Austin-based Dr. Steven Zimmet Introduces New Fat Elimination Technology to the Region

Body contouring specialist brings new non-invasive technology, Liposonix®, to Austin

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dr. Steven Zimmet, one of the nation’s foremost vein and cosmetic dermatology experts, today announced the launch of Liposonix treatment in his Austin practice, Zimmet Vein and Dermatology. Dr. Zimmet is the first doctor in the region to offer Liposonix, a breakthrough technology that targets and destroys fat cells in specific problem areas using ultrasound.

“Living in Austin, we have an amazing culture that celebrates active, outdoor lifestyles, but many individuals struggle with fat deposits that aren’t disappearing from regular exercise,” Dr. Zimmet said. “I started following the development of this technology over two years ago, and I have many patients who have been waiting—quite impatiently—for a technology breakthrough like this to help them look as good as they feel.”

How does it work?

Liposonix safely delivers high intensity focused ultrasound energy that heats and destroys fat cells. Fat cells are not removed but instead metabolized, allowing the technology to work with the body’s natural processes to eliminate the fat.

This focused energy allows doctors to have greater control over the areas they are working on, leading to better results. The procedure itself is non-invasive, takes around an hour and requires little down time, making it easy to fit into anyone’s busy schedule.

"The addition of Liposonix® adds another innovative technology to our market-leading portfolio of products," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman, President and CEO of Solta Medical, the purveyor of Liposonix. "High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) represents a unique technology in the fat ablation market."

Who is it for?

With an average one inch lost from the waistline, Liposonix is the perfect procedure for a healthy patient looking to lose that last bit of fat. Best results can be seen in only eight to twelve weeks, as the body gradually eliminates the fat cells through its natural process.

“So many of my clients are in great shape, but struggle against the body’s natural instinct to store fat in areas like upper arms, midriff, love handles, or the upper back. The precision of Liposonix is what makes it an ideal treatment for these challenge areas and sets it apart from other options, many of which are more invasive and have considerable down time,” Dr. Zimmet said. “I’ve already seen over twenty patients who are happy with their Liposonix results and can bid a fond farewell to stubborn problem areas.”

How much does it cost?

Because a Liposonix treatment is custom-tailored for each individual, an initial consultation is required before undergoing treatment. During this consultation, Dr. Zimmet assesses the client’s personal fat-loss goals and determines the best course of action. The initial consultation includes:

  • Complete Medical History Review
  • Treatment Area Mapping
  • Photos to Track Results
  • Measurements

The initial consultation is free of charge. Liposonix treatment starts at $1,100 for small areas like love handles, and increases for larger areas. During the month of October, Zimmet Vein and Dermatology will offer the treatment at 20 percent off for all patients who are trying Liposonix for the first time.

Dr. Zimmet will now be the first in the region to offer both CoolSculpting and Liposonix treatments, making him the preeminent choice for patients exploring their options for body contouring in Austin and looking for personalized guidance on which fat elimination treatment will provide the optimum result for their body.
