Women and men who want to reduce stubborn pockets of fat, but prefer a non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction in Mississauga or Toronto now can benefit from LipoSonix®. This non-invasive, high frequency ultrasound treatment targets only specific areas of fat at precise depths beneath the skin. A focused ultrasound beam destroys the targeted fat, and the body's natural cleansing processes flush it away over several weeks.

LipoSonix Procedure

The areas that can be treated with LipoSonix include:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips and flanks
  • Inner and outer thighs

Typically, LipoSonix requires only 1 treatment that is completed in about 1 hour. This is an advantage over other fat reduction machines that require multiple treatments. Because the ultrasound is focused, higher energies can be used than in other machines, which allows for more fat reduction. During the treatment, patients may experience a sensation of cold, warmth, prickling, or tingling. By adjusting the intensity of the ultrasound settings, discomfort can be managed. Premedicating with oral analgesic medication or injecting local freezing into the area to be treated also can be done to improve comfort. Additionally, no incision is required, and no damage is done to the overlying skin.

Because it is non-invasive, the degree of fat reduction is usually not quite as great as with other body contouring methods such as liposuction or tummy tuck. You may also be a good candidate for CoolSculpting®, another non-surgical fat reduction procedure that targets the abdomen, waist, and thighs. Potential complications specific to your procedure will be discussed in detail at your consultation.

LipoSonix Cost & Related Procedures

LipoSonix is a cost-effective alternative to liposuction and it does not require general anesthesia. Cost depends on which and how many body areas are to be treated. It can also be used in combination with other procedures including injectable fillers or Botox Cosmetic®, among others.

After Your Procedure

After the procedure, patient experiences vary. It is normal to experience some temporary redness, discomfort, and bruising. However, there is very little downtime, and patients usually can promptly return to work and normal activities. Complete results can be seen approximately 8 to 12 weeks after treatment. The results are long lasting provided a reasonable diet is maintained.
