Non Invasive Liposuction Vs Invasive Liposuction


Non-invasive liposuction or cavitation is a good alternative to liposuction for those who want to get rid of those stubborn fat reserves without the pain of incisions. Non-invasive Liposuction has several advantages over the invasive version as it does not require hospitalization and requires no recovery time after treatment.

This method is not the conventional “scalpel savvy” liposuction but it works as one, without contraindications and limitations that liposuction surgery may have.

Non-invasive Liposuction is done with ultra powerful sound waves that converge into the fat cells and after punching through the fat membranes, the fat cells are bombarded with the sound waves and that leads to dissolution of the fat cells into the lymphatic system.  The lymphatic system flushes out the fat within 20-30 days after some cooperation from the liver and other organs.

Ultrasound liposuction only targets the fat reserves under the skin, and the skin, peripheral nerves, bones and other organs are in no way harmed by the sound waves. Liposuction surgery on the other hand could pose some threat to the skin and peripheral nerve fibers.

This method does not require large preparation; the patient can get prepared within five minutes before the procedure and after the session can go back to running, jumping or swimming without problems. No pain, blood or any kind of problems.

It may seem too good to lose a couple of inches in each session without pain… but the fact is this technology works.

Non-invasive liposuction has some limitations:

  • Non-invasive liposuction does not work in visceral fat. Visceral fat is usually the hardened abdominal stuff that you are so desperate to get rid of, but it simply refuses to budge. Non-invasive lipo has little effect on that because visceral fat contains fibroids that cannot be targeted using sound waves.
  • Non-invasive liposuction does not work to eliminate excess skin. A woman who had two sons and has excess skin on the belly will not be able to get rid of the extra skin using non-invasive liposuction. Well, “lipo” means fat, and liposuction (conventional or non-invasive) is supposed to help you get rid of extra fat, not extra skin; so, that doesn’t really qualify for a disqualifier.
  • Non-invasive or not, liposuction is supposed to be treatment for obesity. It’s not going to work on skinny 40 pound people who still want to lose weight.
  • Liposuction, especially ultrasound liposuction isn’t really safe for people with pacemakers just like many other medical therapies.
  • It cannot be done in people with metallic prostheses or orthopedic implants.  There could be magnetic interference and it’s not recommended.
  • If you are pregnant you need to ask your doctor before choosing any new medical therapy, let alone liposuction (invasive or not).

There are absolutely no limitations as far as food and lifestyle are concerned, but it’s a good idea to not have sugar, fatty foods and alcohol within at least 30 days after the surgery.

It is a single session of an hour and you could lose up to 3 cm of fat in the abdomen, back or knees. Three days after and before the treatment, it is recommended that you go on a high calorie fat free diet that consists of lots of soups, yogurts and fruit juices. The procedure must also be followed up with flushing out the remnant fat cells in the intestine with warm water – a liter of warm water a day should suffice. It is also advisable that you have a balanced diet (at least for a month after the treatment), which consists of those foods that are universally associated with healthy living and healthy eating. It is also important to remember that you don’t want the fat to embrace you back and only regular exercise and a healthy living can keep fat at bay.
