HUNTSVILLE - OCTOBER 24, 2012 - Dr. Patrick Wilson, owner of Wilson Plastic Surgery, has invested in the Liposonix technology for use in his practice. This will afford all of his patients the opportunity to use a much safer and less invasive alternative to surgeries like liposuction. Having modern technologies such as Liposonix in Huntsville promotes commerce and makes the area more attractive to potential new residents.

Liposonix is an advanced and noninvasive way of destroying fat cells within the body. The procedure looks incredibly similar to the common ultrasound used to noninvasively look within the body. A small device is held against the body in the area where the fat is intended to be destroyed for several minutes. With just this simple process, the fat cells are destroyed and will trigger reaction from your body's internal systems. This will slowly and naturally remove the now destroyed cells from your body over the course of two to three months.

Unlike liposuction, Liposonix will not be able to make dramatic changes to your body shape rapidly. The procedure is best used when you have a small amount of fat in a target area and are close to your ideal weight but need just a small amount of help. The special frequency of sound used to penetrate and destroy fat cells located half an inch below the surface of the skin. The procedure is FDA approved for use in the abdomen and love handle areas currently, but is being used off label to treat the thighs, buttocks, and back. In studies, patients have lost an average of one inch from their waistline after having a single treatment to their abdomen and flanks.

Liposonix is also not a weight loss procedure and not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. When destroyed, the cellular debris will be transported to the liver and excreted from the body. Side effects of Liposonix are generally mild due to the light and noninvasive nature of it. Some redness, swelling, tenderness or bruising will occur since there is death of cells involved in the procedure, but there is little to no discomfort based on your individual pain tolerance level. No anesthesia is required for the procedure, resulting in less adverse effects overall and a much less expensive procedure. Patients are able to return back to work and exercise immediately.
