I have a layer of fat around my thighs. I have tried diet and exercise, but they don't work. I have been to see 2 different doctors in the area where I live. One doctor offers Laser Liposuction (SmartLipo), and the other offers something called Radio Frequency-Assisted Lipoplasty (Lipo-Ex). They both believe their method is best.
However, I'm not sure about this. The Lipo-Ex sounds good, since it’s completely non-invasive and pain free. But, how much fat will it actually remove from my body, and how permanent is it, compared to Smart Lipo? Does it destroy the fat cells similar to liposuction? I know for sure that the SmartLipo would remove the fat from my thighs, and it’s permanent. The problem is, what's going to happen if I gain weight as I age? I was told that with any type of Liposuction technique, weight gain post-procedure makes your body take on a "pitted" or "globby" appearance. That doesn’t sound good either.
I’m not an exercise fanatic, but I’m not a couch potato. I try to eat healthy most of the time. I am within weight range for my height. Cost is not an issue. I simply need more information so that I can make an informed decision on what procedure will best suit my needs. Thanks.
