Zerona or Laser Assisted Liposuction After Umbilical Hernia Repair

Hi,

No worries with Zerona treatment as the laser light does not penetrate you skin, the only effects of the treatment come from the Curva niacin dietary supplement, diet, and exercise.  On the other hand, you must let your laser assisted liposuction physician know that you have had umbilical hernia repair.  Caution must be taken in the area, but laser lipo can be performed.  Unlike Zerona laser which can't reach the fat through the skin, lipo laser actually does something to fat.  Good luck and be well.
