High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU)


The Liposonix system delivers high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy that can disrupt subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) to provide a non-invasive approach to body contouring to achieve a desired aesthetic effect. Indicated for abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs and buttocks.

Proven Results Without Surgery

With over 10 years of research and testing behind it, Liposonix has a well-defined safety profile. In clinical studies, Liposonix was shown to destroy only the targeted area of fat and did not damage any of the surrounding tissue. Because the results typically occur over a period of 8 to 12 weeks, the body is not overloaded with fat in the blood stream and there was no overall effect seen in liver function tests during clinical trials.

Some patients have reported discomfort (pain) during and following treatment, which is typically rated as mild. In some patients bruising may occur, right after or sometimes days after the treatment. Liposonix is not for everyone – it is not intended to treat obesity or areas with too little fat. Tell your doctor if you have a bleeding disorder, are using a medication to thin your blood or prevent clotting, have had surgery in the area to be treated, or have an implanted electrical device, such as a pacemaker. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, the Liposonix treatment must be postponed. Ask your doctor if Liposonix is right for you

Candidates for Liposonix treatment must:
  1. Be able to "pinch-an-inch" (2.5 cm) of fat in the treatment area
  2. Have a body mass index (BMI) equal to or less than 30
  3. Have good overall health
  4. Have realistic expectations about the results

Treatment Results:
Upon completion of a post-study survey “…91.3% of Liposonix patient subjects responded that the flatness of their abdomen had improved after just one treatment1…” On average, one hour-long treatment resulted in a waistline reduction of 1 inch (2.5 cm) – about one dress or pant size. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks, which is how long the body takes to remove the destroyed fat tissue through its natural process.
