If it's anything like Thermage, avoid it like the plague. Sadly, many people go through these types of procedures because they cannot afford the true surgery they need. Combine unrealistic expectations and doctor's empty promises of perfection and the end result is an unhappy patient ... who will need the real surgery they did from the start.

Well it's about time! There are so many ads for fat dissolving injections and I don't understand why... they haven't been proven! I guess people will spend their money on anything if they're told it works in ads (but not me )

Absolutely!!! The problem is people in today's society have the curse of desperately seeking instant gratification (not Susan ha! ), and want the quick fix.

Lipo is only for refining, and not for removing substantial amounts of fat. What angers me is how many surgeons are currently removing more fat with lipo than the regulations approve, and the results are unhappy patients, who have a Big Mac in one hand and are talking to the surgeon they are dissatisfied with in the other. My advice? Speakerphone! Just kidding!

People will do anything to lose weight ... except have a healthy diet and exercise. So sad.
