Liposonix

liposonixLiposonix is a proven, unique, and effective aesthetic device built on ultrasound technology to deliver Custom Contouring fat reduction. Liposonix ultrasound energy is focused in the subcutaneous fat layer beneath the skin, destroying the fat cells. The destroyed cells are then resorbed by the body. Liposonix can reduce fat, giving a slimmer, trimmer look. The procedure is performed by his medical aesthetician.

Does Liposonix really work?

Yes, patients generally lose one size around the waist or treatment area. Liposonix uses HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) technology to target and reduce fat.

Will Liposonix give me the same result as a tummy tuck?

No. The result is different. Liposonix is best if you are really close to the ideal size that you want to be and you need a little extra help getting there. Liposonix does not remove extra skin, like a tummy tuck would.

Who is the best candidate for Liposonix treatment?

3 key factors are needed for optimal results with the Liposonix treatment. First, patients need to have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 30. Second, you need to have some fat for treatment. A good estimate is if you can “pinch-an-inch” in the area you want treated. A third, and important factor is that you are in good health and have realistic expectations.

Can I immediately tell if the treatment works?

No. The cells are desetroyed by the focused ultrasound. Over the following 8-12 weeks after the initial treatment, these dead cells are resorbed by the body. There is a delayed gratification with this treatment. Again, you can expect a reduction in one size at the waist. With less fat, your body becomes naturally more slim.

What can I expect for recovery time after a Liposonix treatment?

Patients describe a sensation of cold, tingling, or warm sensation after the procedure that can last for a few days. We provide compression garments that are helpful to reduce swelling and improve comfort. Redness and temporary swelling is common for a couple days. There is no restriction to exercise and patients generally are back to their aggressive exercise routines within a couple days after the treatment.
