3 Ways to Lose Fat

Many people who come to me seeking liposuction in Baltimore are surprised to learn that they have several options when it comes to getting rid of unwanted fat. Here are three ways you can get a slimmer body.

Liposuction

Most patients are well aware of liposuction, also known as lipo, liposculpture, lipoplasty and suction lipectomy. They usually don’t know that multiple methods of liposuction exist. Methods include tumescent liposuction, super-wet liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) and laser-assisted liposuction, among others. I take into consideration the patient’s goals, and the amount, type, and location of the fat in order to determine the best technique to use. Ideal liposuction candidates exercise regularly and eat healthy but have areas of fat that are difficult to reduce through diet and exercise.

Smartlipo MPX™

A proprietary form of laser-assisted liposculpting, Smartlipo MPX boasts an enhanced experience. The procedure is performed under local, rather than general, anesthesia. Its laser system offers highly efficient lipolysis (the breakdown of fat) and initiates coagulation, improving the tightening of tissue. And because trauma and bleeding are minimized, patients can recover faster and enjoy their results sooner!

CoolSculpting®

Believe it or not, you can freeze the fat away. I know it sounds too good to be true, but after performing myriad CoolSculpting body contouring procedures and seeing the results, I can say with certainty that CoolSculpting works! The process is called cryolipolysis. Fat is frozen and then metabolized and shed by the body naturally. Nerves and other tissues are not harmed, and CoolSculpting is a completely nonsurgical treatment. Not even a single shot is required.
