I have some persistent fat in my lower sides (love handles) that I would like removed. Is there an advantage to using SlimLipo over regular liposuction for this area of the body?
SlimLipo is an ideal procedure to contour your waistline. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia but, I like to supplement your anesthesia by giving you an oral Valium for relaxation during the procedure. The SlimLipo machine not only melts fat but, tightens the skin as well. The time of the procedure depends upon a number of factors to include, the number of areas that you are interested in having treated, and the amount of fat in each particular area. The more fat there is the more laser energy is required to melt the fat and the longer the procedure takes to apply that energy. A typical abdomen and flanks generally takes about 3 1/2 hours.
