Why is non surgical body contouring better than lipo?
When it comes to undergoing cosmetic treatment, it’s easy to be misled that a surgical option is your only alternative for long term body contouring results, but there are a wealth of non-invasive options now available to replace liposuction.
Once considered the go-to procedure, liposuction surgery was a vastly popular form of surgery in the 1980s and 1990s. Offering patients a ‘quick’ and reliable way of removing body fat, liposuction was a main staple procedure for plastic surgeons across the Western World, most notably being popular in both the UK and USA.
Of course, with the rise of energy-assisted treatments the decline of liposuction soon began, and The ME Clinic offers patients body contouring treatments that can reduce fat without going under the knife.
Body contouring at The ME Clinic
We are changing patient’s lives with body contouring using energy rather than surgery and scalpels. We use Lipofirm Pro for this. Below are just some of the reasons for the rise in these treatments in the UK.
Body contouring is for men as well as women
While you may think this is a treatment primarily sought by women, there’s actually been a surge in male patients seeking non-surgical body contouring treatment. There has been a rise in demand for male cosmetic treatments generally, with more men opting for fat reduction treatments like Lipofirm Pro than ever before.
Body contouring is non-invasive
Unlike liposuction, body contouring treatments are non-invasive. Rather than scalpels, Lipofirm Pro uses energy to reduce the fat and even tighten up loose skin. Radiofrequency energy is delivered via a hand-held device and your treatment will depend largely on the location of the fat you wish to target.
Body contouring can help stubborn fatty areas
Not all patients need to have vast areas of fat shaped and/or reduced. For some, stubborn small pockets of fat can be just as distressing. Body contouring can be tailored specifically to your needs, targeting the precise point you’re unhappy with. So if you have pockets of fat on the upper thighs, or perhaps the bingo wings on the back of your arms are upsetting you, body contouring using radiofrequency energy may be the answer you seek.
Liposuction is an invasive surgery, and leaves visible bruising for weeks post-operatively. It can also be painful, and recovery can be risky with infection possible. Contrastingly, this treatment with Lipofirm Pro is capable of reshaping areas and reduce fat without any pain or down time.
Body contouring requires no down time
Patients don’t require time away from work for extensive recovery time, and with no bruising or swelling let behind no one will know you’ve undergone any form of treatment. Aside from minor initial redness to the treated area (simple due to the heat generated by the energy during treatment) body contouring is something that can fit in to your daily routine.
Choosing your body contouring treatment
Knowing your body contouring treatment is an essential part of successful results. Radiofrequency energy is clinically proven to be safe and effective in the treatment of skin laxity and fat reduction, offering patients a remarkable treatment with minimal risk and side effects compared to surgical options such as liposuction.
