What is SAFElipo?
SAFElipo is also called SAFElipo body contouring and SAFE liposuction. It represents a big improvement and innovation of the regular liposuction procedures. Its uniqueness brings about significant changes with less to no tissue trauma, bruising, burns, fascia, dermis, discomfort, and other problems compared to other liposuction methods. The procedure equalizes the thin layer of fat right under the skin using a cannula to break and smooth out the fat, thus, resulting in a smoother and tighter appearance.
SAFE stands for:
S – Separation of fat using “exploded tip” cannulas. This does not require suction. It instead emulsifies the fat that needs to be eliminated.
A – Aspiration (Fat aspiration with “Normal” cannula). This is a quick step after the separation of fat, and causes no bleeding.
FE – Fat Equalization using an “exploded” cannula. The process is to merge the augmented areas to the surrounding areas. Thus,resulting in a smooth and well contoured appearance.
