If you are looking for a non surgical tuck procedure you no doubt don’t wish the expense, the lengthy recovery period and the wounds associated with a full surgical procedure. Before you embark on any procedure, it is wise to consult with your doctor who may be able to advise you best on procedures. Also, any form of tummy tuck is not a substitute for a healthy life style, if you have any procedure and then return to any bad dietary and fitness habits, you risk the fat returning.
Depending on where you would have a surgical tummy tuck the cost can be really prohibitive, costing anything from $8,000 and well over $10,000. In contrast, a non surgical tummy tuck will cost considerably less and the recovery period can be as little as an immediate and full recovery depending on which treatment you have.
However, it has to be noted that it is likely that a full surgical tummy tuck procedure is likely to be the most effective, as this can cope with a great deal more of your problem in a single operation.
One alternative to surgery is lipolysis. This may involve injection and/or ultrasonic massage. Another popular treatment is a laser tummy tuck.
With injection lipolysis a lecithin is introduced into the body via 2 to 4 injections. This causes a chemical reaction that breaks down fat on the arms, buttocks, thighs and stomach.
Ultrasonic lipolysis is a little more complicated and involves an injection of an anesthetic compound that is followed by ultrasonic massage to break up the fats. You will require several regular treatments to see noticable results.
A laser tummy tuck is popular and may involve different types of laser such as serona, titan as well as others. As you may expect, this is a non surgical tummy tuck with a fast recovery that requires no injections or anaesthetic. The lasers heat up the collagen fibres and tighten them up by shortening them.
It can not be stressed enough that when embarking on any surgery or a non surgical tummy tuck that you should always do your research first. Find out what questions you need to ask and if you are unhappy with the answers, walk away and find someone who you can trust.
