We want you to obtain the very best results from us and it's important that everything is explained to you in full
Is ultrasonic liposuction available now?
Yes, just give us a call for a FREE consultation
Does the treatment hurt?
Ultrasonic liposuction is a pain-free procedure and requires no anesthetic
What are the advantages of ultrasonic over surgical liposuction?
No need for general or local anaesthetic
No downtime – patients can return to normal day to day activities immediately!
No risk of infection, scarring, bruising and irregularities
How long does the treatment take?
Each treatment takes approximately 60 minutes
How soon will I see results?
Often results are visible with the first session but will improve further over the course of 4 treatments. We will assess the final result 3 weeks after completing the six sessions. Maximum results require at least 12 to 18 treatment sessions per area.
Will the effect be long-lasting?
The fat cells treated with ultrasonic liposuction will not return or re-grow, so that is a permanent effect. However, the length of time that the body shaping will last for is really in your hands.
How much you eat and how much exercise you take will also affect your long-term body shape. So if you take in more calories than you use, you weight and fat will increase and the permanent removal of fat cells from your treatment will be hidden by your weight gain.
What about future weight gain with fat moving to other areas?
This is a common misunderstanding. Following ultrasonic liposuction, should you experience weight gain or loss, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. Once you have fat removed it is gone. Assuming a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it will not return.
Are there any side effects?
Ultrasonic liposuction is an extremely safe treatment as it is non-surgical and non-invasive.
Occasionally clients report headaches which is due to a lack of hydration and the liver being overload. It is vital that Lipo clients drink plenty of water during their course of treatments.
What happens after treatment?
You will need to avoid alcohol for 4 days after each treatment because your liver will be busy processing the fat that has been broken down by the ultrasonic liposuction therapy. Also try to drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated.
Patient should be advised that following treatment they should maintain a low calorie intake for four days. This will ensure that fat energy released as a result of the ultrasonic liposuction treatment is used by the body.
