Many people think about getting rid of their unwanted fat via liposuction but they are not always able to have the surgery. Some of them are not capable of taking the necessary time off work while others don’t have the financial means to pay for the procedure. Examining the latest non-invasive liposuction techniques can help patients decide which treatment is right for them.
Although non-invasive techniques can be effective, they do not give the same dramatic results that traditional liposuction can provide. Therefore, these techniques are best for people who are near their ideal body weight but have stubborn pockets of localized fat. Patients should not expect to see more than 25% of fat reduction with these nonsurgical techniques. Nonetheless, non-invasive liposuction techniques can be an excellent alternative to traditional lipo if the patient is not a good candidate for surgery.
Non-invasive fat reduction techniques use a non-surgical approach to target and eliminate fat cells. Although the specific targeting technique may vary, the bottom line is that the treatment is topical. A device is moved along the treatment area in order to kill the fat cells below the surface of the skin. In time, the immune system of the body clears out the damaged fat cells and leaves a sleeker appearance.
