Liposuction vs. Liposonix®: What Are the Differences?

While a balanced diet and exercise are necessary for achieving a slimmer figure, it’s common for people to struggle with areas of stubborn fat. Since you can’t “spot reduce,” it can be frustrating and discouraging when you’re working hard and struggling to reach your ideal aesthetic. If this sounds like you, you could be a candidate for a liposuction procedure like traditional liposuction or Liposonix®.

But which option is right for your goals? Keep reading to learn more.

What Is Liposuction?

Traditional liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat pockets through a small cannula tube. Although liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and does not help with obesity or weight loss, it can create a slimmer, more toned appearance you may not have been able to achieve with diet and exercise alone.

Even though you might be doing everything right with your nutrition and fitness regimen, achieving an ideal figure can be incredibly difficult. That’s where liposuction can help.

What Is Liposonix®?

Liposonix® is a variation of traditional liposuction that is less invasive. The procedure still produces the same results, trimming the body and removing fat, but with a shorter recovery time.

Liposonix® is an innovative procedure that uses ultrasound waves. The high frequency of the energy waves reaches through the skin to the fat layer, while the high temperature damages the fat cells beyond repair. The fat will then exit your body over the following eight to 12 weeks after your procedure.

Which Option Is Right for Me?

Both procedures can help you achieve a slimmer figure; however, deciding on the right one for you depends on your goals. For patients interested in a less-invasive option, Liposonix® can provide them with the results they’re looking for with less downtime and recovery. Furthermore, if you have a health history that would make more invasive procedures like liposuction too dangerous, Liposonix® could be the perfect solution.
