Risks and Benefits of Non-Surgical Liposuction Procedures

Risks

Many patients choose less invasive or non-invasive liposuction over surgical liposuction because there are fewer risks involved with less invasive procedures. However, all procedures involve a small amount of risk, even non-surgical procedures and it's important to understand those risks before getting treatment.

Non-Surgical Laser, Ultrasound, Radiofrequency Treatments

Liposonix Ultrasound

Though ultrasonic technologies are generally considered safe, there are some potential risks to consider. The procedure is not entirely painless, but most patients report that the sensations are tolerable and include feelings of prickling or tingling, warmth or coldness, and mild discomfort. Some patients have reported a temporary redness, some bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the areas treated after the procedure. Hematomas or small areas where blood has collected under the skin, have also been reported, but these typically resolve very quickly.

Thermage

Thermage is a relatively safe procedure, however, some patients report redness and swelling in the area that was treated. Though the redness and swelling usually goes away in a few hours, in some cases it can last for a few weeks. Bruising does occur, but very rarely as a result of Thermage. A very small percentage (less than 1/10th of a percent) end up with surface irregularity in the target area treated.

Patients who are having Thermage treatment along the jaw line have reported on rare occasions feeling tingling and soreness for a few days following the procedure.

VelaShape and VelaSmooth

Patients often describe a VelaShape or VelaSmooth treatment as similar to a deep tissue massage, though some patients describe the experience as the sensation of being pinched. There are no serious risks involved in the procedure, but some patients report some redness and bruising afterward. Skin that has been previously damaged may blister. And VelaShape does not produce a permanent change. Maintenance treatments are required to maintain the results.

Zerona

The Zerona laser is only contraindicated for patients with a pacemaker. There are no risks associated with the cold laser treatment for individuals who are in good health overall. Patients experience no pain or discomfort during the treatment and, in fact, find the procedure enjoyable.

Non-Surgical Injections

Non-surgical injections are considered to be experimental by many experts. Injection ingredients are not standardized and often, patients do not know precisely what is being injected under the skin. However, some medical practices in the United States are working to develop safe, standardized protocols. Talk to your doctor if you have concerns about the safety of these procedures.

Lipodissolve

Side effects associated with lipodissolve include swelling, redness, soreness, and bruising. Some patients have reported dizziness, fainting, sweating, diarrhea, or fever in the hours immediately following the procedure. Some women experience spotting or intermenstrual bleeding as hormones are released from the fat cells that are being broken down.

Lumps or nodules deep under the skin have been reported by some patients. These usually resolve on their own in a short period of time. Some patients have also had allergic reactions to Lipodissolve injections, but this is very rare. Talk with your doctor about any medication allergies that you have before the Lipodissolve treatment.

Mesotherapy

There are no serious risks of mesotherapy if the procedure is performed by a qualified professional in the United States. Some countries with less stringent treatment guidelines have performed mesotherapy that has resulted in a number of undesirable side effects and risks.

The side effects associated with a mesotherapy treatment in the United States are minimal. The injections may be somewhat uncomfortable for patients who have a low pain threshold. Patients may also experience numbness, bruising, itching, and swelling for a short period of time at the injection site. Skin discoloration is also common, though this typically resolves on its own within a few days.

Benefits

One of the biggest benefits of doing non-surgical liposuction is that these procedures require little to no downtime and fewer risks and side effects. They are often less expensive as well. Patients can get back to their normal daily activities as quickly as possible following non-surgical liposuction techniques and still enjoy a visible reduction in the amount of fat on targeted areas of the body.

Non-Surgical Laser, Ultrasound, Radiofrequency Treatments

Many non-surgical laser, ultrasound, and radiofrequency treatments are relatively painless and cause very few side effects. Patients can walk out of a treatment session and return to work immediately.

Liposonix Ultrasound

Liposonix is a procedure that produces only mild discomfort. It can be used to treat the abdominal area on the body, reducing the circumference by over an inch. There is little to no downtime involved with a Liposonix Ultrasound treatment.

Thermage

Thermage offers patients tighter, firmer skin in the treated area. The results of treatment are long-lasting. Patients can use Thermage to achieve results in facial areas, improving the deep structure of the skin. The procedure requires no downtime.

VelaShape and VelaSmooth

VelaShape and VelaSmooth require no recovery period. It is particularly useful at targeting cellulite in the subcutaneous layer of the skin. Other non-surgical treatment modalities are not as effective at targeting cellulite as VelaShape and VelaSmooth.

Zerona

Zerona is FDA approved for safety as well as results. It is a totally painless and even enjoyable procedure that requires no recovery period. You can treat several areas of the body in one session and the procedure can target any area on the body from the face to the legs. Patients report losing between 3 to 12 inches using Zerona.

Non-Surgical Injections

In the hands of a skilled professional in the United States, there are a number of benefits to non-surgical injections.

Lipodissolve

Lipodissolve gradulally liquefies fat and then allows the body to metabolize it slowly, generally creating smooth, natural looking results. Not only do the injections break down the fat but they also encourage the production of collagen in the skin, creating a tighter more tone appearance. The procedure requires no downtime or recovery period.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy can reduce the appearance of cellulite and also target fat deposits on a number of different areas of the body. The procedure requires no downtime or recovery period. Healing from the procedure is typically quick and painless.
