There are various treatments available for those looking to slim down and rid themselves of unwanted body fat. They vary between invasive and non-invasive techniques, each offering unique advantages and drawbacks that should be carefully considered when making an informed choice for themselves. It is vitally important that one understands these differences so they can make an appropriate selection according to individual circumstances.
Invasive techniques involve more extensive procedures, requiring general anesthesia and large incisions in the targeted area. The goal of such an approach is to break up and suction out unwanted fat, as well as shape the area into your desired contours. It may be useful for those suffering from stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to regular exercises and diet.
An emerging body sculpting trend involves disrupting or dissolving fat cells rather than surgically extracting them, known as non-invasive lipolysis. This form of fat removal uses various advanced technologies that target and dissolve subcutaneous fat without disrupting surrounding tissues – typically making this treatment less expensive and with minimal downtime required.
Cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting), radiofrequency energy (FaceTite, AccuTite and Vanquish), ultrasound energy (UltraShape) and laser therapy (SculpSure) are among the most popular non-invasive fat disruption techniques available today, each designed to destroy or reduce unwanted fat cells – often through freezing or melting away techniques – but choosing an experienced dermatologist familiar with these various approaches will provide better solutions tailored specifically for you and your unique body type.
Non-invasive fat reduction treatments have become popular over time. While their results can still be dramatic, their effects tend to be more subtle; you may notice your pants fitting a bit looser or that your stomach appears flatter after one of these treatments.
BodyTite(tm), an exciting new treatment on the market, combines radio frequency energy for skin tightening with electrosurgical fat disruption in one single procedure – without scarring and recovery time typically associated with traditional liposuction procedures. Plastic Surgery of the Face & Body in Wall NJ is proud to be among only a few practices in central New Jersey offering this ground-breaking technology.
To determine if non-invasive fat reduction is right for you, it’s essential to evaluate your goals and expectations. If significant body contouring and fat loss is your aim, liposuction may be more suited than non-invasive options; furthermore, your weight should fall within healthy range for your height and age in order to be considered suitable as a candidate for non-invasive treatments like these.
