At least once in your life, you have probably experienced dissatisfaction with your body. Whether it be wrinkles, excess fat, or just not the shape you want, we’ve pretty much all been there. The professionals at Portland Laser Liposuction understand this. Even though dieting and exercise are proven to help, sometimes you just need that extra push to get your body where you want it to be. Liposuction and its related procedures come in a wide variety of different treatments, processes, and pros and cons. It is important to understand the differences between each in order to find out which is the best for you. Our experts will help you determine the type of procedure that is right for you and ultimately refer you to a professionally licensed medical surgeon that will see your treatment through to the successful end and make sure you are happy with the results.
The Procedure – Liposonix
Invasive fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction, typically carry certain surgical risks and are associated with significant post-treatment recovery downtime. Even newer, minimally-invasive techniques are still surgical procedures. Unlike these types of surgical fat reduction procedures, the Liposonix treatment is non-invasive and patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Patients come in all shapes and sizes, and so does their fat. Other non-invasive body contouring devices can be limited in their ability to treat certain areas of fat and may require several hours and/or multiple treatment sessions to adequately address problem areas. The Liposonix system is highly versatile, allowing control over precisely how and where energy is delivered, for a truly customized treatment in a single one-hour session.
If you’re close to your ideal shape, but need a little help getting there, Liposonix may be for you. Liposonix treatments use high-intensity focused ultrasound to non-invasively get rid of targeted fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) without surgery. The average waistline reduction after just a single one-hour treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) – which typically means one dress or pant size.
Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks (which is the time needed for the body to naturally process the treated fat).
It is important to remember that Liposonix is not liposuction or surgery, is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and exercise,and is not a way to lose weight. But it is a quick, easy way to help you slim that last inch and hit your personal shape goals.
