Liposuction has been a body sculpting staple for many years. It’s only recently that non-invasive therapies have become available, challenging this grandaddy of fat reduction.
The problem with liposuction, as most people will be aware, is that it’s surgery. For many of us, the thought of surgery to reduce fat on our bodies is daunting. While the incisions used in liposuction procedures are small, they’re still incisions.
But the trauma encountered in the liposuction procedure is significant and related to the introduction of the canula. This is a hollow tube, used to remove fat in targeted areas, functioning almost like a vacuum cleaner. It’s this instrument and the action employed during the procedure which causes bruising and discomfort after the work is done.
Recovery time and pain.
A significant roadblock to liposuction for many people considering fat reduction is the recovery time and pain involved afterward. Most patients report pain from the bruising involved for three days following liposuction. But for seven to ten days afterward, the pain will be encountered when changing from a sitting to a standing position, or getting out of bed (depending on areas treated).
The majority of liposuction patients report that they begin to feel like themselves again after a period of about three months, with discomfort resolving after one month.
With liposuction, there’s also the compression garment to consider. Most surgeons recommend that this is worn for several months following surgery. In addition, even low-impact cardiovascular exercise (cycling, swimming, fast walking) may be forbidden for the first month.
The truSculpt alternative.
truSculpt works by applying heat to areas targeted with a handheld device, using Radio Frequency technology. Skin temperature is continually monitored by the technician performing the treatment, meaning patients experience no discomfort.
A common feature of both liposuction and truSculpt is that the results appear over time. But that’s where the comparisons end. With truSculpt, you’re ready to go back to what you were doing immediately following your session. There are no prohibitions on exercise. In fact, you’ll be encouraged to exercise to derive maximum benefit from the therapy, in concert with healthy eating.
truSculpt is painless, involves no incisions and no special garments to support the therapy. And yet, people who’ve undergone truSculpt with the team at Ethos enjoy striking results, beginning only weeks after the conclusion of their treatments. These are progressive, becoming more noticeable with time.
Because truSculpt causes no damage to any soft tissue except the fat itself, there’s no bruising and no downtime. Your body naturally eliminates the contents of fat cells over time, leaving your skin taut and your body sculpted.
truSculpt non-invasive fat reduction vs. liposuction isn’t much of a contest. If you’re seeking body sculpting that’s painless and involves no recovery time or pain management, it’s a great alternative to liposuction surgery.
