With more than 60% of the population struggling with the obesity epidemic, liposuction as a fat removal cosmetic process is no longer considered as a luxury treatment and many alternatives have emerged to make the procedure accessible to the masses. By definition, Liposuction means removal of fat deposits from the body with the help of suction tubes. This procedure requires trained cosmetologists to conduct a surgery on the desired area for fat removal. Although many people want to lose those extra kilos and inches, the fear and stigma of going under the knife still remains. Hence, several non-surgical liposuction and laser liposuction options have come up to effectively remove fat, without you having to undergo any invasive procedure.
Non-surgical liposuction & Laser liposuction are therefore, fast becoming a trend and the most commonly administered procedures are –
- U-Lipo: This unique non-surgical liposuction procedure is becoming widely popular. The process involves targeted application of ultrasound waves on adipose tissue to mechanically break down cell walls to release fatty acids. The Ultra-sound wave action is supplemented by tri-polar radio frequency waves for fat cell release and collagen cell reconstruction.
- Laser Liposuction: This highly targeted non-surgical liposuction procedure employs focus application of laser beams on the areas where diet and exercise don’t impact. Laser liposuction effectively disarranges fat cells and makes them lose their circular shape. As a result, the triglyceride fat is released into the interstitial spaces and removed through body’s natural metabolism.
- Chemical injection/ Lipolysis: This is a body sculpting and contouring procedure which may not directly lead to fat reduction but chemically reduces localized sub-cutaneous fat build up. Phosphatidylcholine (PPC) is the active agent used for lipolysis in non-surgical liposuction.
Depending upon the weight-loss and inch-loss desired these non –surgical liposuction and laser liposuction treatments are administered over multiple sessions for best results.
