Dear Dr. Anne,

Each year at this time, I dread trying on bathing suits to get ready for summer. No matter how healthy I eat, or how hard I work out, I still have stubborn areas that make me want to pack up my bikini and hide. Is there any treament you can provide that will firm and tighten these stubborn areas? Please help me.

Dear Sheila,

You're not alone. After covering up with sweaters and pretty leggings all winter, a lot of people like yourself dread the idea of putting on a bathing suit. And sometimes, no matter how strictly you diet and exercise, you just cannot eliminate localized areas of fat, especially around the abdomen, hips and thighs.

Body sculpting is one the biggest sought-after procedures in cosmetic surgery these days. Two of the most effective treatment options available for body sculpting today are SmartLipo Triplex and SculpSure.

SmartLipo Triplex is a minimally invasive procedure where I use a laser and actually go under the skin beneath the dermis to melt fat and remove it the same day and to tighten the skin. My patients who have small areas to be treated are able to return to normal activities, such as work, in 3-4 days. Swelling is gone within a few weeks, and optimal tightening begins working in as little as 3-6 months and takes 18 months to fully evolve.

We also offer SculpSure which is a completely non invasive procedure that only takes 25 minutes. The fat cells are disrupted so they can no longer hold fat. Over time, the disrupted fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as 6 weeks, and optimal results seen in 12 weeks.

SmartLipo Triplex and SculpSure are both excellent treatments options for stubborn areas such as the love handles.

So let's get started. Call today to schedule a consultation. I would love to customize a treatment plan that's right for you and get you on your way to having the bikini body you can feel good about.
