Laser Liposuction Doctor Uses Zerona Laser Scanner to Successfully Remove Fat

Thomas E. Young, M.D.

Thomas E. Young, M.D.

Laser liposuction and SmartLipo expert, Dr. Thomas E. Young of Young Medical Spa, has had  successful results using  Zerona to remove fat.

The Zerona Erchonia Laser Scanner uses five low level lasers to painlessly liquefy the fat cells in the abdomen and thighs without making a single incision.

“It will pass through the skin and hit the fat cell…it makes the fat cell open up a little bit,” said Dr. Thomas E. Young. “That lets the fat out and the body takes that liquid fat that came out of the fat cell and clears it out.”

Since the laser just “opens up” cells, Dr. Young says patients must undergo a post-op regimen that includes vitamins, increased water consumption, cardio exercise and a reduced-fat diet to get the best results.

Dr. Young goes on to say that the procedure is only 80 percent effective. But Daneen Newsome is thrilled with her results. She went from a size 4 to a size 2 after undergoing the procedure.

“There is work on your end that you have to do, but if you do it, it’s well worth it,” Newsome said.

Still, not everyone is convinced. Dr. Eric Bernstein says he’s intrigued by the laser treatment, but that more research on their effectiveness needs to be done.

“I have yet to see a convincing peer reviewed controlled study demonstrating that it’s effective,” he said.

Zerona’s manufacturer says the treatment results in an average loss of 3.6 inches from the legs or buttocks. It costs about $2,500 for six sessions.

Thomas E. Young, MD is the owner and operator of Young Medical Spa located in the beautiful Saucon Valley area of the Lehigh Valley near Allentown Pennsylvania. contributed to this story.

Did Kim Kardashian’s Sister Khloe Have Liposuction?

khloe weight lossKhloe Kardashian  has recently lost 20 pounds and looks fanatastic! However we are wondering  did she have liposuction to help her along?

Khloe says that she lost the 20 pounds by doing cardio exercises at least 30 minute a day and by watching what she eats.

Khloe recently told, “I try to do just 30 minutes of cardio, mandatory.”

“I eat whatever I want until noon. Then from noon on, I watch what I eat.”

The Kardashian family which includes Kim Kim Kardashian and Bruce Jenner have been very open about their plastic surgery in the past, so liposuction or laser liposuction (laser lipo) wouldn’t be out of the question. It could very well be that Khloe’s weight loss may be a result of both exercise and liposuction.

New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “It is hard to tell if Khloe Kardashian has slimed down due to natural weight loss or to liposuction. However, in either case, she needs to maintain good nutrition and have an aggressive exercise regimen to keep from putting the weight back on.”

Smart Lipo – Using Laser Lipo For Fat Removal

smartlipoA unique procedure called Smart Lipo, a brand name for laser lipo, is different when compared to other fat removal procedures on the market today. The procedure is actually very simple and uses state of the art laser technology. Smart Lipo, also known as laser lipo, liquefies fat deposits which are then removed through a tiny pin point incision made by the cosmetic surgeon. A local anesthetic is used in the area. Smart Lipo is an FDA approved procedure that resuts in minimal bruising or swelling.

The patient must be 18 years of age or older and in good health in order to have the procedure. This type of procedure is not recommended for patients that are twenty five pounds or more over their ideal BMI (body mass index). Smart Lipo is aimed at people who have tried every diet under the sun, have exercised till they have dropped and still find it hard to reduce fat on those stubborn areas. Does this sound like you? If so then this procedure is perfect for you. Afterwards, it is recommended that you enhance the results by continuing your diet and exercise routine.

So where do you start? The answer is to visit, a Smart Lipo doctor and information site where one can search for laser lipo information and doctors. Here you can visit the doctor profile pages which link to their websites. After you find your nearest doctor, the next step is to set up a consultation. The consultation will give you the chance to find out exactly how you can be helped and will give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the procedure.

After the procedure, you will usually wait one or two days before you can go back to living your life normally. Depending on your doctor’s instructions, the bandages only have to be kept on for a week or two. You will also find that your skin begins to tighten around the areas that are treated (usually 6 weeks after treatment) unlike traditional liposuction where your skin can remain lax due to large volumes of fat being sucked out. With Smart Lipo this does not happen, because when liquidizing the fatty deposits the laser promotes the skin to repair itself, thus making the skin tighter.

Smartlipo costs are very competitive and average from around $2,000 for small areas to around $5,000 for larger areas. Combinations of areas are usually calculated at a slight discount. Compared to liposuction, Smart Lipo prices are generally thirty percent less than traditional liposuction and in some cases the results may be better.

