Alternatives When Considering Liposuction

One alternative method to traditional and tumescent liposuction is mesotherapy. Mesotherapy involves a series of injections of varying ingredients. According to advocates of this method, the injected fluid breaks down fatty pockets effectively and is the most minimally invasive of the liposuction techniques. Generally, it is not a more cost-effective method of getting rid of fat; on average each session costs around $500, and requires multiple repeat sessions to achieve the desired affect. This technique is controversial, and doctors encourage patients to carefully research options prior to deciding on this technique.

Doctors who regularly perform mesotherapy on patients claim that the mixes of chemicals injected under the skin literally melt the fat away. They also claim that not only does mesotherapy fight fat, it can also be used to treat backaches, headaches and neck pain. These surgeons are quick to cite a 1994-95 study claiming that those receiving the injections lost weight even without diet and exercise.

The American Association of Plastic Surgeons (AAPS) says that mesotherapy is not a guaranteed safe or effective method of removing excess fat, citing a lack of research data and evidence. Other critics call the method "too good to be true," and do not find the claims to melt fat away credible. They also say that while mesotherapists assert that risk factors are slim and downtime virtually non-existent, no one is quite sure what ingredients these chemical cocktails contain. Some may use various plant extracts, others chemical combinations or mixes of both. The general consensus among physician members of the AAPS is that it cannot be determined to be safe or effective until more hard data and case studies are performed.

Many other alternatives to liposuction are available to consumers. Most are unsupported by the AAPS but are widely available on the Internet and through TV Informercials. These methods tend to have extremely varied results, and are not supported by medical research or studies. Most of these alternative methods are based on the do-it-yourself principle and are backed by testimonials from past and present users of the product.

In the fast-paced world as we live in, many are not satisfied unless they achieve immediate results. Liposuction or liposuction alternatives seem to be the best route to go for many. It is safe to say that liposuction is not for everyone and often the risks will outweigh the benefits. According to the Food and Drug Administration, the only safe and effective alternative to liposuction is the tried and true route of diet and exercise. The FDA also suggests that people learn to accept the way they look and embrace who they are. The bottom line is that as one begins his or her search, they will likely be overwhelmed with advertisements and an overload of information to process. The best advice is to consult with a qualified cosmetic surgeon who will objectively review an individual's needs and weigh the risks and benefits of any given procedure.
