Invasive vs NonInvasive Treatments
Updated: Feb 23, 2019
As technology advances we are able to get a better understanding of the human body, how it works, and what it responds to. Patients now have a variety of options when it comes to treatments and procedures. As a part of the growing choices for patients, we are able to choose between invasive and noninvasive treatments.
Invasive procedures and surgeries involve making an incision in the patient's body and inserting instruments, medical devices and/or tools. On the contrary, minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures require very little, if any, insertion of needles and tools into the body.
The most common invasive body modification procedure is Liposuction. Liposuction is defined as a procedure that slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion (American Society of Plastic Surgeons).
For those looking for noninvasive options, this is where Total Body Aesthetic comes in, giving patients to power and freedom to choose when it comes to body modification.
What does this mean for us and what are the advantages of
noninvasive body modification?
According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, “Non-surgical fat reduction includes minimally invasive treatments that selectively break down fat cells in specific areas to reduce the size of subcutaneous fat pockets (fat deposits that sit beneath the skin, but above the muscle). A number of FDA cleared treatments are available, each achieving gradual, modest fat loss without surgery or downtime.”
Although fat reduction is a major part of noninvasive body modification procedures, Total Body Aesthetic offers a variety of noninvasive solutions for patients. Among these procedures are, Ultrasonic, Therma-Lift, and Lipo-Sculpt options for people to choose from. For an in-depth look at the treatments provided through Total Body Aesthetic, click here.
The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery suggests that noninvasive procedures provide patients with 5 key benefits:
Little to no downtime is required
This means that you should be back to your day-to-day activities much quicker than you would if going the invasive route. Patients are able to return to their regular routine without any major changes or adjustments.
No general anesthesia, incisions or scars
Invasive surgeries typically leave us with ugly scars, while noninvasive procedures leave our skin unharmed. Due to the pain associated with invasive procedures, anesthesia is often used to numb the body during the operation. With a noninvasive procedure, there isn’t a need for anesthesia.
Side effects are minimal for most patients
The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery states that there are a few risks associated with the noninvasive procedures that are growing in both popularity and demand. “Some patients experience temporary redness, minor bruising, numbness, tingling or discomfort. With certain technologies numbness may persist for several weeks. Scarring may occur if the treatment is used to remove more than the superficial surface layer of fat. Uneven results may occur.”
Gradual onset of results allows patients to be discreet about treatments
The process as well as the results of an noninvasive procedure appear much more natural than an invasive procedure. This allows patients the comfort of knowing that they can be discreet about their decision to move forward with their procedure if need be.
Results can last as long as a patient maintains his or her body
The long lasting impact of the treatment is up to YOU! You are now in control of your health, your body, and your future.
