There are a number of techniques available for body contouring and fat removal other than liposuction. These procedures do not involve surgery, but their results are not as dramatic as liposuction. Most of these techniques target body fat using energy, usually delivered using heat or cold, to damage and shrink the fat cells. If you have body fat that will not go away with diet and exercise, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons may recommend cellulite reduction in Lexington, South Carolina. The following are nonsurgical ways to reduce body fat:
- Exposure to cold (cryolipolysis)
- Sound waves (ultrasound)
- Light waves (low-level laser)
- Radio waves (radiofrequency)
Liposuction alternatives are not recommended for those who are obese, but for people who have a normal weight and who are mostly fit, but have a few areas of fat that will not go away with diet and exercise. The results vary by individual and the technique used. Multiple treatments may be needed to reach your desired results.
