On January 11, 2012 in Hayward, CA, Solta Medical, Inc., the pioneer in fractional resurfacing and non-invasive skin tightening declared the arrival of its innovative Liposonix technology in both the United States and Canada. Using advanced high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology, Liposonix is a non-surgical lasting fat reduction method that has been clinically shown to slim down the waistline by at least one pant or dress size without any kind of surgery or downtime. It is designated for non-invasive waist circumference reduction for use on both the abdomen and those ever-dreaded love handles.

“Liposonix is a significant scientific advance for people who want a safe, effective and convenient way to get rid of that last unwanted inch around the waist,” said Dr.Concannon Medical Director of Concannon Plastic Surgery. He further explained that “When diet and exercise just aren’t enough to lose that last inch, the Liposonix custom contouring treatment is a terrific option for patients to achieve the shape they want without the expense, discomfort and recovery time of invasive procedures, such as liposuction.”
Unlike other non-invasive fat reduction treatments, Liposonix permanently eliminates the fat cells found below the skin while avoiding any harm to the skin, require only one treatment in a procedure that takes around one hour time. The body naturally processes and removes the fat tissue over a timeframe of 8 to 12 weeks, leaving behind the desired slimmer, more defined waistline. Clinical studies have verified an average waist circumference reduction of approximately 2.6 cm (1 inch) after just one treatment of Liposonix. That’s right… One treatment, one hour, one inch!
To examine the extent of the desire to lose fat in the waist area, Solta Medical sponsored “The State of Love Handles in America”  (
The findings revealed that:
  •  62% of women say their tummy/love handles are the part they are most uncomfortable with
  • 45% state they would give up sex for an entire year to lose an inch. 
  • 66% would give up chocolate for an entire year to lose an inch.
  • 75% would give up clothes shopping for an entire year to lose an inch.
It is quite evident by the survey results that there is a huge demand for this type of fat removal treatment. In fact, more than a half million fat reduction procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2011 alone, and it is estimated that the non-invasive fat reduction market will grow by nearly 42% each year through 2016.
