My experience was exceptional. The doctor was very thorough and explicit giving detailed explanations on the procedure. His communications skills and kind personality immediately put my husband and I at ease and assured us that he was the correct doctor to choose for my elective procedure.

I am very happy with my full facelift procedure that was performed in January 2020 by Dr. Alejandro and his professional team at Elaen Clinic in Puerto Vallarta. The procedure was performed in a 'state of the art' hospital with round the clock care following the procedure. From the initial consultation to my final post-op visit I was treated with respect and kindness. Dr. Alejandro is a consummate professional.

What is Laser Lypolysis?

Laser Lipolysis (laserlipolisi) commonly referred to as smartlipo, is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, which removes stubborn fat deposits in specific regions in the body through a gradual process. The process entails liquefying the fat in the body, allowing it to drain throughout the course of a few weeks to a month.

 

A Good Candidate for Laser Lypolysis

Good candidates are healthy, non-smoking individuals who have difficulty getting rid of fat deposits in specific regions of the body. If you are more than 20 pounds overweight, liposuction is not a solution for you. It is important that you notify your doctor if you have had any major operations in the past.

 

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo this procedure. The minimum age requirement for this procedure should be 18 years of age.

 

Laser Lypolysis Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your doctor, who will discuss the method(s) that will be used to achieve the best results. Small incisions will be made around the regions that will be concentrated on. A cannula, or tube-like instrument, will be inserted, and fat will be liquefied with a small laser located inside the cannula.

 

Once the fat is loosened and liquefied, it will drain out of the small incisions throughout the course of a few weeks. This procedure is less invasive because fat is not vacuumed out, like the traditional liposuction.

 

Average Duration of the Laser Lipolysis Treatment: approximately 2 hours, yet this will depend on how much fat is to be removed, and the locations in the body from which they are to be removed.
