When it comes to shedding that unwanted body fat, liposuction may seem like the fast track to quick results
Tagged: Weight Loss
Liposuction alternatives do exist, although for substantial areas of fat reduction we would recommend traditional liposuction. This is because this technique is more effective at removing fat cells, tightening the skin and permanently changing the shape than other liposuction alternatives. Liposuction alternatives include:
In this post, we seek to share some of the best alternatives to liposuction alongside some of the most effective non-surgical fat removal treatments on the market.
The best alternatives to liposuction surgery are the more invasive non surgical alternatives, such as laser liposuction and Smart lipo.
As the leading centre of liposuction in the UK, we know there are very few alternatives that match up to surgical intervention in terms of effectiveness. That said if you’re on the fence about Liposuction it’s important you understand what non surgical treatments can and can’t do.
Laser-Lipo is one such non surgical alternative to liposuction requiring smaller incisions and often healing very quickly. The Laser-Lipo process works by liquifying the fat so that it can be easily removed from the body, this treatment also helps in easily tightening the skin around the target area
CoolSculpting is another alternative to liposuction, it works through cooling the fat cells in the target area until they become a crystal like structure and eventually shatter, allowing the body to then flush out the shattered pieces
There are also Radiofrequency techniques that liquify fat cells and tighten loose skin within a target area.
It’s important to note that despite these alternatives, liposuction is quite often the best solution for patients and provides the most reliable, effective solution for most patients.

SmartLipo is the most effective, non surgical fat removal treatment that also has many benefits, it uses a laser to liquify fat and is explained more below.
A simple weight loss programme can also work wonders for fat removal without the need for any surgery. However, the time cost must be weighed up as for many, surgery may provide the solution they’ve been longing for.
The cheapest form of liposuction is likely to be a non surgical form of liposuction that does not deliver effective, meaningful results.
As such, we would strongly recommend surgical liposuction as the most cost effective form of liposuction, which will make more financial sense when final results are taken into account.
Surgical liposuction starts from £3,950 at the Cadogan Clinic.

Words from our clients:
“I was treated with care and provided with thorough knowledge about the procedure I was undertaking. My surgeon was very methodical (a perfectionist) and I felt I received A class treatment."Courtney O'Sullivan
"Outstanding experience from the first appointment to being discharged. Very professional, friendly and a fantastic outcome."Gemma Stevenson
"There is nothing that I feel could be improved at Cadogan Clinic. I was treated and looked after very well the place was very clean. Perfect. Thank you."Emma Grant
"The treatment was for my daughter and the aesthetic practitioner couldn't have been more helpful and informative all through the course of treatment, it was a great treatment with a brilliant outcome. The whole experience was very professional and any worries we went in with were soon taken away after the team greeted us and treated us."Jessica Yates
"Reception staff very welcoming and efficient. Both nurses who I dealt with were fantastic, and the whole team (anaesthetist, surgeon etc) were friendly but professional, and really put my mind at ease. That I was able to stay later than I perhaps needed after my surgery to fit in with my husbands schedule was greatly appreciated."Emma Davies
Whilst both Liposuction and Smartlipo are highly effective and safe methods of fat removal, both have their advantages and disadvantages. Although SmartLipo has the advantage of smaller incisions, the long term results and reliability of this treatment are less substantial when compared to the more consistent, effective solution traditional liposuction brings to a patient.
All in all, there are many alternatives to traditional liposuction which can be cost effective and require less physical treatment, however the proven reliability of surgery makes it a hard contender to beat. We advise all individuals to thoroughly research these methods and consult trained professionals, such as those at our clinic, before any vast decisions are made.
