Discover Non-Surgical Liposuction Alternatives in Brisbane

Non-invasive liposuction has become increasingly sought out after the introduction of treatments like Coolsculting fat freezing about 10 years ago.  Since then, radiofrequency, fat cavitation, laser and injectable techniques have been developed as a less intrusive substitute to traditional surgical strategies for spot fat reduction. In addition, advancements have enabled various non-invasive body sculpting treatments to help you achieve your desired results without surgery. We focus on Doctor only injectable treatments such as lipodissolve fat-dissolving injections.

Lipodissolve Injections for Fat Reduction

Lipodissolve injections are an innovative treatment that involves injecting a specially formulated solution into localised areas of excess fat. This procedure effectively reduces double chins and small pockets of stubborn fat that don’t respond well to diet or exercise.

Understanding Lipodissolve Injections

The lipodissolve treatment uses injections into fat cells to break down their walls, freeing fatty acids metabolised by the liver and excreted from the body. Let’s delve deeper into how this process works and what results you can expect after undergoing Lipodissolve.

Components of Lipodissolve Solution

The main component of the Lipodissolve solution is phosphatidylcholine (PC), derived from soybeans. It also contains deoxycholate (DC), a bile salt that helps emulsify fats in our digestive system. Combining these two ingredients creates an effective formula capable of breaking down stubborn fat deposits without causing damage to surrounding tissues or organs. Some practitioners may also add vitamins, minerals, or other compounds to enhance their effectiveness further (source).

How It Works on Stubborn Fat Deposits

Lipodissolve injections work by disrupting the membranes of fat cells through a process called lipolysis. Once injected into targeted areas such as under your chin or around your waistline, it causes adipocytes (fat cells) to release their contents – mainly triglycerides – which are broken down into glycerol and free fatty acids. These substances are then eliminated naturally from your body.
• Minimal discomfort: The procedure is relatively painless, with most patients reporting only mild pain during the injections.
• No downtime: Unlike traditional liposuction, non-surgical liposuction with Lipodissolve requires no anesthesia or recovery time. You can return to your daily activities immediately after treatment.
• Fewer side effects: Side effects are minimal and may include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.

Expected Results After Treatment

The results of Lipodissolve treatments vary depending on factors such as individual body composition and response to treatment. Most patients see a noticeable reduction in fat deposits within two to four sessions about four to six weeks apart. However, it’s essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle – including regular exercise and a balanced diet – for long-lasting results. Remember that while this minimally invasive treatment effectively targets stubborn fat pockets without surgery, it should not be considered an alternative for weight loss.

Other Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Treatments

Fat Freezing Technologies like Cooltech, Clatuu and Coolsculpting

Cooltech and Clatuu machines offer advanced non-surgical liposuction alternatives by using controlled cooling technology to freeze away unwanted fat cells. The frozen cells are then naturally eliminated from the body over time, resulting in noticeable reductions in targeted areas.

Radiofrequency and Laser Treatments for Melting Fat

In addition to freezing techniques, radiofrequency (RF) and laser-based methods are available for non-invasive fat reduction. RF treatments, such as Vanquish, use heat to destroy fat cells and stimulate collagen production for smoother skin. On the other hand, laser treatments like SculpSure utilise targeted wavelengths of light energy to break down unwanted fat without harming surrounding tissues.

Muscle Toning with Tesla Former or Emsculpt

The Tesla Former treatment is an excellent option for those interested in burning fat and building muscle simultaneously. This innovative technology uses magnetic field stimulation to contract muscles, increasing strength and definition rapidly.

• Lipodissolve Injections: Effective for reducing double chins and small pockets of stubborn fat.
• Fat Freezing Technologies: Cooltech and Clatuu machines offer non-surgical liposuction alternatives by freezing away unwanted fat cells.
• Radiofrequency & Laser Treatments: Vanquish (RF) heats fats while SculpSure (laser) breaks them down using light energy.
• Muscle Toning with Tesla Former: Simultaneously burn fat and build muscle through magnetic field stimulation.
So say goodbye to love handles and other fatty areas with these innovative non-invasive treatments.

FAQs about Non-Surgical Liposuction

Yes, non-surgical liposuction effectively reduces unwanted fat deposits and contours the body. Techniques such as Lipodissolve injections, Cooltech & Clatuu machines, radiofrequency treatments, and Tesla Former have shown promising results in clinical studies. However, these methods may require multiple sessions for optimal outcomes and are best suited for individuals with moderate fat reduction needs. None of these are alternatives to weight management or more extensive treatments like liposuction.

The side effects of non-surgical liposuction vary depending on the technique used but generally include temporary redness, swelling, bruising or numbness at treatment sites. In addition, in rare cases, patients may experience burns from laser or radiofrequency treatments or even freeze burns from cryolipolysis. Therefore using an experienced practitioner to minimise risks and ensure proper aftercare instructions are followed is essential.


Non-invasive lipo has some limitations compared to traditional surgical methods: it requires multiple sessions for significant results; effectiveness varies among individuals; it is unsuitable for large-volume fat removal, and though it is cheaper, you do need to consider overall cost due to repeated treatments. Skin tightening might also be less pronounced than surgical procedures like tummy tucks or facelifts.

• Lipodissolve Injections: Fat-dissolving solution injected into targeted areas
• Cooltech, Coolsculpting & Clatuu Machines: Fat freezing technology that crystallises adipose cells
• Radiofrequency Treatments: Heat energy penetrates deep layers of tissue, causing controlled damage to fat cells like Vanquish and Exilis
• Laser Treatments: Sculpsure’s 1064 laser targets and destroys fat cells
• Tesla Former or Emsculpt: Simultaneous fat burning and muscle toning using electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions

Liposuction Surgery vs Non-Invasive Liposuction.

Liposuction has been around for decades and recognised as an efficient process for removing fat, especially for more substantial fat deposits—non-surgical liposuction treatments developed in the last ten years. Non-surgical liposuction results cannot be compared to liposuction as they are two entirely different approaches. Non-surgical liposuction is ideal for small to medium fat deposits or what we would call stubborn pockets.

Pros Non-Surgical Liposuction

  • No anaesthesia, no surgery and minimal downtime.
  • Affordable treatments – vary between the technology, but you need to factor in multiple treatments required.
  • Across the range of technologies, there is a low side effect profile. However, non-invasive fat removal technologies do have side effects. Our therapists and doctors will go over these in your initial free consultation.

Con’s Non-Surgical Liposuction 

  • You can only treat small areas in a treatment session.
  • All non-surgical fat removal treatments generally require more than one session.

Pro’s Surgical Liposuction

  • Liposuction is aimed mainly at large fat deposits. It provides beneficial results for these fat treatments, i.e. you can achieve a more considerable reduction in the amount of fat with surgical liposuction in one surgical procedure

Cons of Surgical Liposuction:

  • Significant downtime with recovery taking 1-2 weeks.
  • Risks associated with surgical process and anaesthetic.
  • You need to wear compression garments for an extended period afterwards.
  • The cost of liposuction varies upwards of $4000 per area.
  • Risk of uneven, lumpy skin afterwards
