Zerona Liposuction

Zerona is an FDA approved method of laser liposuction that safely removes the body's layers of subcutaneous fat by emulsifying it. Patients may choose Zerona over other more invasive treatments because it slims the body within six forty minute treatments and detoxifies the fat cells within the body. Zerona is a method of laser liposuction used to reduce the subcutaneous fat layer by emulsifying the fat within the cells resulting in a slimmer body.

Zerona Liposuction Defined

Zerona is a non-invasive, non-surgical laser liposuction treatment that removes fat from the waist, hips and thighs. Patients prefer to use Zerona because there is no surgery involved, it is less expensive than liposuction, produces excellent results, is FDA approved, and does not leave bruising.  Patients do not experience pain, or any different sensation when undergoing Zerona treatments.  

There is no recovery time, and no need to wear expensive garments while experiencing Zerona. Six forty minute sessions are performed to remove excess fat by running an FDA approved low intensity laser over the fatty tissue of the waist, hips, and thighs. 

A Good Candidate For Zerona Liposuction

A good candidate for Zerona Liposuction is a patient who desires to lose one or more inches of fat from their midsection and thighs.  Zerona is not as effective as liposuction or traditional cosmetic surgery, but is far less expensive, and works well to reduce inches from the areas of the body that tend to have the most fat.  Only healthy, non-pregnant patients should undergo Zerona treatments, and they should be conducted by an English-speaking board-certified cosmetic surgeon. 

Zerona Liposuction Procedure

The Zerona procedure is simple. A cosmetic surgeon will have the patient disrobe. The low-level laser is then placed over the front of the patient’s body for twenty minutes to eliminate excess fat while the patient relaxes.  The cosmetic surgeon will return after the twenty minutes, and will position the laser over the back of the patient’s body.  There is no heat or tingling sensation during the entire procedure. After the forty minute treatment the patient returns to their normal daily activities and the fat continues to emulsify and leaves the body naturally.

Zerona Liposuction Recovery

One of the things that patients love most about Zerona is that there is no recovery time, and the entire six session process generally occurs over a period of two weeks, at forty minutes per session. Patients should refrain from caffeine and alcohol intake during the two week period, as well as increase their water intake to a minimum of eight glasses per day to assist with the flushing of the fat.

Risks And Side Effects Of Zerona Liposuction

The FDA has not identified any risks or side effects to Zerona, and there is no damage to the cells during or after the procedure.

Cost Of Zerona Liposuction

The cost of Zerona is around $2500, not including any pretreatment physicals. Contact a board-certified plastic or cosmetic surgeon to discover how Zerona can benefit you today.
