Research: Top Liposuction Alternatives 2016
For fourth successive year we are conducting (annual) researches on the top liposuction techniques and top liposuction alternatives (for the results of the studies conducted on 2013, 2014 and 2015 click here, here & here).
The reason for these researches mainly lies in the huge and rapidly increasing interest for the majority of men and women across the Western world in having a toned and slender figure. Conventional liposuction methods have gone a long way with making that dream come true in a less invasive manner, yet by no means they can be considered an undemanding and totally painless procedure. Therefore, the drawbacks and side effects involved in traditional liposuction sometimes deter many people from opting for a procedure of that kind. That’s where some very decent liposuction alternative options step in, offering a comparable contouring and slimming-down result with only a fraction of the disturbance provoked by liposuction. So, below are presented the top 5 Liposuction Alternatives available in the market.
Most Popular Techniques
Getting to evaluate Liposuction Alternatives, one needs to adopt highly objective and unbiased methods. In that spirit, we used the most credible online tools: Google Trends and Google Keywords Planner, in our effort to locate the most popular liposuction alternatives, in order to make it possible to compare these most popular techniques. According to the these tools, the most popular Liposuction Alternatives during the period February 2015-January 2016 were:

Our Evaluation System
The first step of our evaluation on those Liposuction Alternatives involves rounding up their pros and cons. Then, of equal importance is the gathering of a substantial number of comments and taking into account the actual response those techniques have received by their clients during the last 12 months. RealSelf.com was where we mostly turned to for this task, as the amount of reviews and testimonials provided there is invaluable, abundant and reliable. Finally, there is the task of allocating all those elements in the following units: Safety, consumers’ opinion, effectiveness, pricing and skin tightening abilities; still, not all of these fields are evenly important, therefore exceptional performance in the first three of them is awarded with a maximum of 10 points, while the other two grant fewer points.
Our evaluation system works as detailed below:
- Side Effects: 10 points are given to the Liposuction Alternatives which bring about no adverse reactions whatsoever, as opposed to 0 points for methods that tend to set off numerous and serious side effects
- General Consumer Feedback: 10 points are awarded for the methods that bask in their users’ favor, while only 2 are given to the method that has received the most unsympathetic reviews
- Efficiency: Highly persuasive results for the patient mete out 10 points to that method; contrarily, a method which failed to deliver any results receives a meager 2 points
- Cost: Competitively priced methods can be awarded up to 5 points, but absurdly expensive options receive a mere 1 point
- Skin Tightening: Some techniques also carry skin-tightening effects, winning up to an extra 3 points for that; if there is no skin tightening at all, then no points are given

5th: Thermage 15 points
Well, the newest entrance in our 2016 Liposuction Alternatives comparison (Thermage) may have not made any noticeable impression, but it was the wondrous i Lipo that managed to get straight to the top, scoring a hefty 26 points along with Endermologie! This is quite impressive, because during 2015 the testimonials on i-Lipo reached a phenomenal 92% satisfaction rate. Probably improvements implemented to the device have enabled i Lipo to achieve such a tremendous performance; in any case, customers’ reviews are telling: i Lipo is among the top choices for this year. Apart from Endermologie, CoolSculpting bagged more or less a similar amount of points as last year; overall, its forth place may seem as a slight drop-off, but potential users should take into account that it is the only method of the group that comes with a colossal amount of feedback, and that makes the conclusion drawn even more solid. As we mentioned in the beginning of this article its important to notice the amazing boost of Coolsculpting’s popularity during the last month and probably this boost is happening for a reason that will bring it back to the no1 position. Finally, VelaShape made a remarkable improvement compared to last year, clinching a respectable 24 points in overall ranking (comparing to the 20 points it reached last year).
Apparently, people considering a potential go at one of our 2016 Liposuction Alternatives may argue that an evaluation lacking real interviews by patients may not be totally trustworthy. But rest assured: The sizable number of testimonials taken into consideration provide an honest depiction of the current status in the field of Liposuction Alternatives, with the possible exception of the absence of some other potent methods due to their lack of availability at the time of gathering our data. In any case, the consistent and unprejudiced view that Lipoadvisor is able to offer vouches for the credibility of this particular evaluation.
