FOCUSED FAT REMOVAL
Since the dawn of civilization, people have been trying to lose weight. Some people believe they will automatically lose weight if they eat healthy foods. Others think they have to exercise for hours every day to achieve results.
While some methods have worked for a while, others have proven ineffective. But what if there was a way to effectively and permanently remove unwanted body fat with no adverse side effects?
What is Focused Fat Removal?
Focused fat removal is a general term used to describe methods or techniques to target and remove specific areas of body fat.
As you probably know, body fat is a layer of tissue that provides insulation and protection for internal organs. For some people, this layer of tissue becomes excess and creates areas of skin that are non-functional or “abnormal.”
Extra body fat can be removed in several ways. Some methods use suction to remove it from the body through incisions or punctures, while others use a scalpel blade. The key difference between these methods is their ability to target specific areas with precision and accuracy.
What Can I Expect With Focused Fat Removal? What Are the Benefits?
Focused fat removal can result in a significant reduction of body fat and skin tightening and smoothing. In addition to cosmetic benefits, some focused fat removal techniques have improved digestive function and heart function by removing excess body fat from around these organs.
What Areas Can Focused Fat Removal Treat?
You can have focused fat removal treatments on the chin, neck, and abdomen. You may also want to consider having focused fat removal treatments on your knees or lower back. Also, there is no reason other body areas, such as your hands or feet, cannot be treated.
What Can I Expect During Focused Fat Removal Treatments?
What to expect during a focused fat removal treatment depends on which treatment you choose. However, a topical anesthetic such as Novocaine helps numb the area for ease of treatment.
Post-treatment can include sutures or stitches to close the incisions depending on the extent of treatment. Pain is usually minimal and typically lasts for a few days to a week after the procedure. Furthermore, these treatments are performed in a hospital setting with experienced personnel; this allows for a very comfortable and safe experience for all patients.
What Can I Expect After Focused Fat Removal Treatments?
After your treatment, you may experience some mild soreness, redness, or swelling. If you have these symptoms, consult your doctor. After treatment, we recommend that you rest and allow your body to heal itself. But, you can resume your routine as soon as possible. You can also look forward to seeing a thinner and more beautiful version of yourself every time you look in the mirror!
What Are My Options?
Focused fat removal has many options that can fit your individualized treatment plan. The first step is to get your body examined by a skin specialist. Once this is complete, you will be able to decide what type of treatment is best for you; this is where the beauty of focused fat removal comes in. You can choose how much fat you want to remove and from which part of the body! Whatever your goal is, some of your options include:
Liposuction is a very invasive method that involves cutting and removing fat from various parts of your body; this can cause many side effects. The recovery time is often longer than other methods. The final results are usually not the same as different methods and may not last as long because the fat will come back.
Laser Liposuction is a non-invasive method that uses lasers to shrink the fat cells in your body, causing them to die off faster. The laser is placed on target areas beneath your skin and emits light that causes the cells to die within minutes or hours. Although this is a non-invasive procedure, it is still painful.
Focused Ultrasound Lipolysis
This method is a non-invasive procedure that does not require incisions or lasers. It uses ultrasound technology to heat specific areas of your skin and make the fat cells disappear over time. This method requires three treatment sessions for at least two weeks to see the best results. There are no side effects and no pain with this method, so you will be able to get the results you desire without any worry about side effects or pain!
Cryolipolysis or cool sculpting is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that involves using a probe that emits cooled air to freeze and destroy fat cells. This technique can be done in your doctor’s office and is not painful, but it can leave some numbness.
