Dr. Nicholas Sieveking explains the benefits of what he calls a “game-changing” technology for non-surgical fat removal.
Nashville, TN — Dr. Nicholas Sieveking, a board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon, says he is honored to be part of the first group of plastic surgeons in the country and the first plastic surgery center in the Nashville area to offer Vanquish, one of the latest advances in non-surgical fat reduction treatment. Dr. Sieveking says this non-invasive procedure is a game changer, as it is the only technology of its kind to provide relatively quick, comfortable treatment and long-term results.
In a recent blog post on his website titled, “Vanquish Fat Removal: How Does It Work?,” Dr. Sieveking explains the process. He notes that the Vanquish device is designed to never touch the skin, with placement approximately one inch above the treatment area. Radio frequency waves are emitted from the device, which are created to target and destroy excess fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin or muscle. Patients may feel a warming sensation during the procedure, but most people usually do not feel any pain. Once treated, the fat cells will be filtered out of the body through natural processes within two to eight weeks. Many patients have experienced a loss of up to three inches and two to three pounds after a cycle of Vanquish treatments.
Dr. Sieveking says this technology is exciting because it has been created to successfully eliminate a larger amount of fat than any other non-surgical fat reduction technology before it. He says it can be a great option for patients who would like to eliminate excess fat from their waistlines that has been resistant to diet and exercise, with the added benefit of no surgery, scarring, or excessive downtime. Dr. Sieveking notes that Vanquish is typically used to treat the abdomen, hips, and back.
Following the Vanquish treatment, most of Dr. Sieveking’s patients are able return to work and resume their normal daily activities immediately. Some patients may notice pink or red skin, a warm sensation, or swelling around the treated areas, but Dr. Sieveking says the effects are typically minimal and often subside quickly.
Dr. Sieveking suggests interested candidates contact a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform the Vanquish treatment. For individuals who would like to get rid of those few stubborn inches around their waistlines, but prefer alternatives to surgical liposuction, Dr. Sieveking says Vanquish can be a great option for long-term fat removal.
