Fodor is more enthusiastic about the LipoSonix technology. "I am very optimistic," he says." I love the results," he says citing as much as a 7-centimeter reduction in waist circumference seen in clinical trials conducted in Mexico. This technology, which uses high-intensity ultrasound waves, beamed about an inch under the skin to break up fatty tissue, has been studied in both pig models and in 33 people in Mexico, he says. The company has applied for FDA status to begin preclinical studies in the U.S. and expects such trials to begin in 2007.
After you and your physician select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. A gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Vacuum applicators draw the tissue into the applicator cup. Applicators are secured to the treatment area. All applicators deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fat.
The best way to determine whether you’re fit for undergoing body sculpting without surgery is to consult the physician directly. There are two types of fat present in a human body. The first type is called visceral fat. This fat is present deep inside the muscle tissues and are not soft or pinchable. The other type is called subcutaneous fat. This kind of fat is present above the muscle and are really soft and pinchable. Subcutaneous fat can be easily removed using non-invasive techniques like laser contouring. However, if you are someone who carries a lot of visceral fat, you will need to take the long road and exercise to get a perfectly toned body.

The duration of a typical body sculpting treatment lasts for about thirty to forty minutes (maximum is an hour.) During this time, it is recommended to bring something with you to pass time since you will not be under a general anesthetic. Other ways to pass time is to get some of your work done or take a short nap while the procedure is going on. Comparing this to traditional surgical methods, which takes up to 10 hours to complete and a prolonged period of one month of downtime to recover.

The ACCUSCULPT™ procedure is an exciting body contouring treatment developed to meet the needs of patients seeking significant results with minimal downtime. It is ideal for areas such as the hips, thighs, knees, bra line, arms, and chest. Your physician uses the AccuSculpt contouring system to remove excess fat deposits that have settled in the target regions, which also results in overall skin tightening of the treated areas. Patented technology makes the procedure safer, more effective and less invasive than competing technologies.
You will be given specific instructions on properly maintaining your new appearance. Following treatment you may experience some bruising for up to 10 days. Depending on the areas to be treated, the procedure only takes about an hour, and you can generally expect to be back to your normal routine in two to three days, making the AccuSculpt treatment the perfect Friday afternoon procedure.
3. Crystallized fat. The procedure takes 30-45 minutes and when the machine is lifted, what’s left is an abnormal mold of frozen, crystallized fat—like those pin impression toys you stick your face in and it keeps the shape. The fat is then massaged back into your skin where it dies and is absorbed and eliminated by your body, never to return again.
CoolSculpting is unique in that it is the only method of fat loss that utilizes freezing technology. Other methods involve the use of heat, and include ultrasound energy, lasers, and radiofrequency.

I recommend downloading the app and booking in advance as the popular classes tend to book up.
