Where Can Liposonix Be Used?

Can it be used on upper body? And are there places where it can't be used, like near major organs? Thank you

Yes, most areas of the body can be treated with Liposonix. The torso is the most common area where Liposonix is used.

LipoSonix can be used all over the body

+1

The following areas have been successfully treated with LipoSonix:

Stomach
Thighs
Love Handles
Back
Bra line fat
Hips
Buttocks
Any other problem areas resistant to diet and exercise.

 

The only contraindication to an area is if it has less than 1cm of fatty tissue below the ideal treatment depth.

 

Hope this helps!

Liposonix is FDA approved for use on the abdomen and "love handles".

Also, we are using the technology on the outer thighs, hips, and the "muffin top" above the buttocks. We are not treating the inner thighs or the arms.

Liposonix in the right hands can be safely applied in many places

Liposonix is really a fantastic new option for nonsurgical body contouring.  It is mostly utilized for the abdomen or tummy and throughout the hips or "love handle" area; however, it can also be used in the lower back or "bra strap" roll area in women, and even in the inner and outer thighs.  It is not typically a good option for the arms; however, there are some patients where this would also be a possibility.  The most important thing is to make sure that you're evaluated by a physician.  The technology is amazing and there is very little discomfort for something that takes a little over an hour and only has to be done one time; however, to ensure good, effective and safe results, it's optimal to get evaluated by a plastic surgeon that specializes in body contouring.

Liposonix can be used whereever there is an Inch to Pinch

+1

As long as there is at least an Inch to Pinch, Liposonix can be utilized to reduce fat pads and achieve nice body contouring except the neck area. However, for patients for whom BMI is excess of 30, the clinical results may not be impressive.

Liposonix is for reduction of localized fat

+1

One advantage of Liposonix is that the ultrasound can be precisely focused, so that a specific layer between about a half inch and an inch deep under the skin is targeted. For this reason it is important that the fat layer is at least an inch thick ("pinch an inch). In the clinical trials the results were measured in waist circumference reduction but other areas could be treated "off label". There is less information available for areas such as arms and thighs.
