Liposuction in Los Angeles is no longer the only option for fat reduction. A number of plastic surgeons offer liposuction alternatives that can provide nonsurgical ways to diminish small pockets of fat around the body. Here are 3 options for people interested in liposuction alternatives:

  • CoolSculpting® from ZELTIQ™ removes stubborn fat by freezing cells through a cooling process. No damage is done to surrounding tissue or skin, and the body naturally eliminates fat cells in targeted areas over the months that follow each treatment.
  • ZERONA® is a low-level laser energy used to liquefy fatty material in cells, forcing it into intercellular space. Specifically, this treatment targets fat near the surface of the skin, also known as subcutaneous fat, to provide a visible improvement in a person’s body contour.
  • EXILIS uses radiofrequency energy to heat deeper layers of the skin to target mild to moderate fat deposits. This treatment is a great option for people who want to simultaneously slim their bodies and firm their skin.