Mesotherapy An Effective Cellulite Treatment (Mesotherapy Pictures)

Consumers are as interested as ever in using non surgical cosmetic procedures to improve their looks and self esteem. But with the rising cost of medical procedures, and the inability of most insurance companies to cover treatment, those who seek cosmetic procedures are turning from cosmetic surgery to alternative treaments  in order to achieve the results they seek. One popular treatment that has many people raving is known as mesotherapy.  The procedure has been around since the 1950s, but has grown most in popularity during the last decade. It is most often used to aid in weight loss, fat loss, cellulite treatment, spot treatment and to tighten aging skin, especially in the face, neck and hands.  Some people have even used mesotherapy to treat hair loss and to reduce the appearance of scars. 

Mesotherapy falls into the specific category called homotoxicology, in which sickness is considered to be a natural defense against homotoxins, or toxic substances that invade the body in an attempt at ruining the body’s natural balance. With mesotherapy, an assortment of substances is injected into the mesoderm, the layer of skin just under the outer skin layer. These substances may include homeopathic medications, natural herbs, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. In the past several years, many new approaches to mesotherapy have been developed. These include popular programs such as MesoGlow, lipodissolve and MesoBoost.  While they all differ slightly in approach, each type of treatment still follows the main principles of mesotherapy. 

Some mesotherapists use special equipment called mesotherapy injection guns. They are not nearly as frightening as the name may imply. Injection guns are handheld electric tools that utilize a system of tubes and needles. On one end of the injection gun is a sterilized needle that is attached to a tube filled with a solution of various vitamins, minerals and medications located at the other end of the injection gun. 

 Mesotherapy side effects include bruising at the site of injection and occasional nausea or headaches. Some people will feel ill during or after treatment in the same way that one may feel sick when getting a tattoo. In fact, the procedures are very similar, and mesotherapy is usually safer than receiving a tattoo since its practitioners are all licensed medical professionals. Other than bruising and the occasional nausea, there are usually minimal side effects to the treatment. 

One important thing to keep in mind for those interested in using mesotherapy to eliminate fat: like any other treatment, fat loss will only have a lasting affect if the patient follows a healthy diet and exercise routine. Many people pay large sums of money for mesotherapy or other cosmetic treatments, expecting a miraculous return to their youthful figure without putting forth any effort. They are inevitably disappointed in the end. Mesotherapy does aid in reducing fat, but does not act as a shield against gaining fat in the future. This is why a mesotherapist will always advise patients seeking fat loss to begin eating healthier and to spend at least 5 hours a week exercising. These routines will substantially increase the benefits of mesotherapy.

 Mesotherapy can be a very beneficial and inexpensive form of treatment for a host of ailments. Those interested should spend time researching the possible benefits and drawbacks of mesotherapy before making a decision and always consult with a qualified physician before undergoing any treatment.

Lipodissolve – An Alternative to Liposuction

lipo dissolveMany patients are turning to lipodissolve as an alternative to liposuction and other cosmetic surgery procedures. Lipodissolve as a fat removal treatment can accomplish something that many people have been trying to do for years. Women and men all over the world look into the mirror each day and wish they had some “magical” way to solve their weight issues. Lipodissolve has been compared to other successful treatments on the market but this particular treatment when administered properly, has been shown to have a higher success rate where results can last longer. The treatment involves a series of injections to the problem area to remove fat deposits. Most people when they wish to lose weight “magically” go to their cosmetic surgeon for liposuction, excess skin reductions, gastric bands etc. These types of treatments are invasive and require general anesthesia, which can pose a high risk for the patient. Lipodissolve may be the answer for some who do not wish to undergo surgery. The process is simple and quick to perform. You can be in and out during your lunch break at work! Imagine being able to drop a dress size over a very short amount of time, and all in your lunch hour! What an amazing thought! LipoDissolve seems to have achieved these results for many who have received this treatment.

For best results the treatment is usually completed in stages. Treatments are often spaced out over a period of time, with each treatment being given every 2 weeks. The treatments can be helpful if you have problems with your arms, legs, bottom, stomach and love handles. You may experience some slight bruising after each treatment but this is normal and is usually not a problem as these will fade over time. The amount of inches you lose in the treated areas differs from person to person but the results can be quite dramatic.

Lipodissolve compared to other similar treatments on the market is very competitive in cost. Each person who undergoes the treatment receives a personalized plan created for them by their doctor or specialist. The average price is approximately ½ the cost of liposuction and, like other cosmetic procedures, many doctors and specialists will offer credit options to help pay for your treatments.

Many lipo dissolve specialists are so confident of their results that some will actually offer a thirty day, money back guarantee if you do not see any results (measurable ones) after the full amount of treatments have been given. Again, this depends on the doctor or clinic offering the procedure.

Always consult with a lipodissolve doctor or expert before undergoing this procedure. It is important that you know all you know risks and side effects before undergoing any lipodissolve treatement.

Smartlipo – How Smart Is This Laser Liposuction Procedure?

