Non-Surgical Alternatives to Liposuction

If you’ve been considering liposuction to lose a few pounds and streamline your silhouette, you may not need to go under the knife. Several body contouring and body reshaping treatments can help to trim down your waistline, get rid of unwanted pounds around the hips and thighs, and help you achieve your ideal figure.

Some Non-surgical Alternatives to Liposuction

UltraShape for Fat Reduction

UltraShape is among the most innovative body contouring and fat reduction solutions on the market, and is clinically proven to help you lose fat inches. The non-invasive body contouring procedure was developed by plastic surgeons and scientists for the medical community, and uses ultrasound waves to break down fat cells. After the treatment, the body begins to clear away all of the disrupted fat cells through the natural elimination process. Most people need to undergo multiple treatments over the course of a three to four week period to notice significant results. Still, this procedure promises no downtime, no discomfort and does not require anesthesia.

Mesotherapy to Lose Body Fat

Mesotherapy has been used in Europe for over 50 years, and involves injecting a combination of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and homeopathic medicines into the skin tissues to help break down body fat. The process is designed to eliminate cellulite and get rid of localized fat deposits. Mesotherapy was introduced to the United States in the late 1990s, and has been recognized by the French National Academy of Medicine in 1986 as an integral part of traditional medicine. The procedure can be injected directly into areas such as the buttocks, knees, back and sides of the thighs to get rid of cellulite, and into the skin around the waist or love handle area to eliminate localized fatty deposits.

Thermage for Fat Reduction

Thermage is a skin tightening procedure that is also effective for firming and tightening loose skin. In some cases, it can assist with fat reduction, delivering radiofrequency (RF) waves deep into the dermis to boost collagen production. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, Thermage can help to trigger the weight loss process and promote fat reduction. Only a single Thermage skin tightening treatment is needed to achieve significant results, and you will notice progressive results up to six months after the initial treatment.

VelaShape Body Contouring for Fat Reduction

If you’re struggling to lose a few inches around your waistline or thighs, you may be a good candidate for the VelaShape body contouring procedure. VelaShape uses a combination of bi-polar radiofrequency, infrared light, vacuum massage and mechanical massage to tighten and tone the skin, and also helps to smooth the skin’s surface. The procedure is designed to shrink the fat cells and fat chambers, which in turn helps promote natural fat loss.
