SlimLipo- Laser Lipolysis (NEW!)
SlimLipo is a laser body-sculpting system that slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by targeting and liquefying fat cells. What is the result? Improved body contours and proportion with minimal recovery time!
SlimLipo, or laser liposuction, is an ideal treatment for those who seek to rejuvenate certain areas of their bodies but may be intimidated by traditional liposuction.
Because SlimLipo uses a laser body-sculpting system, the procedure is less invasive than traditional liposuction, resulting in minimal recovery time and the need for only a local anesthetic prior to the procedure. In fact, following SlimLipo, some patients report being able to return to work the next day!
In addition to removing unwanted fat, SlimLipo also reduces sagging and creates a smoothly contoured surface. The procedure is ideal for several parts of the body, including abdomen, back, buttocks, jowls and neck, love handles, male chest, thighs and upper arms.
Although SlimLipo is available at almost any age, it’s an ideal procedure for younger patients that have a higher degree of skin elasticity and require a less invasive option than traditional liposuction.
- Remove excess fat deposits from your face and body that may not respond to diet and exercise
- Use a less-invasive laser that melts fat, only requires a local anesthetic and promotes a quick recovery
- Slim and reshape areas of the body, as well as reduce sagging and create a smoothly contoured surface that will improve your body’s appearance and boost self-image
Preparing for SlimLipo
You will begin the process with a doctor consultation where you will be asked many questions to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. Medical history, family history, allergies and surgery risks are a few examples of topics that will be discussed during consultation.
Lab testing, medications and reviewing local anesthesia options are also completed as part of procedure preparation.
Liposuction is a highly individualized procedure and will require evaluation of skin tone and elasticity, as well as fat density and distribution. The procedure will be conducted in our office procedure room.
How do I know I am a good candidate for SlimLipo?
We recommend that our patients be in good health and non-smokers to ensure successful healing. Ideal SlimLipo candidates are adults within 30 percent of their ideal weight and with firm, elastic skin tone and good muscle tone. SlimLipo, or any form of liposuction, is not a treatment for cellulite, obesity or a substitute for healthy eating.
What does the SlimLipo procedure entail?
A local anesthetic will be administered, during which you may feel slight discomfort. During the actual procedure, however, most patients report feeling nothing except for a mild warmth as the laser is applied.
How long will SlimLipo recovery take?
Because SlimLipo is a form of laser liposuction, recovery for most patients is quite minimal. Many patients report actually being able to return to work the following day. Your doctor may recommend wearing a compression garment over the treated area for several days.
Will my new “look” last forever?
Your new body contour should last as long as you maintain your weight and general fitness. As your body ages you may find that some firmness is lost, however the loss should be minimal.
