It is a medical condition in which there is excess body fat accumulation

  • More than 30% in Females
  • More than 25% in Males

How does a person know that he or she is obese/ fat / overweight

Obesity is measured and quantified by various methods such as:

  • BMI – Body Mass Index calculations
  • Fat Percentage measurement
  • Waist to Hip Ratio calculation
Am I Obese?

Body Mass Index

Let’s Calculate –

Comparing Body Weight ( Kg) to Body Surface Area (m²)

BSA = Square of Height in meters

BMI = (Body Weight/Height²)

Eg: 60kg / 5.2 / 25

65kg / 5.2 / 27

72kg / 5.2 / 30

84kg / 5.2 / 35

Fat Percentage



This method gives direct measurement of fat percentage in relation to muscle mass.

(Waist/Hip) < 0.8

Central Obesity > 0.8 (Truncal Obesity)

Increased Risk Of Diabetes (Type 2)

Heart Disease

It is the loss of overall body weight through the loss of fat and / or body water/ muscle mass

It is the loss of body weight through fat loss without losing muscle mass.

At LiveLight, weightloss is achieved through ‘ Easy Meal Plans’ and Lifestyle changes.

The Easy Meal Plans‘ are customized to every individual by taking into consideration their age, gender, daily routine, work timings, medical conditions, travel schedules, ethnic and culinary backgrounds.

Patients are encouraged to incorporate some form of light exercise in their daily routine to accelerate their weight loss as well as to boost their metabolism for a fitter body

It is the decrease in the measurable inches in specific areas of the body like waist, abdomen, hips, thighs and arms.

It is achieved by decreasing the fat thickness in these areas by using techniques like U – lipo ( Ultrasound Cavitation Lipolysis)

It is the non surgical way of giving an aesthetic shape to the body by restoring muscle tone and skin elasticity.

After fat loss the sagging muscles are toned using Electrical Muscle Stimulators and Loose Skin is tightened using HINARF. These techniques together are used to achieve Contouring and NonSurgical Tummy Tuck, waist Tuck, Hip Tuck, Thigh Tuck and Arm Tuck.

The Tucking and Contouring procedures are nonsurgical, painless procedures which need about 40 min to 80 min ( depending on patient requirement ). Hence these procedures are popularly known as “ Lunch Time Tucks ‘ as a person can easily do these during his or her lunch break and get back to work.

The fat from the destroyed Fat cells is released as Triglycerides and Glycerol. These are transported.

Drainage. The Triglycerides are metabolized by the Liver through normal Fat Metabolism Pathways. The Glycerol is used as an ‘Energy Source’ for ‘Aerobic Activity’

Withhold meals for two hours prior to the procedure and one hour post procedure.

One should drink plenty of water throughout the weeks of the duration of the session to aid Lymphatic Drainage.

30 – 40 min of moderate Aerobic activity ( Brisk walk ) is required daily to utilize the released fat components.

One is required to follow balanced meal plans which are low in saturated fats so as to prevent their redeposition in the few remaining cells of the fatty tissue.

There is no surgery involved. This is a non surgical non invasive procedure.

As this is a non surgical procedure there is no pain and no downtime. As such one can easily go back to work immediately after the procedures.

This is the reason they are also called ‘ Lunch Time ‘ procedures as one can actually complete them within 40 to 80 minutes (lunch time).

70%– 80% patients start noticing the results from the 3rd or 4th session while 20% to 30% patients may see results only after 6th or 7th session. The results vary depending on Body Composition, Segmental Fat Percentage, Individual Metabolism and Lymphatic Drainage.

One can expect gradual thinning of the Fat layer under the Skin. This effect is visible in loss of inches and gradual loosening of clothes over a period of 3 to 4 weeks.

After Fat loss and Inch Loss the excess saggy skin can be treated by Hi-NARF i.e. High Non Ablative Radio Frequency.

This technique is used to repair the elasticity of the skin and to tighten it.

It thus restores the youthful look of the skin

Surgical Or Non-Surgical?


  • Non-Surgical
  • No pain
  • No scars
  • No DownTime

The treatment is done by trained personnel and qualified Medical Professionals Doctors.

U – Lipo is primarily for Inch Loss. Weight loss is achieved by Easy Meal Plans that are advised in conjunction with the U – Lipo treatment . These meal plans also ensure maximum benefit from the U – Lipo.
