Free Fat Grafting with Liposuction: You Get Less Than You Pay for

Get Rid of Saddlebags

For some women, saddlebags are a constant source of self-consciousness. Sometimes called a saddlebag deformity, women with this condition store a disproportionate amount of fat below their hips on their outer thighs. This prevents them from having a smoothly defined hourglass figure where the leg begins to taper after the hips. In many clothes, the […]

An FDA Campaign Against Fat-Melting Injections

The FDA has begun a crack-down on a procedure offered by some plastic surgeons called Lipodissolve. It is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. A chemical is injected to dissolve fatty tissue in relatively small areas, usually in the arms, legs or abdomen – love handles, saddle bags and muffin tops, for example. These injections are […]

A New Alternative to Liposuction

When we gain weight, our fat cells are increasing in size to hold the extra fat. For the most part, we do not grow any new fat cells once we are adult. A new cosmetic surgery treatment is based on this fact. If there is increased fat cell size in the subcutaneous fat layer (just […]
