The aim of all liposuction treatments is essentially to ensure the reduction of fat and its permanent removal from the body. The main difference between non surgical liposuction and its surgical counterpart is that non surgical liposuction uses non-invasive methods to achieve this, rather than physically removing the fat cells under a general anaesthetic. There are a number of great benefits to opting for non surgical liposuction and this is why so many people are choosing the less invasive techniques over the surgical option. Here are a few of the reasons why it might be preferable to opt for non surgical liposuction:
It has the same effect as surgical liposuction. Non surgical liposuction is very effective and can make just as much of a drastic difference to the shape and contours of the body as surgical liposuction. It has taken many years to develop the treatments to make this type of weight loss such a winning formula and the technology that is used is both innovative and advanced.
There is a much reduced pain factor. Rather than a painful operation involving general anaesthetic, non surgical liposuctions methods are usually only mildly uncomfortable if not completely pain free. Usually a laser, ultrasound or the injection of a chemical agent is used to liquefy the fat cells in the body and these are then removed. There is no cutting or sewing and the recovery time is negligible.
You can avoid flabby excess skin. With some liposuction treatments, depending on the treatment, the surgeon and how much fat was removed, the upshot of the treatment can be that the person is left without the fat but with a large amount of empty, flabby skin. However, non surgical liposuction usually incorporates skin tightening at the same time so that the after effects of the liposuction are not as noticeable as they would be after a normal treatment.
You can avoid the general anaesthetic. Any operation with a general anaesthetic is a risk and complications can arise from even the simplest procedures. This is why most medical professionals will advise avoiding surgery unless it is for something really serious that requires knocking out your entire system in order to treat it. It can take several months to recover fully from a general anaesthetic, even if there are no complications during surgery, and it can affect mind, body and general well being on an ongoing basis if not properly administered – is it really worth the risk?
