Do you have obstinate fat that just won’t budge? Like nearly 50 percent of Americans, all actively trying to drop some weight, are you also trying out a million diets and gym workouts? Do you feel like you’ve tried everything but with zero effect? There are many non-invasive fat removal processes that promise to help get rid of that excess fat. Ultrasound fat cavitation is one of them. But does it really work?
Ultrasound Fat Cavitation: What is it?
It’s another type of non-invasive body contouring method to reduce the appearance of fat on the body. According to the experts, this procedure involves “the use of focused pulsed ultrasound that selectively destroys fat cells. It doesn’t just shrink them, which is what happens when you lose weight. No, it destroys them completely — and you can’t grow them back.”
Put as simply as possible, the ultrasonic procedure destroys the walls of the body’s fat cells thus releasing fat molecules, in the form of triglycerides. Thereafter, the triglycerides are processed by the liver and excreted from the body, naturally. In short, ultrasonic waves convert your fat cells into fatty acids. Your body then disposes of those fatty acids
If you want a tighter, more toned look, this might be just the procedure you need.
But, technically speaking, ultrasound cavitation isn’t a “fat loss” method. Liposuction targets fat more specifically than ultrasound cavitation. With this technique, success is measured by how many inches you have lost after treatment. And the treatment is short and, almost, sweet!
- No need for sedation during this procedure
- You are back to your daily routine immediately after it is finished
- Absolutely no recovery time needed
Typically, it takes about three treatments to actually see the results of the procedure – but many people notice a difference after the very first treatment.
Does Ultrasonic Cavitation really work?
Yes, ultrasound fat cavitation provides measurable results. This procedure is a good option for those who want to lose excess body fat. What happens is this: ultrasound waves penetrate the skin and form bubbles near the fat deposits. When the bubbles burst, the fat deposits are broken up and get dispersed. This is when your body’s natural waste disposal systems do their job, by getting rid of those fatty acids, once and for all.
But, do keep in mind that it only works in certain areas, and there won’t be overnight results…the best results are visible weeks, or even months, after treatment. The ultrasonic cavitation procedure works best on people who have excess fat in the following locations:
- Inner or outer thighs
- Chest (for men)
The results will vary based on the individual’s health record, body type, and factors unique to the person. These will all affect not only the results but how long they’ll last. Most people need a number of treatments before they get the results they’re hoping for.
Benefits of Ultrasonic Fat Removal
There are lots of reasons to consider this ultrasonic cavitation procedure.
Some of the more important benefits include:
- No risk of damage to muscles, nerves, or tissues
- No visible signs of treatment left behind (bruising, swelling, etc.)
- More precise fat removal
- This procedure is FDA-approved
- It is a fast, risk-free, and effective fat loss treatment
What is the Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation process? Understanding it involves your making certain decisions based on doing due diligence – so there are no misconceptions or false hopes on your part.
Make sure you’re a suitable candidate
Let’s review the factors that make a good candidate:
- This treatment won’t work if you are obese
- You should have identified a specific area or areas of the body where you’re hoping to reduce the appearance of fat
- People with blood clotting problems shouldn’t try this treatment
- Certain health problems, like heart or liver disease, will negate you getting this treatment
- Nursing or pregnant women should also avoid it
- Medical implants in the body, such as cochlear implants and pacemakers,
- Exclude you from getting this treatment
Commit to the process
Losing weight via the fat cavitation process isn’t as simple as just stepping into an office and getting the procedure done. Your side of the bargain will include:
- Eating healthy
- Drinking plenty of water, because the more water you drink, the easier it is for your body to get rid of the fatty acids that your fat cells turn into
- Exercising regularly before and after the treatment
Be prepared for the expense
You can expect to pay for multiple sessions, each costing a few hundred dollars.
Budget for multiple treatments, so your financial situation won’t stop you from reaching your goals. The average cost of ultrasonic fat removal is less than the cost of traditional liposuction. Ultrasonic cavitation can cost $2,700 dollars for three treatments but keep in mind that you can easily spend up to $10,000 on traditional liposuction.
Find a reputed clinic
Make sure to choose the best clinic for you — not the one with the lowest price.
Ask around for testimonials from happy customers. Meet the staff and get your questions answered. Check to see that they have an informative website which will answer all your FAQs.
What does the procedure involve?
The technician will target the areas you want to focus on using ultrasound waves to break up the fat. As we have said earlier, since this is a non-invasive procedure, there’s no recovery time: you can get right back to work and normal activities immediately.
The procedure takes about 45 minutes, and sometimes even less.
Your doctor may recommend moderate exercise, like walking, for a few days just to be on the safe side. This helps to keep the blood flowing but also helps you to avoid any negative side effects. You may see some results within a couple of weeks after the procedure is finished. Remember, it will take a few treatments, spread out over a few months, for you to notice significant changes.
