4 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Smart Lipo on Stubborn Fat from Waist/Abdomen - 29 Yr 5'3 112 Pounds - Mountain View, CA

Last year, I worked with a personal trainer to see if I could lose the extra fat around my lower abdomen and waist.

5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

Tumescent Liposculpture Performed Feb 2009

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...

Active FX on Neck - Mountain View, CA

Smart Lipo on Upper & Lower Abdomen, Hips & Waist, Inner & Outer Thighs, Knees and Arms! - Mountain View, CA

I'm a 36 year old, fast approaching 37. I've been up at 190+ pounds and am now, after too many years to mention, down to 171 pounds where I have stayed for the longest time. I've not managed to shift the weight. I traveled a lot for work and didn't focus on my health and wore spank pretty much everyday. Now I'm older and am focusing on my eating and also doing a lot more exercise, I can't...
