The number of fat reduction procedures has increased dramatically in recent years. One reason for this is that there are now so many options to choose from, including CoolSculpting, fat dissolving injections, liposuction, etc. With so many choices, however, it can be hard to decide on the best one for you. So, in this article, you can look at how each of these procedures works and what they offer:
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that freezes away your unwanted fat. It works by cooling the targeted area of your body, which causes your body to metabolize and eliminate the treated fat cells. So, if you want to learn more about CoolSculpting before your consultation, read on.
CoolSculpting is safe and effective for reducing stubborn areas of fat, such as love handles or thighs. The procedure takes about 45 minutes per treatment area and requires no downtime afterward, so you can immediately resume normal activity after each session. In fact, many people choose to have one or two treatments every six weeks to reach their desired results faster.
The procedure itself doesn’t hurt at all, as long as you take some ibuprofen ahead of time (to reduce any swelling). Likewise, there isn’t much discomfort involved in getting rid of excess flab with this non-invasive treatment option.
The laser liposuction procedure is a minimally invasive technique that uses laser energy to remove unwanted fat from the body. During this procedure, small incisions are made in the skin at chosen locations, and a special cannula (a thin hollow tube) is inserted into these incisions. The cannula can be used for multiple purposes, such as delivering drugs or removing fat through suction.
Laser liposuction works by directing concentrated heat onto targeted areas of fat cells, causing them to break down and release their stored contents into surrounding tissues to avoid injury to healthy tissue nearby. This process allows your doctor to safely remove excess fat from specific areas of your body – including stubborn pockets of cellulite – with minimal damage done to surrounding tissues or nerves during treatment sessions using specialized equipment capable of achieving precise results while making it possible for patients themselves (who need not undergo anesthesia during treatment) without having surgery performed under general anesthesia on other parts like thighs.
Fat-dissolving injections are a non-invasive procedure. They are injected into the fat cells and cause them to break down and die. The dead cells are then removed by the body’s natural processes, resulting in a reduction of fat deposits throughout the body that can last up to 2 years.
Because this procedure is so non-invasive, it is also relatively painless. The patient may feel mild discomfort during the injections, but there should be no long-term side effects or complications.
Zerona is a non-invasive, FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to shrink fat cells. It treats areas such as the hips, thighs, and abdomen. And unlike traditional liposuction surgery, Zerona doesn’t require any incisions and doesn’t leave behind noticeable scars. The procedure typically takes between 25 and 40 minutes per area treated and can be performed in your doctor’s office or at an outpatient surgery center near you.
The FDA has cleared Zerona for use in patients who are 18 years old or older with a waist circumference of fewer than 34 inches (86 cm). It’s also not recommended for pregnant or nursing women or those who have active infections in the area where Zerona will be used. Besides, you should not schedule this surgery if you’re planning on becoming pregnant within six months after treatment—or if you know that pregnancy would be dangerous for your health. As such, it’s best not to get pregnant within six months of treatment anyway since there haven’t been any studies done on children conceived after having their mothers undergo this procedure.
The best fat reduction surgery is the one that works for you. So, if you want to be able to see your results immediately and don’t mind a little downtime, then CoolSculpting is probably better suited for you than laser liposuction. However, if you have a lot of stubborn fat that won’t budge with other methods—or if time isn’t on your side—laser lipo or injections could be the answer to your prayers.
