Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Q & A

What is nonsurgical fat reduction?

Nonsurgical fat reduction, as the name implies, is a noninvasive treatment that reduces stubborn body fat without surgery or downtime. The Total Cosmetix team uses advanced truSculpt technology, which is FDA-approved radiofrequency treatment for cellulite reduction and body contouring in your abdomen, legs, buttocks, thighs, and other problem areas.

How does nonsurgical fat reduction work?

Nonsurgical fat reduction at Total Cosmetix uses gentle radiofrequency energy to heat body fat and destroy fat cells. Once fat cells are damaged, your body can eliminate them naturally over time. The procedure isn’t painful, and there’s no downtime associated with it, unlike surgical fat reduction procedures. 

Is nonsurgical fat reduction right for me?

To determine if nonsurgical fat reduction is right for you, Dr. Towhidian and his team review your medical history and examine problem areas with undesirable fat pockets. They discuss your desired outcome and let you know what to expect during and after the procedure. 

While nonsurgical fat reduction can permanently eliminate fat cells, it’s not a substitute for healthy eating and regular exercise. You should be at or near your ideal weight prior to undergoing a truSculpt procedure.

What happens during treatment?

During nonsurgical fat reduction at Total Cosmetix, you lie down on a comfortable exam table. Dr. Towhidian uses a special hand-held device to apply radiofrequency energy to problem areas. Unlike surgical fat-reduction procedures, no anesthesia is needed during truSculpt treatments. 

You may feel a slight warming sensation but the procedure isn’t painful. It might last less than 60 minutes. Because there’s no downtime associated with nonsurgical fat reduction, you can resume a normal everyday routine right away. 

When will I notice my fat reduction results?

Dr. Towhidian might recommend a series of nonsurgical fat reduction sessions to help you achieve the best possible outcome. You won’t notice fat reduction right away, as optimal results often appear two to three months after treatment as your body slowly eliminates destroyed fat cells.

Don’t live with stubborn body fat that doesn’t go away with diet and exercise. Schedule an appointment with Total Cosmetix over the phone or online to find out if nonsurgical fat reduction is right for you.
