CONTACT THE DOCTOR
Dr. Puneet Gupta, one of the UK’s leading aesthetic physicians and an expert in non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Dr. Gupta is highly experienced in skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing methods as well as treating a range of skin conditions including acne and acne scarring, warts, moles, facial veins, keloid scars and melasma. He has performed more than 3000 procedures to date. Dr. Gupta is also currently the only doctor in Europe to be trained in the use of Microcannular Tumescent liposcuction, or ‘Microlipo’ – the safest and most advanced form of fat removal, which is carried out under local anaesthetic and leaves no scarring.
Many of us have stubborn pockets of fat on our bodies that will not respond to diet or exercise. Whilst surgery is a drastic option, there are other body shaping methods – carried out under local anaesthetic – which provide a far safer, more effective and less daunting choice. One of the latest and most advanced of these body shaping treatments is Microcannular Tumescent Liposuction or ‘Microlipo.’ Dr. Gupta is currently the only doctor in Europe to be trained in this method.
Microlipo gets its name from the tiny size of the cannulas used to extract the fat, the smallest of which is just 0.9mm wide.
The treatment therefore requires next to no recovery time and leaves no scarring. It is a walk-in, walk-out procedure meaning patients can leave the clinic immediately afterwards. Dr. Gupta was given advanced training in the US from the inventor of the method and lipo pioneer, Dr. Jeffrey Klein.
Microlipo for Breast Reduction
The development of the Microlipo technique has also led to an exciting advancement in the treatment options for those considering a breast reduction. Due to the delicacy of the cannulas used and the precision with which the surgeon can carry out the procedure, Microlipo is the first minimally invasive fat removal technique that is suitable for breast reduction.
This means that for the first time patients can be treated under local anaesthetic, without the risks of major surgery or general anaesthetic. The treatment also leaves no scarring, which is a huge step-forward compared to the traditional surgical method.
Dr. Gupta is the only physician in the country who is trained in the Microlipo breast reduction technique.
Vaserlipo uses ultrasound energy delivered through small cannulas, which causes much more selective tissue damage with finer tunnels and effective haemostasis. The technique results in much shorter healing time, a smooth skin surface and less likelihood of skin sag. It is indicated in patients who are not generally obese (BMI usually under 25kg/m2) but who have unwanted localised fat deposits in areas of the body that have failed to respond to dieting or exercise. Using tumescent local anaesthesia, a specified duration of ultrasound energy is applied in a fan-like pattern evenly throughout the volume of the unwanted adipose tissue using a titanium rod 2-4.7 mm in diameter.
The emitted ultrasound is 30,000 per second. This particular sound wave has two beneficial effects: (a) it is selectively absorbed by adipocytes (fat cells), (b) low grade heat dissipation and mechanical trauma has beneficial effects on the sub-dermis (deep skin). Adipocytes absorb the ultrasound wave causing specific cell damage. Those in the direct path of the titanium probe and approximately 2 mm from the tip of the shaft (depending on the number of rings) rupture immediately, producing an oily lysate. Those absorbing less energy gradually swell and rupture. The oily lysate released is removed during the procedure by using low power suction via a narrow bore canula the remainder naturally absorbed and excreted.
Some oozing from the puncture wounds in the skin will occur for a few of days after the procedure. The ultimate volume of adipose tissue loss is directly related to the amount of ultrasound energy and aspiration applied. After the operation, the patient must wear an elasticated compression garment on the treated area for a few weeks. Full healing is achieved after about four months.
The technique is extremely well tolerated and yields excellent results. It can be applied to a wide variety of body areas including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, lower legs, upper arms and sub-mental region (under the chin). A volume reduction of up to 2.5 L per area treated can be readily achieved.
