Two Treatments to Help Shave Away Lingering Body Fat
If you’re like most people, you probably have a few “problem areas” where fat tends to linger longer than it does elsewhere. Oftentimes, this is the result of genetics or aging, which can be difficult – if not impossible – to overcome. When diet and exercise fail to produce the expected results, many patients turn to cosmetic surgery for help. For those men and women who prefer a less invasive and more convenient solution for reducing stubborn fat cells, we can help. At MedSuite at Castle Hills in Carrollton, TX, boar-certified physician and aesthetic expert Dr. Anam Tharoo is pleased to offer a wide range of nonsurgical and minimally invasive body contouring solutions to help patients reach their ultimate goals and feel confident about their appearance more easily than ever. In this blog, we’ll take a look at two of the most popular treatments for trimming excess fat – RF fat reduction and laser liposuction – and explore which one may be most appropriate for you.
What fat removal options do I have besides liposuction?
There’s no denying the fat-removing capabilities of liposuction. For many patients, however, the cost, downtime, anesthesia, and other aspects of the procedure make liposuction a less-than-ideal option. In other cases, patients simply prefer a less invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. Fortunately, modern medicine and technology have made it more possible now than ever to reduce stubborn fat cells without the need for extensive surgery and extended downtime. Two popular fat reduction treatments that are often chosen by patients seeking a more convenient alternative to liposuction in Lewisville, TX include:
1. RF fat reduction
This completely noninvasive fat reduction treatment, performed using the advanced Viora V30 system, involves the delivery of radiofrequency (RF) energy to the skin’s surface. This targeted energy heats the cells below, destroying fat cells and simultaneously triggering the production of collagen and elastin. Patients who undergo RF fat reduction can expect both a slimmer figure and firmer, tauter skin.
2. BeautiFill® laser liposuction with fat transfer
The BeautiFill procedure is a two-part treatment that includes both fat removal and fat transfer. To begin, unwanted fat is gently and efficiently harvested using laser-assisted liposuction, which minimizes damage to the nearby tissues and cuts down on postoperative swelling and recovery time. The fat is then purified, without ever being exposed to air, and only the most viable fat cells are isolated for transfer. These fat cells can then be used, if desired, to enhance deflated features or restore lost volume. Common treatment areas for BeautiFill laser lipo plus fat transfer include:
Should I get RF fat reduction or laser lipo body sculpting?
Generally speaking, RF fat reduction is an appropriate solution for patients who have a mild amount of stubborn fat, prefer a noninvasive body contouring treatment, and also hope to tighten up loose skin. Patients with mild to moderate amounts of excess fat who would like to augment other features using a more natural and convenient approach compared to fillers and implants may be good candidates for BeautiFill laser lipo with fat transfer. During your initial consultation for fat reduction in Carrollton, TX, Dr. Tharoo will assess your areas of concern, discuss your ideal scenario and goals, and recommend the most appropriate solution for you.
