Liposonix Procedure in New York
No matter how much you exercise or how many diets you try, there are some stubborn spots on the human body that just don’t respond the way you want them to. Liposonix can be performed on any area of the body including thighs, back and arms. One of the most common problem areas for both men and women is the waistline. If you have trouble reducing fat around your waist and prefer to avoid resorting to surgery, LipoSonix is a nonsurgical procedure that may be the perfect solution for you.
New York City-based cosmetic surgeon Dr. Paul Frank offers LipoSonix procedures, a noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment that uses high-intensity ultrasound energy to dissolve fat in and around the waist, including on the abdomen and on the love handles. A typical procedure can take about one hour. Dr. Frank begins by placing the LipoSonix applicator on the treatment area. The energy from the LipoSonix system is used to dissolve fat cells while leaving the skin and other critical tissues unharmed. Through the body’s natural metabolic processes over the course of 8 to 12 weeks, the fat tissue is permanently destroyed.
Following the 2-3 months, the result is a tighter, more shapely waist. While the exact outcome will depend on each treatment program and each individual’s body type, most patients experience a new waist that is roughly 1 inch or about one dress or pant size smaller. In a clinical study, 91% of LipoSonix patients reported a flatter abdomen following a single treatment.
The best candidates for LipoSonix are those looking for a modest reduction in fat, rather than those who may need more significant changes that would be better addressed through liposuction. However, LipoSonix can also serve as a valuable complement to liposuction surgery, depending on what the patient wants to achieve.
The ideal candidate for LipoSonix procedure are those who:
LipoSonix poses minimal risks for patients. During the treatment, patients may experience some discomfort, a prickling or tingling sensation, and varying extremes of cold and warmth. Side effects are few, though bruising, redness, and swelling may occur, none of which are considered serious. As needed, Dr. Frank can provide pain medication during and after treatment.
