WHAT IS NON-SURGICAL LIPOSUCTION?
Non-surgical liposuction, also called Non-Surgical Body Contouring or Body Sculpting, is one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedures today. It is considered a minimally invasive fat-dissolving procedure with zero downtime and excellent results.
Non-surgical liposuction uses innovative and safe technology suitable for both men and women. It is ideal for working effectively on small areas of fat. You could get up to 55% fat reduction. Although, 25% to 30% is a more realistic goal.
However, bear in mind that non-surgical liposuction is not a good option for those who want to lose a significant amount of fat. This procedure is not a weight-loss treatment! It is designed to work along and increase the effectiveness of a healthy diet and exercise.
Also, if the thought of traditional surgery makes you shudder, this technique is sure to please you. The recovery time for non-surgical body sculpting is down to zero. You will be stress-free and able to resume your activities as soon as the session is over.
With non-surgical liposuction, there is no risk of infection or scarring. Moreover, you could see a cellulite reduction and improvement in skin texture. This translates into a smoother and tighter look with no lumps or dimples.
The three main methods available are CoolSculpting, Radiofrequency, and Ultracavitation. They can use lasers, heat, cooling, or ultrasound waves to “destroy” fat cells and turn them into metabolic products to be naturally removed from the body.
Every option can give you great results depending on your body type and aesthetic goals.
PROS AND CONS OF NON-SURGICAL FAT REDUCTION
LET’S TALK ABOUT COOLSCULPTING
The CoolSculpting procedure is ideal for treating belly fat. This highly effective non-surgical body sculpting procedure uses fat freezing or cryo-lipolysis technique to destroy fat cells.
The fat area is sucked into a cold-plated cup using a vacuum. The walls of this cup keep in contact with the skin for nearly an hour, reaching temperatures between -4 and -7 degrees centigrade.
When the cup is removed, the treatment area will feel solid to the touch and will require massaging to return to its normal shape. This is highly effective on the abdomen, hips, love handles, legs, and buttocks.
The principle of this technique considers that fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperatures compared to the muscles and skin, blood vessels, or nerves. However, the freezing process won’t damage the surrounding tissues.
Each protocol is specially designed for you, considering the skin quality. So, there will be fewer or more radiofrequency sessions scheduled.
The RFAL device passes over the targeted area, and it can heat up to 60 degrees. The heat will lead to the retraction of collagen fibers and fatty tissue. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes.
RESULTS AND RECOVERY
The first results are visible at the end of the session. Depending on the protocol and number of sessions, the volume of fat reduces progressively. Furthermore, the skin will look tighter with less cellulite.
However, for all body shaping techniques, the destruction of fat cells happens through a physical reaction. So, the fat removal cannot take place in one go.
It takes 2 to 3 months for the body to eliminate all the destroyed cells through lymphatic drainage and urine.
When fat cells are removed or destroyed, they do not grow back. However, any remaining fat cells can increase in size and volume over time. This can be due to a poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle.
So, once you complete the protocol, the results are expected to last 1-2 years. As long as you get regular treatments (maintenance session once per month) and don’t have any important weight fluctuations.
After every session, you may present a little redness of the skin or may feel slight pain and numbness. These sensations disappear within a few days. This method may also cause swelling and bruising, but these will last only a few weeks.
The doctor may massage any area of the body treated at the end of the session. It helps to destroy the fat cells and stimulate venous/lymphatic circulation. The patient can repeat this routine daily to speed up the benefits of the treatment.
No recovery time is required. The patient can resume his activities immediately after the intervention.
