NONSURGICAL FAT REDUCTION

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Nonsurgical and minimally invasive options for fat reduction include technology that uses heat or an injected medication to reduce fat cells. While none of these treatments are a replacement for liposuction, they provide options for patients unwilling or unable to undergo surgery. Nonsurgical fat reduction options use a variety of modalities, including ultrasound, radiofrequency, infrared light, vacuum massage and injectable medication.

Among the procedures that comprise nonsurgical fat reduction are  injection lipolysis (e.g., Kybella), radiofrequency lipolysis (e.g., Vanquish) and laser lipolysis (e.g. SculpSure).

Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have any of the aforementioned procedures.
