you’re having treated but can take between one and two hours. Generally, one treatment session per area is considered to be enough, however, it all depends on the amount of fat to be removed, and if it is felt that the final result after 4 6 months needs improving on or not. On an average, a total of 500mls can be realistically removed in one treatment session. You may be required to rest for an hour or so following treatment, but normal activities can usually be resumed the following day. It is best to avoid vigorous physical activity or sports for one to two weeks after this procedure. The results are seen gradually over a number of weeks, though it may take up to four months for the maximum effects to be seen because your body continues to process and naturally remove the released fat until none is left. However, right from day one most people can feel the treated area(s) as already having less fat when squeezed between the fingers In addition, because the laser releases heat when it is fired, it results in gradual skin contraction in the treated area, so you are not left with loose skin once the fat has disappeared. The actual procedure is generally well tolerated, due to the local anaesthesia. You may feel a tugging sensation during treatment but should not feel pain. People may experience minor swelling, bruising, or tenderness for a few days, but because no suction is applied following Laser Lipolysis it is safer than other traditional methods used in liposuction.


  • Avoid vigorous physical activity or sports for one to two weeks afterward.
  • Keep the compression bandage/clothing supplied on for the advised period- usually 24-48 hours for treatments on the face and under the chin and 7-10 days in other areas.
  • Take the short course of antibiotics that has been prescribed for 5 days
  • Keep the area clean and dry for 2-3 days following treatment Avoid alcohol consumption for 12 hours following the procedure Gentle massage or treatment is allowable after 10-12 days.
  • Avoid vigorous massage in the treated area for 4-5 months.
  • Contact your practitioner immediately if you notice any signs of infection or if you experience heavy bleeding or a sudden increase in pain.
  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not suitable candidates.
  • Laser Lipolysis is not a cure for obesity. If you are generally healthy and not obese, Laser Lipolysis could help you to re-contour your body with minimal risk.

I had severe Lachen Planus for the last 1 year and I got to know about Satish Sir. Thanks to him, his treatment has been really very smooth and effective so far. The medicines prescribed by him has worked apparently and I am looking forward to cure my disease very soon. More importantly, his behaviour is really kind and he listens to us patiently.

One of the most honest dermatologists I have ever met. He does not prescribe expensive and unnecessary medications and unnecessary blood test like some other dermatologist do , we need more dermatologists like him in Mumbai
