Body contouring, whether through liposuction or non-surgical methods, is very popular among men and women.

Both options work when diet and exercise don’t get your body quite where you want it to be, but is one better than the other when it comes to cosmetic services in the fat elimination category?

And which is best for you, minimally invasive liposuction surgery or non-surgical fat reduction?

What Is Minimally Invasive Liposuction?

Minimally invasive surgery such as tumescent liposuction offers a safer, less complicated way to contour your body and reduce fat. The incision your doctor makes is so small, it’s hardly noticeable. 

During this procedure, radiofrequency energy may be used to heat the fat so it’s easier to remove. A small hollow tube called a cannula is used to remove the unwanted fat. The heat also firms and tightens your skin at the targeted site. Minimally invasive lipo successfully and safely removes fat in your arms, abdomen, buttocks, and other areas. 

What Is Recovery Like After Minimally Invasive Lipo? 

Recovery is much easier than with traditional fat reduction surgery. You’ll need to wear a compression garment after surgery to reduce swelling. Your doctor may ask you to avoid strenuous activity for about a week, but you’ll likely be able to return to work after just two to three days. 

What Is Non-Surgical Fat Reduction?

Non-surgical fat reduction is exactly what the name implies. It’s a method of reducing fat without the need for incisions or anesthesia. Evolve Tone is a well-known technology that allows you to reduce fat and build muscle at the same time. 

This is a treatment that can be customized to meet your specific needs, and more than one area of the body can be treated at once. 

Evolve Tone uses electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to force repeated contractions. These contractions work to sculpt and tone targeted treatment areas. Non-surgical fat reduction treatment can be used on your abdomen and buttocks. 

What Is Recovery Like for Non-Surgical Fat Reduction?

Would you believe there is no recovery time? It’s true! You can easily resume your normal daily activities right after non-surgical options including Evolve Tone. 

How Do I Choose Between Liposuction and Non-Surgical Fat Reduction?

Making the decision between minimally invasive liposuction and non-surgical fat reduction is really a personal choice. However, there are some factors that might influence your decision. Ask yourself the following:

  • What are you goals?
  • How much fat do you want to remove?
  • Is building muscle combined with fat reduction important to you?
  • How much time do you want to commit to your recovery?
  • Do you want dramatic results or will you be with a more subtle outcome? 
  • Are you committed to a healthy lifestyle?
  • What is your budget?
  • Are you healthy enough for treatment?

It’s necessary for you to give consideration to your answers and be ready to share them with your provider. You need to schedule a fat reduction consultation before treatment, and that’s when you will work with your provider to create the best treatment plan for you.
