Liposonix Fat Removal in Cincinnati, OH (Non Invasive Liposuction)
Liposonix is an innovative non-surgical method for permanently reducing unwanted fat. This FDA-approved fat removal system uses ultrasound energy to gently melt away excess fat cells.
This is a great non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction procedures for those seeking a modest fat reduction in problem areas.
Liposonix is ideal for treating stubborn pockets or bulges of fat cells that have proven unresponsive to diet and exercise, including areas like the abdomen, love handles, waist, upper arms, back, inner and outer thighs, and buttocks.
However, just about any area of the body can be successfully treated.
Liposonix is effective on both men and women. It is, however, as a type of “Non Invasive Liposuction” best reserved for those of average weight who are seeking a modest fat reduction. Patients who are looking for more dramatic or significant fat removal may be better candidates for traditional surgical liposuction.
The Liposonix Process
Liposonix is an outpatient body contouring procedure performed in the office setting. During treatment, the Liposonix treatment head is applied to the skin on the treatment area where it delivers focused ultrasound energy that travels harmlessly through the skin’s surface. Deep beneath the skin, this energy targets unwanted fat cells, permanently dissolving and destroying them. The dissolved fat cells is then absorbed through the body’s natural metabolic process over the course of several weeks.
The Liposonix procedure is usually a one hour treatment but it depends on the size and number of areas to be treated.
Does Liposonix hurt?
Treatment is well tolerated with little discomfort or pain.
Most patients describe experiencing a tingling, prickling or warm sensation.
Patients may experience some side effects such as skin pinkness, swelling, mild bruising or tenderness after treatment. These side effects are generally mild and fade within a few hours to a few days. Otherwise, there is no downtime and work and other normal activities can be resumed immediately afterward. It takes about two months before the improved body contours can be truly appreciated, and it’s been shown that patients experience an average one-inch waistline reduction after a single treatment. An additional treatment can be performed after two months if patients choose.

Liposonix is an advanced fat removal system that uses high intensity focused ultrasound to permanently reduce unwanted pockets of excess fat. This is a non-surgical, “non invasive liposuction” treatment for those seeking modest fat removal in minimally invasive body contouring procedures or fat reduction treatments.
Liposonix® uses ultrasound energy which is delivered deep beneath the skin where it targets unwanted fat cells. The high intensity focused ultrasound dissolves the fat which is then harmlessly removed over the course of several weeks via the body’s natural metabolic process.
The ideal candidate for Liposonix® is of average body weight but bothered by stubborn areas of fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise, such as the love handles or belly. While patients must be able to “pinch an inch”, those seeking dramatic or extensive fat reduction may be better candidates for traditional surgical liposuction.
Liposonix® is performed in the office setting.
The Liposonix treatment is usually a one hour treatment depending on the size, body mass index and number of areas to be treated.
Liposonix® is very well tolerated by patients with minimal discomfort or pain involved. Patients may experience some tingling, prickling or a sensation of warmth from these non invasive fat reduction procedures.
There is no downtime associated with Liposonix® treatment. While minor skin pinkness, swelling, bruising or tenderness may occur for up to a few days after treatment, work and other normal activities can be resumed immediately.
The results of Liposonix® take about two months to be realized.
