If you are looking for a slimmer figure or a better silhouette, you have more options than ever before. While liposuction remains a favorite for those looking to get dramatic results, there are also non-surgical options to choose from, such as VelaShape™ III. It is critical that you understand these three differences between these options when choosing the best one for you.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure, whereas VelaShape III is not. This has a significant impact on their recovery time. With lipo, you will need to take time off work to rest, recover and let the bruising and swelling from the procedure go down. With VelaShape III, there is little to no downtime involved. While some people might experience some redness, it is usually nothing that requires time off work. When comparing lipo vs. non-surgical body contouring, this can be a major deciding factor.
Speed of Procedure

Liposuction can take up the majority of your day, not including at-home recovery time. You’ll need to arrive well in advance of your procedure to prepare for liposuction, and the procedure itself can take about an hour or more. Then, there is the recovery period before going home, which can be several hours. With non-surgical contouring, the whole process takes roughly an hour.
Scope of Results
As non-surgical body contouring options continue to advance, so do the scope of results that they are able to offer. While surgical procedures typically offer more dramatic results than their non-surgical counterparts, non-surgical treatments like VelaShape III now offer better results than ever before.
These treatments can help to reduce cellulite and tighten the skin in addition to removing stubborn fat.
