Final Inches' board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Motoki, uses an FDA-approved laser to eliminate gym-resistant fat cells. Following an initial consultation, Liposculpture patients receive a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. The doctor then injects a paperclip-sized cannula equipped with an FDA-approved laser that melts reserves of fat. Afterward, a small stitch, band-aid, or mother's kiss closes the booboo. Most patients can return to work the next day with minimal swelling, soreness, and bruising compared to the week-long effects of traditional liposuction. Four to six weeks of donning a compression garment or of being a camel aids fluid retention to minimize swelling in treated areas.
Overseen by certified physicians, My Body Contours sculpts physiques into shapelier frames with nonsurgical, FDA-approved i-Lipo laser treatments. After a consultation recounts their medical history and favorite episode of The Twilight Zone, clients lounge on a bed as an i-Lipo therapist secures up to four warming pads to desired treatment areas, including calves, knees, thighs, buttocks, stomach, arms, or chin. Low doses of laser energy then bathe undesired flabby zones, rendering cell membranes more porous so that fat can seep through for natural lymphatic processing.
