Sometimes a little extra fat can add up to a whole lot of frustration. Many people deal with an extra inch around their midsections that keep them from fitting into their favorite jeans, or makes them feel self-conscious in a swimsuit. It’s “only” an inch, but it feels like the first thing you see when you look in the mirror. It may bulge out when you’re wearing a dress, or show up as a “muffin top” when wearing pants.
If this sounds like you, you may be wondering if there’s something you can do beyond wearing a shaping garment or learning to live with it, because it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
Liposonix was developed for people who don’t need liposuction or a tummy tuck, but have about an inch of excess fat around their middles they want to lose. Liposonix is a non-invasive procedure that offers great results—but it’s not equal to the dramatic change you see with surgery. This treatment is not a replacement for liposuction, but rather, it’s a non-invasive alternative for people who are good candidates for the procedure.
How do you know if Liposonix is for you? In general, you’ll be a good candidate for Liposonix if:
- You’re in good overall health. You don’t have any major health problems or issues that would interfere with treatment.
- You’re close to your ideal weight. Any significant weight gain or loss after the procedure may affect your long-term results. That said, you don’t need to have the “perfect body” to be a good candidate.
- You have about an inch of fat to lose around your waistline. If you have more than an inch of fat, or your problem area is not on the abdomen, talk with your plastic surgeon about other options.
- You’re not dealing with excess skin or loose muscles. If your belly has excess skin and/or loose muscles from being stretched due to weight changes or pregnancy, Liposonix alone won’t solve the issue. A tummy tuck is a great option for those who need to eliminate loose skin and tighten and tone the overall abdominal area.
Treatment typically takes about an hour, and just one treatment is all that’s usually needed for complete results. Even the busiest people can find time in their schedules to get this done, and it’s a great gift to give yourself for being so close to your ideal weight. You’ll be amazed at what one inch can give you—or rather, what happens when it’s taken away!
