Cryolipo What?

Cryolipo What?

It seems like there is always some "new" thing hitting the market of cosmetic treatments - a new injectable here, a new surgery there and an endless supply of new lotions or potions making promises to erase the signs of aging overnight. While some of these procedures, treatments and products do what they claim, some leave patients with other, unintended effects, too.

One of those procedures is "fat freezing," also known as cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that causes fat cells to die by freezing them through your skin. Sounds great, right? Well, before you schedule that appointment, we just want to mention a few things. First, although the fat cells are destroyed, the fat itself moves to a different part of your body. Also, recent studies suggest that there could be a risk associated with the treatment - a complication known as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) in which areas of hardened localized fat develop. Although the condition is treatable, it can be frustrating and leave individuals with unsightly or uneven final results.

What Is the Alternative?

Eat Right and Avoid Cellulite ... or at Least Lower the Risk of Developing It

Eat Right and Avoid Cellulite ... or at Least Lower the Risk of Developing It
Cellulite. The very word makes many of us want to run, hide or at least reach for long pants. Cellulite develops when deposits of fat poke through connective tissue, resulting in a dimpled or uneven appearance. Cellulite can happen to anyone - male, female, young, old, heavy or thin (yes, even thin people can have cellulite), and it is hard to get rid of once it develops. Learning about cellulite can equip you with strategies to get rid of it, or at least improve its appearance. One way you can help reduce your chance of developing cellulite is to eat a healthy diet.

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables. Eating more fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of developing cellulite because these foods contain high levels of antioxidants and phytonutrients that support healthy tissue and collagen production and protect cells from damage. Antioxidants can especially help because they protect against free radicals and other environmental pollutants that can damage cells and lead to cellulite formation.

Include Lean Proteins. Add lean meats to your diet, including chicken and fish, to reduce your risk of developing cellulite. Avoid meats with a lot of fat, as consuming fat and other forms of connective tissue can increase the risk of developing cellulite. Nuts and seeds are also a good source of healthy protein.

What You Should Expect When Getting Liposuction ( Smartlipo, Awake Lipo )


Gone are the days when you have to experience complicated hospital admissions for liposuction. Liposuction can now be done in the office under local anesthesia. It’s a stress-free method and you’ll only get to see a few friendly faces, which means you have privacy as well.

In this video, Dr. Bill Johnson demonstrate tumescent liposuction using a CPR dummy, and a cannula to make tiny incisions into the skin. Numbing fluid is pumped in to numb the area where the fat is being removed. A vibration-assisted tool called Tickle Lipo is then attached to a cannula and inserted into the skin to remove the fat. There is less bruising because the vibration allows the fat to be evacuated quickly.
