If you have areas of stubborn fat that diet and exercise can’t get rid of, a fat reduction treatment could be a great option. Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures as it is safe, effective, and permanently reduces fat. However, in recent years, minimally invasive procedures and alternatives have been gaining popularity, requiring no incision, anesthesia, or downtime.
Liposuction is a procedure that involves inserting a small tube into a specific region in the body where there is excess fat. You can treat the thighs, buttocks, stomach, arms, neck, chin, and legs. The surgery is done using local anesthesia to reduce the risk of complications, and it lasts for 1 to 3 hours, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Liposuction costs around $2,500-$5,000 for a long-lasting treatment, and results can be seen after 3 weeks. Full recovery is complete after 6 months.
Some pros and cons of both options involve the following:
Liposuction is an excellent option for reducing large deposits of excess fat, but it does pose more significant risks than non-surgical options. If you are already at a steady, ideal weight, have good skin elasticity, and want to target small, stubborn pockets of fat, a non-surgical fat reduction option may be better. However, your results will be less dramatic, and multiple treatments may be required. Liposuction may be a better option if you want long-lasting results in a large treatment area that only requires one session.
Some great minimally invasive, non-surgical Liposuction alternatives include:
