TORONTO, ON, July 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Considering that liposuction
remains the most performed cosmetic surgery procedure in North America, it's safe to say that most people have unwanted fat in some areas of their body that they wouldn't mind getting rid of. However, many are reluctant to undergo liposuction surgery because of its invasive nature and the lengthy recovery time that surgical liposuction requires. A new non-invasive fat reduction technology called BodyFX
helps patients achieve permanent fat removal without surgery. BodyFX's advantage is that it can remove 700 cc of stubborn fat without pain or downtime.
Recently featured on Canadian national TV, Dr. Stephen Mulholland, a Toronto plastic surgeon
and founder of the SpaMedica Cosmetic Surgery Centre and MedSpa, discussed and demonstrated a newly FDA cleared non-surgical liposuction
device called BodyFX
He also visited Paris, France to attend the annual IMCAS meeting to discuss his non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program with international physicians. During his lectures, he talked about the BodyFX's ability to painlessly remove fat and noted that there was an increase of 15-20% more collagen during the BodyFX treatment, causing skin tightening
and eliminating the skin laxity problem that often follows liposuction
"With some of our new non-invasive fat reduction technology, we can now offer results similar to liposuction procedures. We can permanently remove fat safely and effectively without going the knife. The new device BodyFX is unique in that it can kill fat cells with high voltage pulses and permanently damage the fat cell membrane. This process is called irreversible electroporation," says Dr. Mulholland.
Dr. Mulholland elaborates further on the advantages of BodyFX. "The BodyFx is unique in that it also uses basic RF to tighten skin while killing fat. This provides the skin contraction and permanent fat reduction and avoids post fat removal skin laxity," he says.
Treatments take 20 minutes per zone. They are performed once a week for six weeks and are virtually painless. Patients can go right back to normal activities after a BodyFX treatment.
"By using BodyFX alone, or combining BodyFX radiofrequency energy with high intensity focused ultrasound devices like UltraShape or Liposonix, or hypothermic devices like CoolSculpting (Zeltiq), plastic surgeons and cosmetic physicians can now offer these non-surgical liposuction treatments to remove the same amount of fat that a small volume liposuction procedure would," says Dr. Mulholland.
With the BodyFX, combined with other non-surgical fat reduction
technologies, growing in popularity, Dr. Mulholland predicts they may quickly become the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures for both men and women.
