The Two Most Common Alternatives to Invasive Liposuction

Last Updated on 2 years ago by Nicky Johnson

For a long time, Los Angeles and especially Beverly Hills have been considered the Makkah of the beauty and cosmetic industry. You would see hundreds of surgeons and estheticians in Beverly hills. As per ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons), there are almost twice as many plastic surgeons in Los Angeles County compared to big metropolitan areas like NYC. 

It is safe to say that Beverly Hills is the epicenter of beauty treatments and plastic surgeries in the country. The citizens of Beverly Hills pay extra attention to their looks and overall aesthetics. 

Surgeries like Liposuction Beverly Hills are also common. People opt for such surgeries to lose extra weight and tone their physique. However, it is not the best treatment for everyone since Liposuction is invasive and leaves one with scars and stitches. 

However, a few reputable clinics offer non-invasive and minimally-invasive liposuction in Beverly hills. There are two types of liposuction treatments available; SAFE Lipo and EZ Lipo. 

Here are some things you need to know about alternatives to liposuction treatments. 

Alternatives to Invasive Liposuction

EZ Lipo

This procedure is also called Smart Liposuction. It is an excellent alternative to traditional lipo sculpting methods, and it is a French method that is minimally invasive. 

EZ Lipo is preferred by many people in Beverly Hills and worldwide to tone the shape of their body, improve skin tone, and treat stretch marks to some extent. 

This minimally invasive treatment will be performed under local anesthesia because an incision of up to 2 millimeters is made on the treatment area. 

The incision is necessary as a mini cannula will be inserted inside the body, and from the incisions, only the unwanted fat will be extracted. 

Unlike traditional liposuction, which leaves one with various scars and stitches, there will almost be no stitches or scars after EZ lipo. 

After the treatment, it is quite common to see some swelling and redness around the incision area, but they will fade in a couple of weeks. 

It can take up to three months for the tissues in the body to heal, and the stretch marks on your skin will also start to fade away. However, it is common that the stretch marks will not disappear entirely in most cases. 

Before getting EZ Lipo, you must choose the right physician to perform the treatment. A surgeon with the right experience will be able to guide you through the process in a better way. 


The second most common substitute for invasive Liposuction in Beverly Hills is the SAFE Lipo treatment. 

The treatment is performed by administering tumescent anesthesia as the treatment requires the insertion of a cannula in the targeted area. 

Herein, SAFE is an Acronym for Separation, Aspiration, and Fat Equalization. These are also the stages of the treatment. 

In the separation stage, a powered wand is used to separate the fat tissue gently. It is followed by aspiration wherein fat from the deeper most layer is removed, followed by removing fat from the middle layer and then from the superficial layer. 

In the fat equalization stage, the primary focus is not on removing the fat from the superficial layer. Still, the focus is to spread the remaining fat evenly inside the superficial layer.

The fat equalization stage is arguably the most crucial step of the whole process because it ensures no indention or unevenness in the skin. 

These are the two common alternatives to the traditional Liposuction treatment. Ensure that you pay extra attention to choosing the best physician for the treatment.
