Fat Reduction Treatments

A fan on Facebook asked: “What do you think of fat reduction treatments like Zerona and liposuction? Do you recommend them?”

I think fat reduction systems are great if you are within 10-15 lbs of your goal weight. If you are using these treatments as a weight loss solution then I don’t believe you will get the result you are looking for. We’ve tested Zerona and what I didn’t like about that treatment is that it kills the entire cell, not just the fat lipids. If you want something that is non invasive then Coolsculpting is much better. It will crystallize the fat lipids in the cells then drain through your lymphatic system while leaving the rest of the cell alive. It’s great for those places that have a pooch or small roll. As for liposuction. I like SmartLipo as you don’t have to be put under so the risk is minimized unlike regular liposuction and less expensive. The Smartlipo laser-assisted lipolysis systems are highly efficacious for disrupting fat cells and tissue tightening through coagulation as part of a liposuction procedure. Basically your fat is liquefied & then suctioned out. You have a few small incision sites. You’re awake the entire procedure but you don’t feel a thing and usually are prescribed a drug called Halcion. You don’t remember much. Research both procedures and always consult with a few different places before making a decision. I believe diet, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle are the best for weight reduction however sometimes you just can’t get rid of those last few pounds! The Center for Advanced Dermatology in Lakewood, Colorado performs both of these procedures. Thank you for your question!
