LipoSonix is a device that is used to reduce waist size and permanently get rid of fat cells. The device uses focused ultrasound waves to permanently disrupt fat cells selectively in problem areas. LipoSonix eliminates fat cells without surgery and has minimal downtime or side effects. For decades, people have tried hard to selectively remove fat from problem areas using injections, belts, exercise and several other cosmetic surgery techniques. Until now, liposuction was the only way to actually remove fat from a selective area, but now there’s LipoSonix.

If you’re close to your ideal shape, but need a little help getting there, Liposonix may be for you. Liposonix treatments use high-intensity focused ultrasound to non-invasively get rid of targeted fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) without surgery. The average waistline reduction after just a single one-hour treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) – which typically means one dress or pant size.
Patient selection is important: our clinical experience has been that Liposonix works best for active, healthy individuals who have at least 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) of fat to lose in their abdomen or flanks. We find that patients who are close to their ideal weight have the best results. Liposonix can be performed on people of all skin colors.
The Liposonix treatment has 10 years of research and testing behind its development. It has a well-defined safety profile during and after treatment with very good patient satisfaction. Treatments have been available in Europe, Japan and Canada for several years. It became available in the US in December 2011. Dr. Chapas was one of the first physicians in the US to use this technology and continues to be a leader in its development and implementation
The treatment permanently disrupts fat cells in the treatment area. One session is recommended in the area and it takes around one hour. Present studies show an average reduction of 4.6 cms or 1.8 inches in waist size, after 3 months. Basically, this is one pant size. These are results from the first generation LipoSonix machine. Currently, clinical studies are underway for the second generation machine. Early reports are showing a similar or better overall reduction with the second generation machine.
The side effects of LipoSonix treatment are mostly minimal. Patients undergoing treatment with the second generation machine have experienced little or no discomfort. Some patients have experienced minor swelling, redness, and bruising after treatment. The redness usually resolves within a few hours and the swelling usually subsides within a few days.
