Losing weight is a challenge almost as difficult as reading an entire dictionary or climbing a tree that’s covered in canola oil. Take an expert approach to tackling the task of slimming down with today's Groupon to Derma Laser Centers, valid at its Mercerville and Somerset locations. Choose between the following options:
- For $999, you get liposuction on the neck (a $2,500 value).
- For $1,499, you get liposuction on one medium area (a $4,000 value). Medium areas include upper arms, outer thighs, upper abdomen, or lower abdomen.
The highly credentialed Dr. Ayman El-Attar surgically slims physiques with minimally invasive TOPAL liposuction—Tumescent In-Office Power-Assisted Liposuction—a procedure that siphons away flab and tightens skin through laser lipolysis. Performed at Derma's medical offices, patients remain awake and catch up on belated birthday calls as a local anesthesia and adrenaline infusion numb skin and constrict fat cells. A shallow incision then allows a thin probe to vacuum fat and a laser to stimulate subcutaneous layers. Necks slenderize in about 75 minutes, and medium areas attain a more svelte form in about three hours, or approximately the same amount of time it took Michelangelo to liposuction David's love handles. Patients typically feel no pain but may experience some discomfort from the pressure and vibrations of the equipment. Downtime usually amounts to only one day off from work.
Treatment also includes a consultation, surgery date, and any necessary follow-up appointments. A wrap must be worn for three days following neck liposuction, and liposuction on medium areas requires compression garments that have to be worn for up to six weeks (not included in this Groupon). The value of today's deal may also be applied toward larger areas, including vestigial tentacles or anteater snouts.
Ideal candidates must be in good health. Not recommended for those with diabetes or heart conditions. Additional areas may be necessary. Prior to scheduling a date for surgery, all patients must call for an appointment to receive an onsite consultation and instructions for medical clearance.
Derma Laser Center
When he's not writing articles in celebrated medical journals, appearing on radio and television, or delivering lectures across the globe, Dr. Ayman El-Attar treats faces and bodies with his natural-looking cosmetic surgeries. At Derma Laser Center, which he founded in 2002, Dr. El-Attar performs numerous nonsurgical procedures that rid skin of acne, remove tattoos, and eliminate unwanted hair and veins. Alternatively, his surgical procedures transplant hair, transfer fat to different body regions, and reduce breasts without scarring.
In addition to cosmetic surgeries, Derma Laser Center's personnel pamper guests with facials that incorporate elements such as an antioxidant vitamin C firming mask, which exfoliates skin more effectively than daily orange-juice baths. He also smoothes skin with microdermabrasion and reinvigorates clients with body treatments that include lavender and an antioxidant grape-seed scrub.
