Liposuction is an invasive procedure used to improve body contour by removing areas of fat that've been resistant to diet and exercise. It's important to note that lipo is not intended to significantly reduce weight, cellulite, or sagging skin. Here's how it works: Thin tubes called cannulas are inserted into the body, dislodging fat deposits that are then suctioned out. Lipo can be done on various body parts including the abdomen and waist, hips and thighs, and the cheeks, chin, and neck.

I have known Dr Volpe since 2004 when he did a breast augmentation for me. (BTW I have the best boobs you've ever seen now!) So when I asked him about liposuction I was not nervous at all.

This was my 3rd procedure with Dr. Stroup. He is very realistic about results and never suggests additional surgeries. He is very nice as well as his staff. He posts realistic pictures of results. Not just the best results he has had. Cost was very reasonable. I also had my eyebrows tattooed on.... READ MORE

My journey started many years ago. Although my weight and work-out routines fluctuated over the years, the one area that I could NEVER seem to get rid of was my belly.

I'm all booked in! I fly out to Prague on the 30th June, surgery is on the 1st July. The Clinic Surgery in the UK is extremely expensive so I looked at options abroad.
