Fight the Bulge with Liposonix®
Few experiences are quite as frustrating for body-conscious individuals as the dreaded ‘weight loss plateau’—when you are very close to your ideal weight and your diet and exercise program seems to stop producing results. The plateau typically occurs toward the end of your weight loss journey, after you have made significant progress but still have one or two more inches (particularly around your waistline) you want to reduce to come closer to your ideal body shape. Unfortunately, this particular type of fat is often resistant to healthy lifestyle changes and can remain a problem area even after the completion of an otherwise successful weight loss program.
If this exasperating situation sounds all too familiar, do not despair! The trained aesthetic medicine specialists at the Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody) have equipped their two office locations (Richmond, VA and Vienna, VA) with the Liposonix® Custom Contouring™ System, designed to target and reduce unwanted fat around your abdomen to help slim your waistline and improve the appearance of undesirable “love handles” and “muffin tops.”
Board certified (ABPS) plastic surgeons Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin created MBody to serve as the non-surgical division of the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, and to provide their busy clientele with non-invasive, yet effective body-shaping treatment options. Dissatisfied with the shortcomings of alternative body contouring procedures, the Doctors chose to offer Liposonix® Custom Contouring™ because of the system’s remarkable versatility, which enables the practitioner to precisely control how and where the ultrasound energy is delivered, and to produce a powerful, personalized fat-reduction treatment in a single 60-minute session.
KEY LIPOSONIX® BENEFITS
- Although a healthy lifestyle is necessary to achieve and maintain long-term weight loss and a lean, trim body, your results may plateau before your desired aesthetic outcome is fully realized
- Liposonix® is designed to target that last stubborn inch, and can be an effective complement to a healthy diet/exercise regimen that has leveled off or stalled
- Liposonix® channels high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to penetrate through the skin layers and into the targeted fatty tissue, reducing unwanted fat after a single one-hour treatment without damaging the adjacent skin/tissues
- Liposonix® produces uniform, consistent results after just a single one-hour treatment (individual results may vary: click here for more details from Solta Medical)
During (and directly after) your Liposonix® treatment, you may feel some temporary discomfort, cold, prickling, tingling, bruising, redness, and swelling, which are generally described as mild and will abate quickly. You may resume your normal activities immediately after your treatment, and your waistline-slimming results will be noticeable within 8-12 weeks (the time needed for the body to naturally process the treated fat).
*DISCLAIMER: Individual results may vary. Results are not guaranteed. Liposonix® is not intended for weight loss. Patients must be at or near their ideal weight and have realistic expectations of the intended outcome. No body contouring procedure offers permanent results. While Liposonix® removes some fat cells from the body, existing fat cells can continue to grow and expand to cause additional weight gain.
