What is NS fat reduction?
Nonsurgical fat reduction offered at VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV is a great option for patients who are struggling with stubborn fat and cellulite, but do not wish to undergo the stress and risks of an invasive surgery like liposuction. Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, our board-certified plastic surgeon, offers two different systems that are both designed to safely and effectively eliminate fat cells in the abdomen, lower back, buttocks, and thigh areas for a slimmer, toned contour. The Liposonix and BodyFX technology uses concentrated bursts of either radio frequency or ultrasound energy to target fat and cellulite that are resistant to diet and exercise — all without the need for an extensive recovery period. After one or more quick sessions, patients have reported losing multiple inches and reducing their clothing size thanks to this body contouring technique.
Can I have fat removed?
The ideal candidates for nonsurgical fat reduction will have:
- Reached a healthy, stable weight
- Stubborn fat on their abdomen, flanks, lower back, thighs, or buttocks
- A desire for a noninvasive approach that tones the body
- Good skin elasticity and overall health
- Realistic expectations for their outcome
Types of Fat Reduction
VIP Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the two following options for nonsurgical fat reduction to our Las Vegas, NV patients:
The Liposonix system utilizes focused, high-intensity ultrasound energy to penetrate deeply beyond just the surface layer of the skin. This unique technology allows for greater depth to be reached when targeting and destroying the subcutaneous fat cells, as opposed to certain laser devices that are only able to affect the body's top layer. This treatment is ideal for large surface areas such as the abdomen and flanks. Many patients have reported after a single, one-hour session having lost one inch around their waist, which is typically equivalent to one pant size. Multiple sessions can be administered as well to maximize results. Noticeable results usually take around 8 – 12 weeks to appear.
This treatment combines both radio frequency energy and a negative energy massage (vacuum) to simultaneously heat the skin's deep tissues and suction the top layer for maximum fat cell destruction, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening. BodyFX is designed to treat the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, thighs, and any other area that may benefit. Typically, 6 – 12 treatments are recommended for achieving optimal results, though some improvement can be noticed after one session. Fat and cellulite reduction can be observed right away, but the skin tightening process will take a more gradual, slow approach, yielding peak results after around 6 – 12 months.
These treatments are not an alternative to weight loss and are used for body contouring purposes only.
"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017

"I have been seeing Dr. Khorsandi for various procedures since 2016 and he is the most knowledgeable, skillful and trustworthy plastic surgeons in Nevada. He truly cares about his patients and their well-being. Dr. Khorsandi's staff is also very attentive and helpful. Thank you Dr. Khorsandi, you rock! Deborah V. "- D.V. / Healthgrades / Sep 25, 2021
"Minor stomach lipo & Fupa lift - overall, I really recommend VIP! - I figured to leave a good review on here. Because the Doctor is cool & does a good job for real. I was skeptic & scared at first due to lack of 'before & after' photos on the site or any videos, but thankfully, he really is good.I'm 5'3, 114 pounds. I had a minimal fat on my stomach that you could see mainly just when I sat down which is natural but I wanted to get rid of it anyway & Pubic area lift because after 10 pounds of Quarantine 2020 weight loss, that FUPA was just not going away. Dr. Khorsandi did a good job. The scar looked pretty scary at first but in 1 month it just turned into a thin pink line that will eventually fade.I read reviews that people complained that he seemed not very carrying, I must disagree, He's very caring. They are just really busy & have to take patients fast. So with FUPA lift... be prepared to have a brutal discomfort for the first 3-4 days. No pain really, just extreme discomfort, weird unpleasant sensations & slow careful walking. It gets better every 7 days I noticed.Anesthesiologist doctor was really cool too. I had panic attacks before the procedure from being afraid but everything went very well. It felt like I slept for 20 minutes when in reality it was about 2-3 hours. Prices at VIP are better than in stupid LA too. California is obnoxious with pricing! Overall, I really recommend VIP! You will not be disappointed."- S. / RealSelf / Jul 25, 2021
"Best Decision of my Life - I had a rhinoplasty and liposuction on my chin/neck area by Doctor Khorsandi exactly one year ago in July of 2020. I have hated my nose and side profile my ENTIRE life. I would never take pictures of myself looking to the side because I was so embarrassed of it. I finally decided that I needed to do something about it so I came to real self to look at doctors and read reviews. When I came across Doctor Khorsandi I was so impressed with the reviews and before and after photos I booked a consultation. The whole process was so easy and everyone was so nice! Doctor Khorsandi created an image of my nose and how it would turn out and I loved it but the day before my surgery there was something I wanted to change. I was hesitant to call and ask if this was something that I could do because I did not want them to be annoyed that I waited until the last minute, but I did and they were SO understanding. They got me right in and Doctor Khorsandi tweaked the image perfectly and with no complaints that I had been annoying and wanted a change lol. I truly can’t fully express in this review how happy I am with how everything turned out. I get so many compliments on my nose…literally just last night at the bar I was approached by a guy who said “I know this is a really random thing to compliment but you have a beautiful nose” and that was not the first time someone randomly approached me and said that since having my surgery. It’s the best feeling ever!!! Thanks so much to Dr Khorsandi! If you are thinking about getting this done, do not wait any longer!!"- S. / RealSelf / Jul 15, 2021
During each procedure, patients will be able to lie down and relax. Neither fat reduction option should be painful or uncomfortable, though patients can expect to feel a heating sensation underneath their skin due to the intense energy being emitted from the handpiece. These are short, outpatient treatments that will last around one hour depending on which area is being treated. If recommended, we will schedule additional sessions during the appointment.
Generally, anesthesia and numbing agents are not needed as these procedures should be comfortable. Once completed, patients can return home to their normal activities with no downtime. There may be some redness or slight bruising in the area after treatment, but these side effects should subside very quickly. Patients can expect their results to be long term, though a healthy diet and regular exercise are required to maintain fat loss and prevent weight gain from disrupting their outcome.
