Lipotron and liposuction

Lipotron is not FDA-approved, so you will not find surgeons on this site promoting its use. Some modalities are not FDA-approved because they are not YET approved, and others are not approved because they should NOT be approved. Hard to know which category something new like Lipotron will ultimately fit into.

I recommend you consult with a well-regarded, board certified plastic surgeon in the south Florida area to see what your options are. Obviously, there are a lot of offices (ours included) that can offer you complementary consultations to help you explore your goals. Make sure the surgeon is certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Also, I recommend going to physician-owned and -operated plastic surgery practices.

Lioptron or liposuction

The jury is still out on Lipotron as an effective technique for removing or reducing fat, and liposuction is the better option. Radio frequency heating of fat to 'melt' the fat away is not yet FDA approved as a safe and effective therapy. Best of wait for more data before your invest.

Best of luck,

Does Lipotron Really Work?

Lipotron has not been approved yet by the FDA for fat dissolution in the US.

I suggest you wait a bit longer for further  hard data  and approval in our country.
