Liposonix is a non-invasive fat removal ultrasonic device, the first in Australia. It is a walk-in, walk-out, no down time outpatient treatment. It is TGA registered for waist line reduction treatment. Each treatment may reduce the dress size by 1. Liposonix can treat other parts of body fat where exercise and diet have failed to reduce hereditary the stubborn fat bulge.
There is some pain or discomfort during treatment; for those who are pain sensitive, oral analgesic or pain relief injection can be given. For those who want to have no pain experience, IV twilight sedation can be given. Most patients can return to work after; some discomfort, swelling and bruising can occur but will settle shortly after.
There is no immediate visible result; the fat that is destroyed will be absorbed by natural processes in the body. The result can be affected by weight increase, therefore exercise and healthy diet need to continue. Liposonix is not for weight loss or overtly obese patients. It is ideal only for reshaping. There must be at least 2.5cm of subcutaneous fat present to be acceptable for treatment.
It is a non-invasive, outpatient procedure. Some oral analgesic or injection can be given. It is a convenient lunch-time procedure. The treatment takes about an hour or more. Patients can return to work or social activity almost immediately after treatment; some patients have reported discomfort with running and other heavy duty exercise.
There is no serious recovery down time. Some patients can experience mild discomfort, swelling and bruising or tingling sensation. There are no external wounds to contend with and there is no need to wear compression garment.
