Portland area patients ask, “What is Vanquish fat removal?”
Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive Portland sees many patients who are interested in reducing areas of fat and improving their body contours. While liposuction is an effective method for patients who have large areas of fat, there are ways for patients with smaller fat deposits to maintain their appearance and reduce these stubborn pockets of fat in an affordable, non-invasive manner: Vanquish.
What is Vanquish? Vanquish is a radiofrequency treatment that can offer fat removal without needles, knives, and downtime. Vanquish works by targeting unwanted fat and shrinking it down, allowing the body to flush it out naturally. Patients will not be able to see as dramatic of results as liposuction. However, there can be dramatic improvement, especially in circumferential fat reduction such as around the abdomen. Patients can discuss with their doctor the many areas that can be treated for improvement that occurs over the course of time.
Vanquish does not require patients to take time off work or their regular activities to heal. Instead, patients are able to go back to their daily routine without interruption, making it one of the best, non-invasive fat removal options available today. Thanks to continued advances in medicine, patients can use this amazing technology right in our practice.
Vanquish is appropriate for patients of all weights. It is not necessary for patients to be at their ideal weight to target unwanted fat on their body. We do recommend that patients go through a consultation and evaluation to determine if they are appropriate candidates. Some contraindications include patients who are pregnant, nursing, or have metal implants within their body. This can be discussed with Dr. Adam Maddox at Thrive before treatments are started.
Patients should have from four to six treatments completed to see optimum results. This is because the changes happen over the course of time as a gradual improvement. In addition, some patients may prefer to continue treatments for even more fat reduction and to maintain their results.
If you live in the Portland area and are interested in Vanquish radiofrequency treatment, contact our team at Thrive to schedule a consultation appointment and evaluation to determine candidacy.
