The procedure that helps you get rid of the stubborn fat without having to undergo a surgery is known as non-invasive liposuction. The upcoming transitions provide exhaustive information about this procedure.
Many people who are wanting to lose weight, and are tired of dieting and exercising, are resorting to non-surgical liposuction. It helps in removing the pockets of fat from various body parts such as stomach, thighs, hips, upper arms, etc., using non-invasive methods such as lasers, injection of certain chemicals, and ultrasonics. In a regular liposuction procedure, the fat cells are removed surgically with the help of a suction tube known as cannula. Surgeons insert the cannula in the skin through small insertions that break open and vacuum out the unwanted fat deposited under the skin. However, with the advancement in technology, a lot of new non-surgical treatments have been discovered and are effectively being used.
Who Can Opt for It?
However, not all people who are obese can opt for this method.
- People with weakened immune system, diabetes, and heart diseases are not the right candidates for this treatment.
- Other factors such as skin elasticity, weight, and age of a person also matter when it comes to getting the desired results, as it affects the recovery period.
- Young and healthy people are known to get the best results.
Non-invasive Fat Removal Methods
- In this treatment, the fat is broken down with the help of focused radio frequency waves. As most of the fatty cells are destroyed by the waves, this method is considered highly efficient.
- The latest radio frequency liposuction equipment has a hollow probe that easily breaks down and vacuums out the fat deposits. Out here, only a few insertions are made compared to the surgical method.
- However, not many doctors recommend this treatment as it is still in the developing stage.
- This method makes use of electromagnetic wavelength which melts the fat easily. The adipose under the skin is melted by emitting concentrated electromagnetic waves on the target area.
- According to experts it is not readily suggested by doctors, and is not a suitable method for people with excessive adipose deposits.
- This technique essentially involves injecting a person with a liquid containing the drug, amino acids, lecithin, and some holistic compounds. The injected liquid acts as detergent which emulsifies the fat sediments.
- The needle used in mesotherapy is so tiny that the patients generally do not experience any pain.
- This is quite a popular method in Europe and South America, and is known to have lesser side effects.
- In this process, a laser device is placed on the skin that liquefies the fat under the skin. This liquid fat gets collected in the interstitial spaces around the cells, and is then naturally removed from the body through the lymphatic system.
- Though this method is quite popular, it is associated with various risks. One of them is reabsorption of fat after a few days.
- Another disadvantage is that you may have to pay several visits to the laser clinic, and still may not get the desired results.
- The price can vary greatly depending on the type of treatment you opt for. It also depends on the target area, amount of fat in that area, number of sessions you undergo, and your surgeon.
- The minimum average cost of a non-surgical liposuction can be anything between $1,500 to $7,500.
- In many countries, a liposuction treatment is not covered under an insurance. This is because it is considered as a cosmetic surgery, therefore the patient has to bear the cost of the entire treatment.
- It is advisable to cross-check with the laws before beginning the treatment.
These treatments, apart from helping you get the desired shape, have various side effects. It is therefore advisable to consult your doctor well in advance so that you can choose the safest and the most suitable method for yourself.
