Fat Reduction
What should I expect from Liposonix Fat
If you’re close to your ideal shape, but need
a little help getting there, Liposonix may
be for you. Liposonix treatments use noninvasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound
to permanently get rid of targeted fat around
your waistline (abdomen and love handles)
without surgery. The average waistline
reduction after just a single one-hour
treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm)–which
typically means one dress or pant size.
Larger treatment areas and individuals who
are slightly over weight may be better treated
with the SmartLipo or BodyJet tumescent
liposuction. Your provider will help you
choose the best option for you.
How does Liposonix Fat Reduction work?
With many other non-invasive fat reduction
technologies, such as radiofrequency and
lasers, energy is highly absorbed or scattered
near the skin surface, thereby limiting
penetration into subcutaneous fat tissue
and delivering only temporary results.
Ultrasound energy, on the other hand, can
be used to penetrate through the skin layers
and into the targeted fat tissue without
harming skin or surrounding tissues. Other
ultrasound body contouring technologies
often use low-intensity, low-frequency, or
unfocused energy which can require multiple
treatments and lead to unpredictable results.
The Liposonix system uses high-intensity
focused ultrasound energy to permanently
destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver
uniform, predictable results after a single
one-hour treatment.
Is the treatment painful?
During treatment, you may feel discomfort,
cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth, which
are generally described as mild.
After treatment, there may be some
bruising, redness, and swelling. Then, for 8
to 12 weeks after treatment, your body will
naturally process and permanently remove
the destroyed fat tissue.
With less fat, your body will be naturally
slimmer, with a sleeker, more contoured

That is the beauty of the Liposonix treatment,
one treatment, in about an hour.
Is Liposonix right for me?
Liposonix is not for everyone. But if you are
close to your ideal size and have stubborn,
unwanted fat around your waistline you
just can’t seem to get rid of with diet and
exercise, then yes, Liposonix may be for you.
The best way to know for sure is to schedule
a consultation. There are also some general
factors that can help you determine if you
are an appropriate candidate.
Candidates for Liposonix treatment must:
Be able to “pinch-an-inch” (2.5 cm) of
fat in the treatment area
Have a body mass index (BMI) equal to
or less than 30
Have good overall health
Have realistic expectations about the
How is Liposonix differ from Zeltiq?
Liposonix and Coolsculpting are both
FDA-approved noninvasive technologies
for reduction of localized fat tissue that
is disproportionate to the rest of the body.
Zeltiq uses cold therapy to reduce the
number of fat cells in areas that can be
pinched between two paddles. Liposonix
uses focused ultrasound energy to destry fat
tissue in a specific, mapped out layer. The
Liposonix applicator is much more focused
and precise, which provides for a more artful body
sculpting than the large applicators of Zeltiq that can
only be used on the abdomen and waist and often result
in a dimple in a localized area of fat that is not artfully
With both procedures, the fat cells that are destroyed
are re-absorbed by the body over a period of several
weeks for a permanent effect.
What should I do to prepare for Liposonix Fat Reduction?
Success requires vigorous daily exercise, a healthy diet,
and hydration with at least 64 ounces of water per day.
This is necessary to burn the fat released following the
Liposonix treatment.
Liposonix Fat Reduction is not intended for those
seeking significant weight loss or for patients who
do not live a healthy lifestyle. No body contouring
treatment, including liposuction, will work without a
healthy eating plan and increased physical activity.
