According to a 2015 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 88 percent of people are bothered by excess weight. And, a recent study by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery showed that liposuction is the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States and continues to gain in popularity. While liposuction is a popular option for body contouring, there are also several non-invasive body contouring options available today that minimize risk, cost and downtime for patients.
Just twenty years ago, the concept of melting away fat was the stuff of our imagination. Today, however, cutting-edge medical devices using cold and heat are able to safely destroy fat cells underneath the skin, allowing them to be flushed out of the body naturally through the lymphatic system. After a thorough review of the latest body contouring technologies on the market, Anderson Plastic Surgery & MedSpa has chosen Venus Concept’s cutting-edge Venus Legacy technology to address our patients’ body contouring needs.

What is Venus Concept’s Venus Legacy Technology And How Does It Work?
Unlike some body contouring procedures which use freezing for fat reduction, Venus Legacy uses controlled heat for therapeutic treatments, including fat reduction, skin tightening and cellulite reduction.
While many say fat freezing can be painful, Venus Legacy treatments are comfortable and safe for all skin types, and many patients compare it to getting a hot stone massage. Venus Legacy uses a combination of multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs) to shrink fat cells and stimulate collagen and elastin production, allowing the technology to simultaneously reduce fat and tighten and tone the skin, so patients are never left with sagging skin post-procedure.
Venus Legacy treatments take only 25 minutes and are painless, meaning patients can visit on their lunch breaks and return to work immediately afterward. Beyond mild redness and heat sensitivity, Venus Legacy treatments cause little to no discomfort or downtime.
To ensure the best results, we recommend eight to ten treatments, scheduled one week apart. At $400 per treatment, costs are comparable to other non-invasive body contouring options on the market today.
