Non surgery fat removal techniques are typically used in conjunction with liposuction for the purpose of eliminating unwanted adipose tissue.
The non surgery technique can be more or less invasive, as opposed to liposuction, as in ultrasound, radio frequency, laser or cold compressive therapy to remove fat, sometimes in conjunction with local anesthesia.
Liposuction does not alter the underlying biochemical condition of the body. The liposuction is merely one component of a comprehensive weight reduction plan.
Lifestyle changes and increased physical activity are vital components of any comprehensive weight loss program.
These lifestyle changes will help the body burn fat more efficiently, while also contributing health benefits that cannot be reached through dietary modification alone.
The risks involved with non surgery fat removal include infection, bleeding, blood clots, nerve damage, numbness, skin discoloration, nerve damage and permanent nerve damage.
Many patients who have undergone liposuction are dissatisfied with the results, feeling they have been disappointed with the degree of fat elimination and that their bodies still retain unwanted weight.
A better solution would be to use the non surgery fat removal technique and achieve the same results at a lower cost and risk.
The non surgery fat removal technique is gaining acceptance among patients who prefer not to undergo a surgical procedure to achieve a flatter tummy.
As a result of the growing popularity and effectiveness of the non surgery fat removal technique, many new clinics and plastic surgeons are offering non surgery fat removal services.
Patients seeking non surgery fat removal methods should first consult with their doctor to determine if they qualify for non surgery fat removal.
Patients must also decide if they are willing to accept liposuction as a means of eliminating fat from their bodies.
Liposuction is only recommended for patients who have a substantial amount of excess fat in specific areas. Other patients may be advised to consider other techniques such as natural diet control or exercise.
There are several types of liposuctions available for different areas of the body. Liposuction can be performed under local or general anesthesia, although in some cases, a mild sedative may be required for patients who are undergoing liposuction under general anesthesia.
The surgery is usually an outpatient procedure. Before surgery, a thorough medical examination is required to ensure that any underlying medical conditions are corrected and to eliminate any possibility of complications.
Under general anesthesia, a small incision is made in the skin above the cellulite area. An ultrasonic or laser probe is then inserted into the incised area and fat is removed by using liposuction instruments.
In a non surgery fat removal session, a tiny incision is made in the skin above the cellulite region and excess fat is removed by the use of a tiny tube or brush.
The incised region is then smoothed and the excess fat is drained away by the use of small suction cups.
The entire surgery generally takes less than two hours to perform, although this depends on the type of equipment being used and on the patient’s overall health.
It is important for patients to realize that non surgery fat removal does not offer weight loss and will not reduce inches from the body.
Therefore, it cannot be used to treat pockets of extra fat which may be causing health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, or arthritis.
Liposuction cannot eliminate stomach fat because the presence of stomach fat makes it impossible to suck a treated area through a small tube. Liposuction does not improve posture or remove pockets of fat in the arms or legs.
There are many advantages to non surgery fat removal methods. The methods are painless, and do not require drastic surgery.
They also do not involve any medication or expensive hospital stays. In most cases, patients can go home to their own bed after non surgery liposuction.
Most patients are able to return to work or other normal activities within a day or two. Because the methods are so non invasive, patients usually have fewer health risks than they would experience if they had a tummy tuck or a similar procedure.
People who are unsure of their weight or have tried and failed to diet and exercise may consider non surgery methods first.
If a patient feels better in the mirror after one or two procedures, he or she may decide to get a lapband or biliopancreatic diversion with a mini tummy tuck later.
In some cases, weight loss is seen in a matter of days. However, the results are not permanent. Patients often return to their old habits if they are not patient.
It is always best to consult a physician about the best course of action when trying to lose weight.
