Dr. Dwight Reynolds, a cosmetic surgeon in Ft. Lauderdale, FL has been performing liposuction procedures for 17 years and is familiar with multiple lipolysis methods. He likes using LipoTherme for the benefits it offers his practice and his patients. He has found LipoTherme useful in removing large volumes of fat and tightening the skin so that patients have no need for multiple surgeries. Further, he uses laser lipo as the start of a weight loss program and lifestyle change.
He says that if you're able to bring a woman who wears a size 28 down to a size 18, that woman will begin to be more sociable and begin to feel better about herself, jump starting her weight loss program. Dr. Reynolds says, "it's not the treatment of choice for obesity... but if we're able to get them down 10 dress sizes in just a couple of months, those patients become more sociable, they want to go out, they want to exercise, and they want to eat properly." A healthy diet and exercise regimen is necessary to complete any weight loss program, but a little nudge in the right direction can help.
It is important to know that the laser lipo solution is not right for everyone. Some simply do not have enough elasticity left in their skin to effectively contract, even after laser treatment. Others simply have too much skin and it will need to be removed via tummy tuck. Discuss your options and goals with your physician to work towards the best treatment course for your needs.
