Each individual has a unique body contour and, consequently each person thus may have particular body fat problems that require different remedies. While traditional liposuction surgery remains the gold standard in the removal of unwanted body fat, there are certainly other options today that may prove to be a more suitable solution to your specific concerns.
Body Contouring Plastic Surgeon Dr. York Yates prefers power assisted liposuction – a modified version of the traditional tumescent lipoplasty – as his ideal lipo technique in most cases. However, Dr. Yates is experienced and exposed enough with various types of body contouring situations to know that other techniques may be more efficient or more advantageous in the treatment of body fat of some people – including the latest, technology-based alternatives.
With the assistance of his professional staff, the Salt Lake City Plastic Surgeon has scrutinized each of the new alternatives to traditional lipo work.
These lipoplasty alternatives include:
- Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo);
- Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL);
- Water Assisted Liposuction (Body-Jet);
- Mesotherapy (Lipodissolve);
- CoolSculpting; and
- Liposonix (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound).
Using three main criteria of a) effectiveness, b) risks, and c) cost, the alternatives are gauged on how well they maximize fat removal effect and minimize surgical risks. Based on such methodology, it is the submitted verdict of Dr. Yates and team that CoolSculpting procedure has proven to be the safest and most effective option of all mentioned.
At his Salt Lake City office, Dr. Yates offers CoolSculpting as a non-invasive and painless alternative to eliminating stubborn body fat in such areas as the back, love handles, abdominal fat, nad as well as arms and legs. The Salt Lake City CoolSculpting indeed performs the same procedural function as traditional lipoplasty. Nonetheless, it utilizes a controlled cooling technology that targets and destroys layers of fat cells in your body.
Upon consultation, Dr. Yates will evaluate your suitability to CoolSculpting procedure. Generally, however, you are a good candidate if you are healthy and fit and seeking to eliminate fat areas in your body that have not responded favorably to dieting and exercise. Like liposuction, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure or a treatment against obesity. Moreover, he usually prefers the traditional liposuction if your goal is to achieve a more dramatic fat removal outcome. Dr. Yates is board certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
