Which Fat Reduction Treatment Is Right for Me?
Many men and women struggle with stubborn pockets of fat around their body. Even with a healthy diet and strict exercise regimen, excess fat can often remain in trouble areas like your neckline, abdomen, flanks, and thighs. At Saratoga Springs Plastic Surgery, PC, Dr. Steven Yarinsky offers a variety of fat reduction treatments that can help patients contour these areas for a slimmer, more toned-looking physique. You can achieve a more balanced figure with use of some or all of these options:
- Liposuction is the “gold standard” for removing fat cells that all other fat removal devices are compared with. Dr. Yarinsky is an expert in a technique called “LipoPerfection” that uses a combination of external ultrasound energy application and fat suctioning that is ideal for patients with small fat pockets and also for treating those who have more substantial amounts of excess fat. This surgical procedure provides the most consistent results for patients wanting to contour trouble areas and is done right at our accredited office operating facility.
- truSculpt® iD is a non-invasive solution that can provide a slimming effect in areas with stubborn fat. Through the use of radiofrequency technology, truSculpt® iD breaks down excess fat by gently heating the targeted fat cells.
- SculpSure® is another non-surgical option for treating isolated pockets of fat. Using targeted laser heat energy, SculpSure® works to destroy fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue. Over time, these damaged cells are eliminated from the body, leaving behind a more sculpted figure.
Dr. Yarinsky emphasizes that fat reduction techniques like SculpSure®, truSculpt® iD, and liposuction are not intended for significant weight loss, and therefore are not a treatment for obesity. Rather, they are designed to target and reduce specific areas of excess fat for a smoother, more lean body shape.
To determine if you are a good candidate for one or more of these fat-busting solutions, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Yarinsky, and he will help you find the most appropriate treatment for your physical needs and aesthetic concerns.Previous Post
