Fat reduction

Outside of a tummy tuck, you can remove body fat 3 different ways:

  • Suck it out (liposuction)
  • Freeze it
  • Use heat

Let’s explore how each treatment works, so you can better understand what works for you.

Quick-list of Emsculpt Neo FAQs in Houston.


Of the three ways to remove body fat, liposuction does not count as non-invasive

The process involves disrupting the fat cells in the target area through saline injections, ultrasound or laser. Then, through either a single incision, or multiple incisions to allow different angles, a cannula (small tube) is inserted through the incision(s). The cannula works in conjunction with a suction apparatus, and the disrupted fat is sucked out.

Patients experience different lengths and levels of recovery time. Depending on the surgery, you might have to stay in the hospital for several days. 

You should expect bruising, swelling, and soreness for at least a few weeks. Additionally, your provider may want to control swelling by use of a compression garment for up to 2 months or more after your treatment.

Another likely recovery item will be antibiotics to prevent an infection. 

Freezing the fat 

The device used to freeze fat gently but firmly squeezes the treatment area, and freezes the fat therein. After the device is removed, a lump of frozen fat—akin to a frozen stick of butter— remains.

At this point the provider massages out the frozen fat. Most patients endure moderate discomfort during this process.

Heating the fat

The instrument used to heat the fat has 6 attachable treatment pads, allowing the provider to modify the treatment for each patient. Not only does the treatment affect the fat directly under the pad, it feathers out around the edges as well. This provides more area treated per pad application.

The heating causes a chain reaction in the fat called “apoptosis,” which is the destruction of the cell. Apoptosis combines with the body’s natural ability to flush these damaged cells, thereby permanently removing the fat. Using this method, patients can lose up to 24% or more of the treated fat.

The ChristiMD preference: bring on the heat

Dr. Christi Pramudji, founder of ChristiMD Medical Group, recommends heating unwanted fat for non-surgical fat removal in Houston. 

This fat removal procedure offers better versatility than others, not only in flexibility of treatment strength, but also a broader scope of target zones. Heating the fat can be applied to these areas:

  • Stomach (most popular)
  • Inner and outer thigh
  • Bra-fat
  • Flanks
  • Arms
  • Chin (double-chin)

For the heating style of fat removal treatment, ChristiMD Medical Group offers Emsculpt Neo® .

What is Emsculpt Neo?

The Emsculpt Neo system, based on the groundbreaking Emsculpt system, also disrupts the fat using radiofrequency energy to create the heat.

However, in conjunction with the fat removal, Emsculpt Neo also uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to contract your muscles in the target area. Think of it as a muscle-group workout that also washes out the fat in that area. Imagine contracting muscles in your abdomen, or maybe your arms/thighs, up to 20,000 times in 30 minutes. 

truSculpt ID can be combined with truSculpt Flex® treatments to achieve muscle building along with the fat reduction. Emsculpt Neo is the only treatment that does them both simultaneously.

For a non-heating version that helps reduce fat and treat cullite, try Cellulite Soundwave Solutions.

Fight cellulite with Cellulite Soundwave Solutions

Most of the non-invasive treatment options for cellulite have been focused around lasers and topicals. These procedures and home-remedies deliver minimal success. But there is a non-invasive body treatment which offers clinically-proven results: Cellulite Soundwave Solutions. 

The Cellulite Soundwave Solutions procedure utilizes the same technology for cellulite, skin tightening, and non-invasive body shaping.  Using soundwaves to disrupt cellulite, fat layers, and localized adiposity, Cellulite Soundwave Solutions works for all skin types, with zero downtime.
