ILipo - Just Warm Lazer - Diet and Exercise Got Me to Lose the Weight. Pittsburgh, PA

I'm writing this review a little late. However the experience is still fresh in my mind. I've said a earlier review, I am 37yrs old, at the time I did ILipo, I was around 33. I went in for 6 treatments , which was $900. it was a warm laser, over your belly that would sit there for 20 minutes. Then they put you on this sort of , shaker, that is suppose to shake your belly so the fat would melt faster. You're not only encouraged to do some sort of exercise. But also told during the process to stay away from sugars and certain foods, like edamame beans. I can't say 100% it didn't work. However, through my experience, and I've been on a zillion diets. If you cut sugar from your diet, you will lose weight. if you exercise you will also burn calories, which can also help you to losing weight. The diet that was suggest was very bland foods, I could barley digest them. It was almost like blanched meats and vegetables. Food was so disgusting , you would just rather not eat. I heard that, the best "health adjustments" or diets, are the ones you can stick with. I can not stick with what was suggested for ILipo diet. Bland foods. YUCK! It's true what many of other plastic surgeons have said on here. ILipo or laser Lipo of any sort is not effective. Eventually, just this past month, I did the regular what they call SAL (suction assisted lipo) which has been around since late 80's. I went to a board certified plastic surgeon that has a great deal of experience. I'm in the recovery process, and I am very happy with the results.

Dr. Dubyak and his staff are very professional. They are indeed attentive. However, I think due to how Ilipo is, where there isn't any down time. There isn't a great deal of time spend with patient. Dr. Dubyak is a chiropractor and also a dietitian. He does understand health. I just don't feel spending $1800 with very little results is economical.
