Do you have stubborn fat on your body that just won’t budge, no matter what you do? Have you been considering liposuction to get rid of it for good?
Before you go under the knife, consider learning about other, less invasive options. Read on to learn more about body sculpting and why it’s a great alternative to surgical procedures.
What is Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting — also known as laser sculpting and body contouring — uses cold lasers to shrink fat cells and help you get rid of your problem areas.
This cosmetic procedure is fast, non-invasive, and doesn’t leave any scars behind.*
Why Choose it Over Surgery?
For many people, body contouring will provide better results than surgical procedures.* Some reasons to choose it instead of liposuction include:
More People are Good Candidates
Because laser sculpting is non-invasive, just about anyone can be a good candidate for the procedure.
Surgical liposuction is only recommended for the following people:
- Individuals with firm, elastic skin
- People within 30 percent of their ideal body weight
Surgical liposuction is also not recommended for people who have poor blood circulation, coronary artery disease, weak immune systems, or diabetes.
Laser sculpting also comes with virtually no risks. Liposuction, on the other hand, can be dangerous and may cause serious complications, including the following:
- Contour irregularities
- Fluid accumulation
- Temporary or permanent numbness
- Skin infections
- Internal punctures
- Fat embolisms
Some of these conditions are rarer than others. But, they can still happen, especially if you’re considered a high-risk patient.
In addition to a number of potential complications, liposuction also comes with a healing process that lasts anywhere from three days to two weeks.
You’ll have to take time off of work and limit your activity following the procedure until the swelling goes down.
Laser sculpting, though, comes with no downtime.* A client can complete the treatment over lunch and return to work the same day. You can even exercise afterward.
It does take longer to see full results from laser sculpting compared to liposuction. But, the wait is worth it for most people since they don’t have to be out of commission for several days after.
Who doesn’t want to lose fat while also saving money?
Cosmetic surgery isn’t cheap, and liposuction is no exception, especially since it usually isn’t covered by health insurance.
Laser sculpting is a much more affordable option, even though it requires multiple treatments.
Not only does it have a lower price tag all around, but you also don’t have to worry about losing money while you take time off of work to recover!
