What is the difference between 3D liposuction and standard liposuction?
Unlike traditional liposuction, the 3D procedure is entirely non-invasive. We use various strategies – including ultrasound, radio frequency and cryolipolysis – to reduce fat without ever going beneath the skin. Furthermore, where standard liposuction requires a lot of vigorous exercise to metabolise the fat cells after the procedure, the 3D treatment gives outstanding results without any exercise at all.*
What does ‘3D’ refer to?
This procedure has three specific aims: fat removal, skin tightening, and cellulite reduction. The 3D liposuction device has several functions, all of which are geared towards achieving these goals.
How does it work?
A full 3D liposuction treatment incorporates several individual procedures, including cavitation
(which uses ultrasonic waves to break down fat cells), cryolipolysis
(which freezes fat cells without affecting other body cells), radio frequency
(which serves to tighten the skin) and dermology
(rolling the skin to reduce cellulite). These treatments are available individually or as part of a larger fat-removal programme.*
What is special about the brand new 3D Lipomed machine?
Launched in January 2014 and is available to Dr Leah clinics, the 3D Lipomed machine offers a highly effective, non-surgical alternative to standard liposuction, adding extra functions to 3D Lipo’s already-impressive capabilities. The 3D Dermology RF (with automated roller) and Duo Cryo features help to provide even more dramatic results.*
Are there any side effects?
Aside from the possibility of some mild discomfort directly after each treatment, this non-invasive approach to liposuction comes with very few risks or side effects, especially compared to traditional liposuction.
Cautions / contraindications
