Fat can often cling to the midsection and refuse to let go, just like a backpack with deep-seated abandonment issues. Cut the cord with this Groupon: for $1,699, you get a consultation, SmartLipo treatment, and follow-up visits at Berman Cosmetic Surgery in Sterling (up to a $4,000 value). Treatments are good for the lower abdomen, love handles, back bra line, or neck.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. David Berman sculpts bodies with 30–120 minutes of deftly wielded laser light, melting away fat in minimally invasive surgical procedures. The Cynosure SmartLipo TriPlex employs a laser fiber inserted under the skin to rupture fat cells while gently heating the dermis to tighten and stimulate collagen growth. The small size of the fiber minimizes swelling and bruising caused by more invasive procedures, and local anesthesia keeps treated areas from feeling pain or being vulnerable during posttreatment tickle fights.
Most patients are able to return to work the day after the procedure with a provided compression garment, and the shape of the treated area can continue to improve for up to six months. Included follow-up appointments give Dr. Berman the chance to check on fat-loss permanence and continue interrupted monologues about what he ate for lunch the day of the procedure.
Though Berman Cosmetic Surgery sometimes features discounts online, today's Groupon offers the best deal available.
