Dear Dr. Anne,
I decided to listen to my doctor's advice to help with my blood pressure, and BMI, so I started exercising, eating healthier, and I have lost over 40 lbs so far but I can't seem to lose the pooch in my lower abdomen area. I need another 5lbs. off and I am at my goal weight! I feel more energetic and ready to show the world my "almost" bikini body off this summer. Any suggestions for losing this leftover fat and does it come back if I happen to overindulge on vacation this year?
Donna G., Clemmons, NC
It definitely sounds like you are on the right track! Focusing on the new bikini body also helps with the drive, dedication and willingness to help yourself and I commend you on your goals you've set forth. However, sometimes no matter what we do, there are some areas of the body that won't change with diet or exercise without a little bit of help, especially around the abdomen.
One of the most effective treatments available for firming today is SmartLipo Triplex™. SmartLipo Triplex™ laser is ideal for treating these areas for 2 main reasons:
1. It permanently eliminates fat deposits on the lower face, neck, and body.
2. It stimulates collagen production, leaving the skin firm.
Often referred to as "Lunchtime Lipo", it is minimally invasive and takes little time for recovery, in contrast to traditional liposuction, healing is significantly accelerated. 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 happens after 3-6 months post procedure.
Call us today to schedule a consultation to discuss the various treatment options available, and let's get started on the "new you"!

Dear Dr. Anne,
I've never had legs like Taylor Swift, but they've looked nice enough for me to confidently wear shorts and skirts in spring and summer. Not this year! I can see freckles, old scars from shaving, and bursts of veins all over my legs. What can you recommend for getting my legs ready for summer?
Lisa S., Welcome, NC

Winter Skin Care
The dry air of winter, both indoor and outside, can make it difficult to keep skin from getting dry, chapped, and itchy. Harsh wind, low humidity, and indoor heating are common factors that sap moisture from the skin. This time of year, it’s especially important to protect your skin, keeping it healthy, moisturized, and youthful. The following tips will help.
Cleansing And Bathing
There is a common misconception that skin needs to be “squeaky clean.” People often spend too much time as well as use irritating soaps while bathing. Skin is healthier when all of the natural oils are not stripped by too aggressive or too frequent bathing regimens. Below are some suggestions to treat your skin kindly while at the same time effectively... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,
I decided I was going to set a healthy example for my children so started exercising, eating healthier, and I have lost over 60 lbs. I feel more comfortable in every aspect of my life except for my lovehandles. Any suggestions for firming and tightening loose skin?
Steve L., Kernersville, NC
A 60lb. weight loss is amazing! 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.
Firming is probably the biggest sought-after benefit in cosmetic surgery these days. One of the most effective treatments available for firming today is SmartLipo... Read more

Carrie M, Lewisville, NC
Good for you! Wow, 40 lbs! Losing weight takes commitment and consistency 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 and thighs.
