As the demand for non-invasive body contouring has increased, including in New York and Long Island, a new crop of devices have been developed to terminate fat cells without disrupting other types of cells. Liposonix is one of the more interesting devices, along with popular brands like Coolsculpting. Dr. Rokhsar has been featured on local and national TV to showcase and explain fat reduction technologies. He often sees patients from other states and countries that rely on his experience in non-surgical fat reduction.
LipoSonix reduces fat volume by focusing on high-intensity ultrasound energy on the problem area. Once the fat cells have been broken down, the body disposes of the damaged adipose cells. As the body removes the cells over the subsequent weeks, patients typically begin to notice a marked decrease in local fat volume.
Liposonix sessions take up to an hour, during which Dr. Rokhsar can cover the entire abdomen area. Patients usually report various levels of coldness, heat, tingling, or slight discomfort during treatment.
There is not a prolonged recovery period after LipoSonix – patients can usually resume their normal routine after leaving the office. Side effects are temporary and include redness, mild bruising, tenderness, hematomas, and minor swelling. Results generally appear within three months after the first treatment session and can be maintained as long as patients follow their recommended diet and exercise regimen.
LipoSonix is generally intended to treat the following areas:
*Results may vary.
Most healthy individuals are good candidates for LipoSonix, with few exceptions. Patients who are pregnant, using certain hematologic medications, have a BMI greater than 30 (obese), and have less than 1cm of fatty tissue below ideal treatment depth are not candidates for the procedure.
It is important to remember that LipoSonix and similar procedures are not treatments for obesity or a weight loss cure. They are intended for body sculpting and minor volume reduction only.
The Liposonix treatment is a non-invasive and high-intensity focused ultrasound that can diminish waistline fat without surgery. Results can typically be seen with 8 to 12 weeks with an average of 1-inch waistline reduction. *Individual results will vary from patient to patient.
The treatment time depends entirely on the patient’s cosmetic goals, overall health and treatment area. In most cases sessions last for about an hour.
If you would like Dr. Rokhsar to meet with you and evaluate whether LipoSonix or other fat reduction treatments can help you achieve your aesthetic goals, call our NYC or Long Island offices and set a confidential consultation.
