Liposonix is the newest and most advanced method in fat reduction – and it is non-surgical. The procedure uses focused, high-intensity ultrasound to liquefy fat so that it can be removed naturally by the body’s own metabolic methods. Unlike liposuction, there is no surgery at all, no stitches and no recovery time. Liposonix is more aggressive, offers more fat reduction in fewer treatments than other non-surgical fat reduction procedures such as VASER Shape. Leif Rogers, MD is proud to be one of the first cosmetic treatment clinics in the Los Angeles area to offer Liposonix.
Liposonix is ideal for patients who have tried through diet and exercise to lose weight – and don’t have much left besides a few stubborn areas that just won’t go away. It works best on those who are close to their ideal Body Mass Index (less than 30) and in those who have realistic expectations about what can and can’t be done with the procedure. Don’t know your BMI, see where you fit here.
The Liposonix procedure takes about an hour and can result in being up to one size smaller after just one treatment, though some patients may want to come back for additional treatments. As the procedure is completely non-invasive and does not involve any type of surgery, there is virtually no recovery time and most patients are able to return to normal activities on the same day though some patients will experience some minor discomfort and minimal bruising.
