As you begin to prepare for summer, you will want to get yourself beach-body ready. If you struggle with stubborn pockets of fat over your belly and hips or if you have sagging abdominal skin, ThermaLipo may be right for you.
ThermaLipo is an amazing alternative to tummy tucks that may be right for individuals who have sagging skin following weight loss, pregnancy or aging as well as excessive fat in the area that has not responded well to normal diet and weight loss techniques. This special combination of treatments has been used successfully by Dr. Nowak in Chula Vista with great results and can tighten the skin while eliminating fat from the area.
This procedure has fewer risks of complications than traditional liposuction does. Once the anesthetic has been injected, Dr. Nowak will begin the procedure. Vibration is used to liquefy the fat cells before they are suctioned out of the body through the catheter. This procedure is sometimes called the tickle lipo because of the vibratory sensation.
Once the tumescent liposuction treatment is completed, it is time for Thermage, a skin tightening treatment that can correct minor drooping and sagging of the abdominal skin. Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of the skin quite comfortably. The machine will keep the outer layer of your skin cool throughout the procedure to prevent complications and to keep you comfortable. However, as the deep tissue layers are heated, the skin is tightened and collagen in the tissues increases to create a younger, more toned appearance to the skin.
ThermaLipo is considered to be a highly effective treatment. It can get rid of fat in the area while also tightening the surrounding skin. You can look sleek, toned and sexy whether you are wearing your favorite sundress or a swimsuit.
Now is the time to get started with the ThermaLipo treatment because you will need to plan on approximately six weeks to recover entirely. Starting now will give you plenty of time to heal before summer hits. While your body will not be fully healed until six weeks is up, you will be able to begin light activities within a day or two and will be able to return to work within a few days to one week.
If you struggle with unwanted fat in your abdomen, flanks and hips as well as drooping skin here, consider a ThermaLipo treatment with Dr. Nowak.
