Non-Surgical Fat Cell Disruption

Non-invasive fat cell disruption is an aesthetic treatment designed to effectively decrease or eliminate small areas of unwanted localized fat without resorting to any invasive plastic surgery procedures. Today there are various body contouring treatments using cutting edge technology to target and destroy unwanted fat cells, including freezing (CoolSculpting), disrupting them with ultrasound energy (FaceTite, AccuTite and Vanquish), radiofrequency energy exposure as well as red light therapy causing apoptosis (Zerona).

Many FDA-approved noninvasive techniques work by breaking or rupturing fat cell walls to make them empty gradually over time and allow the body to flush them naturally out. Unlike surgical liposuction which involves directly extracting unwanted fat from skin surfaces, non-invasive techniques tend to deliver gradual results as they cause fat cells to release their contents into surrounding tissue rather than permanently decreasing fat concentrations in the body.

Surgical Liposuction Vs Non-Invasive Fat Reduction With surgical liposuction, a surgeon makes small incisions in the targeted body part before breaking up and suctioning away unwanted fat cells with special tools. Although surgical liposuction offers more dramatic and immediate results, its associated risks of infection and recovery times are considerably greater than with non-invasive body sculpting methods.

Laser lipolysis, more commonly referred to as laser liposuction, is one of the safest non-invasive options for fat reduction. A thin laser fibre is inserted into a targeted fat layer via several small incisions and when activated it releases laser energy that causes rupture or liquefaction of fatty acids and glycerol within adipocytes, leading to droplets of triglyceride being released into circulation and naturally eliminated from your system by your body.

Cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as fat-freezing, is another popular approach. This technique involves applying cold temperature exposure directly onto fat cells to crystallize them and trigger natural cell apoptosis which removes damaged fat cells over time from your body through lymph node depositing of dead fat cells that can then be easily filtered off over time.
