Lipo and Weight Loss: What’s the Skinny on Liposuction?

Share

People frequently ask questions about liposuction such as, “how much weight will I lose?” The key benefit of laser lipo is the ability to finely sculpt areas but not specifically result in weight loss. The amount of fat that we remove does not impact weight significantly. But since the areas that we treated were most affected by fat, they are slimmed down.

Renuvion Revolutionizes Plastic Surgery

Share

As our bodies age, it’s only natural to lose skin tone and elasticity. This can result in a sagging appearance anywhere on the body, from the jowls to the arms to the neck to the buttocks.

The Real Scoop on Popular Lipo Treatments

Share

The tumescent liposuction technique is one of the most popular liposuction treatments, gaining in popularity thanks to the many benefits it provides. Unlike traditional liposuction, the tumescent liposuction technique uses localized anesthetic rather than general anesthesia, so patients remain conscious throughout the entire procedure. Localized anesthetic is much safer to use for patients, and causes little to no complications when compared to general anesthesia.

Tumescent vs. “Super Lipo” Techniques

Share

When liposuction first became popular in the 1980s, treatments resulted in a large amount of bleeding, bruising, swelling, and painful recovery. These side effects quickly led plastic surgeons to search for techniques that could minimize these problems for their patients. The first innovation was designed to make fat removal less traumatic and painful for the body. Providers discovered that injecting limited amounts of intravenous-like fluid to expand the “fat space” made it easier to remove stubborn fat deposits. Soon, small amounts of epinephrine (AKA adrenaline) were added to narrow blood

Treat Your Angry or Sad Face with Neurotoxins

Share

Our face is not only the first thing we notice about one another, it’s also our primary mechanism for communicating and conveying our feelings. Similarly, our face is center stage as an indicator of age, and the development of wrinkles and fine lines can make it difficult to properly convey what we’re feeling. The development of deep, fine lines around our lower face and/or forehead can make us appear permanently angry or upset, and can age us more rapidly than we’d prefer. One solution for these issues is the use

It’s commonplace in today’s world to speak frankly about our favorite or most effective cosmetic procedures in everyday conversations.

Picture this: It is the first warm and sunny summer day, you get a call from your BFF and she has invited you on a last-minute beach trip.
