SLIM lipo is highly effective

I've been performing liposuction for over 20 years.  Five years ago I began performing SLIM lipo.  I was blown away how well the procedure improved my results.  I would not perform lipo without it.  Healing is around 8 weeks in the vast majority of cases.  Bruising will resolve in the first month.

If you follow your surgeon's post operative instructions, your chance of bruising should be minimal.  We recommend you use ice for 48 hours as well as wearing a compression garment to avoid complications.
