Are you close to your target weight but find that diet and exercise won’t touch some of the fat around your waist and belly? Liposonix is a revolutionary type of non-surgical liposuction. It is the most non-invasive way to remove the bulge around the waist, lose stomach fat, and get rid of love handles. Ask us about other areas that Liposonix can treat as well.
Without the need for incisions, the non-invasive Liposonix System treatment takes only about an hour, allowing you to go down about one clothing size during the weeks that follow.
This custom contouring, fat melting ultrasound treatment is best for people who have just a small amount of excess fat in the middle of the torso.
If you have significant excess fat in the waist and stomach, or if you have excess fat on other parts of the body, surgical liposuction may be a better option for you. Schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Stover, and he will give you advice as to which procedure(s) will help you achieve the results you want. A combination of Liposonix, surgical liposuction, and the hCG diet may be your best defense against excess fat.
A treatment takes about one hour and uses high-intensity ultrasound energy to destroy the targeted fat cells permanently. The technology penetrates deeply without causing any damage to your skin. No anesthesia or sedation is required.
The head of the Liposonix ultrasound device is passed over the targeted areas 2-4 times during the treatment. It sometimes feels cold and causes a prickly or tingly feeling that may be mildly uncomfortable.
The process of losing the fat takes 8-12 weeks after your treatment. As your body naturally heals from the Liposonix body sculpting procedure, the fat cells are eliminated. Most people see results after just one treatment and lose about an inch of fat around the waist and belly.
For about two weeks after your treatment, you can expect some slight bruising, redness, inflammation, and perhaps mild pain. If necessary, you can take over-the-counter pain medication to manage any discomfort you feel.
The discomfort is minimal compared to surgical liposuction, but the results are subtler. You also do not need to wear a compression garment afterward, and you can go back to work immediately.
Absolutely. Liposonix specifically targets the abdomen and waist. Combining Liposonix with surgical liposuction for other areas of the body, along with the hCG diet, can be an effective way to reach your ideal weight. We are the only place in Hawaii where you can experience all three of these treatments.
Other procedures, such as Thermage, can also be combined with Liposonix to tighten and smooth the skin in other areas, including the face, thighs, and buttocks. During your consultation, Dr. Stover can help you choose any additional procedures that will provide you with the results you wish to achieve.
