Thinking about body contouring to help you slim down and shape up? Use this quick guide to help you decide between the latest nonsurgical options and traditional liposuction.
While liposuction requires a significant recovery period, the results can be dramatic. Nonsurgical procedures don’t require any recovery time, but results may be more subtle.
Liposuction provides the most significant body contouring results. During liposuction, a plastic surgeon carefully removes fat using a tool called a cannula. Liposuction is a surgical procedure, which means you’ll have some downtime afterward while you recover. An experienced plastic surgeon will examine you, listen to your concerns, and help you determine whether liposuction could be the right choice for you.
2. UltraShape® Power
UltraShape® Power uses powerful ultrasonic waves to permanently destroy fat cells. UltraShape® Power is completely nonsurgical and you don’t need to rest or recover afterward. In fact, it can be done during your lunch hour. While this treatment is remarkably effective, it can take multiple sessions to achieve your desired results.
Noninvasive body contouring treatments can be the answer for people who’d like to get rid of excess fat without downtime.
3. VelaShape™ III
Another nonsurgical approach, VelaShape™ III uses infrared, radiofrequency and vacuum pressure to stimulate collagen production and dissolve fat cells. Each VelaShape™ III treatment takes under an hour and there’s no recovery period. It can be done during the course of several shorter treatments or one longer treatment session. VelaShape™ III is ideal for people who are looking for a nonsurgical way to target fat and tighten skin.
