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.

Ralph Lauren Model Filippa Fired For Being Too Fat

NEW YORK CITY, NY – After eight years working for top fashion designer, Ralph Lauren, model Filippa Hamilton was fired because her agent was informed that she could no longer fit into her employer’s clothes. If one would ask most people at random they would most likely not describe her as being “fat”, rather the word would more likely be “gorgeous.” Still, the 23 year old, 5-foot-10-inch, 120-pound Swedish model says that this was the reason why she was fired by Ralph Lauren.

Oprah & Dr. Oz Sue Acai Berry for False Claims

Dr Mehmet Oz and Oprah Winfrey

Dr Mehmet Oz and Oprah Winfrey

According to the Wall Street Journal, Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Mehmet Oz are suing 30 companies, stating that these companies are selling products under false recommendations made by the talk show host and the Columbia University Medical Center doctor.

I’m sure many of you have received emails or have seen ads which state: “As seen on Oprah”.

I myself have seen products claiming weight loss, diet secrets, nutrition, anti aging, health and beauty enhancement just to name a few that use Oprah and Dr. Oz’s names to endorse their products allegedly without any permission.

One of the biggest false claims has been from Acai Berry.

Acai berry was marketed as the answer to weight loss, sexual dysfunction and even longer life. Whenever you add Oprah’s name to a product as an endorsement, it sells like wildfire. Customers are being duped because Oprah and Dr. Oz have no affiliation with these products, yet consumers are seeing Dr Oz’s face on these products.

Plaintiffs seek to stop the unauthorized and unlawful use of Dr. Oz’s and Ms. Winfrey’s names, pictures, voices and identities,” the lawsuit reads, according to The WSJ.

The lawsuit was filed in a U.S. District Court in New York City on Wednesday and claims these companies — selling dietary supplements, anti-wrinkle creams, tooth whitening and colon cleansers — were fabricating quotes from Winfrey and Dr. Oz, in addition to falsely endorsing in the voice of the TV personalities about the brands and products, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Dr. Oz was a popular guest on the Oprah show for many years and will be debuting his own program, called “The Dr. Oz Show,” on FOX, beginning on September 14.

Jessica Simpson Talks About Her Weight & Body Image

Jessica Simpson speaks out about her weight and body image plus her recent breakup with Dallas quarterback Tony Romo in a recent Glamour magazine interview.

“It’s not fair that women look in the mirror and feel disgust because of what society has made them believe about beauty. I’ve been through it myself and understand the pressures. We’re all facing the same struggles together, whether you’re a celebrity or not.”

“When I was young, I would look at magazines and feel a lot of pressure. As a child of 12, I would write things in my journal like, ‘I’m lying here and all I can think about is that my stomach is hanging over my underwear.’ That disturbs me even today!”

While she was still with Tony Romo at the time of the interview and photo shoot, Jessica had a  sense that a breakup was on the horizon. Read Full Story

Kelly Clarkson Talks About Being Overweight

Retouched photo of Kelly Clarkson on the September 2009 Issue of Self Magazine

It is obvious that Kelly Clarkson has gained a substantial amount of weight since her days on American Idol, but that doesn’t seem to bother Kelly.

Clarkson admits that she has never been concerned with her weight, but a recent cover photo of Kelly on the September issue of Self magazine has been retouched to make Clarkson appear thinner.

Kelly speaks out stating, “Of course celebrities have cellulite!.

“When people talk about my weight, I’m like, ‘You seem to have a problem with it; I don’t. I’m fine!’,” Clarkson tells the September issue of Self.

Kelly also says, “My happy weight changes. Sometimes I eat more; sometimes I play more.”

As part of Clarkson’s exercise routine she plays golf (“I love it!”) as well as Crossfit workouts. “It’s like bootcamp!”, she states.

“You never work out more than 35 minutes, but it’s so intense … It makes me feel like G.I. Jane. It’s very empowering. I feel like I can whup ass!”

When Kelly exercises, it isn’t to lose weight. “I do it totally for my psyche,” she says. “I’m much better when those endorphins are going. It’s a release. And I also love food, so there’s a payoff!”

In regards to Kelly’s diet, “I love healthy stuff and junk an equal amount,” she tells Self magazine.

“Whatever I’m craving, I go for it.”

“For me, it’s the times when I’m not paying attention that I end up losing weight. But I’m never trying to lose weight – or gain it. I’m just being!”

4 Weight Loss Products Recalled by Young You Corp

According to the FDA, Young You Corp. of Tarzana, Calif., is recalling four of its weight loss products because they contain an undeclared drug, sibutramine.

The four recalled Young You products are:

* Slimbionic: 30 capsules per box
* One Weight Loss Pill: 30 capsules per box
* SlimDemand Capsules: 30 capsules per box
* Botanical Weight Loss: 30 capsules per box

Those products were sold online and through Young You’s Weight Loss and Rejuvenation Center in Tarzana, Calif.

Sibutramine is the active ingredient in Meridia, a prescription appetite suppressant for weight loss. But the FDA hasn’t approved sibutramine for use in Young You’s products, so the FDA says the safety and effectiveness of the recalled Young You products is “unknown.”

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 Usmagazine.com, “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.”
