Our Consultant Plastic surgeons and liposuction doctors will always advise you on the best liposuction option for your ideal body shape and needs.
WHAT IS PROFHILO?
Profhilo is an injectable skin treatment containing one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) on the market, especially formulated for people whose skin lacks volume and elasticity. Rather than just plumping and filling wrinkles, the slow release of HA by Profhilo stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, in turn improving skin tone, hydration and the appearance of fine lines. The result is improved skin quality lasting for up to 6 months.
HOW DOES PROFHILO WORK?
Noninvasive procedures such as fillers are attractive because they are quick and have minimal downtime. Your entire visit will take place in under an hour. Following your injections, I usually recommend that patients avoid exercise for 24 hours and remain upright for the remainder of the day. No naps or downward dogs!
The other perk to fillers is that results are immediate. Yes, you can peek in a mirror after your procedure and see instant results! Depending on the type and location of your filler, you may experience some discomfort during or after the injections, bruising and swelling. I advise my patients not to schedule their procedure before a big social event just in case they have bruising after their injections.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PROFHILO?
Tumescent liposuction safely removes fat pockets from almost any part of your body, including, but not limited to:
Hips & waist
Inner & outer thighs
Arms (Bingo Wings)
Male Breasts (Gynaecomastia)
WHAT DOES PROFHILO TREATMENT INVOLVE?
While there may be varying classification of body fat, it is easiest to consider their anatomic location as subcutaneous & visceral.
Subcutaneous fat is located just under the skin which accounts for approximately 90% of overall body fat. Liposuction is the treatment of choice for removal of this type of fat.
Visceral fat is found around internal organs, like bowels. This is the type of fat that can NOT be removed by liposuction and its reduction needs a balanced diet and regular exercise.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
The development of “Tumescent Formula” by Professor Jeffrey Klein revolutionised the world of liposuction. It actually eliminated the need for general anaesthesia which poses real risks to our patients health. Liposuction under local anesthesia is very desirable. It has a lower risk of complications in comparison with conventional liposuction under general anesthesia as well as a much easier and faster post-procedure recovery.
What do I look like after the treatment?
Liposuction used to be a high risk major operation when performed under general anaesthesia. After development of “Tumescent Formula” and new liposuction technologies, it revolutionised the safety profile of liposuction as it is entirely done under local anaesthesia.
Is Profhilo safe?
There are several different technologies by which liposuction can be performed:
Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAL)
Water Assisted Liposuction (WAL) or BodyJet
Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL) or Vaser
Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
Radio-frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL)
Suction Assisted Liposuction (SAL)
The combination of PAL+SAL possess the highest safety profile. (Ref: Textbook of Liposuction – Shiffman M., Di Giuseppe A.); therefore, we NEVER advise any other methods like Vaser, Laser, BodyJet, etc which can breach the patient safety and cause serious complications. As a liposuction-dedicated clinic, we ONLY provide the combination of PAL+SAL to keep your safety our top priority.
Is Profhilo a dermal filler?
The most popular form of liposuction is tumescent liposuction (under local anaesthesia) which is more effective, safer and less pain after the surgery than traditional liposuction (under general anaesthesia), and has a quicker recovery time.
