NuBody Liposuction FAQ

Get Answers to Your NuBody Liposuction FAQ

NuBody Liposuction is our personalized procedure that combines the most effective and proven liposuction methods to achieve the best results in body contouring. Depending on your body type and desired aesthetic outcome, we typically use the water-based Body Jet to loosen the largest clusters of fat in the most gentle way, followed by the SmartLipo device to eliminate smaller fat pockets and tighten your skin.The following answers to the most common liposuction questions will help you navigate through your decision making process.

What is the difference between NuBlody Liposuction and traditional liposuction?

Traditional liposuction is the forceful, manual removal of fat using long, sharp cannulas. NuBody Liposuction is a gentler method where the fat is liquefied by the latest technology and removed through the gentle flow of water. While traditional liposuction is performed under general anesthesia, our liposuction at NuBody Concepts is performed using local anesthesia and IV sedation, thereby minimizing the any risks associated with general anesthesia as well as speeding up recovery.

I have heard of the Aqualipo procedure, where can I have that done?

Aqualipo is a revolutionary liposuction technique that was perfected by the surgeons at Nubody Concepts over many years. It is a combination of fat removal methods from Body Jet to SmartLipo to ensure the best liposuction results. With NuBody Liposuction, we have taken our accomplishments as one of the leading Aqualipo providers in the United States to a new level, offering our patients an even more customized body contouring experience.

What is the difference between Coolsculpting and NuBody Liposuction?

CoolSculpting freezes your fat cells instead of flushing them away. Over the course of the weeks following each treatment, your body naturally flushes out these fat cells through your bodily functions. The drawback is that your fat cells are not immediately gone after the procedure, and repeat treatments may be needed.

With NuBody Liposuction, the targeted fat cells are immediately gone after your procedure. Compared to fat reduction with CoolSculpting, NuBody Liposuction delivers better results with a faster procedure.

Does NuBody Liposuction hurt?

NuBody Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure. This means you will not undergo general anesthesia, but rather local sedation as needed. We have many options to achieve the level of sedation desired by the patient—from light sedation, to heavy sedation, to no sedation at all.

Most patients experience little, if any, discomfort during our liposuction procedure resulting from the movement of the cannula. NuBody Liposuction is a much more gentle procedure than traditional liposuction, which involves extensive prodding and poking with the instrument to dislodge fat.

Does a NuBody Liposuction treatment leave any scars?

At the beginning of your NuBody Liposuction procedure, your surgeon makes some small incisions in your skin for the tiny cannula he uses to suction off fat. These incisions are so small that no stitches are needed and scarring, if at all, is very minimal.

Can I have liposuction if I am not done having children yet?

Yes. One does not interfere with the other. The fat that is removed with liposuction will not come back to the treated area(s) even if you become pregnant.

How much downtime can I expect after NuBody Liposuction?

Typically, you can expect to resume your regular activities 1-2 days after your liposuction procedure. In addition, we recommend no strenuous lifting or exercise for up to 2 weeks. We want to help the treated area to mend, giving you a great result without interrupting the healing process.

Do I need general anesthesia during NuBody Liposuction?

No. Your liposuction at NuBody Concepts is done while you are awake and comfortable. The tiny incisions are not sutured or stapled. Therefore, you heal easily and resume most day to day activities within 24 hours.

When can I start exercising again after liposuction?

Gently at 1 week, regularly after 2 weeks

Will I bruise or have swelling from liposuction?

Bruising after our gentle NuBody Liposuction procedure is typically minimal. Some amount of mild swelling can be expected—both resolve quickly as you heal.
