Non-Surgical Fat Removal in New York

Most women accumulate fat in these places and have found them stubbornly exercise resistant. For men, the stomach and back pose the most problems because that’s where most of the fat tends to deposit. Liposuction has been the gold standard of fat removal for years. But because it is an invasive procedure, a certain amount of downtime must be reserved after surgery.

For those that are surgically averse, board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar can provide many effective non-surgical fat reduction treatments in NYC. To learn more about Dr. Rokhsar and his effective treatments, contact New York Cosmetic, Skin, and Laser Surgery Center.

Get Rid of Fat Without Surgery

Getting the body you want can be tough. Even with strict dieting and rigorous exercise, your body may not respond in the ideal ways. Often, Dr. Rokhsar’s New York nonsurgical fat removal patients complain of stubborn areas of fat that seem immune to everything.

In years past, the only way to eliminate those areas of fat was with a surgical solution, such as liposuction. But modern cosmetic surgery offers current patients a wide variety of methods for removing fat non surgically. This means that you can eliminate those stubborn areas of fat, slim down, and get the body you want without surgery.

Get Slimmer Without Surgery

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:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Bra line fat
  • Arms
  • Chin/Neck

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 appeal to you, talk to Dr. Rokhsar about which option would best help you achieve your goals.

Areas that Are Suitable for Non-Surgical Fat Removal

These non-invasive fat reduction procedures are best for areas such as:

  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Waist

Why Choose Dr. Rokhsar for Non-Surgical Fat Removal in NYC?

As a worldwide expert on energy-based techniques and non-surgical approaches, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar is an exceptional choice for your non-surgical fat removal procedure in New York City. Our offices in NYC and Garden City offer the following non-surgical fat removal procedures:

  • Coolsculpting: This revolutionary procedure uses extreme cold to break down fat cells without harming the skin. This device allows patients to get rid of stubborn areas of fat and end up with a nicely contoured final result. There is no appreciable downtime, and most patients can return to normal activities the same day as their procedure. This makes Coolsculpting a particularly appealing option for many patients.
  • Kybella: This is the procedure that we’ve all been waiting for: an injectable that literally makes fat disappear. Kybella is currently approved for the treatment of submental fat—the double chin. With just a few injections, patients will notice the fat around the jawline begin to diminish, revealing a much slimmer and more youthful-looking face. The double chin can be extremely difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise; Kybella provides patients a way to get the jawline they want without surgery.
  • LipoSonix: This device uses sound to break down fat cells within the body. In much the same way that Coolsculpting uses cold, LipoSonix uses focused ultrasound energy to disrupt fat cells found in the patient’s problem areas. To cover the entire abdomen, the procedure usually takes 30-60 minutes, meaning there’s no significant lost time for most patients (as there is with surgery). This makes LipoSonix a quick and effective way of eliminating unwanted fat.
  • ThermiTight: ThermiTight™ utilizes a breakthrough advance in computerized RF technology to significantly reduce excess, sagging skin as well as fat below the skin’s surface. With this procedure, age lines and wrinkles can be dramatically improved in many areas of the body in just a single treatment lasting about one hour in duration. Dr. Rokhsar is one of the first physicians to offer this revolutionary procedure in the New York area.
  • SculpSure: This novel device uses amplified light energy (that is, uses lasers) to treat fat in the flanks of the abdomen. Most treatments take 25 minutes or so, and patients will see a noticeable impact on the amount of fat around the abdomen. This allows patients to eliminate unwanted bulges and unseemly pockets of fat.

*Results May Vary.

Non-Surgical Fat Removal FAQ

Non-Surgical Fat Removal vs. Liposuction: What’s the Difference?

Liposuction is a surgical technique used to remove excess fat from deposits between skin and muscle. After general anesthesia is administered, small incisions are made across the area and a small tube is inserted. A suction pump is connected and gently removes the fat from the incisions, making the total operation lasting between 30 to 60 minutes depending on the patient’s cosmetic goals.

