While burning blubber is an admirable goal, misguided attempts at it can lead to exercise injuries, dangerously unhealthy diets, and lifelong prison sentences for attempted whale arson. Safely attain a more svelte shape with today’s Groupon: for $1,199, you get six Zerona fat-loss treatments at Dr. Pelias Cosmetic Surgery and Lifestyle Center (a $2,400 value).
Licensed surgeon Dr. Marilyn Pelias and her well-trained staff of bulge battlers shape up bodies in approximately two weeks' time with FDA-approved noninvasive Zerona treatments. Stubborn paunches will sound the warning siren when a low-level cold laser begins poking holes in chubby cell walls and dropping caped crusaders dramatically through cell skylights—creating an exit for emulsified fat. The body’s detoxification system then naturally eliminates the excreted melted lipids. Zerona treatments contour commonly treated areas such as love handles, stomachs, vestigial dewlaps, and thighs with minimal pain, swelling, or tissue damage. Men and women may expect an average loss of 3–4 inches.
Each session lasts 40 minutes and the six treatments span a 12-day period. Unlike liposuction and gastric-bypass surgery, Zerona requires no anesthesia. Patients need only lay back, relax, and listen to music, or project themselves into the line at the universe's DMV and renew their license to exist.
Marilyn Pelias, MD Cosmetic Surgery Center
Though she enjoys conversing with her patients, Dr. Marilyn Pelias's ultimate goal is to get them out her office quickly. The seasoned surgeon tries to minimize the downtime following her procedures, thus enabling clients to resume work and daily activities with little hassle. Even before her treatments begin, she puts guests at ease. During pretreatment consultations, she answers questions and describes her services thoroughly to educate her patients.
Dr. Pelias's surgical treatments range from minor changes such as brow lifts and earlobe repair all the way to tummy tucks and liposuction. With the S-Lift, a faster, simpler alternative to a traditional face-lift, she reduces the appearance of sagging skin on the neck and lower face. Nonsurgical sessions often incorporate lasers, which the doctor uses for skin resurfacing, body contouring, or the removal of body hair, spider veins, and tattoos that say I Love My Body Hair and Spider Veins. She also uses skincare products from Obagi to complement chemical peels and microdermabrasion sessions. Dr. Pelias doesn't do it all on her own, though. Aesthetician Kelly LeBlanc jumps in with the assist on all matters beauty-related, including corrective make-up, microdermabrasion, and hair-removal.
