Liposonix treatment from Spalding Plastic Surgery involves using a device that uses high intensity focused ultrasound waves to permanently reduce fat around the waistline without needing surgery. This results in a thinner, attractive and more contoured outline of the waist and the body.
Ultrasound waves are used on fixed, targeted areas of the body. There is no damage or injury to the skin, since only the fat cells beneath the layers of skin are destroyed. A reduction of dress size can occur after just one hour of treatment. The destroyed fat cells are removed by the body's natural inflammatory and healing mechanisms. The fat and cellular debris are engulfed by the body's special cells known as macrophages. Then it is transported by the macrophages to the liver, where it is metabolized. This process can take anywhere between eight to twelve weeks and occurs inside the body naturally, without impeding daily activities.
Liposonix is ideal for patients who are moderately overweight and whose BMI, or body mass index, is below 30. It is not recommended for severely obese people. For people with a BMI over 30, liposuction is recommended.
Liposonix is mainly recommended for decreasing fat around the waistline, but it may also be used for reducing fat in other parts of the body. This procedure does not remove fat but instead metabolizes it.
There are very few, mild side effects of Liposonix. The latest generation of Liposonix machines cause practically no discomfort for the patient. Sometimes, patients complain of bruising, redness or swelling after the procedure. While redness will go away within a few hours, the swelling will last for a day or two. Bruising may last up to two week. Your doctor may prescribe medication to help with inflammation and pain.
You’ll notice that your waistline looks smaller between eight and 12 weeks following surgery. An average decrease of approximately 1.8 inches or 4.6 cm of waistline is typical after a one hour session.
