If years of dieting and workouts aren’t helping you reach your goals, Dr. Darm’s LipoLift could be exactly what you need. Aesthetic Medicine’s Jerry Darm, MD, and his patient Bobby stopped by to tell us more about LipoLift.
THE LIPOLIFT 3 IS ONE AND DONE WITH IMMEDIATE, PERMANENT RESULTS.
LipoLift 3 removes fat permanently in one treatment via Laser Assisted Liposuction (LAL). This procedure utilizes a laser device to gently melt the fat and then a mechanical vacuum device to suction out the fat. This technique has less downtime, faster recovery, and with the heat of the laser adds skin tightening to all the areas treated. A local infiltration with lidocaine anesthesia can be used to numb the area treated while the patient is awake.
To relax the patient a light oral sedative is optional and is used in many cases. Many manufacturers have marketed these lasers to the public including SmartLipo, SlimLipo, LipoLite, and TickleLipo to name a few. The device that we use is the SlimLipo by Palomar which we believe to be a superior device given our experience. The puncture wounds are very small, about the size of a cocktail straw, without requiring suturing and usually heal without significant scarring. The procedure is quick, comfortable and very effective at eliminating unwanted subcutaneous fat. Normally only one day is required to recover. A compression garment is then worn for 3 weeks to maximize results.
