Non-Surgical Liposuction Alternatives Worth Considering

Is there a way to achieve the results of liposuction without surgery? That’s one of the most common questions people ask cosmetic surgeons. Fortunately there are several non-invasive liposuction alternatives that are worth trying. They produce the same results that liposuction does, but they are often less risky and sometimes less expensive.

Lipodissolve

Lipodissolve is perhaps the most popular non surgical alternative to liposuction. It is also one of the latest. The procedure gets rid of unwanted fat through the use of certain medicines and enzymes. These mild chemicals are introduced into the body through tiny injections. Once the fat dissolves, the body just naturally gets rid of it through excretion (i.e. urine).

Lipodissolve is popular because it’s effective for targeting small areas of the body such as the face and neck. It’s also a more efficient method of getting rid of cellulite. In addition to this, patients recover very fast compared to other methods of fat removal.

Mesotherapy

Similar to Lipodissolve, mesotherapy makes use of holistic medication, amino acids and enzymes to break down fat. This procedure is almost painless because very tiny needles are used to administer the injections. With some patients, positive results can be achieved after only one treatment session. Furthermore, just like Lipodissolve, mesotherapy is very effective at getting rid of cellulite.

Thermage

Without incisions or injections, Thermage removes unwanted fat from the body through the use of special laser treatment, which causes tightens the patient’s collagen. As an added side benefit, skin tissue is also tightened. Because of this (and the fact that it’s the most non-invasive alternative to lipo), Thermage is gaining popularity as an ideal and pain-free substitute for face lifts.

VelaSmooth and VelaShape

These lipo alternatives are usually performed together to maximize results. Through the use of infrared and radio waves, fat and cellulite are removed. The target area is then massaged to further reduce the appearance of cellulite and to tighten the skin.

With these advances in body contouring technology, people who are afraid of the risks of surgery can now reap its benefits. Furthermore, since these treatments do not require the use of anesthesia, they are less expensive than liposuction. They also entail minimal risks and do not often have complications; making them more attractive to customers seeking to reverse the effects of aging and weight gain. All of these alternatives are outpatient procedures. Recovery is not lengthy and the results are often more pleasing. Consult your doctor to know which alternative is right for you.
