More Patients Seek Non-Invasive Alternatives to Cosmetic Surgeries Such as Liposuction or a Facelift

Trilogy Medical Center, a premier surgical center in Salt Lake City, offers CoolSculpting and Microneedling to reduce fat and diminish the signs of aging without surgery or downtime.

​Surgical body contouring options, such as liposuction or a facelift, have long been popular procedures in the United States. But surgical centers are experiencing increasing demand for non-invasive alternatives. According to Rhonda Swant, Master Aesthetician and OR technician at Trilogy Medical Center in Midvale, UT, “Many of our patients want to improve their appearance but are hesitant to undergo cosmetic surgery.” Swant lists, “anxiety over incisions, scars, anesthesia, and lengthy recovery times” as a few of the reasons her patients are trending away from the more traditional, but more invasive, route.

“Fortunately,” tells Swant, “technological innovations have recently provided patients with less invasive solutions for reducing fat or diminishing lax skin and wrinkles on the face and neck.” Swant names CoolSculpting and Microneedling as two of the most popular non-surgical treatments she performs at the Trilogy Medical Center.

CoolSculpting is a popular fat-freezing procedure. It uses precisely controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells. Unlike liposuction, which involves physically removing fat cells through a cannula, CoolSculpting employs Cryolipolysis, or cold-induced fat cell death, to destroy fat cells, which are then naturally removed from the body as waste. “Our patients love CoolSculpting. The non-surgical fat reduction treatment takes 35-minutes to perform. There are no scalpels, stitches, or invasive techniques involved. Patients are free to return to their normal activities immediately after they leave our office.”

While liposuction is better suited for reducing larger areas of unwanted fat, “CoolSculpting is ideal for men and women who live healthy lives but still struggle with isolated bulges of fat that resist diet and exercise,” explains Swant. She goes on to list belly fat, love handles, thigh fat, and double chins as some of the most popular CoolSculpting treatment areas.

For non-surgical facial rejuvenation, Swant lists Microneedling as a great option for individuals with mild to moderate wrinkles or skin laxity, who want a fresher, younger look, but do not want to undergo a facelift or neck lift. “Microneedling stimulates the body’s natural healing properties to trigger cellular renewal, improve circulation, and initiate the production of collagen,” explains Swant. “While Microneedling may sound intimidating, it is virtually pain-free and requires no downtime.”
