Newest Technologies For Getting The Body You Want

March 16, 2015

One of the most universally held wishes – other than travelling the world is losing inches off your waist line without going to the gym. Now, that fantasy may have just become a reality. Science has begun developing new and exciting ways to improve body contour and get the body you want.

“I’ve seen a lot of fat removal techniques,” says Dr Garry Cussell, the clinical director at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia. “Some procedures like liposuction are a great way to remove unwanted fats. However, it’s painful and there’s a long recovery time.” For this reason, researchers and scientists have been developing new, non-invasive fat techniques which offer the same benefits as liposuction, with less risk. Some of these include laser-assisted liposuction and cyro-body contouring or ‘cyrolipo.’

Non-surgical body contouring is a rapidly growing field. At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we have a wide variety of non-invasive fat removal technologies available. These include:

Eating the right foods and exercising regularly, but can't seem to shift the weight? Body contouring may be one option for you.

  • Coolsculpting (cyrolipo): Uses controlled freezing to destroy fat cells permanently and painlessly
  • Liposculpture: A cousin of the liposuction, but uses a smaller cannula to remove more fat from more areas, and more evenly in comparison to liposuction.
  • UltraShape: Uses ultrasonic energy that targets deep fat
  • Mesotherapy: Provides temporary cellulite loss and is administered through micro-injections of enzymes which are injected into the fat layer to break down the fatty tissue (Note: Mesotherapy has been replaced by TightSculpting technology)

Doctors are able to use non-invasive technology to achieve a reduction in size in certain body areas, increase skin laxity and diminish the appearance of cellulite. The most important thing to remember about these new treatments is that:

  • The treatments take on average between 40-90 minutes, depending on the areas you want treated
  • There is little to no downtime required, which means there’s no loss of time from work
  • No surgical scars as the majority of these are non-invasive treatments. The exception is liposculpture as it uses a minimally invasive treatment to reduce fat and fat cells

Although these non-invasive body contouring treatments haven’t been around for long, there has been research conducted in this subject area. Recently, the Dermatology Times published a study into non-invasive fat treatments and concluded that treatments which use RF energy do offer improvements to cellulite with ongoing maintenance treatments, while coolsculpting is very effective on small areas of fat. “I’ve seen patients who’ve lost inches off their waistline. The results aren’t as dramatic as liposuction, but there’s less risk involved with these treatments,” says Dr Cussell. It’s difficult to get accurate statistics about non-invasive cosmetic treatments in Australia, the number of minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures has increased by 137% in the United States, while the number of cosmetic surgical procedures has declined by 16% since 2000.

With these figures, there’s a huge market for these types of procedures.“It’s great for people who are within 5 to 10% of their ideal weight and don’t need to use liposuction,” says Dr Cussell. “A lot of women maintain a good diet and exercise, but they can’t seem to shift that muffin top or untoned thighs.” However, Dr Cussell also adds you need to be motivated to keep the weight off. “If you go on a ice cream binge after treatment, the fat may not come back in your stomach, but it’ll come back somewhere else.”
