SlimLipo™ offers you the benefits of traditional liposuction, but without the need for general anesthesia and extensive downtime. Traditional liposuction can cause trauma to your tissues as the fat is removed, causing you more discomfort during the recovery period. SlimLipo™ uses an FDA-approved laser that “melts” unwanted fat efficiently on your abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and hips.
Benefits of SlimLipo from Marvel Cosmetic Surgery
Your SlimLipo™ procedure will not only remove fat, but the laser energy has the unique benefit of tightening your skin. The result is a smooth, contoured body and beautiful, healthy skin.
SlimLipo™ is a minimally-invasive procedure that offers a faster recovery period than traditional liposuction. You can return to your normal activities in as little as one day after your procedure. Dr. Jeffrey Marvel has many patients in Nashville and Middle Tennessee, who are uncomfortable with general anesthesia, especially for cosmetic procedures. SlimLipo™ only requires the use of local anesthesia to help you remain comfortable during the procedure.
SlimLipo for Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a condition that causes male breast enlargement. Men who suffer from this condition live with embarrassment and are often too self-conscious to wear certain clothing. SlimLipo™ is effective in treating the fatty deposits that cause enlarged male breasts, giving you a more contoured chest.
Dr. Marvel may not recommend SlimLipo™ to patients who are in poor physical condition, including those who are not within 25 pounds of their ideal weight. SlimLipo™ is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or patients who are obese, taking certain medications or have been diagnosed with some chronic medical conditions.
