Many improvements have been made to liposuction over the years. The revolutionary new Liposonix® fat reduction method is gentler and can effectively release a large amount of subcutaneous fat from the body without the need for anything invasive. It’s a bit similar to traditional ultrasound fat removal, but it targets the fat better and doesn’t affect the adjacent tissues. If you are looking for a way to achieve better contours for your belly and buttocks, Liposonix® may be just the treatment for you.
Using Sound to Remove Fat
The Liposonix® fat reduction treatment is unique. Instead of using low-frequency, unfocused sound energy as is the case with other ultrasound treatments, Liposonix® uses high-frequency focused ultrasound, abbreviated as HIFU. This concentrated sound energy targets the deeper fat deposits and kickstarts a process that ultimately destroys the fat cells.
The ideal candidate will be a generally healthy adult who is having difficulty getting rid of excess fat in the belly, buttocks and upper thighs. These fat deposits are rather deep, but they give the surface a lumpy or drooping appearance. If an inch of fat can be pinched in the problem area, chances are the fat can be eliminated with the Liposonix® fat reduction treatment. This amount of fat, when dissolved, creates a much flatter skin surface.
How It’s Performed
A handheld device is used to work the Liposonix® magic. Our specialist will place it on the skin and send concentrated ultrasound energy through the skin layers. This energy is not absorbed by the skin, blood vessels or internal organs. Instead, it is absorbed by the fat cells only. A typical treatment that targets fat in the belly or buttocks generally takes about 30-90 minutes to complete. The instrument is passed many times over the skin surface.
The patient will feel a buzzing, somewhat cold sensation, but no actual discomfort. The concentrated energy pulses don’t immediately destroy fat cells. What really happens is that the cells expand and eventually break apart. Over the next few months, the body will redistribute some of the fat and flush out the rest of it.
Most of our clients report at least an inch loss in their waist or hip measurement after the fat is dissolved and flushed away. This is accomplished after just a single treatment session.
