Liposuction, also known as Lipo is the procedure in which the excess fat in the individual’s body is removed. There are also other ways to remove the excess fat out of the individual’s body. These are called non-surgical liposuction methods by the public but they’re not actually liposuction procedures.
Liposuction surgery involves a couple of incisions, for example, small tubes are used to displace the fat inside the patient’s body in order to make it ready for suck-out. The displaced fat is removed with the help of a surgical vacuuming instrument.
Non-surgical liposuction procedures don’t involve and incisions and can be listed as; laser treatment, heating, cooling, ultrasound waves. All these procedures have different methods used during excess fat removal.
Pros and Cons of Non-Surgical Liposuction
Non-Surgical Liposuction, as it says, doesn’t include any incisions. If you would like to get a non-surgical lipo, you’re almost guaranteed to back in your work the day after your procedure. Patients generally don’t experience much pain or swellings after the procedures. It takes less recovery time compared to the original liposuction. Some doctors even say that the patient can go to his/her work the same day the procedure is done. There is always infection risk when it comes to aesthetic procedures, but these procedures don’t include any incisions so the chances are almost zero. Patients may experience just a couple of scars after the procedures but this is normal.
Non-Surgical Liposuction is very efficient when the patient doesn’t have massive fat located in her/his body. Procedures like cooling or laser treatment generally can’t go through deep parts of the fat. They are more useful when the procedure is performed on the skin tissue where the more thin fat is located. If the fat inside the individual’s body is not examined as good as needed before the procedure, these methods may not work efficiently. If the surgeon fail to remove the desired amount of fat, original liposuction surgery should be considered.
