If you have been working hard to lose weight but you don’t quite have the figure you want, you may be considering cosmetic procedures to help you lose those last few stubborn pounds. The most popular treatments of this nature include liposuction and fat freezing, but there is a more advanced, minimally invasive solution available to help you sculpt your midsection: Liposonix. Below are some details about the unique technology behind Liposonix treatment. HAIRMASTIC
Ultrasound-guided fat reduction
The gentle, virtually painless treatment of Liposonix utilizes ultrasound waves to penetrate the skin and target unwanted fat cells. There are other ultrasound fat treatments on the market, but none of them use the high-frequency ultrasound energy of Liposonix treatment. This type of ultrasound energy produces predictable results in a single hour-long treatment.
Custom treatment in the abdominal and flank areas
Liposonix is only appropriate for fat that is in the midsection—namely the abdomen and the hips or love handles. Fat can appear in a number of different patterns in these areas, but you can feel confident that Liposonix treatment will target the fat cells you don’t want, leaving behind a shapelier, smoother midsection. Your physician will have complete control over the areas targeted thanks to the versatile treatment planning capabilities of the Liposonix system.
Because Liposonix is accurately able to target deeper fat well below the skin and structural fat, it produces permanent results. Other non-surgical fat reduction treatments are only able to penetrate to the subcutaneous fat, which is naturally prone to returning over time. With Liposonix, you will see lasting results that develop over the first two months following treatment.
You can discover the amazing results of Liposonix for yourself by visiting Sue G. Decotiis, MD, in Manhattan. With Dr. Decotiis and her weight loss team, you can reach your goals for weight loss whether you have 5 or 50 pounds to lose.

If you are trying to lose weight, you may benefit from the use of dietary supplements that can boost your metabolism, curb cravings, and regulate your hormones. There is a wide array of dietary supplements that you might use based on your physician’s recommendations, and many of these may be considered nutraceuticals.
Nutraceuticals are dietary supplements that have been derived from natural food sources. They are intended to harness and concentrate the beneficial effects of certain foods to accelerate weight loss in different ways. These supplements are generally safe for use by a broad range of dieters, because they are created from natural ingredients.

The hCG diet is one of the hottest trends in weight loss today, because it can deliver amazing results in a fairly short span of time. The hCG program works through the effects of the hormone hCG, which is also known as the pregnancy hormone. When non-pregnant individuals take this hormone, it burns stored body fat so that one can remain satisfied eating only about 500 calories each day. Here is a closer look at what this program has to offer to your weight loss efforts.
Small food portions
500 calories may not sound like much, and this would not be an adequate amount of food without the use of hCG to burn body fat. However, with the constant accelerated burning of fat, 500 calories is plenty to keep you full throughout the day. These calories should be used wisely so that you get all the nutrients you need from the food you are eating. Adding a metabolic enhancer to the hCG program can curb your junk food cravings so that you make wise dietary decisions while you are taking hCG.
Rapid weight loss
One of the most unique qualities of the hCG diet is the type of fat burned on this program. hCG targets visceral fat, which is the bulky stored fat that is found in the abdomen. This weight will come off quickly, so you can see a completely new figure in as little as one month’s time. Depending on the total number of pounds you want to lose, you may need to go through multiple 20 or 40 day cycles of hCG supplements, but this will still be a faster process than most other programs can offer.
It is important to note that hCG for weight loss is different than hCG supplements sold at pharmacies and vitamin stores, so you will need to see a specialized physician to start the hCG diet. This will give you first-hand guidance to help you lose weight and maintain your new figure without sacrificing your health.
If you live in the Manhattan area and you want to get started on the hCG diet, schedule a visit with Sue G. Decotiis. Dr. Decotiis offers a personalized approach for every patient in our practice utilizing the most effective and easy weight loss solutions available today.

If you are losing weight, you should be aware of the nutritional value of the food that you consume in addition to its calorie content. Diet programs of the past relied exclusively on counting calories, but it is now known that there is more to the equation than caloric value of food. Finding a balance with nutrition with an emphasis on increasing your intake of fiber, lean protein, and good fats can do much more for your weight loss than just counting calories. Here is a closer look at what proper nutrition can contribute to your weight loss.
Fuel for Exercise
Exercise is important for managing your weight, but physical activity cannot sustain weight loss if it is not utilized in conjunction with a healthy diet. There is a common misconception that exercise is a free ticket for eating unhealthy food, but this type of trade-off will only result in weight maintenance. To truly boost your metabolism, you need to consume a balanced diet that fuels your physical activity rather than cancels it out.
One of the reasons that a food craving may be triggered is the absence of a particular nutrient in your body. For example, a craving for a hamburger may be a signal from your body to consume fat or protein. Reaching for more nutritious options such as a handful of nuts or a slice of lean turkey can turn off the craving by giving your body the nutrients it wants instead of the junk food you may be fooled into desiring.
Long-term Weight Loss Success
When you do use nutrition as a tool to guide your diet, you are more likely to keep weight off after you reach your weight loss goals. An understanding of the nutrients your body needs will give you better perspective when you are choosing the foods you eat each day.
To learn more about nutrition in terms of weight loss, schedule a consultation with Dr. Sue Decotiis in Manhattan by calling (646) 462-3046. With a comprehensive approach to healthy, physician-supervised weight loss, Dr. Decotiis can help you find weight loss success where other programs have failed.
