Which is Best for You? Liposuction or a Non-Surgical Fat Reducer

Liposuction or non-surgical body shaping both have their benefits, but which is right for you?

Liposuction can be an attractive body contouring option for individuals who have maintained a healthy weight through diet and exercise but still have some resistant pockets of fat. It is less invasive than a tummy tuck and can address a variety of body areas. However, it isn’t for everyone. Now, recent advances in cosmetic technology have revealed new ways to remove small areas of fat without any surgery at all. Maybe it’s time to find out if you might be a candidate for a non-surgical liposuction alternative in Georgia Dermatology Center in Cumming, Georgia.

Liposuction or Exilis – No one will know!

Benefits of minimally invasive Liposuction:
It‘s no surprise to find that liposuction still remains the #1 cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States. After all it works well to get ready of unwanted pockets of fat and it has a huge patient satisfaction rate. The procedure is also proven to be safe and because of new technology in ho the way the procedure is done, it has very little down time. During the liposuction procedure, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Alexander Gross actually removes fat cells. Those fat cells are gone forever, so you have a much greater opportunity of keeping your new slimmer figure.

While liposuction is generally considered to be an elective aesthetic procedure, Dr. Alexander Gross at Georgia Dermatology Center in Cumming, GA, has found that there are added health benefits to removing excess fat from the body. Liposuction can produce significant physical and mental benefits, particularly when weight loss and exercise have been ineffective at reducing resistant fat.

Though liposuction is not intended as a large-scale weight loss method, it is an effective tool to change the shape of the body, alter the areas where the body stores fat, and enhance body contours through the selective removal of fatty tissue. Dr. Gross can reshape almost any area of the body where unwanted fat exists, including the buttocks, thighs, hips, abdomen, chest, waist, neck and chin. The result is a more proportionate and attractive shape, and a heightened self-confidence due to the improvement in one’s appearance.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Fat Reducer Exilis or Vanquish
Each non-surgical procedure has been a proven method of reducing inches from the waist, love handles, abdomen, and thighs.


With Vanquish you can reduce fat, destroy fat cells and lose inches in places you didn’t think possible.  Vanquish is a non-invasive procedure powered by radio frequency technology. It is an ideal alternative to liposuction for patients that have areas of fat on their body that they would still like to get rid of. The beauty of Vanquish is that it is completely pain free. It treats the entire core, the abdomen and the flanks in one 30 minute session.

It typically takes 5 to 6 treatments to get the maximum results from Vanquish. The really nice thing about Vanquish, there are really no side effects.

is an FDA approved device that offers a non-surgical solution for fat reduction and skin tightening anywhere on the body for use on both men and women.

The medical aestheticians at Georgia Dermatology Center in Cumming, GA have all been specially trained on how to use the Exilis device to achieve the best results. Exilis uses safe radio-frequency waves to heat your skin and target fat cells creating thermal energy that speeds up the metabolic activity of the fat cells causing them to shrink. At the same time it stimulates and strengthens the collagen network which improves skin laxity and texture.

Only Exilis has been proven to achieve visible loss within just a few weeks. Other non-surgical fat reduction processes take months to produce clear results. Exilis results are possible due to the depth that the radio frequency energy can reach – up to 28mm into fat cells. This is more than three times what other fat loss treatments are capable of.

Using Exilis for fat reduction, the side benefit is the simultaneous tightening of skin in the treatment area. This means not only better contours, but also the reduction of cellulite.
While you will be able to see results after the first treatment, optimum results are obtained after 4 to 5 treatments. Exilis is one of the favorite treatments of Georgia Dermatology Center’s patients. They love how the treatments allow them to regain their figure without having to have a surgical procedure.
