With modern skin tightening and fat reducing techniques available from cosmetic surgeons today, your options for body sculpting procedures go well beyond conventional liposuction. In fact, you can see results comparable to liposuction without a single surgical incision from the advanced procedures discussed below.
As the name indicates, CoolSculpting actually works by freezing fat cells so they shrink away. This treatment works over one to two sessions, and it only targets fat cells in areas such as the love handles, belly and hips. The skin and surrounding muscle tissue are unharmed as fat freezes and begins to break down naturally in the body. Results are seen over several weeks as the body disposes of the dead fat cells, so no one will know that you have had any cosmetic procedures at all. Candidates for CoolSculpting are at a healthy body weight and have isolated areas of stubborn fat that won’t budge from the midsection.
TiteFx uses radiofrequency and a vacuum to tighten the skin, kill fat cells and smooth areas of cellulite. This treatment may be used as a replacement for liposuction or in addition to liposuction in areas where skin tightening and cellulite reduction are desired. Cellulite treatment is a benefit unique to TiteFx, as other fat reducing treatments do not improve the appearance of cellulite and can actually make it worse.
