Are you worried that your stubborn pockets of excess fat are affecting your health negatively? Do you wish you could feel more confident in your own skin? Are you on the fence about invasive body contouring procedures? Today, our health and wellness experts at The Medispa at the Gynecology Center in Ormond Beach, FL are taking a closer look at your options for fat removal without surgery.
Fat Removal Without Surgery: What Are Your Options?
Medical Weight Loss Program
If your goal is to achieve fat removal without surgery, a medical weight loss program may be your best bet. If you go this route, the fat cells themselves won’t be removed, but you will operate at a consistent caloric deficit, resulting in the release of stored excess fat. In other words, the storage cells will be there, but the energy that was once stored in those cells will be gone. This will result in a serious improvement in your physique.
There is no way to tell exactly what your experience will look like if you enroll in a medical weight loss program. What we can say is that you will have support every step of the way. Some people who opt into a medical weight loss program are more interested in prescription medications to help them suppress their appetite. Others benefit more from drugs and supplements to boost their metabolism. Either way, we’ll provide diet and exercise advice.
Do I Qualify for a Medical Weight Loss Program?
There is a strong chance that you will qualify for a medical weight loss program if you are looking to burn a significant amount of fat in a short period of time. Remember, each individual has a different experience with a medical weight loss program, but we will provide you with the tools to lose a massive amount of weight very quickly. Often, our clients will get help to control their appetite, so once they lose the weight, it is easier to keep off.
We will also offer accountability, exercise advice, and nutrition advice. If you find yourself eating too much while you’re on your weight loss journey because you have nobody to hold you accountable, you may benefit from a medical weight loss program greatly. Throughout the program, there will be multiple weigh-ins, and we’ll evaluate your progress in other ways, too. For example, we’ll use a tape measure to see where you’re losing inches of fat from.
truSculpt iD is a revolutionary fat removal treatment. It destroys approximately 24% of the subcutaneous fat in an area of concern with each treatment session. Treatment sessions can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the areas being targeted and the number of areas being targeted. However, each treatment session has something in common. There is no downtime required afterward.
How Should I Prepare for My Treatment Session?
To prepare for your treatment session, it is very important that you consume no fewer than two cups of hydrating fluids before your scheduled appointment. Note, these 16 ounces should be consumed in the 120 minutes leading up to your session. Also, it is very important that you consume a nutritious snack or small meal packed with protein and produce within two hours of your scheduled appointment.
You should also prepare for your treatment session by making sure that you’re not wearing jewelry when you come in for your appointment. If you are wearing jewelry, regardless of whether it is a belly button ring or necklace, it will be removed before your session begins. You can also ensure your treatment goes as quickly as possible by coming in with no cosmetics applied to the areas of concern.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
You can expect to be considered a good candidate for truSculpt iD if you have a BMI that does not exceed 29.9, you’re a fairly healthy adult, and you wish you could spot-reduce fat. Due to the non-invasive nature of this treatment, almost everyone is healthy enough to qualify. The more pertinent question is whether this treatment will be effective for you.
To verify that truSculpt iD will be effective for you, we need to evaluate the amount of fat you have in your areas of concern. If there is too little fat in your areas of concern, you may not be satisfied with the results of your treatment. Fat loss is a bit like drying your hair after a bath. At first, just like it’s easy to wring your hair out when it’s soaking wet, it’s easy to burn fat. Eventually, your hair remains damp, just like nothing will remove all fat cells in an area.
Accent Prime is an incredibly popular fat removal without surgery technique that melts fat away thanks to a highly advanced Alma laser. What clients love about this non-surgical fat removal technique is that it doesn’t just eliminate unwanted fat safely and effectively. It also encourages your skin to produce extra collagen, mitigating the risk that you will have loose, sagging skin once your body has eliminated the destroyed fat cells.
Where Can This Treatment Remove Unwanted Fat From?
This non-invasive treatment can remove unwanted fat from just about anywhere. Women commonly seek this treatment to remove unwanted fat from the upper arms and upper back. However, it can also be used to remove unwanted fat from such areas as the:
- Upper abdomen
- Lower abdomen
- Submental region
How Soon Will I Be Able To See My Fat Removal Results?
You can generally expect to see your fat removal results in a month or two. If you’re near your desired weight, you may only need a couple of treatment sessions to remove enough fat for satisfactory results. If you still have quite a bit of weight to lose, four to six treatment sessions may be required for satisfactory results. Usually, sessions are spaced two to four weeks apart, and results develop fully three to five weeks after each treatment.
In other words, if you need four treatments spaced two weeks apart and it takes you a month to see your final results after your last treatment, it will be around three months before you can see your final results. To see your fat removal results as quickly as possible, you need to support your lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system is responsible for finding and eliminating the fat cells destroyed during each treatment session.
How Can I Support My Lymphatic System?
Staying hydrated is one of the most effective things you can do to support your lymphatic system. If you are dehydrated, take a moment to consider your diet. You may be drinking a lot of water throughout the day. Unfortunately, if you take caffeine pills, fat burning supplements that are high in caffeine, or energy shots, you may need to cut down on your caffeine consumption because it is a diuretic in large quantities.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
You may be considered a good Accent Prime candidate if your body mass index is no more than 30 kilos per square meter of height. In other words, you may qualify if your BMI indicates that you are a healthy weight or overweight. If your BMI indicates that you suffer from obesity, you will be considered a poor candidate for this treatment. This is because it is important that you do not have too much excess fat in an area of concern.
Many people liken fat loss to unraveling a roll of paper towels. Although you will lose fat faster when you have more fat to lose, it will be harder for you to see your results. This phenomenon is often referred to as the paper towel effect because you can’t see the effect of removing a single paper towel from a full roll. However, you can easily tell when a paper towel is removed from a roll that is almost empty.
