Are you looking for a way to reduce fat without undergoing surgery? If so, you're in luck! There are a variety of fat reduction treatments available today, ranging from non-invasive procedures to more invasive ones. Let's take a look at some of the most popular options. Cryolipolysis, also known as Zerona low-level laser, is one of the mildest fat reduction treatments available. It is approved by the FDA for the treatment of the waist, hips and thighs and results can be seen in several weeks or less. According to Zerona, the average patient loses approximately 3.72 inches of waist, hip and thigh circumference in just 6 treatments. If you're looking for more dramatic results, three body contouring procedures – liposuction, tummy tuck and cold sculpting – can help you achieve the look you want.
All three can offer quick and lasting results if you're willing to maintain a healthy diet and stay active. Cold sculpting is a non-invasive treatment that uses a specialized cryolipolysis device to cool unwanted fat cells to the point of death without affecting surrounding tissues. It usually lasts about an hour and most patients require one or two treatments to see noticeable results. Ultrasonic fat extraction is another non-invasive fat reduction treatment that is less aggressive than liposuction. It uses energy created by ultrasound to liquefy adipose tissue before the doctor uses a fine cannula to remove fat. Results can take longer to appear than with other non-invasive treatments, but they are increasingly noticeable in the weeks and months following the procedure. EMSculpt is an ideal treatment for those who want to get rid of fat bumps from their six-pack and mangoes of love.
It uses light-based technology to cause cells to break down and destroy fat cells in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs and outer thighs. After fat removal, the surgeon will evenly distribute the remaining fat cells in the area to achieve a smooth, natural look. Non-surgical fat reduction may be a better option if you're already at your ideal weight, have good skin elasticity and want to treat smaller, more persistent problem areas. The best way to choose between liposuction, CoolSculpting, TruSculpt, BodyTite and other non-invasive forms of fat reduction is to seek advice from a board-certified cosmetic surgeon. Since invasive procedures carry greater risks, it is no accident that there is an increase in the availability of minimally invasive and non-surgical options for those seeking fat reduction treatments and other types of cosmetic surgery.
