Drop 1 Dress Size in 1 Hour: Results Promised

Video transcript

 

Reporter:

All right and It’s not liposuction and it’s not a laser. A new procedure though says it can help you drop one dress size in one hour. Are you kidding me. Joining me this morning Dr. William Groff of cosmetic laser dermatology is here to show us how it works. OK So tell me what is the deal with this liposonix?

 

Dr. William:

Well the exciting thing about liposonix is its non-invasive, so it’s non-surgical

It only takes one hour and can drop one dress or one pant size with one treatment.

 

Reporter:

Really?

 

Dr. William:

Really.

 

Reporter:

And we have some video to show a little bit about how this works. So what are we looking at right here.

 

Dr. William:

This is a patient just like ours on the table and you can see when the machine is placed against the skin the ultrasound energy is directed in the plane of fat. Using that scanning hand piece you can see how it uses heat to destroy the fat cells your body will then naturally metabolize that fat similar to when you had say a meal at McDonald’s and you had a fatty meal will break down the fat the same way.

 

Reporter:

And so you’re looking at about an hour for the procedure itself.

 

Dr. William:

Right usually it takes about an hour to do the waist.

And then in about eight to twelve weeks you’ll see an introduction in your waist size which is about one pant size.

 

Reporter:

Interesting and we have a patient here you’re actually going to kind of do a little demonstration for this works right.

 

Dr. William:

Right. Let’s do that right now.

So this is Amanda you can see we have her abdomen already gritted out for the treatment.

So the first time we do is we just spray a little bit of water on her abdomen. Just to make contact with the ultrasound device then I’m going to place the transducer on her belly and I’ll start the treatment kind of here working. So right now this is acting as a magnifying lens and that little scanning hand piece is going through the layers of fat and destroying the fact using heat.

 

Reporter:

Really. And so you’re going to stay how long on this one section?

 

Dr. William:

One section takes about forty two seconds.

 

Reporter:

Ok and what are we looking at cost wise for this procedure?

 

Dr. William:

Well it depends on the size of the patient and how large of regions being treated so it can be anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a couple thousand dollars.

 

Reporter:

Who’s a good candidate for this?

 

Dr. William:

Anyone who’s just has a little bit of fat to lose you don’t want to be treating patients who are say fifty pounds overweight but if you’re ten to twenty pounds overweight you just want to lose an inch around the waist you’d be the perfect days it for.

 

Reporter:

Does it hurt? Just give me a thumbs up or down?

No no ok she’s oh she’s fine it doesn’t hurt.

 

Patient:

It doesn’t.

 

Reporter:

What does it feel like?

 

Patient:

It’s more by heating sensation.

 

Reporter:

OK it’s just going to get gets hot. Does it get itchy?

 

Patient:

It’s not hot, it’s tingly but it’s warm.

 

Reporter:

OK Interesting and so that’s one section.

 

Dr. William:

And so that’s one section, one square. You can see how big the transducer is so we have to use this to cover the entire area. You can see how it actually looks like a magnifying lens, so if you think about when you’re a little and you take a magnifying lens in the sun would come through and focus all the energy in one plane that’s exactly what this hand piece does.

 

Reporter:

What are the drawbacks of having this done?

 

Dr. William on risks and side effects:

Well the drawbacks might be if you had to pick some would be that maybe if you have a lot of excessive fat, you’re not going to get the reduction you get with maybe a lipo sculpture but the nice thing is that at our practice we have this we also offer a lipo sculpture and a few other noninvasive technologies so there’s options out there.

 

Reporter:

We have a couple of before and after pictures to show and I will go and put those up. So this is obviously a man that’s had this done.

man: before after result
man: before after result

 

 

Dr. William:

Right. So you can see he’s lost about an inch around on his waist, here’s a woman who lost actual little bit more about two inches around her waistline.

This third patient again lost about two inches around her waistline with one treatment which is nice and this treatment is repeatable, so you see the back some result in about three months because I’m going to repeat the treatment get another inch gone.

2 inches waistline lost
2 inches waistline lost

Reporter:

And how long is the result going to last?

 

Dr. William:

This is permanent and actually. It’s a very good point this is permanent fat reductions.  That fat will not come back just like lipo sculpture and liposuction the fat is gone.

 

Reporter:

Interesting. Had you had done this before? is today your first time?

 

Patient:

first time.

 

Reporter:

Yeah OK Interesting.

So I’m so what’s the main thing you want people to know if they’re maybe weighing different options this is a there’s a lot of different choices for folks out there.

 

Dr. William:

And I think you know if you’re going to look into these technologies you want to go to a doctor that has many options if you go to an office that only has one option than we are going only be able to offer you that one option.

You have to make choices and you want them to be informed choices, educated choices.

 

Reporter:

Very good excellent and once again it’s called liposonix that’s really interesting I’ve never heard of this before.

Let’s go ahead and put Dr. Graf information up if you’d like to get ahold of him, he’s located in the U.T.C. area you can see the address right there Genesee AVE and the phone number is on your screen.

If you don’t have time to write it down don’t worry you go to our website click on that scene on tab.

Thank you both for being here appreciate it.
