What to Expect From Fat Removal

What to Expect From Fat Removal

Bothered by stubborn fat? You’re not alone. Millions of Americans are right there with you, plagued by fat in one or more areas that just doesn't respond to diet and exercise. 

For years, invasive liposuction surgery was the only option for getting rid of stubborn fat. But liposuction is surgery, and that means incisions, scars, increased risk of infection, and a fair amount of discomfort during your recovery.

Thankfully, today, nonsurgical fat reduction offers another option. In fact, these noninvasive treatments are so popular, more than 350,000 Americans underwent noninvasive fat reduction last year, making it one of the top choices for both women and men.

At Baheri Wellness in Beverly Hills, California, Mehran Baheri, MD, offers state-of-the-art MiniFX and BodyFX® from InMode to help patients eliminate fat and enjoy slimmer, sleeker contours. If you’ve been wondering if a noninvasive fat removal treatment can help you slim down your problem areas, here’s what you need to know.

Noninvasive fat reduction: what to expect

Noninvasive fat reduction typically works by transmitting energy waves through your skin, directly to the fat cells. These waves break down fat cell walls, and your body disposes of the cellular debris over time.

BodyFX and MiniFX use radiofrequency (RF) energy to break down fat, gently heating fat cell walls to liquefy or “melt” them away. During your treatment, the special applicator moves across your skin, using gentle suction to help deliver the RF energy right where you need it.

The applicators are designed to treat both larger and smaller areas of fat, including problem areas in your:

Throughout your body-sculpting treatment, the applicator automatically adjusts the energy level so you get the results you want while staying comfortable. 

Afterward, you can go back to your regular activities while your body begins the process of flushing away the fatty debris over the next few weeks. Most patients benefit from a series of treatments to help them get just the results they’re looking for. 

InMode vs. Coolsculpting

Coolsculpting is another type of noninvasive fat-reduction procedure that’s gaining in popularity. But InMode nonsurgical fat reduction offers a couple of clear advantages.

The first advantage has to do with how these techniques eliminate fat. Coolsculpting uses low temperatures to freeze fat cells, while the InMode family of noninvasive fat removal treatments uses targeted heat to “liquefy” or melt fat. InMode’s special handpieces ensure the heat energy is delivered specifically to the target tissues for smooth, consistent results.

That heat energy is responsible for another benefit that has to do with your skin tone. Radiofrequency energy helps stimulate and firm collagen, one of the building blocks of healthy skin. Collagen forms strong networks inside your skin, helping skin look and feel firm and resilient after an InMode treatment. 

If you want to reduce excess stubborn fat while also firming your skin and decreasing the appearance of cellulite, BodyFX and MiniFX both offer advantages when compared with  Coolsculpting. It’s like getting two big benefits from one procedure.
