Slimming treatment

Central Florida UroGynecology has been treating women for urinary, fecal and cosmetic gynecology problems very successfully. Since these problems are considered very sensitive and private, a patient-doctor relationship is achieved in which other problem areas are often discussed.

A lot of women have trouble with unwanted fat, mostly on the abdomen and thighs. Exercise seems to make them tighten everywhere else but their target/problem area. They are not necessarily interested in surgery, but would like to get rid of unwanted fat, often on the abdomen and thighs.

Liposuction requires some form of anesthesia and a recent study found that fat removed by liposuction comes back within a year, though not in the same place. I recently talked to a patient who had fat cells removed by liposuction from her abdomen, to have them return on her thighs. In other words if we want to get rid of unwanted fat, we need to make the fat cells slimmer, not take them out.

That is the same when we exercise, however it is difficult to target certain areas. When we exercise, the contents of the fat cells are released for energy. I just wish you could cater it to the area that you’d like, for example abdomen and thighs and not the breasts for example.

No Needles, No Surgery, No Down time

I-Lipo has won “Best Slimming treatment” award at “Les Victoires de la beauté” in France and recently was granted clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

On one of my conference trips I came across the I-Lipo® and was mesmerized. I found a procedure that is non-invasive, requires no anesthesia, has no down time and deflates the fat-cells, achieving less inches and tightening of the targeted body part.

I-Lipo® uses no needles, no surgery and has no down time, since it uses a laser which gently absorbs the individual fat cells in the targeted area.

It does not affect the blood vessels and peripheral nerves, but opens pores in the fat cell, through which the contents can escape (Figure 1). The contents of a fat cell, or adipose tissue cell are fatty acids and glycerol.

When fatty acids and glycerol are released in the interstitial space, they are collected by the lymphatic system and transported to the areas of the body where they can be metabolized into energy during exercise. In other words if you exercise right after the treatment, it will accelerate the cleaning up of the products from the disrupted fat cells.

This will leave smaller fat cells in the targeted area and you lose inches, without gaining fat cells in unwanted areas later on. Exercise works the same way, fat cells get smaller, they do not get removed.

Much More Affordable

So I-Lipo®, gives you a targeted exercise area, and it is a lot more efficient and effective for these stubborn areas like abdomen and thighs.

To see maximum results, a course of 8 treatments is recommended, per body area. These treatments should be taken twice per week at regular intervals.

Compared to surgical liposuction and other ultrasound or laser techniques I-Lipo® is much more affordable with similar results. Results can be seen immediately after treatment.

Typically a 0.8-1.6 inch (2-4 cm) loss in abdominal circumference can be achieved with every treatment, remember 8 treatments are recommended for optimal results, though it is variable.

Also studies demonstrated over a group of 20 patients, up to 6.1 inches (15.5 cm) reduced off each measurement which equates to up to 15% reduction in circumference size, regardless of actual dress size. In general you can go down 2 dress sizes.

After all the research on the method and the machine, I did not buy the machine till I had tried it myself. Now I finally got rid of my twin belly after 12 years, without any invasive treatments.

To enhance the metabolic process to clean up the fat cells, Central Florida UroGynecology has acquired the ultra I-Lipo® to enhance the lymphatic system to clean up the fatty contents.

Hard To Target Areas

Central Florida UroGynecology offers I-Lipo as a service to our patients for these hard to target areas. This will be the only treatment in our office we will also make available to men.

In the past we have had a lot of men who thought it was unfair that their wives, sisters, partners, neighbors were cured by us and they could not see Dr. Sprock.

Well that will remain the same, since she will remain focused on treating urinary and fecal problems as well as cosmetic gynecology, but men can come in for I-Lipo® now and make an appointment with one of our consultants.
