How to Decide If Exilis or Liposuction Is Right for You

AdobeStock_58576676You’ve tried following a healthy diet and exercise routine and have finally reached your target weight, only to find that your body doesn’t look quite as you remember it the last time you weighed this much. It’s frustrating, but there are ways to get around those stubborn pockets of fat with the help of a board-certified plastic surgeon. The first question you’ll need to answer is surgical or nonsurgical?

Liposuction may be the first procedure to come to mind when you think of sculpting your figure, but it’s not the only option. Exilis is a nonsurgical alternative, which may be more suitable for you.

   You may prefer Exilis if you’d rather avoid surgery, while still achieving a more streamlined look.

How Exilis Works

Exilis is suitable for use on both the face and body, proving to be particularly popular for treating bra fat and back fat. Exilis works by heating the targeted treatment area, eliminating fat and encouraging collagen production. This nonsurgical, in-office procedure involves no needles, no anesthesia, no pain and a same-day return to your usual activities.

Exilis can also tighten the skin in the targeted area, whereas liposuction may not have a significant effect on skin, which may need to be dealt with using an additional procedure. Exilis won’t give as an extensive result as liposuction, but in many people, Exilis is all that is necessary.

What Liposuction Involves

Liposuction is a surgical procedure which removes fat cells in order to achieve a smoother silhouette. As liposuction involves surgery, you will require anesthetic and can expect an initial recovery time of around 2 weeks with the final result being obtained in 4 to 6 months.

Both Exilis and liposuction are most suitable for those who are at or near their target weights and seeking a helping hand with combating problem areas.
