i found this on a doctor's website about micro lipo
"Micro-Lipo is an innovative liposuction technique performed only by Dr. Schafer. Combining several important and ground-breaking methods, Micro-Lipo provides excellent results with minimum trauma to the body which means faster and more pleasant healing periods. Micro-Lipo combines the Tumescent Technique, Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction, micro cannulas and the Rapid Recovery Method, pioneered and developed by Dr. Schafer. And now Dr. Schafer is using Erchonia and Polaris lasers for optimal smoothing and tightening of the skin and underlying tissues."
