NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK FAQ's
WHAT IS A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK?
A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK gets rid of excess pockets of fat on the stomach that cannot be removed by exercise or diet.
HOW DOES A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK WORK??
A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK is performed using a technique known as intralipotherapy. Using DESOBODY - the newest body fat dissolving injection formula available on the market - the FDA approved solution is injected into the stomach using a specialised 4 or 6 point technique to destroy the fat cells.
WHAT IS THE ACTIVE SUBSTANCE?
DESOBODY contains the active ingredient sodium deoxycholate (deoxycholic acid) which is a special, medical detergent that literally destroys fat cells. and have been shown to be safer, more effective and more comfortable than other, older fat dissolvers on the market such as AQUALYX (which cannot be used on the body).
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK AND OTHER TREATMENTS OUT THERE?
DESOBODY works. Intralipotherapy works. Fact. Other methods / treatments that are marketed as non surgical tummy tucks - such as fat freezing, radiotherapy, and cavitation simply do not work - despite their claims.
AM I SUITABLE FOR A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK?
A non surgical tummy tuck is suitable for you if:
- Since having children, you have pockets of abdomen fat that are resistant to exercise and diet
- You have never had children, but have pockets of abdomen fat that are resistant to diet and exercise
- You have a normal BMI for your height and weight
- You can pinch more than 3cm of fat
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK VERSUS TRADITIONAL SURGERY
- Less invasive
- Less expensive
- Less downtime
- More cost effective
- No scars
WHAT ARE THE CONS OF A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK VERSUS TRADITIONAL SURGERY?
- Will not tighten skin
- Will not tighten muscles
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
2-4 sessions of DESOBODY at 4-6 weekly intervals is generally needed. Depending on the amount of fatty tissue present, sometimes a single treatment is enough.
HOW LONG DOES A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK LAST?
Destruction of the targeted fat cells is permanent. As long as you follow a healthy lifestyle and maintain - or lose, rather than gain weight - between treatment sessions and thereafter you will retain your results.
ARE THE RESULTS OF A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK INSTANT?
The process by which the active substance destroys the fat cells - and also for your body to remove them, takes a little time as your body slowly metabolises and expels the released lipids from the destroyed fat cells. Every client is different, but you can expect to start to see results 3-4 weeks after 1-2 treatments with the final effect approximately eight weeks following your treatment.
HOW LONG DOES A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK TAKE?
A non surgical tummy tuck takes around 60 minutes.
IS A NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK PAINFUL?
The procedure itself is relatively painless, although some people do experience mild discomfort. After around 15 minutes, you may experience itching, redness and mild swelling of the treated area(s) - this is because the product is starting to disrupt the fat cells so they release their contents. This is perfectly normal and expected.
WILL I EXPERIENCE SKIN LAXITY?
As it takes 3-4 weeks for the fat to slowly dissolve, the skin has time to retract slowly and skin laxity should not occur.
IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD - OR SHOULDN'T DO - PRIOR TO THE TREATMENT?
We advise you not to drink alcohol or take Ibuprofen within the preceding 24hours of your appointment, as this can increase the risk of bruising.
IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD - OR SHOULDN'T DO - AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Some clients prefer to keep the treated areas well supported following a NON SURGICAL TUMMY TUCK. Light compression garments can be purchased cheaply on the high street (we will advise of you of where to get these in clinic). Alternatively, we can supply garments (there will be a fee for this if needed).
- If you have bruised, do NOT expose the area to UV light until all bruising is gone (around 2 weeks)
- Do NOT use a sauna for 2 weeks
- Do NOT have any other treatment(s) on the area for at least 2 weeks
ANY RISKS OR SIDE-EFFECTS?
Most common risks and side effects are associated with injection of the product itself - that is, slight discomfort and a possible slight 'burning' sensation.
Any initial redness and discomfort should disappear after around 2 hours, although mild discomfort may persist for 48 hours. Swelling, tenderness, redness, and bruising in the area may persist for several days.
Bruising is frequent.
Bruises / red patches may feel 'hot'. This is normal, and isn't any cause for concern unless you are otherwise unwell.
During the next few weeks, there may be sensitivity when the treated fatty tissue is pressed.
Less than 10% of patients report transient nodules. These do not require treatment or intervention and will spontaneously resolve within one month.
EXTREMELY RARE SIDE EFFECTS
There is a theoretical risk of infection, but this is extremely rare due to the aseptic technique used during the procedure. It has never occurred.
Allergic reaction - the risk of this is less than 0.002%.
Irregularities - the risk of this is less than 0.03%.
Parasthesia / dysesthesia - the risk of this is less than 0.01%
Hyperpigmentation - the risk of this is less than 0.002%
Permanent nodules - the risk of this is less than 0.005%
Skin necrosis - the risk of this is less than 0.0076%

- You are pregnant.
- You are breastfeeding.
- You are under 18 years of age.
