Do you have an unwanted tattoo? Maybe you moved on from a relationship, changed your belief system, or just don’t like how your tattoo looks now compared to when you got it. Don’t worry – safe, effective tattoo removal is within reach!
Noninvasive body contouring is one way to get the shape you want without the pain, expense, and downtime of plastic surgery. Davin Haraway, DO, is an established, board-certified physician who oversees permanent fat reduction laser treatments in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, office of TVI Aesthetics. He can explain why noninvasive body contouring is all the rage and which procedure can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Over the last two decades, the number of noninvasive cosmetic procedures has surged by 137%, according to Forbes. During the same time, the number of cosmetic surgical procedures has declined by 16%.
For decades, liposuction was the way to extract fat from problem areas. During liposuction, a surgeon inserts under the skin a hollow instrument called a cannula. A powerful vacuum is attached to the cannula to suck out fat. The procedure is usually carried out under general anesthesia and runs the risk of infection and scarring.
After liposuction, drainage persists for up to a week. During that time, patients are encouraged to wear an elastic compression garment to promote healing.
Liposuction is expensive and painful, and it requires a lot of downtime. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports a 30% decline in lipo popularity in the last 19 years.
Even face-lifts increasingly are being replaced by noninvasive procedures, including dermal fillers, Botox® injections, laser lifts, and ultrasound procedures.
Whereas surgery can sideline you for weeks while you heal, most body contouring procedures have little or no downtime. That means you can return to normal activities, even go back to the office, on the same day as the treatment.
Noninvasive body contouring is considerably cheaper than most surgical procedures. Most noninvasive treatments can be accomplished in the doctor's office, saving you money on hospital stays. Also, most contouring treatments require no anesthesia or only a local anesthetic, so you don't have to pay for general anesthesia.
SculpSure is a noninvasive, fat-removing procedure that uses a laser to destroy fat cells without puncturing the skin. Within three months, your body’s lymphatic system processes and eliminates damaged cells, banishing that fat forever.
The FDA has cleared SculpSure® treatments for these areas:
SculpSure® requires no downtime, and most patients can go back to work and resume daily activities after the treatment. Patients receive 1-4 treatments depending on the fat area targeted. Initial results appear in about six weeks, while you’ll wait about 12 weeks to see optimal results.
