3 Key Differences Between Zerona And Liposuction D.C. By Hadi Rassael on March 20, 2014

Liposuction is in the news so often that it’s easy to overlook that fact that there are a variety of liposuction options and alternatives on the market. Although traditional liposuction still reigns supreme because it offers incredible results, other options are quickly becoming patient favorites because they provide a different set of benefits.


The best way to determine which type of procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with your cosmetic surgeon. At Millennium Medical, we are happy to offer both Zerona and traditional liposuction D.C. to Washington D.C. residents.

1. Zerona And Liposuction Use Different Strategies To Eliminate Fat Cells


Most people are somewhat familiar with how liposuction works. The surgeon administers anesthesia before making a small incision in the treatment area. Then, a thin tube called a cannula is fed under the skin and literally sucks the fat cells out of the body. This is extremely effective because fat cells do not grow back, so the amount of fat in your body is immediately lowered.


On the other hand, Zerona uses laser technology to liquefy subcutaneous fat, which is located below the skin but above the muscle. Shape Magazine explains that the fat is then naturally flushed from your body, and, because fat cells also store toxins, the process can be cleansing and invigorating.


2. They Offer Different Results


Liposuction is best suited for patients who have very prominent problem areas that appear as large pockets of fat. Generally, these areas include the abdomen, arms or neck.


People who have attained the basic body shape that they are looking for but wish they could shed a few inches from their hips, thighs and abdomen should look into Zerona. It can treat a larger area than liposuction but tends to work best on thinner deposits of fat.


3. The Overall Experiences Are Very Unalike


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that offers more dramatic results but also requires a greater amount of recovery time. Although you will be left with minimal scaring, it takes between 2 to 6 weeks to fully recover. Alternatively, Zerona produces less dramatic results, but it is a non-invasive procedure, so there are no knives involved, and there is no down time.


When deciding between liposuction and Zerona, there are many factors to consider. For instance, if you are planning other cosmetic procedures, liposuction may be helpful in furnishing the fat needed for a fat transfer.
