Body contouring alternative to liposuction

You have been successful dieting and exercising but you still have a minimal amount of stubborn fat deposits, especially around your waistline (love handles) and flanks.  You can address these small areas of fat with liposuction or one of the many alternatives to liposuction available today.

Dr. David Amron stays abreast of new developments in cosmetic surgery and regularly assesses body contouring alternatives to liposuction. After much research and review of patient outcomes, Dr. Amron found an effective fat reduction system that he could endorse. The Liposonix™ Custom Contouring™ system has shown excellent results when used as a complementary procedure to liposuction.

When deciding whether to have surgical liposuction or an alternative treatment, such as Liposonix™, the most important part of your decision-making process is to have a consultation with someone who understands your unique body proportions to help you determine which option is right for you.

What is Liposonix™ and How Does the Custom Contouring System™ Work?

Liposonix™ is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates small amounts of subcutaneous fat using ultrasound technology. The Liposonix™  machine emits a high frequency of ultrasound energy that penetrates the skin layers to destroy the underlying fat deposits.

The desired area is treated for 30-60 minutes to target only the unwanted fat. This ultrasound energy creates a lesion in the fat without harming the skin. Over the next 8 to 12 weeks following the procedure, the body will naturally dispose of the destroyed fat, and the body’s new shape will develop. Typical results are about one inch reduction in the size of the waistline.

Who is a Candidate for Liposonix™?

This treatment can be beneficial for patients who want to lose an inch off the waistline or flanks to further refine the body after liposuction or when they have hit their weight loss plateau. Liposonix™ can remove the last inch of stubborn body fat. The procedure takes about an hour and patients can resume normal activities immediately after having Liposonix™. The body will gradually eliminate the destroyed fat cells naturally.

Liposonix™ Frequently Asked Questions:

What does Liposonix™ feel like?
Most patients report a  tingling or prickly sensation during the procedure.

Are there any side effects?
Yes. After treatment, patients may experience redness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort. These effects will subside as the body heals.

Are multiple treatments needed?
Most patients achieve results with just one treatment.

Can removing one inch of fat make a difference?
Absolutely. One inch of fat off the abdomen is about the equivalent of one pant size. It can make a visible difference.

Are there any prerequisites for Liposonix™?
Yes. Good candidates should be close to their ideal weights with a body mass index of less than 30. They should be in good overall health. Because Liposonix™ is a refining technique, it is important that the patient have realistic expectations of what it can do. Candidates should have an inch of fat in the area that will be treated.

Will I have scars?
No. Liposonix™ is nonsurgical. No incisions are made and the ultrasound energy does not harm the skin.
