East Setauket, Suffolk County

For some people, even the strictest diet and exercise routine is no match for their body. After finally being pleased with the number on their scale, they look at themselves in the mirror and still see bulges of fat on their body. An insult to their weight loss efforts, these people may be considering plastic surgery to get rid of that otherwise resistant fat. Plastic surgery, however, is not for everyone, as it is expensive, invasive (often resulting in scarring), and requires extensive downtime post-surgery.
If you are in this predicament, you should know that there are many non-invasive fat removal methods to remove stubborn, diet and exercise-resistant fat. These treatments are typically performed in your dermatologist’s office and you will be able to return to work immediately after your treatment. In addition, non-invasive fat removal costs significantly less than plastic surgery, making it a viable option for many.
Liposonix is an innovative non-invasive fat removal method. It uses ultrasound energy to destroy excess fat cells. Customizable to your specific treatment areas, Liposonix can permanently eliminate excess fat without incisions or scarring. For many patients, just one hour-long Liposonix treatment can reduce their waistline by as much as an inch, which is roughly one dress or pant size.
Advanced Dermatology, PC, with offices in Suffolk County, Long Island, and elsewhere in the New York/New Jersey region, is proud to offer Liposonix. Our board-certified dermatologists have completed extensive training by the manufacturers and have performed many cases. Liposonix patients have been highly satisfied with the results they have obtained from this non-invasive treatment.
To be a candidate for Liposonix, you should be at or close to your ideal weight, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or less. You will need to be in overall good health and able to pinch an inch of fat in your area(s) of concerns. As with all treatments, you need to have realistic expectation. You will need to visit one of our East Setauket dermatologists to determine whether Liposonix is right for you.
During your Liposonix consultation, your dermatologist will examine you and review their medical history. He or she will be checking that you meet the aforementioned requirements. If you are a suitable candidate for Liposonix, your treatment will be scheduled and your dermatologist will discuss the approach to be used for your specific area(s) of concern.
The non-invasive nature of Liposonix allows your treatment to be performed in our East Setauket office. Once your treatment area(s) have been marked with a surgical pen, the device will be passed over those areas. Let your dermatologist know if you are experiencing any discomfort during your Liposonix treatment session, as they may be able to adjust its intensity. When treatment is done, you will be able to return to work immediately.
After Liposonix, you may experience temporary swelling, bruising or redness. Results will become noticeable over the next 3 months as your body gets rid of the fat destroyed during treatment. One Liposonix treatment is typically enough to provide satisfactory results. Patients, however, should continue keeping healthy diet and exercise routines to maintain the results of their treatment.
