LAL - Laser Assisted Liposuction (Smartlipo with suction)
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi has invented and developed the concept of laser assisted liposuction technique - LAL in 2007.
This advanced technique is based on lasering the fat tissue using Smartlipo laser energy, followed by skin tightening by taking advantage of the thermal effect of the laser energy, after which he uses the suction machine or the bodyjet liposuction technique to suck out the liquefied fat.
Dr Ayhm Al-Ayoubi took the Smartlipo treatment further and developed his own technique for patients with much larger areas of fat. This combines Smartlipo and gentle suction at the same time - The Laser Assisted Liposcution LAL.
Smartlipo's pulsating laser beam has a photo-mechanical effect rupturing the fat cells' membrane. Also it has thermal effect which melts the fractured fat cells and coagulates small blood vessels which reduce the bleeding to minimum. Both effects together (Photo-dynamic and Thermal) will give the skin tightening results.
Melting the loose fat
The areas to be treated are marked with a special pencil and each is divided into segments of 5x5cm. A small incision 1-2mm is made with a micro-scalpel in which the local anaesthetic is injected. The local anaesthesia is carried out via longitudinal infiltration of the subcutaneous fatty tissue in anything from ten to twenty directions in order to form a network.
The optical fibre of the laser is inserted into the same incision created for the infiltration of the anaesthetic solution. Its transit through the skin is monitored by means of the guiding light on the laser device itself. The actual treatment begins by slowly moving forwards lengthwise following the lines traced on the skin and trying to constantly maintain the same speed of movement.
The deep fat is lasered first followed by the superficial fat and finally the fat is suctioned out. This produces great results and is relatively painless. Dr Al-Ayoubi always reminds his patients that it is not possible to have any procedure without some discomfort, but this is a very good and safe procedure.
The skin tightening in some areas like hips is immediate patients often like to see results straightaway, they don't like to be told that it can take many months. It is also done under local anaesthetic so there is no need for a general anaesthetic or to stay overnight which also means that it can be done on patients who aren't suitable for a general. There are no stitches, just a very small incision that heals very well and quickly. By three or so months the patients can see the final result.

In the year 2008 the evolution of laser treatment came with the 2nd generation Smartlipo MPX from the USA which was also introduced by Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi who furthermore used this evolutionary laser in his laser assisted liposuction technique which allows him to perform Smart Lipo with suction in multiple areas in addition with the skin tightening effect.
The Smartlipo MPX is the evolution of this revolutionary technique as instead of one it uses two different laser wavelengths both targeting the fat cell membranes and the blood vessels and water which gives the skin a tightening effect in addition to fracturing the fat cells.
In the year 2010 the third generation of SmartLipo known as Smartlipo triplex was introduced into the UK and Europe by Dr Ayham AL-Ayoubi. This machine uses 3 different wavelengths of laser energy and has taken the laser assisted liposuction technique to a different level,as it allows the plastic surgeon to perform Smartlipo with suction on multiple and large areas giving skin tightening effect with no surgical scars and with no down time.
The laser assisted liposuction technique has been adapted by numerous numbers of plastic surgeons and cosmetic doctors from all around the world.
In addition, Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi has been travelling all around the world, teaching this revolutionary advanced laser liposuction technique which he performs at his Clinic in central London which is the official training centre for Smartlipo laser liposuction in the UK