Lasers such as Liposonix and UltraShape administer ultrasound waves into the fat cells which are then released into the fluid between the body’s membrane. The body then naturally passes the fat through a digestive process, allowing results to progress over time. These non-invasive procedures manipulate fat cells through the skin without harming any other tissue and then use the body’s natural processes to move the fat out of the body safely.

CoolSculpting is another option that relies on research that has found fat cells are more vulnerable to the cold than other cells. Extreme cold temperatures are administered through cooling plates which are then placed over the desired area. Fat cells are solidified and suspended into the body’s fluids which are, just like Liposonix and UltraShape, naturally digested through the body, producing improving results for months after treatment.

How to reduce fat non-surgically?

Non-surgical fat reduction treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years as a way to reduce unwanted fat without undergoing surgery. Here are some of the most common non-surgical fat reduction treatments:

  • Cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting): This non-invasive technology uses extreme cold to dismantle fat cells and help reduce fat pockets. The body then processes and eliminates the dead cells over time.
  • Laser lipolysis: This treatment involves the use of lasers to penetrate the skin and heat up the fat cells underneath, causing them to break down. The body then naturally eliminates the broken-down fat cells.
  • Radiofrequency skin tightening (Thermitgiht, Renuvion, Body Tite): This treatment uses radiofrequency energy or plasma to tighten loose skin while also reducing fat in the treated area. This method is often used in conjunction with liposuction for optimal results.
  • Injection lipolysis: This treatment involves the injection of a medication that breaks down and dissolves fat cells. The medication used for this procedure is called deoxycholic acid or Kybella.
  • Non-surgical lipo (SmartLipo): This procedure uses laser heat combined with small fiber optic cables under the skin to target and break down fat cells, which are then reabsorbed by the body.

While these treatments can be effective, they are not a replacement for a healthy diet and regular exercise. It is also important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine which treatment is best for you.

What is the best non-surgical fat removal?

There are several non-surgical options available for fat removal, each with its own advantages and limitations. Some of the most popular and effective non-surgical treatments for fat reduction include laser lipolysis, nonsurgical fat reduction treatments, SmartLipo, CoolSculpting, Emsculpt, CoolTone, Evolve, Zerona, and Kybella.

Ultimately, the best non-surgical fat removal treatment for an individual will depend on their specific goals and medical history. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine the most suitable option.

How to get rid of belly fat non-surgically?

Belly fat can be difficult to get rid of, but there are non-surgical options that can help. Here are some of the most effective ways to get rid of belly fat without surgery:

  • Laser fat reduction: Laser fat reduction is a non-surgical treatment that uses laser energy to damage the structure of fat cells. The body then eliminates the dead cells. Laser treatments such as SculpSure or SmartLipo use laser heat to target the area and break down the fat cells for the body to reabsorb. Laser treatment is painless and can permanently destroy undesirable fat cells in the body.
  • CoolSculpting: CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses cooling technology to freeze and eliminate fat cells. This treatment works well for small pockets of fat around the abdomen and waistline and can be completed in as little as 35 minutes per treatment area. Patients typically see noticeable results within a few weeks.
  • Ultrasound energy: Ultrasound energy is another non-invasive option that uses ultrasound waves to target and destroy fat cells. The UltraShape procedure uses ultrasound energy to selectively target and break down fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. This treatment can be used on the stomach and thighs and is painless with minimal side effects.
  • Lifestyle changes: Making lifestyle changes such as increasing physical activity and making dietary modifications can help reduce belly fat. Increasing your daily exercise and reducing your caloric intake can help create a calorie deficit, leading to weight loss and fat reduction. Adding more protein, fiber, and healthy fats to your diet can also help promote fat loss.
  • Kybella injections may be used effectively to reduce localized areas of fat in the belly. Kybella works by injuring the fat cells. This reduces the number of fat cells and essentially dissolves the fat.
