Non Surgical Liposuction


Liposuction that is a common procedure has time and again come up with a step up advances making the procedure safer and efficient. One such procedure is non surgical liposuction. A non surgical liposuction may use laser energy and performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia or sedated anesthesia, depending on the amount of fat to be removed.


Non surgical liposuction is performed by injecting a fluid containing a mixture of saline, local anesthetic and epinephrine. The fluid is injected at an area underneath the skin where fat is to be removed. The laser energy may then be applied suctioning out the fat from the body by cannulas inserted through small incisions in skin.


Apart from softening the fat for removal, the laser energy may heat the skin cells and stimulate collagen production. By promoting the collagen production, non surgical liposuction may help to improve the skin appearance.



Liposuction Alternatives


In today’s fast-paced world, people generally have unhygienic eating habits and disrupted lifestyle. This may lead to obesity at a later stage or even early in their life. For such people, liposuction alternatives are a boon. But, the first thought that comes to mind is, what are liposuction alternatives available?


Liposuction alternatives use cooling technology to get rid of fat cells, without damaging the skin. It eliminates the fat cells by relying on biological response of fat cells to low temperatures. The procedure may gradually reduce unwanted fat from abdomen, love handles or flanks and back. Being a non-invasive procedure, it may not require surgery and has minimal side effects. It enables the patient to immediately return to normal activities.


These alternative procedures may be performed by a surgeon who may use cooling panels. The body area to be treated is cooled below body temperature but above freezing. The fat cells may be made non-functional and are eliminated from the body over a period of few weeks. The patient should ensure that these procedures are performed by a board-certified surgeon.



Laser Liposuction


Laser liposuction is the latest technique for removing fat, utilizing laser technology. The technique involves the use of a laser to rapidly dissolve the fat and tighten the surrounding skin almost anywhere in the body. Laser liposuction is highly advanced and performed by best cosmetic surgeons.


The laser liposuction may be performed in the surgeon’s office or clinic. The fatty areas are marked to start the procedure and local anesthesia is used to numb the area. The laser which is a pen-like device is fired close to the skin. Then, the fat cells break up resulting in the fluid release, which is drained away by the body’s natural system. The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding and swelling. The laser also affects the collagen in the skin, which later causes the skin to tighten and shrink.


The results of laser liposuction may be seen 2 months after the treatment. It is a safe and guaranteed procedure for fat removal.



Liposuction Cost


A person opting for liposuction may have to consider various factors related to the surgery. Apart from considering the surgery to be performed, the surgeon’s experience and expertise in performing the procedure, they may also consider about cost of liposuction.

The total cost of the procedure may take into account of both surgical costs and non-surgical costs. The non-surgical cost may involve cost of the operating room, nursing staff, pre-operative lab tests and post-operative garments and supplies. The surgical fees may involve the cost of the surgery.
