There are so many different liposuction techniques out there. What are some non-surgical options, what do they treat, and how effective are they?
It seems that every few months a new non-surgical procedure is being developed for fat reduction. None of these techniques are nearly as effective as either laser liposuction or traditional liposuction. Laser liposuction is performed under local anesthesia and the recovery period is a couple of days.
The non-surgical approaches do not involve liposuction, but, instead, use laser energy to penetrate the skin to destroy the fat cells and reduce excess fat. I have seen results that vary significantly with the use of these non invasive laser fat reduction techniques.
