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!

Here is my advice on selecting a liposuction center:

1) determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction: are you ready psychologically, physically, and financially for the procedure? Is lipo the right surgery for you or are you better off not having the procedure or having a similar procedure, such as an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)?

2) Once you determine that you want to have the surgery, then work on deciding which center/physician you feel most comfortable with; some questions to ask yourself and the doctor are listed below

3) Ask the physician how many procedures he/she has personally done; also ask to see before and after photos of work that the surgeon personally did

4) Ask yourself, do you feel comfortable with the physician? Do you feel comfortable with the center? You should feel comfortable with both since you will be counting on both to give you the best experience possible; At our center, you are given my personal cell phone number (Dr. Gilad Segev) after the procedure, so you know that I am accessible and always willing to discuss any questions or concerns you may have

5) Affordability: obviously this procedure is not a commodity, and as such, you don’t want to shop around based solely on price; however, clearly you have to find an offer that fits your budget; my advice is find a center that offers a good value, by combining affordability with high quality and experience

6) Realistic Expectations: find a center/physician that gives you realistic expectations of what you can expect after the procedure (results-wise); remember the surgeon is not sculpting clay, but rather the human body, so if you have loose skin, it will still be loose after the surgery and if you are a size 18, you will likely not get down to a size 10 overnight (going down one dress size is more realistic after the procedure)

Good luck in your quest to find a good physician to help transform your body!

Warm Regards,

Dr. Gilad Segev

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.

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.

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
