Laser Lipolysis
Dr. Piccard-Ami gave me thorough information, as well as complete follow-up care. I, being a gastric-bypass patient, prior to coming to see him, as well as botched procedures prior, was relieved by my results following reconstructive breast augmentation and a tummy tuck to remove scarring from previous intestinal exploratory surgery and twice botched breast augmentation. I was relieved to find a competent and professional who has honed his craft. Dr. Piccard-Ami's work was cut out for him, as I was a difficult case, he confidently and skillfully restored my self confidence. My gratitude thus far is immesurable. You're the best doc, thank you so much! When, I have more money.... my thighs are next!!!

Absolutely wonderful. I received nothing but the best of care not only from Dr. Picard-Ami but from his whole staff. I am totally happy with the results and all the care and attention I received before, during and after the surgery.

Doctor Edwin Del Rosario, at Beverly Hills Medical Group (Philippines), seriously deformed my ears during a face-lift procedure. He purposely withheld critical decision making information from me about high risk ear deformities in a classic face-lift procedure. He surgically lowered my ears (up to 1 cm or more) without my knowledge or consent. He changed the angle of my ears without my knowledge or consent. He caused a severe bat-wing deformity of my right ear (up to 1 cm or more) due to gross incompetence. He created pointed ear lobes (half attached) instead of my naturally rounded (and detached) ear lobes due to gross incompetence. Dr. Rosario kept me under General anesthesia for over 10 hours (5 hours longer than the maximum for most plastic surgeons in the USA). I almost died in the Philippines as result! I was also forced to go to the clinic on my first return visit after surgery even after I explained to them that I was way too weak to travel. Dr. Rosario refused to come to my suite for the first visit. It took me almost 5 days to fully recover from the "effects" of General anesthesia. I also started to go into shock on the second day and got on my hands and knees and prayed that I would not die. The anesthesiologists lied to me by saying that the general anesthesia would leave my system in 3-4 hours after surgery. However, they said absolutely NOTHING about the long lasting (and very dangerous) "effects" on the body that almost killed me. I also tried on numerous occasions to get access to my pre-operation photos and medical file, for revision surgery, and Dr. Del Rosario together with Beverly Hills Medical Group staff ignored my requests and refused me over and over again. Dr. Del Rosario also refused to respond to any questions from peer reviewed journals regarding the high rate of ear deformities in a face lift procedure. Dr. Del Rosario and Beverley Hills Medical Group (Philippines) deceived me, lied to me, exploited me, harmed me, turned their back on me and took my hard earned money! Dr. Del Rosario together with Beverly Hills Medical Group (Philippines) is a VERY dangerous organization that ONLY cares about exploiting medical tourists for money. If you value your life, your health and your hard earned money STAY AWAY from Beverly Hills Medical Group (Philippines)! Beverley Hills Medical Group (Philippines) is an extremely evil organization. I am VERY lucky to be alive and back home! This organization is extremely corrupt! PLEASE, do NOT make the same mistake I made! (Note to Visit and Care Staff: The above is a revised version.)

What is Laser Lypolysis?

Laser Lipolysis (laserlipolisi) commonly referred to as smartlipo, is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, which removes stubborn fat deposits in specific regions in the body through a gradual process. The process entails liquefying the fat in the body, allowing it to drain throughout the course of a few weeks to a month.

 

A Good Candidate for Laser Lypolysis

Good candidates are healthy, non-smoking individuals who have difficulty getting rid of fat deposits in specific regions of the body. If you are more than 20 pounds overweight, liposuction is not a solution for you. It is important that you notify your doctor if you have had any major operations in the past.

 

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo this procedure. The minimum age requirement for this procedure should be 18 years of age.

 

Laser Lypolysis Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your doctor, who will discuss the method(s) that will be used to achieve the best results. Small incisions will be made around the regions that will be concentrated on. A cannula, or tube-like instrument, will be inserted, and fat will be liquefied with a small laser located inside the cannula.

 

Once the fat is loosened and liquefied, it will drain out of the small incisions throughout the course of a few weeks. This procedure is less invasive because fat is not vacuumed out, like the traditional liposuction.

 

Average Duration of the Laser Lipolysis Treatment: approximately 2 hours, yet this will depend on how much fat is to be removed, and the locations in the body from which they are to be removed.
