Well. About four years ago the market exploded (right before it tanked) with a bunch of “liposuction lasers” that were supposed to painlessly melt fat away in under an hour–no anesthesia, no surgery. My patients all started asking me about the Smartlipo™ and the Cool Lipo™ and the Slim Lipo™, etc. They’d read online that you could just have it done in the office, no “going under,” none of that taboo “liposuction” was necessary.
I own a Smartlipo™ machine. And I think it does accomplish some things. But it is not a replacement for liposuction.
