Liposuction is an effective treatment that allows you to target specific areas on your body to eliminate excess or unwanted fat. While not an effective weight-loss tool, liposuction can help you get rid of fat on your body that you wouldn’t be able to get rid of otherwise. Different forms of liposuction have been around for nearly 100 years, with the most advanced forms created within the past few decades.
With 7,000+ procedures performed in Middle Tennessee, our team at NuBody Concepts has found a fat removal concept that has proved to be much more effective than traditional methods. It turns out that combining several liposuction methods, from water-based to radio frequency assisted liposuction (RFAL), yields the best results in dislodging and suctioning fat cells from specific problem areas. See below the advantages of this approach.
1. There is no need for general anesthesia.
In its earlier forms, liposuction was a painful, invasive procedure that required the use of general anesthesia. But by combining newer, less-invasive technologies, our boutique approach to liposuction can be performed using a combination of local anesthesia and IV sedation. This helps reduce some of the medical risks associated with general anesthesia. Plus, by eliminating the need for general anesthesia, you’re also eliminating one of the major financial costs associated with the procedure.
2. The gentle procedure involves less trauma to surrounding tissue.
Using gentle water power, water-based liposuction can dislodge and permanently remove fat tissue from problem areas—instead of cutting or scraping away at fat. This gentler method of fat harvesting typically results in less bruising or swelling when compared to other liposuction methods. For many patients, this means a much more comfortable procedure and recovery period.
By following up with laser lipo or RFAL, any resulting loose skin – always a risk with fat removal – is tightened for aesthetic-looking results.
3. Less downtime and a faster recovery.
Because of the gentle water power and the elimination of general anesthesia from the procedure, the NuBody approach provides a faster recovery time and less downtime than traditional methods. Depending on the area of the body, the entire procedure generally only takes a few hours. As an added bonus, most patients are back to their normal activities within a day or two after their procedure, and can resume more strenuous exercise after 5-7 days.
4. Delivers superior, longer-lasting results than traditional liposuction and fat freezing.
Because our customized and highly targeted liposuction method is gentle and technologically advanced, it can produce much more precise and more even results than traditional liposuction. It permanently removes fat cells and produces lasting results, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure. Unlike such treatments as fat freezing, these results are achieved in a single, 2-3 hour procedure and require now repeat treatments.
