Many women have cellulite, the unsightly bulges that don’t go away no matter how much you exercise. Ultrasonic-cavitation treatment is one option that will banish the bulges of cellulite almost instantly, and now it’s affordable for most budgets.
The process basically uses ultrasound waves to liquefy the fat in problem areas such as the sides, back, and upper abdomen. The liquid fat is then removed via liposuction, and the area is immediately smaller because the fat is gone.
While the most common use of ultrasonic-cavitation is cosmetic, it is also used to remove benign fatty tumors and enlarged breasts in men, among other things. While the fat loss is pretty much instant, the skin around the treated area will remain the same. That will take a while to tighten, up to six months or so for some people. Although the procedure removes the fat it can return in a different area if your diet doesn’t improve, as weight gain depends on your metabolism, eating habits, and exercise regime.
Liposuction removes inches, not pounds. Because it is a medical procedure, the area treated will need to be wrapped with bandages, support hose, or a girdle for up to a month to reduce swelling and discomfort. The procedure is done under anesthesia, and you’ll be able to move around normally once the effects of the sedation wear off.
There are some known side effects, so you need to be aware of the risks before you decide this treatment is for you. You’ll probably have bruising, swelling, and soreness in the area treated, and as mentioned before the skin will sag for a while. There can also be irritation and possible scarring around the incision. Less common side effects are nerve damage and permanent discoloration of the skin.
As with any surgical procedure, there are rare complications that can be serious. It’s important that you research the side effects completely before deciding that ultrasonic-cavitation treatment is the answer to your cellulite problems.
If you think you’re a candidate for this procedure, make sure you check the credentials of the doctor performing it first. Check online for affordable clinics in your area, and before you know it you’ll be a few inches slimmer!
