SlimLipo Can Also Treat Excessive Underarm Sweating!
Recently, the doctors at Palomar Medical had a breakthrough discovery for the treatment of excessive underarm sweating, also know as axiliary hyperhidrosis. Through the use of the SlimLipo laser lipolysis, the sweat glands in the underarm pit area are abolished. And since the underarm sweat glands reside in the axillary fat cells, the SlimLipo is a very successful and effective ablative treatment.
Traditionally, doctors have treated excessive armpit sweat through the use of Botox. Although this is an effective method, the procedure is not permanent and can prove to be costly if needing treatments every six months or so. The SlimLipo laser is not only cost-effective but can have more permanent results than Botox treatments for underarm perspiration. Schedule your consultation for an axillary hyperhidrosis treatment through SlimLipo.

Answers to Common Questions About SlimLipo.
Is SlimLipo (LifeSculpt) different from traditional liposuction?
Yes, very different. Traditional liposuction leaves larger scars, causes more bleeding and more post-treatment for pain, and requires longer healing times than the SlimLipo (LifeSculpt). Also, traditional liposuction physically breaks up and suctions out intact fat cells, while the SlimLipo (LifeSculpt) efficiently melts and liquefies fat, which is then gently removed from your body. Answered simply: SlimLipo (LifeSculpt) is easier on your body than the traditional liposuction method.

With SlimLipo’s superior technology, you’ll experience very little bruising if any and little to no downtime. Get ready to show off your new slimmer look in no time!

SlimLipo Fees and Recovery Times
SlimLipo for the Neck Area
Patients who elect to have SlimLipo performed on or around their neck are typically looking to have fat removed or a bit of “lifting” done. SlimLipo is very suited for treatment of sensitive ares and also tightens the skin. The cost for SlimLipo on the neck ranges between $1,900 to $2,500 with only one to two days downtime. A traditional surgical neck lift by comparison is often double the cost and requires a few weeks of recovery time.
SlimLipo for the Tummy or Abdomen.
SlimLipo, also known as LifeSculpt, on the abdomen region is much less invasive, results in little to no pain and offers a greatly reduced recovery time. Treatment fees range between $3,000 and $4,000 for the tummy or abdomen area only.
SlimLipo for the Waist and Back
SlimLipo performed on the waist and back areas, ranges between $4,500 to $6,000 depending on the patient. This is the total cost and includes anesthesia, operating room, laser fee, one Velashape treatment and all post operative follow up appointments as required. Most patients return to work in 2 days and resume vigorous physical activities soon there after.
SlimLipo for the Thighs
SlimLipo of thighs ranges between $3,500 to $4,800 depending on the patient.
Save by Combining Multiple Areas of Treatment
Combining procedures is always less expensive since it is more efficient both for the patient and for the surgery center. For example, a patient considering SlimLipo of the abdomen, thighs and neck may have all of these area treated together for a fee of between $6,000 to $7,000. Whereas treatment for the same areas seperately or at different times would be much greater as indicated above.
Compare the costs of Traditional Liposuction Vs. SlimLipo
Traditional liposuction and other techniques (Smart Lipo, Vaser, etc.) are more expensive because they require general anesthesia by a licensed Anesthesiologist. Add that there is a lengthy period of recovery (more down time from work and physical activities), And there is a greater potential of major complications with traditional Lipo”suction” which can result in infection and other expenses not covered by insurance. SlimLipo is minimally invasive, performed under local anesthesia. It also offers the additional benefit of tightening the skin in the treated areas, creates little or no bruising with a very short if any recovery period. Add to that Dr. Obi’s on-site ambulatory surgical center; The Samuel Wells SurgiCenter which was the first state licensed Surgical Center for Plastic Surgery in Florida which maintains an excellent record of patient safety boasting no major complications in it’s entire history.
