Body Contouring

There are two distinct methods to remove fat. One is to destroy fat cells and the other is to empty the fat cells. The providers at the Dermatology & Laser Center believe that it is ultimately safer and better to empty a fat cell rather than to destroy it.

IF A FAT CELL IS DESTROYED (through liposuction, laser lipolysis, freezing or mechanically with ultrasound), fat that re-enters the body will find other places to go such as the arms or upper back.

IF YOU EMPTY A FAT CELL, and fat is taken back into the body, fat may return to its natural location. We are currently using Chomogenex’s iLipo to empty the fat cells.
