What are the alternatives to liposuction?

Liposuction surgery is not the solution for every patient, and if you have any of the following concerns you may want to look at alternative options:

1. You have loose, sagging skin. Liposuction is designed specifically to target fatty tissue, it will not significantly improve the appearance of loose skin. Other body contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck or body lift, may be better options for you.
2. You want to lose a significant amount of weight. Liposuction can improve your shape, which can help you look thinner and more fit, but it’s not a weight loss method. While some overweight patients can benefit from the reshaping effects, the most satisfied patients tend to be happy with their weight prior to surgery.

Regarding non surgical alternatives to removing stubborn pockets of fat, there is very little that provides the same, permanent effect quickly. Please see our non surgical fat reduction page for more information on this.
