Bad results from using the zerona lipo laser?

Bad results from using the zerona lipo laser?

Surgeon not machine: The results of plastic surgery procedures depends more on the skill and training of the plastic surgeon than it does on the machine. Many non plastic surgeons offer many different plastic surgery procedures and "minimally invasive" procedures (like zerona) that you would typically relate to plastic surgery, depsite minimal training. A board certified plastic surgeon is the best place to start. ...Read more

Any of you lost inches with the zerona lipo laser?

Any of you lost inches with the zerona lipo laser?

No experience yet: But nearly every laser/ noninvasive procedure result tends to fall short of what our human nature tends to make our expectations be. On the other hand, no surgical convalescence has to be endured. From my understanding of the mechanism, I would expect results to be enhanced by a concommitant low fat diet and lots of exercise-- good habits in any case. ...Read more

Are there good results from using the zerona lipo laser?

Are there good results from using the zerona lipo laser?

Some: There is a flood of new devices, technologies, techniques and all sorts of brand names that purport to remove fat without downtime, surgery, bruising, etc. The simple fact is that none of them come close to the results you can get with traditional liposuction. For fat limited to a small area, some of these techniques might work for you. If you want true sculpting see an experienced plastic surgeon. ...Read more

What are some good or bad results from using the zerona lipo laser?

Not proven: This technology has not been proven to work effectively by independent physicians. There are no side effects unless you fail to protect your eyes from any laser procedure. Some good results seen may be more related to a strict diet and exercise program recommended at the same time. Better non invasive treatments include vanquish and cool sculpting. ...Read more

Does zerona liposuction ever hurt? I've read how the laser is safe, but lasers are used for cutting! Does the procedure ever cause pain? Maybe if it's accidentally used wrong? .

Does zerona liposuction ever hurt? I've read how the laser is safe, but lasers are used for cutting! Does the procedure ever cause pain? Maybe if it's accidentally used wrong? .

Zerona not lipo: Zerona treatments are not "liposuction" and should not be called liposuction [ which is the actual removal of fat through suction cannulas]. Zerona is not really a laser.{it is a single wavelength but it not amplified} it is low energy light therapy that is directed on the skin that can give minimal fat reduction. You can't feel it & it doesn't cause pain. It is very safe but not very effective. ...Read more

How effective is zerona liposuction?

How effective is zerona liposuction?

Not: Zerona is not a form of liposuction. It is a low level laser light that promises to reduce the inches while you lie under it fully clothed. When it sounds too good to be true, it is usually not true. Unfortunately it has not lived up to its hype. ...Read more

Do I need to get zerona lipolaser after liposuction?

Not required: It is not required if you achieved the results from the vaser procedure itself. If there are other surrounding areas you want to improve it won't hurt to try the zerona. Remember though zerona does not permanently destroy fat cells and the results are not as dramatic as with vaser. ...Read more

What kind of diet works best while getting zerona liposuction?

What kind of diet works best while getting zerona liposuction?

Zerona Diet: My understanding is that all of the weight loss from zerona comes from the diet that is required while you are receiving the treatments. Consider spending the money you would spend on zerona on a dietician or personal trainer. You will likely get better results. ...Read more

Can you tell me if there is any body tried zerona liposuction?

Can you tell me if there is any body tried zerona liposuction?

Zerona: Zerona has very little clinical evidence that proves it actually works. Patients are encouraged to go on a diet after the treatment to help in the "removal" of the lasered fat, but it seems that the diet has more to do with the fat loss than the zerona laser. Consider traditional liposuction, or the noninvasive liposonix. ...Read more

Would like to know if it's necessary to get zerona lipolaser after liposuction?

No: Zerona lipolaser is never necessary, not before or after a lipo. If you didn't get good enough results with a lipo to make you happy, you will likely be best served by going back to do lipo again. On it's own Zerona has a 28% "worth it" rating on RealSelf. Com. I have never spoken to a patient who was happy with the results they got with Zerona. I do not offer this treatment at all. ...Read more

Is zerona liposuction as good as regular liposuction? I'd really like to get this procedure. I like that it doesn't involve cutting. But I'm also worried that because it's non-invasive it won't work as good..

