Non-Invasive Liposuction Side Effects and Recovery

A healthy lifestyle and exercise is something that everyone should strive for. Try as we may, sometimes this way of living has no effect on stubborn areas of fat in the body that fail to respond to all-natural fat loss methods. In these cases, people often consider cosmetic surgery, specifically liposuction. Side effects and recovery play a big part in someone’s decision to move forward with this, however. Some do not find the idea of surgery appealing, opting for non-surgical fat loss procedures instead.

Do you have certain stubborn pockets of fat that cause a dip in your self-confidence? Have you always written off the idea of a cosmetic surgery fix as you do not like the idea of surgery? There are a few non-invasive procedure options available at Chelsea Cosmetics such as Liposuction Melbourne. For more information on the side effects and recovery requirements, keep on reading

Non-Invasive Liposuction Procedure Options

Firstly, it is important to consider that non-invasive fat loss procedures provide subtler results when compared to surgical liposuction. The primary advantage of this is higher levels of safety and much shorter downtime.

Coolsculpting is one of the most popular options as it essentially creates no downtime and minimal pain. This procedure does not provide skin retraction, but the fat cell removal is permanent. Each Coolsculpting procedure gets rid of 25 percent of the fat cells in the treated area.

Another non-invasive option is an injection of a fat-dissolving medication which targets the fat cells membrane, killing several cells in the area. This method also leads to permanent fat reduction but does require the use of a needle.

External Laser Fat Lipolysis is another option that uses a long-wavelength laser called ND Yag, which works to dissolve fat by heat effect. This solution works well for uneven skin and small areas of fat.

The final fat-dissolving option is the ONDA machine, which dissolves fat cell membranes and tightens the skin with microwave technology. Primarily used for cellulite treatment, it can also target small areas of fat.

Potential Liposuction Side Effects and Recovery

As the options listed above are all non-surgical, non-invasive procedures, they will not hinder your regular activities. All of these options allow you to resume your regular work immediately after they have been administered.

You will not require any pills or supplements afterwards, and as long as you maintain your weight with a healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise regime, the results will be permanent. There are no significant side effects past mild bruising or soreness which usually subsides in a few weeks.

For the fat-dissolving injections, your recovery process will likely involve some redness or possible swelling, which is a step in the natural process of breaking down fat cells so your body can expel them permanently.
