Candidates for SlimLipo™ Laser Body Sculpting
Every patient is unique. The best way to know which treatments are optimal for you is to see us in consultation.
You are a good candidate if you are looking get rid of localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. SlimLipo™ is ideal for body areas in which tightening of skin is important to achieve maximal improvement. Please request a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for SlimLipo™. Because traditional liposuction often results in skin irregularities, such patients are often good candidates for SlimLipo™. Laser body sculpting can gently “melt” remaining unwanted fat, smooth out dents and dimples, and further, tighten the overlying skin.

SlimLipo™ (also referred to as LifeSculpt™) body sculpting is a revolutionary treatment that uses “fat-melting” diode laser technology. Via a few tiny incisions, this patented laser gently “melts” fat that is then removed by liposuction. This superior minimally-invasive technology enables you to achieve a slimmer look with minimal downtime.
You can treat fat on almost any area of your body with laser body sculpting, but the areas that benefit the most from SlimLipo™ treatment include:
- Upper Arms
- Lower Abdomen
- Inner and Anterior (front of) Thighs
- Male Breasts
You will be pleasantly surprised by how little discomfort you’ll feel. Tumescent local anesthesia is used to completely numb the treated areas. Typically, only one treatment is needed to reach optimal results. Depending on the areas being treated, SlimLipo™ treatment may take from 2 to 4 hours. During your pre-procedure consultation, Dr. Langdon will perform an evaluation and answer any questions you may have.
The recovery time is much less than that of traditional liposuction. Many patients resume activity immediately following the procedure, and may go back to work the very next day. You may see slight bruising which may usually resolve within one week. Compression garments are worn for the first week. We will provide you with post-procedure instructions and what you should expect during your recovery period.
