Congratulations to our team for doing such a great job! We have done over 170 laser liposuction cases over the last 5 months and have so many happy patients who have seen life-changing differences in their bodies!


It is extremely rewarding to see patients see their own before and after photos and marvel at the dramatic changes they see. Sometimes people forget what they used to look like and say “wow, I can’t believe what a difference there is.”

We look forward to many more happy clients over the holiday season!

2 Weeks After Laser Lipo (with pictures)


It’s been 2 weeks since my laser lipo of my upper abs (above navel), lower abs (below navel) and flanks (love handles) by Dr. Segev (Virginia) did my procedure at the American Lipo Centers’ clinic in Alexandria, VA.  I love my results already!  Even with my swelling and nodularity, you can see the difference.  My size 14s that were fitting perfectly before the procedure are now too big!  Size 12 is fitting well and medium bottoms look great too. 

Ok, so nodularity refers to the fluid retention in my abdomen and flank where I had the procedure done.  It feels like there’s a layer of water over my muscles.  It feels tight and little sore – but mostly like discomfort more so than pain.  You can see some of the nodularity in my pictures below, but that subsides with pressure (massage), drinking lots of fluids to flush myself out and time!

I had a lymphatic drainage massage on Friday just before I took the pictures below and it felt GREAT!  My muscles are tight with the fluid buildup but Claudia my masseuse is a dream.  She worked on the areas I had laser liposuctioned and I immediately felt a difference in how much more loose my muscles felt.  This type of massage also promotes my healing to be nice and even so that all of abdomen and my love handles will be smooth as I heal.  So I’ll be getting these massages 3 times a week for the time being to promote good results.  After 1 session, I’m pleased.  Next one is tomorrow (Monday).  I’ll keep everyone posted on how the massages help my progression towards sexy. 

But massages aside, Dr. Segev did a good job getting me even, significant fat loss!  I’ve also been doing my part doing Weight Watchers meals, lots of water and having cut out sweet drinks and unhealthy snacks.

I’ve posted side-by-side pics of my 2 week progress.

Dr. Gilad Segev Laser Liposuction Updates (American Lipo Centers/Dr. Gilad Segev):


Thank you to those who have been following us recently. We have been very busy with laser liposuction at American Lipo Centers in Virginia. My team in Alexandria Virginia and myself, Dr. Gilad Segev, have performed over 600 procedures over the last 2.5 years and have done over 110 surgeries in our Virginia office in just the last 3 months.

As you know, laser liposuction is a great way to do liposuction under local/tumescent anesthesia which gets great results, while eliminating the need for general anesthesia.

Thank you.

We just want to extend a sincere thank you to our loyal patients who have supported us and given us kind testimonials and referrals. We have done over 100 liposuction procedures in the last 3 months and have had great results.

We find it so rewarding to see patients back for their follow-up appointments and they are so happy with their results and the implications of the results (getting to buy new clothes, improved self-esteem, etc.)

So please keep the referrals coming, give us feedback on any thoughts on our practice and have a great day!

Thanks again,

Advantages of Laser liposuction over traditional liposuction include:

– skin tightening from laser as it heats up the collagen

– reduced surgical risk due to local anesthesia vs general anesthesia

– some studies suggest a faster recovery period

– often there is less cost as laser liposuction can be done in an office-based setting

Here are some very kind testimonials from patients of mine who have had laser liposuction with our practice:

Testimonials for Dr. Gilad Segev and American Lipo Centers:

“I had three kids and from those kids it gave me a huge protruding tummy. I work out on a regular basis and no matter how much I work out I could not get rid of my fat stomach and love handles. I heard about Laser Lipo on the news and decided to schedule a consultation with a doctor in Virginia and he told me that I had to lose 10 pounds. I did not stop there I continued to research and found American Lipo Centers in Alexandria Virginia. From the moment I walked in the door and met with Dr. Gilad Segev and his staff, I felt comfortable and confident about the outcome of the procedure.

The procedure went great. I could hardly believe that it was not painful. I was surprised at how good I felt and looked. My abdomen felt sore, but I felt OK. After the procedure I went out to eat and to work the next day. I still cannot believe a procedure like this really works without surgery. When I look in the mirror and at the results, I finally can see a flat stomach I am 100% satisfied with the results and the level of care I received from Dr Gilad Segev and his staff in their Virginia office. The wildest thing about this is you are awake during the procedure, there was no bruising for me, and you see the results immediately. And again, thank you to the staff and the doctor for making me have so much confidence in myself and no more low self-esteem about my stomach and if I was to do it again American Lipo Center is the place to go. Again, all thanks. ”

Dear Dr Gilad Segev and Staff,

I would be remised if I did not take a few minutes to tell you how thrilled I am with the procedure. When I entered your office, for my appointment, I was somewhat hesitant and not quite sure, if I would see the results that I was looking for, however, after meeting and talking with Dr Segev, I was put at ease. I found you to be genuine and honest and when you told me: ‘if you felt I was not a successful candidate for the procedure, you would not do it;’ after hearing those comments, I found my tension level go down.

To make my story short, a month after the procedure, I find myself delighted with the new/improved ME. I am getting a lot of looks, winks, and you know..indications that I am looking good !!!!

I would also like to thank your staff in the Alexandria Virginia office, I cannot single one person out, because I found everyone to be caring, and professional and attentive to my needs.

Thank you, thank you!

I am a very satisfied patient.

“Let me start off by saying this is first time I’ve had any cosmetic procedure done, because until now I thought Lipo was mostly for Women, but I was wrong! It works for men as well and I am proof. It’s been almost 1 week since my procedure and I am still swollen and bruised, although as the swelling subsides, I am seeing the results that I expected and wanted. So far I am very happy and I’ve even told my friends, and based on my recommendation, one friend is having his procedure done next week. I must be honest, at first I was very skeptical and nervous, but the staff at American Lipo Centers made me feel confident and “at home!”

So far, it’s been worth every penny and I am very happy with the results, the follow-up, and helpfulness of the staff and the concern of Dr Gilad Segev.

I am so excited to see what the final results will be! Look out summer, HERE I COME!”

“I wanted to have laser lipo done because my stomach was big and I tried to lose it with exercising and was not successful. I just wanted the fat removed. I had a wonderful experience at American Lipo Centers with Dr. Gilad Segev. The staff was very informative about the procedure and Dr Gilad Segev was very nice and answered all my questions. I am very, very pleased with my results. My children were able to notice a difference in my stomach.”

“The ‘pooch’ in my abdomen is gone and a natural curve is in its place; the layer of fat that made my athletic legs look less than toned, has now disappeared. I have legs that look like the fit woman I am. I didn’t have to starve myself to work off weight in targeted areas and end up losing it in other places that I wanted to keep. My diet is excellent and I exercise in moderation, but I feel great about my body again without a sense that all my efforts are in vain.”
