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.
