4 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo
Last year, I worked with a personal trainer to see if I could lose the extra fat around my lower abdomen and waist. I soon realized genetics played such a big factor in my fat distribution and the stubborn fat remained unfazed by my efforts. I was losing the weight but not where I wanted. I was already at my ideal weight so I decided that 2016 would be the year to enlist some extra help....
5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture
Procedure performed: UA, LA, outer thighs, waist, hips My 'why' story is pretty standard. I had just turned 40, was done with having kids, and needed/wanted to get rid of a lifetime of problematic fat deposits. I already knew my doctor and trusted him and his facilites. I did not even consider those medi-spa places. My procedure required that I have local anesthesia for safety reasons. I was...
5 out of 5 stars Active FX
Returned from my Day 1 check-up, and doctor was very happy with how everything looked. Since I had no crusting or bleeding on my neck, they decided that they didn't need to soak my neck for me. In the meantime, I still need to apply the Aquahor at least until my next check up which will be in another 3 days. It is early evening as I write this, and my neck has gotten tighter...
Smart Lipo on Upper & Lower Abdomen, Hips & Waist, Inner & Outer Thighs, Knees and Arms! - Mountain View, CA

Now I'm older and am focusing on my eating and also doing a lot more exercise, I can't...

Will smart lipo be effective for a roll-free back or would I get better results with a more intensive method of lipo? (photo)

I barely felt any pain during Cool sculpting. Does this mean I shouldn't expect much in the way of results?
Although many patients feel pain or numbness during or after CoolSculpting, it is not necessary in order to produce results. Results depend upon how... READ MORE
Is it common for Coolsculpting to make surrounding areas carry more fat, or make the untreated area clearly uneven? (Photo)
No. You shouldn’t carry more fat in surrounding areas. However, if you flatten a specific area with a cool sculpting applicator then it may appear v... READ MORE
Are there different results of cool sculpting if I get the second procedure done three weeks later as opposed to eight weeks ?
It is definitely better to wait 8 weeks to see your results before doing another treatment. It doesn’t make sense to put the applicators on a tender s... READ MORE
Doctor suggests CoolSculpting vs liposculpture-although I want predictable results and not averse to down time.
Liposuction should not have a 10% complication rate especially since you probably dont have a lot of fat. On the other hand, coolsulpting is very... READ MORE
Yes. Smart Lipo is very effective for the lower thighs. It is relatively simple to perform liposuction in this area as long as care is taken to not... READ MORE
