What is it?

Liposonix® is a non-surgical technology that uses ultrasound to target fatty areas of the body especially around the waistline. The device probe is placed directly over the areas of interest but causes no harm to the overlying skin.

Who is a candidate?

A healthy patient who is displeased with or wishes to get rid of fat in areas including:

  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Bra-line fat
  • Hips
  • Buttocks

Technique

The head of the Liposonic device is placed on the area to be treated by Dr. Galanis. High-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the targeted fat. The overlying skin is not harmed but the fat beneath the skin is permanently destroyed.
