Lipoplasty – Liposuction : Non-surgical alternatives (Fat Reduction)

Cryolipolysis
Cryolipolysis refers to the external application of controlled cooling to reduce limited fat bulges.

Diet and exercise
Healthy eating habits combined with regular exercise also help people lose weight. This natural process, however, takes more time and determination than liposuction. Weight loss via exercise and healthy eating carries little risk compared to liposuction.

Liposuction does not significantly improve the metabolic abnormalities associated with obesity and does not achieve the general health benefits (such as increased cardiovascular health) associated with natural weight loss.

One of the reasons is that liposuction typically targets pockets of subcutaneous fat, which are considered relatively harmless metabolically, and abnormalities such as insulin resistance are more strongly associated with deposits of visceral fat(deposits of fat between organs inside the abdominal cavity).

Removal of visceral adipose tissue via liposuction is not practiced because of significant risks of nerve and organ damage.
