A healthy amount of fat is indubitably essential for survival and a healthy appearance but when we become careless with our eating habits and start messing around with our routines, we get back a lot more than what we initially bargained for. For patients at or near their ideal body weight who do not need significant reshaping in an area, non-surgical treatments can be a great option to reduce isolated pockets of diet and exercise resistant fat without surgery, and with little to no downtime.
Non-surgical fat reduction includes minimally invasive treatments that selectively break down fat cells in specific areas to reduce the size of subcutaneous fat pockets i.e fat deposits that sit beneath the skin, but above the muscle. These treatments include technology that uses heat or cooling 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. Non-surgical fat reduction options use a variety of modalities, including ultrasound, radio frequency, infrared light, vacuum massage and injectable medication.
Types of Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Procedures
Under the banner of non-surgical fat reduction, there is a wide array of options to choose from depending on your needs and requirements such as:
- Injection Lipolysis
- Radiofrequency Lipolysis
- Laser Lipolysis

All in all, such non-invasive procedures are very interesting alternative to the riskier surgical procedures and also have very favorable reviews.
