When exercising and dieting are just not enough, it's pretty common at some point, to just give up. Often times this leads to a digression in work ethic, diet quality, mood, outlook on life and all because we can't seem to lose those the last 5 or 10 pounds in our problem areas. Over the past decade there have been some very interesting breakthroughs in cosmetic medical technology. Break throughs that have made thousands very happy. Namely, those who struggle with loose mid-section skin, left over baby weight, as well as those with the dreaded love handles who can't seem to get rid of them despite endless gym visits and strict dieting.
Prior to the early 2000's, when we wanted to take the next step in weight loss, it involved meeting with a plastic surgeon or doctor who performed liposuction. What this entailed for those attempting to lose there last vanity weight was to go under the knife. Literally, for those wanting to tighten up, it meant being surgically cut open whereas fatty deposits can be suctioned out though sterile techniques. Though patients are under anesthesia and cannot feel a thing, when they awake, they can feel just fine and generally regret having the procedure as a result of the pain and discomfort that follows.
With such a huge demand for non-surgical weight reduction options, a solution was bound to be developed and it was. Liposonix was developed by Medicis and earned an FDA approval in 2011. This non-surgical fat reduction system performs in a manner that provides weight loss through the emulsification or melting of fat cells within any given treatment area.
The technology of Liposonix works to sculpt the body by getting rid of fat cells by aiming ultrasound waves at troublesome areas. The creator of the technology says these ultrasound waves destroy fat cells without damaging the above skin or internal organs. As fat cells come into contact with the ultrasound, the cells themselves begin to liquefy which are then metabolized. This Liposonix non surgical fat removal system is designed to provide effective weight loss that cannot be achieved through normal diet and exercise and does not require anesthesia nor surgery. While Liposonix has been FDA approved, it does have it limits and does require the right patient. One of the most common scenarios in which women seek this treatment for is after giving birth. Mother's would ideally like to return to their prior sizes but often times cannot achieve this alone. Though most mothers return to work after 3 months of maternity leave, having Liposonix performed too early post pregnancy can be harmful. Thus, speaking with a cosmetic medical specialist and or family doctor is highly suggested. The 1 to 3 months following birth, women's bodies tend to lose weight at a faster rate than compared to a year or so down the line. As a result of the bod's natural up-tick in metabolism, it is unsafe to have just recently given birth and to then undergo Liposonix as the weight loss may prove to be too fast and the treatment areas, most likely the abdomen and waistline, are still very sensitive.
