Non-Invasive Liposuction Techniques & Weight Loss

Lapex, Zerona, Lipo Laser & Liposuction Weight Loss

Society today is encouraged by a plethora of advertisements offering weight loss treatment options to counteract the epidemic of obesity and overindulgence on fast food. What many people do not understand is that not all weight loss treatments are created equally. There are options available to achieve healthy weight loss goals, but there are also procedures which simply provide a temporary mask to cover the underlying issue. The importance of choosing a treatment plan that is right for your body is the most important aspect of achieving real weight loss. Liposuction is among the most effective techniques available to people with stubborn pockets of fat that simply don’t respond to exercise and diet.


Liposuction is a simple and effective technique for removing excess fat and improving the body contour. By utilizing a cannula and powerful suction, fat cells are removed through tiny incisions in the skin. Dr. Wright performs liposuction with the tumescent technique which involves a unique solution mixture including a local anesthetic and a blood vessel constrictor. This allows him to achieve better results, while also minimizing trauma to the surrounding tissues, leading to an easier recovery for the patient.


According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, liposuction can provide long-lasting results in patients who take care of their bodies following the procedure. Living a healthy lifestyle becomes easier for patients who undergo liposuction as they see the amazing body contour they can have by simply maintaining a regimen of exercise and healthy dieting. Increasing activity will also promote cardiovascular health, a key component to limiting your chances of developing heart disease and diabetes.

Am I a candidate for liposuction?

The decision to have liposuction is sought out by those who seek to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to other efforts like diet and exercise. Patients who make good candidates include:

  • Those who have achieved or are close to weight loss goal

  • Individuals with firm and elastic skin

  • Individuals in good overall health

  • Individuals with realistic expectations of the procedure

Patients with unrealistic goals and expectations will not benefit from this procedure. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure to remove large volumes of fat all over. Dr. Wright assesses the needs for each specific individual during initial consultation.

Benefits of Liposuction

Results are sometimes immediately noticeable, and after the recovery period, results will be obvious. After excess fat cells are removed from the target area, patients notice a new body contour in. While liposuction is not an alternative to diet and exercise, it can be an extremely effective and safe way to tone areas that have been resistant. Other potential benefits include:

  • Reduction of bulging fat

  • Improved physical appearance

  • Improved self-confidence and self-esteem

  • Increased quality of life

Disadvantages of Non-Invasive Liposuction Techniques

Non-invasive liposuction techniques like Zerona, Lapex, and Lipo Laser have no evidence to support long-term weight loss after surgery.  There are no guarantees on inches lost and the need for six sessions or more require the patient to take more time away from their busy schedules. Only small amounts of fat can be reduced from the procedure, and the patient may still require traditional liposuction to achieve the desired results.

These techniques cannot effectively treat all the areas of stubborn pockets of fat, such as thighs. They are also fairly new, without credible research to support the claims they make. Potential side effects, such as the risk of burns, have not been adequately addressed. The risk of burns increase with the heat generated from the laser. Many patients have reported superficial burns from laser liposuction gone wrong. Hitting the target area just right with the laser will cause the skin to contract, but if it is done for too long the body gets burned.

Only the traditional liposuction or tumescent liposuction will deliver sleek and firm results at an affordable rate. Dr. Wright utilizes modern techniques of liposuction with precision and accuracy for his patients. Find out how a liposuction can help you achieve your better self today.
