A slender body with perfect contours and ideal proportions is the dream of most ladies. Most of the clients of the Plastic Surgery Center request to improve their body shape. Not everyone can remove fat quickly without the help of plastic surgery. Not everyone can control their diet strictly and train aggressively. You may not like it, but you have to completely change your lifestyle.

Being overweight not only affects your physical appearance but also affects your health and triggers the appearance of numerous chronic diseases. Some people will feel less confident and affect their communication with others because of their obese appearance.

Often, even with a complete lifestyle change, pockets of fat that have accumulated over the years cannot be eliminated quickly. No matter how much effort is put in, the dense structure of certain parts of the body will remain the same. Long-term fasting will instead hurt the body and does not achieve the desired results. The root cause of the problem can only be addressed under the guidance of an experienced specialist at a plastic surgery clinic.

There are many methods of fat removal, which can be classified as invasive or non-invasive. Invasive liposuction can quickly remove fat from the abdomen and flanks, but this procedure usually requires an incision on the surface of the body and a long recovery period after the procedure, which can interfere with a person's normal life. And the cost of liposuction is not affordable for everyone.

The non-invasive method of fat removal, as the name implies, does not require anesthesia and does not leave scars from cutting into the body. This does not affect your normal life and does not require a long recovery period. The cost is also much lower than traditional liposuction.

Non-Invasive Fat Removal

In this blog, we will discuss the common non-invasive methods of fat removal. All of these treatments use different physical factors to reduce the volume of subcutaneous fat by destroying and breaking down fat cells, after which the destroyed fat cells are eliminated from the body through normal metabolism. Almost all non-invasive medical device treatments for fat removal are based on this principle.

Results vary depending on individual health conditions, but patients usually see results after 4 weeks, and the results of fat removal will get better over time and with more treatments. We recommend combining this with a lymphatic drainage massage, which helps the fat to drain out of the body more quickly so that the results can be seen more quickly.

  1. Application of RF

RF is short for radiofrequency. Radiofrequency machines can be used to improve body contouring and fat removal. It works by generating low-frequency electromagnetic waves, which are converted into heat, thus raising the temperature of the subcutaneous tissue.

Due to this action, the processes of lipolysis and collagen synthesis are activated and the lymphatic system removes unwanted substances stored in the subcutaneous tissues, including the destroyed fat cells. In the end, you get the effect of cellulite reduction, tightening, and smoothing of the skin. Different RF machines all have slightly different functions.

The duration of treatment for different parts of the body is determined by the aesthetician according to the patient's body condition. Radiofrequency treatment usually shows results immediately after the first session. It is a highly effective, fast, and comfortable treatment, and the results usually last 1-2 years.

  • Body fat removal treatment approximately 60 minutes
  • Rejuvenation of the face, neck, and shoulder 30 min.
  • Treatment around the eyes, lips, forehead 20 min.
  • Double chin removal treatment in about 20 minutes.
  1. Application of Ultrasound

There are two types of ultrasound machines that can help you remove fat. A first option is a machine that uses low-frequency ultrasound. These machines work on the principle of ultrasonic cavitation, where the ultrasound radiation can be focused or unfocused (but usually the latter).

Ultrasonic cavitation is one of the most successful techniques for fat removal available and is excellent at eliminating fat traps. Using ultrasonic cavitation, excess fat can be easily removed from different parts of the body.

Ultrasound works by causing cells to swell and rupture, resulting in damage to the cell membrane and the release of the lipids contained therein into the intercellular space. The lipids will be drained through the lymphatic system to the liver and destroyed.

Ultrasonic cavitation for fat removal is completely harmless, causes no discomfort, and is performed without anesthesia. Each session lasts no more than one hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated. In addition, ultrasonic cavitation treatment improves capillary blood circulation and stimulates the disappearance of the postpartum mesh on the thighs. The stimulation of fibroblasts significantly increases the plasticity of the epidermis.

A second option is a machine that uses high-frequency focused ultrasound (HIFU). HIFU devices work by focusing on high-frequency ultrasound, which causes a localized increase in tissue temperature. In this case, fat cells are destroyed due to their thermal damage, resulting in coagulative necrosis and cell death, but the process does not result in damage to surrounding organs and tissues. This type of device may also have a small cavitation effect, but this is only of secondary importance and does not represent any particular significance.

  1. Low-Intensity Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Low-intensity laser therapy, also known as Lipo Laser treatment, involves the use of a low-intensity laser in the radiation range of 635NM-650NM. This method is non-invasive and the laser radiation is applied to the surface of the body, which does not compromise the integrity of the skin. The treatment is usually performed 2 or 3 times a week (30-40 minutes each time), depending on the area to be treated.

Lipo laser treatment is often used to treat patients who are in good physical condition but need additional body contouring. Lipo laser is ideal when it is difficult to get rid of excess body fat through diet and exercise. Lipo laser treatment of problem areas results in the disappearance of sagging skin, stretch marks, and wrinkles. Non-surgical fat removal using Lipo laser is a very popular and highly requested treatment.

Lipo laser treatment is considered to be an "alternative" to traditional liposuction and is safer than traditional liposuction. Lipo laser treatment does not require general anesthesia. No anesthetic is used during the procedure. The fatty tissue that is broken down is removed through the body's metabolism. Due to the gentle nature of the treatment, the recovery time is very short and patients can return to their normal daily life and work sooner.
