For women and men in Houston considering liposuction, an injection-based therapy may be an alternative for reducing localized pockets of fat and cellulite.
Houston, Texas, May 20, 2008 – Women and men interested in removing localized fat on the abdomen, thighs, arms, neck and even the face in certain cases now have another option to consider along with liposuction. Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Camille Cash now offers Lipo-dissolve Plus, an injection-based fat removal therapy.
Lipo-dissolve Plus is an expanded version of its predecessor, Lipo-dissolve, which became available in the United States several years ago but has been popular in Europe for decades. Treatment consists of a series of injections containing naturally-occurring chemicals. The chemicals break down fat so it can be harmlessly absorbed by the body.
The “plus” in the “Lipo-dissolve Plus” refers to the use of MedSculpt, an innovative computerized system that combines ultrasound with micro-massage to achieve smoother and more even fat removal. Medsculpt also eliminates the lumps and bumps associated with most forms of fat removal, including traditional liposuction.
“For the right candidate, Lipo-dissolve Plus offers an effective alternative to liposuction in Houston. Patients who have chosen the treatment have been very pleased with the results and are enthusiastic about the treatment’s ability to reduce fatty bulges,” says Dr. Camille Cash. “In some cases, patients have experienced a significant reduction in the appearance of cellulite and skin tightening over the treated area as well,” adds Dr. Cash.
Dr. Cash notes that it’s important for men and women interested in Lipo-dissolve Plus to seek treatment from a qualified medical professional. “One of the keys to the success of Lipo-dissolve Plus is in the selection of appropriate candidates,” she said, “in terms of both their physical characteristics and their lifestyle.”
Dr. Cash points out that the physician needs to identify the appropriate areas of the body to treat and educate the patient on a healthy lifestyle to ensure long-lasting results. She is dedicated to educating patients and maintains a Web site (www.camillecashmd.com) to help women and men in Houston learn more about their cosmetic surgery options.
For patients who are good candidates, the benefits of Lipo-dissolve Plus are numerous. There is little downtime, since it’s a non-surgical procedure. Lipo-dissolve Plus is also less expensive than traditional liposuction.
Some patients experience minor swelling or bruising after treatment that resolves in a few days. Even if more than one area is treated at the same time, the procedure usually takes under an hour in Dr. Cash’s office and involves just minimal discomfort.
“It’s important to keep in mind that because the dissolution of fat is a gradual process, your results will take a few weeks to a few months to become fully apparent,” said Dr. Cash. But even with those considerations, Lipo-dissolve Plus is proving to be a viable choice for some of my Houston liposuction patients.”