Smart Lipo, a brand name for laser liposuction, has become an extremely popular procedure that surgeons now use in their arsenal of fat removal techniques. Smartlipo has become popular among patients because it allows the surgeon to precisely sculpt the body. Smart Lipo is a minimally invasive laser lipo procedure which is almost always performed under local anesthesia, resulting in less bruising and minimal downtime following surgery. Smartlipo combines the use of the fiberoptic laser and small liposuction cannulas. Because the Smartlipo procedure is performed under local anesthesia, the patient can return to work and assume their daily activities usually the next day.

SmartLipo uses specialized laser technology to permanently remove fat cells in order to contour and reshape areas of the body including areas such as the abdomen, love handles, backs, thighs, hips, knees, arms, neck, and chin.

Smartlipo uses a very small fiberoptic laser, which leaves tiny, virtually invisible scars after surgery. Smartlipo also tightens the skin in addition to melting fat and it is the skin tightening that is what distinguishes Smartlipo from other traditional liposuction methods. When using traditional liposuction, removal of large amounts of fat can result in sagging skin. With Smartlipo, the specific laser wavelengths of light coagulate the blood vessels, so there is minimal bruising and swelling resulting in less risks for the patient and faster recovery time. Using Smartlipo also allows the skin to tighten after the excess fat is removed. The tightening will occur gradually over time, usually over 4- 6 weeks, resulting in smoother skin and a more sculpted appearance.

Many other features distinguish SmartLipo from traditional liposuction. These features include the patients comfort, the number of of visits required, recovery time and the amount of scarring and bruising. Traditional liposuction requires about seven days of down time after the procedure, uses general anesthesia which carries a high risk to the patient, the wearing of a compression garment for six weeks, stitches and can require additional surgery. SmartLipo, as opposed to traditional liposuction, uses local anesthesia,  requres only one to two days of down time, leaves virtually no scarring, requires no stitches and only two weeks for compression garments.

Please note that although SmartLipo is highly effective, it is only appropriate for patients wishing to lose small amounts of fat, usually not more than 8 pounds. If you have larger amounts of fat that need to be removed, SmartLipo will not provide the desired result you may be looking for. In cases where large amounts of fat need to be removed, traditional liposuction or an alternative method for weight loss is required.

How much does SmartLipo Cost? The average Smartlipo cost is usually in the range of $2,500 to $5,000 per area depending on the surgeon and can usually be performed in one office visit.

SmartLipo is not for everyone and only a consultation with a qualified surgeon can help you decide whether SmartLipo is right for you.

Mesotherapy – How to Get Rid of Belly Fat

Most everyone would like an attractive slim and trim figure despite their age or gender. Nevertheless, one’s eating habits combined with stress and tension caused by a modern hectic lifestyle leads to the deposition of unwanted body fat. This not only increases one’s body weight but also spoils the shape of the body. The fat is deposited mostly in the lower parts of the body – the abdomen area, buttocks and thighs. The round and protruded belly gives an awkward look to one’s appearance. There are many types of treatments available for getting rid of the unwanted belly fat but mesotherapy is one of the best and fastest ways to get rid of it and regain an attractive appearance.

Mesotherapy treatment is the safest way of getting rid of belly fat because this treatment does not require any kind of surgical process. Moreover, mesotherapy treatment involves reduction of fat with the help of natural products so there is no fear of side effects. If you are suffering from the problem of belly fat and want to get rid of it without undergoing any type of surgery or disturbing your daily routine then the best option is to choose mesotherapy as you will be able to continue with your daily lifestyle while the treatment is going on. Mesotherapy treatment originated in France and has become so popular that now people all over the world prefer this treatment to get rid of the most common problem that is, belly fat.

In mesotherapy, an injection containing homeopathic medicines or medicines prepared from extracts of plants, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids injected in the mesoderm or the fatty layer under the skin. This helps to eradicate the fat deposits in a natural way. Mesotherapy also acts on the fiber of the connective tissues that have the tendency of trapping the fat cells and forming cellulite. Thus, there is more benefit than the simple procedure of fat reduction in mesotherapy. It not only melts the fat with the help of the injected medicines but also provides permanent results in the way of cellulite reduction. Mesotherapy is a painless process of quickly reducing belly fat, and patients should notice continued fat reduction after undergoing the second or third treatment.

Mesotherapy does not require recovery time. Injections are administered with local anesthesia and you will be able to continue with your daily routine from the moment you get the injections and come out of the treatment centre. Also, unlike other fat removal procedures, the natural fat decreasing process in mesotherapy does not leave pockets where fat can accumulate at later stages when the treatment period ends. Mesotherapy is the most affordable, time saving, and painless way of eliminating belly fat without having the ugly scars or marks on the skin normally left behind in other types of surgical methods.
