With modern trends in cosmetic care, patients looking to get rid of excess fat no longer deal with invasive surgical procedures. Instead, these less invasive solutions remove stubborn fat pockets in various affected areas without the need for surgery. Some areas treated using nonsurgical solutions include the bottom, thigh, abdomen, and upper arms.
Most noninvasive belly fat removal procedures use laser techniques instead of surgical procedures, which use incisions, anesthesia, and stitches. Patients looking to remove belly fat need to consult an expert before proceeding with a specific procedure.
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
This procedure emits cold laser energy into the affected part and is absorbed by the fat cells. This results in the breaking down of the fat cells for easy reabsorption into the body. This procedure forces fat cells to oust lipids in the body. The body reabsorbs the expelled fat and excretes it via natural processes, making this procedure favorable for most.
Like low-level laser therapy, this procedure uses controlled cooling to kill fatty tissue in the abdomen. After damaging the fat cells irreparably, the body takes the next step of elimination and natural absorption. Clinically obese or slightly overweight patients do not qualify as viable candidates for this procedure.
Unlike cryo lipolysis, laser lipolysis uses heat to destroy fat cells. Instead, surgeons use light-based technology to increase the temperature in the affected areas around the belly. The excess heat induces rapturing of the fat cells, which instantly removes them—patients suffering from visible fat bulges or trouble spots in the abdomen benefit more from the laser lipolysis.
Patients looking to undergo nonsurgical fat removal on the body need to set goals to help the physician recommend a suitable treatment option. Talk to us at Signature & Reconstructive Surgery and get professional advice before you remove belly fat.
