truSculpt™ Versus Liposuction for Fat Removal
Liposuction is often considered a body sculpting staple and has proven extremely effective at eliminating stubborn fat. Traditional liposuction uses incisions at the target area to gain access to the unwanted fat cells and then removes them with a cannula (thin tube with a hole in the tip) and suction system. At Saratoga Springs Plastic Surgery, PC, we use a special liposuction technique called LipoPerfection®, which utilizes shorter incisions and smaller cannulas. As a result, patients typically experience improved post-operative comfort and an abbreviated recovery time. However, if you have mild to moderate areas of diet and exercise resistant fat and are seeking a noninvasive method of getting rid of stubborn, excess fat, truSculpt™ may be appropriate for your needs.
With truSculpt™ there are no incisions, no surgery, and no downtime. Using a handheld device that is placed on the surface of the skin, radiofrequency (RF) energy is transmitted below the skin’s surface. The heat from this RF pulse can strategically damage the targeted fat cells without harming the healthy surrounding tissues. As your body’s metabolic process takes over, these damaged fat cells are absorbed and exit the body naturally, leaving you with tightened skin and a slimmer figure. It usually takes at least 2 or 3 monthly sessions to reach a plateau. You can begin to notice the results from your truSculpt™ treatment about four weeks after your sessions. After twelve weeks, you should see the full results and your more youthful, contoured silhouette. Additional treatment sessions after the initial 3 monthly treatments can also be scheduled to maximize your final outcome.
