Even with diet and exercise, some body areas remain impossibly tricky to trim, necessitating the invention of chin-size treadmills. Target tough-to-banish padding with today's Groupon: for $899, you get one SmartLipo treatment on a small body area at RDY Laser Cosmetics & Rejuvenation in Coral Gables (up to a $3,200 value). This Groupon is valid for treatment on the neck, chin, upper arms, upper or lower abdomen, waist and flanks, bra line, and inner or outer thighs.
At RDY Laser Cosmetics & Rejuvenation, board-certified physician and cosmetic-surgery pioneer Dr. Rafael Diaz-Yoserev employs his well-practiced technique and minimally invasive laser lipo procedures to help whisk away stubborn fat deposits. During a SmartLipo session, which requires only local anesthesia, a tiny laser inserted under the skin zeroes in on localized adipose tissue, targeting fat with carefully calibrated light and sarcastic barbs until the cells burst into easy-to remove liquid form. Once liquefied, the lipids are carried out of the body for permanent removal, leaving behind a slimmer, more svelte skinscape. In addition to zapping through the impenetrable force fields around unwanted fat cells, energy from the laser can coagulate blood vessels and surrounding tissue in an attempt to tighten the skin and boost collagen production. Requiring only one to two days of recovery time, the SmartLipo procedure carries far fewer risks than traditional surgery or installing a sauna in one’s cubicle.

"At RDY MD, we pride ourselves in enhancing the beauty of our patients," says Dr. Rafael Diaz-Yoserev, the clinic's board-certified cosmetic surgeon. He adds new treatments to his range of rejuvenating and slimming procedures as they become available, always aiming to boost a patient’s confidence in their looks. With an artistic hand, Dr. Diaz-Yoserev administers the newly developed 5-minute nose job with injectable fillers and tightens slack skin with high-tech lasers, rather than the wooden mallets used by other area physicians.
