Top 5 Alternatives to Liposuction


What is the best non-invasive fat removal process?

  1. Cool Sculpting

Cool Sculpting is the cool new process that’s taken the cosmetic care world by storm. This is a technology that utilizes a controlled cooling method that can freeze and get rid of the unwanted fat cells minus the invasiveness of surgery and it does not need any recovery time. The fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the lymphatic system. It is particularly effective on love handles, belly and inside thigh. It is also very effective in other parts of the body. The technology used is known as Cryolipolysis.

The entire process takes about 1-2 hours. In the initial few moments, a person may start feeling cold, but the feeling starts dissipating very quickly. The discomfort is not very much and the individual can go about doing their regular things such as reading, watching videos, working on their computers, or can take a nap while undergoing treatment.


  • It requires minimal recovery time.
  • It has little to no side effects; the only side-effects are tingling, numbness.
  • Results are visible after just one treatment.
  • According to clinical tests, this procedure helps achieve a whopping 95% success rate.
  • The real and most dramatic results appear in one or two months.
  1. Zerona

Zerona is one treatment that helps empty the fat cells of their contents. Zerona is a cosmetic procedure that stimulates the fat cells and emulsifies or liquefies the fat. The liquefied fat is then removed from the cell to the outside temporarily via a pore formed in the cell membrane. The liquefied fat is gradually absorbed by the lymphatic system. This helps get rid of millions of fat cells and helps in thinning of the body. The fat cells remain undamaged during the process.

The treatment lasts for about 40 minutes and is considered painless. There is no heat or sensation felt during the treatment.


  • There is no recovery period as such you can get back to your normal activities.
  • Most people may see results after a few treatment sessions say 4-6 sessions.
  • There is an average loss of 3.5 inches from the waist, hips, and thighs that were observed after treatment for at least 6 sessions.
  1. Liposonix

LipoSonix is a noninvasive treatment. And one of the best alternatives to liposuction, this is a high-intensity ultrasound process that is focused on fat and eliminates and destroys the fat cells visible in the surface layers of the skin. Fat cells reach a temperature of 56C for one second, which induces the death of these cells. The fat is continuously targeted but the dermal layer remains undamaged. The natural healing process disposes of the organization that is responsible for getting rid of the treated adipose tissue. It gets rid of the fat with the help of high-intensity focused ultrasound or HIFU

The Liposonix treatments last for roughly one hour. During this treatment, patients may start experiencing moderate to a high level of discomfort; feelings such as sensations of heat or cold such as tingling or prickling. Post-treatment, patients start feeling some degree of discomfort (pain) and experience symptoms such as bruising, redness and edema.

Results are visible after a single Liposonix treatment.

  • According to certain clinical studies, waist circumference can reduce drastically after a single treatment such as 2.5 cm, so you can drop a dress size or pants.
  • The final results are visible in about 8 to 12 weeks, though the results vary from person to person.
  1. UltraShape

UltraShape is another non-invasive treatment that is a good alternative to liposuction and can use a treatment such as pulsed ultrasound targeted for selectively destroying the fat. UltraShape is an ultrasound process that redirects the energy directly changing into stubborn fat that is just below the surface of your skin. The pressure waves can create steam cavities inside fat cells. This enhances the membranes of fat cells making them rupture and keeps the skin vessels, nerves, and safe in the surrounding blood vessels. This is a process that does not utilize heat or cold. The technology used here is non-thermal pulsed ultrasound focused or PFU.


  • UltraShape treatments are fairly comfortable and do not show any signs of treatment.
  • At least 3-4 treatments are required at 2-week intervals and show visible results.
  1. Vanquish

Vanquish is a body contouring device, another one of those alternatives to liposuction that uses radiofrequency (RF) targeted. It is designed in a way that helps target problem areas such as the abdomen (belly and love handle). The treatment uses the technology of radio frequency.
One requires at least 4-5 treatments and each of this treatment last for 30 minutes each.


  • There is no recovery period necessary for this.
  • You can get optimal results within 2 weeks of the final processing.
  • There are minimum side-effects such as heat, mild redness, heat and tenderness in tissues.

However, all said and done, Liposuction is the topmost choice for fat reduction as it helps to get rid of massive amounts of fat and most of the fat does not come back, hence the results are permanent. It is important to stick to a healthy lifestyle after liposuction surgery, to eat right and exercise to maintain the results.


Does Laser Lipo permanently remove fat? Or is Cool-sculpting the best process for removing fat? We think of many questions, when we go for cosmetic procedures such as these and the others we think we are going for weight loss, but actually what we lose is fat. When we start losing fat, our fat cells start to shrink, but the fat cell number remains the same. When we start gaining weight these fat cells start to grow bigger still. Go for a treatment from top cosmetic clinic in Hyderabad that reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas, because once the fat cells are removed, the results are durable.
