SlimLipo (Laser Liposuction)

The SlimLipo device gently melts fat away. Due to its revolutionary capabilities, this method has increased in popularity. As the device liquefies and melts fat, it evenly firms loose skin. The procedure is quick and painless and produces smooth results. Approved by the FDA, SlimLipo is available in Brazil and has revolutionized liposuction procedures in Rio de Janeiro. Since Dr. Alexandre Charão regularly performs liposuction, receiving laser liposuction under his care is very safe. He has a proven high success rate among patients and works hard to understand each patient’s individual needs and aesthetic goals.

Minimal Impact

Since the SlimLipo device uses a very small cannula, as opposed to traditional liposuction, incisions are minimally invasive and hardly noticeable. The SlimLipo procedure uses a thin quartz fiber optic rod to send lasers through a tube, which is inserted into the body through 2-5 mm incisions. These lasers transfer light and heat to target unwanted fat. The heat gently kills, melts, and removes fat cells. Liquefied fat is then sucked out through the cannula. Additionally, SlimLipo activates collagen tissues to stimulate growth and firm loose skin from within. There is minimal bruising, swelling, and pain caused by this procedure. Since the incisions are so small, bleeding is nearly nonexistent.

This procedure is best for:

  • Abdomen and limbs
  • Hip and thighs­
  • ­Knees, back, buttocks, face, neck, and back

Your Initial Consultation

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

As you are researching SlimLipo procedures, it is important for you to define your expectations. During your initial consultation, you can discuss various options which will work for your goals and current situation. To help give Dr. Alexandre Charão a clear idea of your desired results, you should send him photos of how you would like your body to look.

Hospitalization Time and Information

If local anesthesia is used, patients can usually go home on the same day. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Alexandre Charão can safely discharge patients immediately after the procedure. If general or epidural anesthesia is required, patients are kept for at least 24 hours.

Postoperative Recovery

The recovery time of a SlimLipo procedure is faster and more comfortable than traditional liposuction. Even though this method is considerably safer, proper care must be exercised during the postoperative period. Postoperative care instructions are the same as traditional liposuction. Patients are advised to wear a compression garment for 30-60 days following the surgery. There will be bruising on the skin, which disappears over time. Dr. Alexandre Charão recommends regular lymphatic drainage and general follow-up appointments to monitor results. With proper postoperative care, patients can expect to have tighter, younger looking skin and a slimmer profile.

Total Cost and Before & After Photos

Congratulations, if you have read this far, then you are really committed to receiving a laser liposuction procedure. Your next step should be to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Alexandre Charão. During this 1 hour meeting, he will disclose further details, including total cost.
