With so many different types of fat removal treatments out there, it can be challenging trying to decide which of them is right for you. The best way to make the decision is to consider your time, your budget, and your desired results. Here we look at the good and bad points of liposuction, tummy tucks, and SculpSure, the latest form of fat removal being offered by cosmetic surgeons such as Dr. Sonny O and his staff.

Time is of the Essence

If you feel as though time is not on your side and you can’t afford to be down for an extended recovery period, you need to consider the fact that liposuction and tummy tucks have extensive recovery timeframes. While they do offer more immediate results because they are invasive surgical procedures, it can take days, weeks, and in certain instances months to fully recover.

On the other hand, SculpSure is a completely non-invasive procedure with minimal side-effects and recovery times. You can go right back to your daily routine almost immediately following the treatment. However, optimum results take a little as little as 6 weeks but can take up to 12 weeks for optimum results.

Consider Your Budget

For most people looking into fat removal treatments, budget is usually a major concern as most treatments such as liposuction and tummy tucks can be quite expensive. However, since SculpSure is a non-invasive fat removal treatment using a simple piece of equipment, overall costs are significantly lower.

Finally, There Is Your Anatomy to Consider

Your current anatomy may be the most important consideration when choosing between the different forms of fat removal treatments. Bear in mind that none of these treatments are intended to be used for weight loss, they are only intended to help contour your body and to help you achieve the shape you desire. Each is used to contour small areas and in certain instances remove areas of leftover or hanging skin. If you already have large areas of loose skin following weight loss, you are likely to find neither SculpSure or liposuction to be very effective, the only option for this is a tummy tuck that removes the excess skin.
