Fighting Off Your Saddlebags: Advances in Noninvasive Body Contouring

SAFELipo, an acronym for Separation, Aspiration and Fat Equalization, is a non-thermal body contouring procedure that removes pockets of body fat. Simeon Wall Jr., MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon from Shreveport, Louisiana explains SAFELipo is usually a circumferential procedure – which is to say all the way around the trunk. It is like a 360 degree shrink-wrap procedure that reduces the waist by several inches with permanent and visible results. Since it is a non-thermal procedure there is no risk of burns or long-term problems associated with thermal devices.

The common areas to have SAFELipo performed are the areas that typically collect the most fat, which include the abdomen, the flanks, back, hips, thighs, knees, neck, and breasts - including man-boobs.

SAFELipo is ideal for repeat liposuction patients –It has smooth results and no body contour deformities because of the equalized layer of fat left behind.
