Liposonix Procedure

For patients who find that regular diet and exercise are not enough to remove the final inches of fat from their body, Liposonix® fat reduction may be the answer. This non-invasive fat removal treatment uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to permanently destroy fat cells nearly anywhere below the neck. With short treatment times and no recovery period, Liposonix® allows you to stop stressing about those final pockets of fat and start enjoying your sculpted contours.

Your Liposonix® Options

Areas of enhancement:


While it seems as though excess fat has no difficulty forming on the abdomen, it is often difficult to get rid of. Liposonix® offers fat reduction treatment for the abdomen to reveal a flatter, firmer stomach.


Love handles develop on both men and women and can lead to insecurities. Liposonix® gets rid of unwanted fat to reveal smoother contours.


For some women, excess fat settles on the area of the back beneath the bra. This causes the appearance of a “bra roll” that shows through clothing. Liposonix® can improve this area.


The upper arms are one of the most challenging areas to tone, especially as you get older. Liposonix® targets fat cells in the upper arms to reveal sculpted, firm arms.


Each body stores fat differently. For some patients, fat settles on the thighs. Liposonix® addresses the upper legs to reveal a tighter and more shapely physique.


What do you desire?

Thinner Waistline

Patients turn to diet and exercise to rid themselves of fat on their waistline, often to no avail. Even with the most dedicated of routines, losing those final inches can be difficult, if not impossible. Liposonix® addresses the pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise to reveal a thinner, flatter waist.

Sculpted Contours

While many patients use Liposonix® to define their midsection, it is also effective on areas that are harder to treat such as the upper arms and thighs. Liposonix® offers full body contouring with little time investment and no sweat.

Increased Confidence

It is frustrating and disheartening when your hard work at the gym doesn’t pay off. Having diet-resistant pockets of fat can negatively affect your confidence levels and may make you want to cover up areas of your body. Instead of hiding under layers of clothing, wear the clothes you want and enhance your confidence levels with Liposonix®.

Non-Invasive Fat Removal

Cosmetic fat removal procedures have been around for years. Unfortunately, most of these procedures are surgical, invasive, and require extended periods of downtime. Liposonix® provides noticeable fat reduction with no downtime or recovery period.

Liposonix® Concerns


Liposonix® requires minimal downtime and patients can often return to work and exercise on the same day as the treatment. Temporary tenderness may be present at the treatment site, which can last for a few days. Final results tend to show between eight and 12 weeks after the treatment, once the destroyed fat cells have been processed and eliminated from the body. Most patients who have their abdomen and flanks treated can expect to see a one-inch reduction on their waist, which is equivalent to one dress or pant size.


Liposonix® is not a surgical procedure, and therefore no scars will be present.


For your Liposonix® treatment, you will remain comfortably awake. You may experience mild discomfort during the procedure; however, an oral pain medication administered in the doctor’s office will remedy this. Temporary tenderness, bruising, swelling, and redness may occur afterward and can last up to several days.


There have been no reported complications associated with this procedure. Patients may experience temporary side effects such as swelling, bruising, and tenderness. The advanced Liposonix® technology allows for the precise treatment of the targeted areas. No skin or surrounding tissue is damaged during this procedure, making it safe as well as effective.


The cost of your Liposonix® treatment depends on the size of the treatment area and the number of areas treated. During your consultation, Dr. Wilson and his team will be able to determine if you are a candidate for Liposonix® and what you can expect your treatment to cost.

Liposonix Frequently Asked Questions in Huntsville, AL

Am I a candidate for Liposonix®?

Liposonix® is a fat reduction procedure that is ideal for patients who are dieting and exercising but have difficulty losing the final pockets of excess fat. Liposonix® is not suitable for patients looking for a substitute for diet and exercise. This procedure is designed to sculpt and define contours, not to eliminate large amounts of fat cells. Patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations. The area treated must have an inch of fat measured while pinching the tissues.

How is Liposonix® performed?

Liposonix® is non-invasive and requires no anesthesia. During your treatment, you will lay comfortably awake while the Liposonix® device applies high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to the fat cells below the skin’s surface. This device is held stationary over the treatment area, and an automatic pattern generator moves the ultrasound back and forth for the consistent and uniform treatment of the target area. Liposonix® treatments last approximately one hour and only require a single session per treatment area.

Can Liposonix® be combined with any other procedure?

Liposonix® is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that sculpts, tightens, and firms nearly anywhere on the body. This treatment is usually performed as a standalone procedure.

Is Liposonix® FDA approved?

Liposonix® is currently FDA approved for fat reduction on the abdomen and flanks. Although it has not been approved yet, Liposonix® has shown successful “off-label” results for treatment on nearly any area below the neck.
