Liposuction continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures, ranking among the top 5 along with rhinoplasty, facelifts, eyelid surgery, and breast augmentation in 2020; however, it is interesting to note that the number of liposuction procedures has fallen dramatically since the year 2000, by 40% overall. This could be due to the rise in non-invasive body treatments and advances in technology that make those treatments as effective as liposuction while requiring less recovery and downtime. Nevertheless, you will likely have patients who undergo liposuction. Below, we discuss how to support and enhance their results, as well as the non-invasive alternatives your clinic can offer them.
To most of your patients, liposuction probably seems like a simple procedure. The truth is, liposuction is a serious surgical procedure that requires a prolonged recovery time. The procedure itself does have risks, but assuming your patients have a good outcome with no adverse effects, they may still want to augment their results or treat the scarring that can occur from the incisions.
Because liposuction displaces fatty tissue, patients have to go through a worse-before-better period as this tissue swells and resettles. Sometimes, the areas that have been treated never fully smoothen, leaving lumpy areas that can benefit from body contouring treatments. It also takes time for the skin of the affected area to snap back into shape, as skin elasticity adjusts to the new contours of the body. In many cases, skin laxity will be a lingering issue just as it is for people who have lost weight abruptly due to diet or exercise.
Venus Legacy™ is a multi-purpose device powered by proprietary (MP)2 technology (a combination of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields) and features cutting-edge VariPulse™ technology. In addition to skin tightening and circumferential reduction, Venus Legacy™ smoothens out focal fat demarcations that can occur after liposuction. With Venus Legacy™ you can also augment your clinic offerings with the popular Trim & Tite™ package, a new and effective skin tightening solution for superior clinical results to enhance your patient’s fat reduction treatment, weight loss program, or liposuction procedure.
In order to perform liposuction, doctors need to make one or more small incisions in the area to be treated. The scars left behind can be addressed with skin resurfacing treatments. Using the most advanced skin resurfacing technology available, Venus Viva™ MD is a highly customizable tabletop device that delivers exceptional results with low downtime and is safe for all shades of skin. Using NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) with SmartScan™ technology, Venus Viva™ MD is a fractional resurfacing system that allows customized control of ablation and coagulation for enhanced efficacy in resolving mild to severe skin damage like surgical scarring.
There’s no question that the popularity of non-surgical body treatments is on the rise. Over 9.3 million body shaping & skin tightening procedures were performed in 2018 and by 2023, this number is estimated to grow by 30%.
Venus Bliss™ uses non-invasive lipolysis, a process that involves diode laser technology and radio frequency energy to gently heat and dissolve hard-to-budge fat cells that tend to accumulate in the thighs, abdomen, and other areas commonly targeted by liposuction. For your patients, this is a better fat reduction solution than liposuction because they’ll be able to enjoy their slimmer appearance without the pain, cost, and downtime a surgical procedure would require. For your clinic, Venus Concept’s state-of-the-art devices give you the highest return on investment with an accessible subscription business model and no per-usage fee or costly consumables.
