If you’re looking for a way to lose stubborn fat without surgery, non-surgical lipo might be the answer. Treatments like cryolipolysis and laser lipolysis help reduce fat in various areas of the body like stomach, thighs, arms and buttocks without needing surgery. In this article, we’ll take a look at what non-surgical lipo involves, how it compares to traditional methods, what it costs, and some frequently asked questions.

What is Non Surgical Lipo?

Non-surgical liposuction is an umbrella term for various treatments that aim to reduce unwanted fat without the need for invasive surgery. Each type of non-surgical lipo uses a different technology to specifically target and eliminate fat cells from the body. Here’s a closer look at some of the popular methods.

Non-Surgical Liposuction Treatments

Comparing FRACS Surgeons, Plastic Surgeons & Liposuction Doctors

CoolSculpting (Cryolipolysis)

This innovative method involves the cooling of fat cells to a temperature that causes them to crystallise and die, without damaging surrounding tissues. Over the weeks following treatment, your body naturally processes and eliminates these dead cells, leading to a reduction in fat layers. CoolSculpting is particularly effective for treating areas like the abdomen, thighs, and back.

Non-Invasive Laser Lipo (Laser Lipolysis)

This technique uses laser energy to penetrate the skin and target fat cells, causing them to heat up and liquefy. The liquefied fat is then either naturally flushed out by the body’s lymphatic system or absorbed by the cells. It’s a popular choice for those looking to enhance the contours of smaller areas like the chin, arms, and around the waist.

Ultrasound Lipolysis

Ultrasound lipolysis utilises high-intensity ultrasound waves that resonate with the fat cells, causing them to break down under the vibration. The destroyed fat cells then release their contents, which are metabolised by the liver and removed from the body. This method is often used for larger areas and can be particularly effective when paired with other treatments.

Radiofrequency Lipolysis

Radiofrequency treatments use energy waves to heat fat cells, increasing their temperature until they are damaged and eventually removed by the body’s natural processes. This method not only helps reduce fat but also stimulates collagen production, which can result in tighter, smoother skin.

Injection Lipolysis

Also known as mesotherapy or lipodissolve, this process involves injecting a solution into localised fat areas. The solution typically contains a mix of enzymes and other compounds that break down fat cells. Over time, the treated fat cells shrink and are metabolised. This technique is often used for smaller, stubborn areas like love handles and under the chin.

Each of these methods offers a non-surgical solution to fat reduction, catering to different needs and preferences. While none of them require significant recovery time, the results and how quickly they appear can vary greatly depending on the technology used and individual body responses.

Does Non Surgical Lipo Work?

Non-surgical lipo techniques have proven effective for many people looking to reduce fat without the complications and downtime associated with surgery. These treatments are best suited for reducing fat pockets and contouring specific areas of the body rather than achieving significant weight loss.

The success of non-surgical lipo depends on several factors, including the technology used, the area treated, and individual biological responses. Most patients see gradual improvements and need multiple sessions to achieve their desired results.

Non Surgical Lipo Vs Vaser Liposuction

While both non-surgical lipo and Vaser liposuction aim to reduce unwanted fat, the procedures differ significantly:

  • Vaser Liposuction: Vaser liposuction is a type of minimally invasive liposuction that uses ultrasound technology to target fat cells. This method involves making small incisions and using a probe to emit ultrasound waves that break apart fat cells, which are then suctioned out of the body. Vaser is generally more aggressive than non-surgical options and can remove larger quantities of fat in a single session. It requires some downtime, typically a few days to a week, and may involve more discomfort and risk than non-surgical treatments.
  • Non-Surgical Lipo: These treatments are entirely non-invasive, involving no incisions or anaesthesia, and typically have minimal to no recovery time. While less immediately drastic in their results, non-surgical methods are preferable for those who want gradual fat reduction without the risks or downtime associated with surgery.

Cost of Non-Surgical Lipo

The cost of non-surgical lipo treatments can vary widely based on the type of technology used, the number of sessions required, and the geographical location of the clinic. Generally, each session may cost anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. For example:

  • CoolSculpting treatments can range from $600 to $1,200 per session.
  • Laser Lipolysis might cost between $1,500 to $2,500 per area.
  • Ultrasound Lipolysis, Radiofrequency Lipolysis, and Injection Lipolysis generally fall within similar price ranges but will vary depending on the size of the area treated and the clinic’s pricing structure.

While non-surgical lipo is generally less expensive than Vaser liposuction, it often requires multiple treatments to achieve comparable results, which can add up in cost over time. It’s important for patients to consider both the immediate and total costs when deciding on a treatment plan.

Non Invasive Liposuction FAQs

What is the best non surgical lipo?

The “best” non-surgical liposuction method depends largely on your specific goals, the areas you want to treat, and your body type. For example:

  • CoolSculpting is highly effective for removing noticeable fat bulges in the abdomen and flanks.
  • Laser Lipolysis works well for smaller, more defined areas needing contouring.
  • Ultrasound Lipolysis is suitable for larger areas

Consulting with a specialist who can assess your situation and recommend the most appropriate method based on your needs is always a good approach.

Does laser lipo work?

Yes, laser lipo works by targeting fat cells with laser energy, heating them until they are damaged and naturally processed out of the body. It’s effective for fat reduction in specific areas and can also tighten the skin, but it’s not a solution for significant weight loss.

Is non-invasive laser lipo worth it?

Non-invasive laser lipo can be worth it if you have realistic expectations and are looking for moderate fat reduction in specific areas. It’s particularly valued for its minimal downtime and lower risk profile compared to surgical options. However, results vary, and multiple sessions may be necessary.

How much weight can you lose with non-invasive laser lipo?

Non-invasive laser lipo is not a weight loss solution but a fat reduction tool. It’s best for sculpting and contouring specific areas rather than contributing to significant weight loss. Typically, patients won’t see a substantial change on the scale but may notice a more toned appearance in the treated areas.

What are the downsides of laser lipo?

While non-invasive, laser lipo can have some downsides, including:

  • Temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area.
  • Potential for uneven results if not performed by an experienced provider.
  • Multiple sessions needed for optimal results, which can increase overall cost.

Can you get rid of fat cells permanently?

Yes, non-surgical lipo methods like laser lipo, CoolSculpting, and others permanently remove fat cells from the body. The treated fat cells are destroyed and then eliminated by the body’s natural processes. However, remaining fat cells can still enlarge if you gain weight, so maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial to preserve the results.
