Liposonix Or Liposuction: How Do You Get The Results You Want?

If you’ve been trying to hide bulges beneath jackets, tunics, or Spanx (or all of these and more), the idea of liposuction may have entered your mind. Sometimes, it becomes too frustrating to try and disguise prominent flesh. This is the best time to explore the differences between liposuction and non-surgical fat-reducing procedures like Liposonix.

The fact of the matter is that both of these procedures exist because they have something to offer. What we want to help you determine is which one offers the most value for you.


Also known as liposculpture, the liposuction procedure emulsifies fat cells in a target area and then extracts them with gentle suction. The process of removal is aided by the anesthetic-containing tumescent fluid that is introduced to subcutaneous tissue before the liposuction procedure. Because fat cells are “treated” before extraction, the surgery can be performed through tiny incisions, reducing concerns related to scarring.


This non-surgical, non-invasive procedure is performed in the office without the need for sedation or anesthesia. Liposonix prompts the natural elimination of fat cells by targeting them with high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). Clinical trials have demonstrated efficiency equating to inches lost after a single treatment.

How the Advantages Stack Up

Liposuction is one of the leading cosmetic surgery procedures and has been for a long time, due to advantages such as:

  • More extensive fat-reducing capabilities
  • Greater accuracy in contouring
  • Expedited results (minus the swelling and bruising)
  • Possibility for adjunct procedures, such as abdominoplasty

Liposonix is a popular non-surgical treatment for unwanted fat thanks to advantages such as:

  • Non-invasive technology has minimal risk
  • Minimal downtime, if any
  • No bruising or swelling

News Flash!

Neither liposuction nor Liposonix is intended for weight loss. These procedures are categorized as body-contouring treatments, which means they are ideal for creating a better silhouette. With healthy lifestyle habits, the results from either treatment can last years.
