It has been an honor to serve the men and women of our Armed Forces stationed in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Using the most advanced laser lipolysis technology, I have performed treatments for military waist reduction and for cosmetic liposculpture, and am very familar with advanced liposculpture technology available in Wilmington, NC. Since my office is less than an hour drive from Jacksonville, I am able to serve this community with relative ease.

Here are some of the most common questions asked by people from Jacksonville, Camp Lejeune and surrounding areas:

Is this a major surgery like traditional liposuction?

No. Using state-of-the-art SmartLipo Triplex technology allows me to perform the procedure under local anesthesia thereby reducing the risk of complications. It also allows for gentle removal of fat through melting rather than through the more traumatic methods used in traditional liposuction.

What can I expect for recovery time?

Typical recovery time is from 2 to 5 days depending on the treatment area. Most of my patients find that they are back to normal activity within 2 to 3 days. You will be required to wear a compression garment for three weeks.

What kind of results can I expect?

As with all cosmetic surgical procedures, results are individualized and candidacy is based upon individual goals and body type. I offer a complimentary private consultation, because I believe that matching your body to the correct procedure is critical to success in achieving your goals. As for those patients selected for the procedure, I have been pleased with their results and humbled by how it has re-energized their drive to look and be their best.

Are the results permanent?

Yes. The SmartLipo Triplex technology specifically targets and destroys fat cells. Because our bodies do not regenerate new fat cells, the result is permanent cellular fat loss. However, I encourage all my patients to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. I consider this a partnership with my patients whereby we create and maintain a lasting transformation.

What is the cost?

Since we are able to perform the procedure without the expense of a hospital facility and anesthesiologist, we can offer our procedures at a lower price than the traditional methods.  Pricing starts at $1429 per area, but cost depends on the size and level of complexity of the area.
