As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, January 2017
Dear Dr. Anne,
I decided to begin the new year with healthier lifestyle habits in place and have already started exercising and eating healthier. I have lost over 40 lbs. I feel more comfortable with my slimmer body except for my love handles. Any suggestions for firming and tightening these stubborn areas?

You have much to celebrate with a 40 lb. weight loss ... congratulations! Losing weight takes diligence and dedication and I commend you for the positive changes you have made. But sometimes, no matter how strictly you diet or exercise, you just cannot eliminate localized areas of fat, especially around the abdomen.
Body sculpting is one of the biggest, most 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 2-3 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. 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.
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 help you reach your ultimate goal of a slimmer, firmer body you can feel good about.
