The physicians at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center specialize in Liposonix®, a non-invasive ultrasound procedure, in Raleigh, Cary and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
Diet and exercise may not be enough to eliminate those stubborn fat deposits on your abdomen and flanks. These problem areas create bulges that may make you feel uncomfortable in certain clothing, and can also be disheartening when you work hard to lose them. Liposuction and other surgical procedures are not always the answer you are looking for. That’s why we also offer Liposonix®, a safe, non-invasive ultrasound treatment that helps your body eliminate fat naturally in just one treatment! One Treatment, One Hour, One Size Smaller!
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposonix® in Raleigh?
Liposonix® is typically recommended for patients who have 1 inch (2.5 cm) of unwanted fat on their abdomens and flanks. You also need to be in good overall health, follow an active lifestyle and have a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or less.
How is the Liposonix® Procedure in Raleigh Performed?
The Liposonix® procedure typically takes about one hour. You may experience some mild discomfort during your Liposonix® treatment. Our staff assesses your discomfort during the procedure to help you remain comfortable. The ultrasound energy is applied to the treatment area using a special device. You may experience mild sensations of cold, prickling, tingling or warmth during your Liposonix® treatment.
What Can I Expect After the Liposonix® Procedure in Raleigh?
You may resume your normal activities immediately after your Liposonix® treatment, including your normal exercise program. You may experience mild redness, bruising and swelling after your Liposonix® treatment. Your body begins eliminating the fat immediately after your procedure, and maximum results occur within eight to 12 weeks. Most patients lose approximately one inch of fat after one Liposonix® treatment. The fat is permanently destroyed, but it is possible to regain fat in the same area, so maintaining a proper diet and exercise routine after the Liposonix® procedure is important.
