#4. LIPOSUCTION - Surgical

 

87% Worth It Rating Based on 7819 Reviews

Average Cost: USD 6,050 / Treatment Area

Google average searches for 'liposuction': 500,000/month (global).

Liposuction removes unwanted fat cells from areas of the body. A plastic surgeon will make tiny incisions in discrete areas, insert small tubes into the fatty tissue, and then suction fat out of the body.

Liposuction will remove the largest amount of fat compared with other fat reduction treatments. Most people see final results in three to six months.

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that usually takes just an hour or two, depending on how many areas you’re getting done.

You’ll have either local (for a small area) or general anesthesia. Either way, make sure you have someone to drive you home afterward.

For tumescent liposuction, the most common technique, your doctor injects a mixture of saline (salt water), local anesthesia, and epinephrine into your tissue. This constricts your blood vessels and reduces bruising, blood loss, and recovery time.

Then they make one or more tiny incisions in your skin and insert a thin tube called a cannula, which they use to break up fat and suction it out into a vacuum.

#5. SMART LIPO - Surgical

 

86% Worth It Rating Based on 2600 Reviews

Average cost:  USD 5,225 / Treatment Area

Google average searches for 'smart lipo': 50,000/month (global).

Smart Lipo is a form of liposuction that uses laser energy to heat fat and soft tissue before it's suctioned out of the body.


Smart Lipo may be less invasive than traditional liposuction because liquefying the fat makes it easier to remove. The heat of the instrument may also increase collagen stimulation to promote skin tightening.


#6. VASER Lipo - Surgical

90% Worth It Rating Based on 207 Reviews

Average cost: USD 6,450 / Treatment Area

Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound energy to melt fat before it is removed through a thin tube called a cannula. This technique makes the fat easier to remove and may be especially useful in areas with larger volumes or denser fat. It also results in a less-aggressive procedure, which may lead to faster recovery times. This method does pose a risk for burns, and as with traditional liposuction, it's not intended to significantly reduce weight, but to address fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.

More treatments for Body Contouring


There are other surgical and non-surgical treatments that target the abdomen and love handles. TruSculpt (86% Worth It Rating) is a nonsurgical treatment that use extreme heat to destroy fat cells. Other surgical treatments include Body Jet Liposuction (85% Worth It Rating), which is similar to the other types of liposuction, but uses water to break up fat.

Airsculpt, a form of laser liposuction is also another relatively new 'brand' of laser liposuction that is being marketed globally. However, according to Dr Afshin Farzadmehr, "This being said laser added to "cook" and melt the fat or sound waves vaser to destroy or liquify fat prior to its suction do not add any advantage over tumescent liposuction but risks such as burn. In the case of "Airscult" it is no different."

There’s also a new treatment, Emsculpt (100% Worth It Rating), that uses an electromagnetic field to stimulate muscle contractions. It’s cleared by the FDA for strengthening, toning, and firming your stomach and butt.


Do results last?

As adults, we do not produce new fat cells. The cells that are destroyed or removed during both surgical and nonsurgical procedures will not come back. However, fat cells do expand when we gain weight. To protect your results after treatment, you will want to maintain a healthy lifestyle including diet and exercise.
