Liposonix fat reduction & body sculpting treatments as offered by the NYC Board Certified Doctor is a nonsurgical treatment performed to achieve outstanding fat reduction results without plastic surgery. How is fat reduction and body sculpting possible without surgery? The medical device, Liposonix, uses a modern technology called "High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound" (HIFU) which causes the death of fat cells safely and effectively. When the NYC Doctor's team focuses the Liposonix's ultrasound energy of Liposonix at 1-2 cm below the surface of your skin it avoids any burns or trauma to the skin (including the surface) but the fat cells are effected by the HIFU which results in over an inch of fat loss to the patient: an average 4-5 cm (1.5-2 inches) reduction in waist size for a one hour nonsurgical treatment.

After the Liposonix fat reduction & body sculpting treatment the effected fat cells attract the body’s natural inflammatory and healing responses. Your body's cells called "macrophages" engulf the fat and cellular debris following the treatment. The macrophages then transport the fat through the body's lymphatic and venous system and eventually deposit the disrupted cells to your body's liver.  Your body's liver treats the fat from the macrophages just like fat you have normally eaten. The liver takes the fat and metabolizes it normally - the Liposonix treatment does not cause any harm to the body. The fat is then removed from your body through the normal elimination process.

The disrupted fat cells attract the body’s inflammatory and healing responses. Special cells called macrophages engulf the fat and cellular debris. The macrophages then transport the fat through the lymphatic and venous system eventually to the liver. This process takes 2-4 weeks, so there are no changes in fat, triglyceride or any other body chemistries. The liver treats the fat from the macrophages just like fat you have eaten. The liver takes the fat and metabolizes it normally. Studies have not shown an increase in other body measurements after the use of LipoSonix. This means there is no measurable redistribution of the fat. We know it can’t go back to the treatment area because those cells no longer exist.

In summary, without any invasive surgery, the ultrasound technology of Liposonix destroys the fat under the skin. Firmer skin, tighter skin, and fat reduction at a targeted area (body sculpting) is the outcome. Many of the NYC Liposonix patients seek out this treatment for body sculpting - targeted fat reduction when they just can't seem to loose that last inch of fat.
