Fat Removal Devices

Although liposuction is the gold standard for removal of excess pockets of fat, many new innovations are evolving to treat small amounts of excess fat noninvasively. These treatments  often do not achieve the same results as liposuction but can be helpful in people with very small amounts of superficial  fat.  Zeltiq utilizes very cold temperatures while Zerona uses low level  laser energy to break up the fat. These treatments are safe for all skin types including ethnic skin but often  do not compare in efficacy to liposuction and also require multiple sessions over several weeks.
