What is Liquid Liposuction?
Liquid liposuction is an injectable treatment that targets and eliminates small areas of stubborn fat. The injectable liquid liposuction technique is often preferred to traditional liposuction, because it provides effective fat reduction without the need for surgery. Unlike surgical liposuction techniques, liquid liposuction is conveniently performed in-office without any incisions. It also offers far less downtime than traditional liposuction. It is ideal for areas about the size of a palm, offering fat reduction in areas such as:
- Double chin
- Bra strap
- Back hump/back fat
- Around the knees
- Small areas of the abdomen
- And more
How Does Liquid Liposuction Work?
Liquid liposuction works by injecting a deoxycholic acid formula into the areas where fat reduction is desired. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring ingredient found in our body, which assists in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the treatment area, the formula destroys fat cells and helps the body eliminate them. In the weeks and months following treatment, you’ll notice a reduction in fat in the treatment area, resulting in slimmer, contoured appearance.
What is the Liquid Liposuction Treatment Like?
Before administering the liquid liposuction treatment, we’ll apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to numb the skin and minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Then, we’ll make a few injections into the treatment area. The number of injections needed will depend on the amount of fat in the treatment area, and the desired results you’d like to achieve. However, the injection process typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete, making liquid liposuction a quick and convenient treatment.
Is There Any Downtime After Liquid Liposuction?
There is no downtime required after liquid liposuction, although you will need to avoid a few activities for the first 24-48 hours. This includes alcohol, exercise, and warm environments (hot showers, saunas, etc.), all of which can worsen swelling. Otherwise, you’ll be able to resume your normal activities immediately after your appointment. You may experience a few temporary side effects, which include bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the treatment area.
When Will I Notice Results from Liquid Liposuction?
The results from liquid liposuction will become visible in the weeks following your treatment. As the deoxycholic acid begins breaking down fat in the treatment area, you’ll see a reduction in fat. Most patients begin noticing results in 1-2 months, although these results will continue to improve for up to 3 months after your treatment. Some patients may require multiple treatment sessions for best results.
Fortunately, the results you achieve from liquid liposuction can be permanent. The deoxycholic acid permanently destroys fat cells in the treatment area, which means they cannot come back. However, poor nutrition and exercise habits can lead to weight gain, which can impact the results of your liquid liposuction treatment. For long-lasting results without the need for additional treatments, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
