Sculpsure or Liposuction – How to Choose
Date: October 26, 2016
We should all love ourselves as we are – mind, body and spirit. But situations in our lives such as pregnancy, aging and chronic stress change our bodies – not for the better. The result? Unwanted fat that does not respond to diet and exercise.
This article is meant for those who want to reduce fat: that persistent abdominal “pooch” after menopause or pregnancy or those areas of fat around your thighs that just won’t budge or those bulges along your hips and back that seem to have taken up permanent residence. Read on to learn the difference between these fat reduction alternatives, one surgical (Liposuction) and one non-invasive (Sculpsure™).
Liposuction has been one of the most performed cosmetic surgeries for the past several years. Perhaps it’s because Liposuction was the only alternative for permanent fat loss until very recently. Today, we have a new alternative to Liposuction and it’s non-surgical. Sculpsure™, a non-surgical treatment, was approved by the FDA in May of 2015 for permanent fat loss.
Liposuction involves the removal of fat through a small, hollow tube called a cannula. The physician utilizes suction to remove fat cells. Liposuction creates a trauma in the treated area. Patients experience soreness, bruising and swelling for up to 10 days after the surgery. The healing process post Liposuction requires patients to restrict activities for several days. Patients must wear compression garments for several months. Final results are not seen for several months. Liposuction typically involves both a higher cost and greater risks of health complications than Sculpsure™.
The Sculpsure™ treatment (one 25-minute treatment) is typically gentle with minimal or no discomfort, both during and after the treatment. There is no downtime and no need for compression garments. Sculpsure™ utilizes a proprietary laser wavelength which targets the subcutaneous fat cells, heating them to the point of death without affecting the surrounding tissue. The dead fat cells are eliminated from the body via the lymphatic system. Initial results are seen in six weeks; final results are seen in twelve weeks.
