Non-surgical fat reduction is a popular option for those looking to reduce fat without the need for surgery. There are a variety of non-invasive treatments available, such as cryolipolysis, laser fat reduction, injectable treatments, ultrasound, and red light therapy. Each of these treatments has its own unique benefits and drawbacks, so it is important to consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon to determine which one is right for you. Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive technology that uses extreme cold to dismantle fat cells and help reduce the fat pocket. A device with panels or in the form of a suction cup is placed on the skin, in the treatment area, where it transmits temperatures that are low enough to freeze fat cells and, basically, destroy them.
As skin, muscle, and nerve tissues freeze at a lower temperature than fat, these tissues remain unharmed. CoolSculpting is the brand name for cryolipolysis. Laser fat reduction works by dismantling subcutaneous fat using controlled heat. A specific laser wavelength is introduced through the skin, heating the fatty tissues to the point where the fat cells begin to break down. A constant cooling mechanism ensures that the skin is not damaged in the process.
SculpSure is the brand of this non-invasive laser technology. Ultrasonic fat reduction uses highly focused sound waves to break down the walls of the fat cells in the treatment area, thus freeing fat from the inside to be metabolized by the body and reducing the size of the fat deposit. Ultrasound energy is transmitted through the skin, causing rapid pressure changes that cause fat cells to break down and leave surrounding tissues unharmed. FDA-approved ultrasound fat reduction treatments include UltraShape, which uses pulsed ultrasound technology, and Liposonix, which uses high-intensity focused ultrasound. Non-surgical, minimally invasive options for reducing fat include technology that uses heat or cooling, or an injectable medication to reduce fat cells. While none of these treatments replace liposuction, they offer options for patients who don't want or can't undergo surgery.
Non-surgical fat removal methods include injections, ultrasound therapy, red light therapy, laser fat reduction, and cryolipolysis. However, injections, or Kybella, are usually only used in the chin area. Sometimes, healthcare professionals use medications in a different way than approved by the FDA. The beauty of this non-invasive fat reduction procedure is that it can be used to treat a variety of areas of the body, such as the thighs, arms, stomach, and buttocks. It can also dissolve persistent fat cells under the skin in areas such as the neck, abdomen, and arms. Body contouring, or body sculpting, is a medical or surgical procedure that aims to reshape an area of the body.
Deoxycholic acid is a natural substance in the body that helps break down fat for digestion. The best way to know if fat reduction without surgery is right for your goals is to consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. During the treatment, you'll experience a slight pulling sensation as the applicator pulls and freezes the fat cells. It's a fast, safe and effective way to permanently reduce unwanted fat without the need for surgery or downtime. Many people have problems with persistent belly fat, but instead of undergoing surgery they may prefer non-surgical removal of stomach fat.
Injectable fat-reducing treatments such as Kybella require advanced knowledge of anatomy and should only be performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon or a provider with equivalent training and experience. Red light therapy doesn't destroy fat cells so results last as long as you maintain a healthy weight. Velashape uses a combination of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energy to attack and heat fat and cellulite. This consultation will help identify if CoolSculpting is an ideal non-surgical fat removal treatment for you. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical method for removing stomach fat and other areas of the body.
