What is meso-lipolysis?
Meso-lipolysis is a simple procedure which consists of a series of small injections of fat melting solutions into the subcutaneous tissue (fat cell layer) to remove small, stubborn and unwanted pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is much less invasive and less painful compared to liposuction.
What are the treatment areas for meso-lipolysis?
Meso-lipolysis is commonly used on the face for the cheek, buccal and jowl area; the neck for double chin and body parts such as shoulders, arms, back, tummy, thigh and buttocks.

Anyone who wants to get rid of unwanted fatty deposits on the body can opt for meso-lipolysis.

What other treatment options are there?
Liposuction is another option for fat removal as it is excellent for reducing fatty bulges and body contouring, especially for clients who wish to have dramatic changes of their body shape. Multiple areas of the body can be treated in one sitting and results can be seen immediately.
GEM Clinic is the first clinic in Malaysia to utilize the Euromi EVA sp6® liposuction device and N.I.L.® technique (Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture) for fat removal. Known as Tickle Lipo in the U.S., the technology cuts the downtime to half that of conventional liposuction. While the healing time for conventional liposuction can take anywhere from 3 weeks to more than a month, Tickle Lipo reduces it to just 10 to 14 days.
