Original liposuction procedures required general anesthesia, extensive recovery, long-lasting soreness, sagging skin post-surgery, and risks of extensive bleeding and infection. With the innovation of “tumescent” liposuction, many of these issues were decreased or eliminated. However, many people still desired a quicker, more convenient alternative. Fortunately, Dr. Rokhsar remains at the forefront, offering many of these non-surgical options to his patients as they become available to the United States.
Even minimally-invasive liposuction involves incisions, and therefore a variety of risks along with downtime. The advent of non-surgical fat removal means safe procedures that can be done within a lunch hour!
Lasers such as LipoSonix and UltraShape use harmless ultrasound waves to disrupt the membranes of fat cells, releasing their contents into the interstitial fluid, which the body subsequently disposes of. Zeltiq, another new option, simply relies on precisely directed cold temperatures to eradicate problematic fat. All of the above lasers are perfect for reaching the stubborn and unresponsive areas such as:
Non-surgical fat removal options take between 1-6 sessions, depending on the chosen procedure. They are mostly painless, fast, and easy, and nearly everyone is a candidate. Some boast up to 10cm of circumference decrease. However, it is important to remember that due to the mechanism of action, the results appear gradually over time, rather than the relatively instantaneous changes seen in liposculpture.
If the ease, comfort, and safety of non-surgical fat removal appeals to you, talk to Dr. Rokhsar about which option would best help you achieve your goals.
