How Much Downtime is Associated with Non-Surgical Body Contouring?

Non-surgical body contouring is becoming more and more popular among both men and women, and for a good reason. With our busy lives today, we simply don’t have time for loads of downtime or scars from liposuction and surgery. Thankfully, there are plenty of options for patients seeking to contour their figure without surgery.

At New York Skin & Vein Centers, our go-to treatment for non-surgical fat reduction is the Vanquish ME Fat Melting System. Treatments are quick and easy to fit into your daily routine.

Is Vanquish ME Really Non-Invasive?

Yes! Vanquish ME uses powerful, yet gentle radio-frequency technology to selectively target and kill pockets of fat. Surrounding tissue remains completely unharmed during the process. Over time, dead fat cells are naturally metabolized and flushed from the body.

When Can I Get Back to My Normal Activities?

Vanquish ME is considered a no-downtime procedure. Patients can get back to their normal routine immediately after treatment. Vanquish ME is done in-office and takes less than 1-hour to complete. Men and women can easily schedule their body contouring treatment during their lunch break or while out and about running errands.

Will I Have Any Restrictions?

Unlike other treatments, Vanquish can treat us “bigger” people who aren’t gym rats. And there are no post-treatment restrictions associated with the Vanquish ME Fat Melting System. Unlike similar procedures, you can immediately head back to work, hit the gym, or just relax.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Vanquish ME has little to no known side effects. Most patients enjoy the discrete procedure because they won’t have any visible signs that they’ve undergone any treatment. Directly after your procedure, you may feel slightly tight or sore similar to what you’d expect from a good workout.

Can I Get Real Results without Downtime?

One of the best things about Vanquish ME is the fact that you can get real results in as little as 2-weeks. An optimal outcome will typically occur in about 3-months. Several sessions may be needed to get you the initial results you’d like. Best yet, treated fat cells are unable to return, so maintaining lasting results is easier than ever.

Am I A Good Candidate for Vanquish ME?

You may be a good fit for Vanquish ME if you are in good general health and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do. Dr. Dohner will evaluate your concerns and walk you through every aspect of the procedure so you can make an informed decision about what’s right for you.
