In the battle to look your best, there’s nothing more frustrating than that stubborn “last inch” you’re trying to shed – especially around your waistline. The Custom Contouring™ capabilities of the Liposonix® System target and eliminate fat around your waist – in your abdomen and in the dreaded love handles – to help noticeably slim your waistline. Sometimes, you just need a little help getting to your ideal shape – a Liposonix treatment may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
The Liposonix treatment is a non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy (HIFU) to permanently destroy fat cells.
The Liposonix treatment has 10 years of research and testing behind its development. It has a well-defined safety profile during and after treatment with very good patient satisfaction. Treatments have been available in Europe, Japan and Canada for several years. It was available in the US starting in January 2012.
The Liposonix treatment uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy. It is the same energy source as diagnostic ultrasound, but it is designed to very precisely target specific areas with high energy to destroy fat cells.
Typically a Liposonix treatment of the abdomen and flanks is completed in about one hour. This may vary depending on the treatment area and your specific needs.
The fat is permanently destroyed in just a single treatment.
This is unlikely. The Liposonix treatment does not produce the saggy skin that you often find with surgical liposuction procedures.
Unlike many liposuction procedures, the Liposonix treatment produces smooth results due to its unique, advanced delivery technology. No cases of uneven or lumpy results have been reported.
The Liposonix treatment is ideal for active, healthy individuals who have at least 1 inch or 2.5 cm of fat to lose in their abdomen or flanks. It is non-invasive, so it is a great solution if you have stubborn fat but don’t want to have surgery.
We encourage you to come in for a consultation to discuss the specific areas of the body that we treat here at our office. The most commonly treated areas are the abdomen, Flanks and thighs.
Although results vary, clinical studies have shown average waistline reduction was about one dress or pant size (1 inch or 2.5 cm reduction). Aesthetic outcomes have been very good for those that have maintained a healthy lifestyle after the procedure.