Be Careful!: Unfortunately for the “consumer”, there are many different terms used to describe the liposuction surgical procedures. Many of these procedures are simply marketing techniques used by different practitioners. Also, unfortunately there is minimal regulation involved when it comes to who can perform these procedures and the terminology employed etc. Patients need to do their own due diligence. ...Read more

Is zerona liposuction safe if I've had lymphedema?

Safe yes. Effective?: Zerona is not liposuction, it is a combination of diet, supplements and surface laser treatment. The laser is unlikely to do anything as the wavelength does not penetrate the skin. ...Read more

Will zerona liposuction work for me? I've heard that zerona doesn't work for some people. How can I know if I'm one of them? I don't want to waste money on something that's not going to work.

Small effect: You cannot expect a surgical result by zerona. This is just for normal weight patients who have contour problems and small areas to be treated. You will need multiple long sessions and may lose an inch here and there but if you need to have more fat removed, one surgical liposuction will get you there faster and more efficiently. ...Read more

Is it safe to smoke while getting zerona liposuction? I know you're supposed to stop smoking before surgeries. Is it the same for zerona? .

Not liposuction: Zerona is not liposuction. Smoke all you want because I personally believe this non-invasive technology will only make your money (not your fat) disappear. ...Read more

Can zerona liposuction reduce men's breasts? I have "man-boobs" that i'd really like a safe and effective way to get rid of. Could zerona work? .

Not really: Zerona only works on fat not on breast gland or excessive skin. Gynecomastia is most of the time a combination of large breast glands, fat and extra skin. Acting on one component only will not give you the result that you anticipate. ...Read more

Why do I need to take a dietary supplement with zerona liposuction? My doctor says zerona works best if I take a special supplement they sell. Why? What does the supplement do? .

Save your money: Zerona is a non-invasive procedure that is supposed to eliminate or reduce fat. I have seen it and am honestly very unimpressed. I perform hundreds of liposuction procedures per year and this is really the only way (besides diet and exercise) to eliminate fat. If it seems too good to be true, it is. Sorry to all those who like to promote it as the best thing since sliced bread. ...Read more

How many zerona liposuction treatments can I have? I had six, but only saw about 1 inch change. Is it safe to continue treatments? My doctor says some people just take longer to get rid of the fat..

Expense: From a medical standpoint, there is no defined limit for zerona treatments. The major limit is financial......This treatment is very expense for the limited effects. Liposuction is a better approach for effect. If you can not tell a difference; maybe the emperor has "new clothes". Have a review and discussion with your cosmetic surgeon, then choose your options. ...Read more

What is laser liposuction?

Laser Assisted LPS: Uses certain laser frequencies to help liquify and heat the fat and subskin areas (theoretically to tighten the skin). Results are not significantly different that with syringe or low pressure machine lps. Major marketing claims better results, but clinical experience suggests that laser and ultrasound uses are not of great advantage, and usually cost more. Many use both. ...Read more

Is it ok to diet and loose weight before lipo laser?

Absolutely!: In fact, it is strongly recommended. Laser fat removal is not a substitute for dieting. It is for removal of localized areas of fat (such as around the belly button and the "love handles") that do not go away with diet and exercise. Only after you have lost all the unwanted fat you can lose by dieting should you consider laser lipo treatment. ...Read more

What is the difference between laser liposuction and laser lipolysis?

What is the difference between laser liposuction and laser lipolysis?

Laser liposuction: Laser lipolysis can be done in conjuction with tumescent aspiration liposuction (removal of the fat after laser treats the fat). Laser lipolysis is attempted through the skin without much success but has been done via cannula through the skin and introduced in the fat before tumescent liposuction. ...Read more
