Did you know that liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure, and over 80% of patients cite their results as excellent? Liposuction can provide a new figure and a greater sense of confidence along with it.
Despite the high rates of satisfaction and benefits of liposuction, some patients report drawbacks like short-lived results and the invasive nature of the procedure. It’s for this reason that Dr. Simon Ourian at Epione Beverly Hills started offering OptiLipo along with other forms of non-surgical liposuction.
If you’ve ever wondered if you should get liposuction, or how to fix stubborn areas of fat without surgery, read on!
What Is OptiLipo?
OptiLipo is Dr. Simon Ourian’s unique non-surgical liposuction technique. Depending on which procedure would give the best results for a client, Dr. Simon does one or a combination of the following procedures: mesotherapy, cryolipolysis, and ultrasound.
The combination of hand-picked solutions excellently addresses clients fat and inches problem, with an added bonus of smoother skin. The technique can improve skin texture, elasticity, and firmness without the downtime associated with traditional liposuction and skin tightening.
Results are visible in about three weeks after the last treatment. The way OptiLipo works is ingenious because it uses the body’s own healing process to destroy unwanted fat cells.
What Is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a rejuvenation process that’s been around for many years. It’s a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure. When it started, mesotherapy was used to relieve pain and promote the healing of injuries.
To perform mesotherapy, the doctor will inject small amounts of vitamins and homeopathic medications into the skin.
He uses injections to stimulate and target the body’s healing response. It can get rid of cellulite and fat cells in specific areas. The best places to do mesotherapy on are the under the neck, belly, and bra areas.
The procedure takes about an hour to complete and has no downtime after the procedure. Side effects are similar to CoolSculpt: some numbness, redness, and soreness to the area.
Cryolipolysis and Ultrasound
Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure that uses controlled cooling to kill fat cells without damaging the skin. It’s liposuction without surgery. The procedure has no downtime and you can return to daily life immediately after treatment.
There are some side effects, including mild soreness and bruising, and temporary numbness. Cryolipolysis shows results in about three weeks, with eventual permanent tissue reduction of 20-25%.
In contrast, surgical liposuction involves anesthesia as the process involves more trauma. The doctor will perform surgery to suck out the fat. Results are immediate, but the recovery process can be longer.
Ultrasound (USRF) on the other hand, works effectively in tightening the skin, making it cryolipolysis’s best ally.
