If you had a hip replacement is the vanquish procedure safe?

Vanguish and hip replacement

The vanguish treatment uses radiofrequency energy and metal implants can be heated and cause pain. This is unlikely to happen if vanguish is done well about your "hip bone" but I would not recommend vaniquish if the area to be treated is close or over the hip.
