Pretty much every woman who has ever gone on a diet with her best guy friend or significant other can attest to the infuriating fact that men just seem to lose weight easier and faster than women do. At LipoLaser of South Jersey, we’ve seen it too, and here’s why:

  • LipoLaser fat reduction NJExercise. In general men have more muscle, which burns more fat, than women do. Women increase this difference by lifting light weights and focusing on cardio instead of building the muscle that would help them burn fat faster.
  • Nutrition. Studies show that even when women aren’t hungry, when they come into contact with delicious treats like pizza and pastries, they are more likely to consume them.
  • Biochemistry. For women, ghrelin (the hormone that tells you that you’re hungry) spikes after they workout. So even when you workout, your body is working to put that weight you’re losing right back on.
  • Mental blocks. Women tend to be emotional eaters who will crave the not-so-good-for-you foods that contain high amounts of fat and sugar when they are bored, stressed, or even happy.

But it doesn’t have to be so difficult. Our patients have lost inches with our fat reduction treatments. Are you ready to stop being frustrated and start enjoying your slimmer look?

Skin Car LipoLaser of South JerseyThe internet and beauty magazines are filled with myths about skin care that keep you guessing the best way to maintain your youthful appearance. Here are 5 myths you can stop believing right now and find your way to healthier, more beautiful looking skin in 2015.

  1. Plump is better. Filling your face with injectables isn’t always the answer. Often you will look younger and more refreshed with Jet Peel and Microcurrent treatments to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production.
  2. Sunburns don’t happen in winter. Yes, they do. Although many of us spend less time outside during winter months, the sun’s UV rays are still in full effect. Don’t skimp on the sunscreen just because it’s chilly outside.
  3. Pores can be tightened and shrunk by toner. Resizing your pores is almost impossible. However, keeping them clean will make them far less noticeable. Make sure to use a good daily cleanser, like Obagi, twice a day to keep your skin cleaner.
  4. Tanning can be safe. Even if tanning beds can filter out UVB rays, they are still penetrating your skin with UVA rays. Too much exposure will age your skin prematurely and can lead to skin cancer.
  5. Acne is caused by poor hygiene. Acne can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress and hormone imbalances. Gently washing your face twice a day and using prescribed acne treatments are the best ways to keep your skin from breaking out.

This is the first of a three part series on Microcurrent facial sculpting, the Natural Face Lift.

As you get older, your body loses a good amount of natural electrical energy. This is analogous to a battery gradually losing its charge. We’ll look at your skin at a cellular level. Losing your natural electrical energy, results in a breakdown of collagen and elastin. What does that mean? You get is sagging and unevenness of texture, lines. You also get wrinkles, folds, and puffiness. The facial muscles under your skin become increasingly contracted over the years. This comes from facial expressions and the effects of constant gravity. The overall lift of your face declines.

Cosmetic surgery creates an unnatural appearance. If you look close enough, sometimes you don’t even have to look that close, you can tell. And it’s surgery and think whatever you want, but there are risks associated with surgery. Microcurrent is a natural, non-invasive, non-surgical process. We call it the Natural Face lift.

During this natural face lift treatment Microcurrent emits subtle electrical frequencies that mimic your body’s very own electrical signals. ATP is an abbreviation for adenosine triphosphate, it is the chemical fuel of human cells. The Microcurrent treatment increases the amount of ATP by as much as 500%. Those increased levels of ATP re-educate your facial muscles. The net result is a lifting of facial features. During the process microcurrent reconstitutes collagen and elastin.

Unlike cosmetic surgery the Natural Face lift does not rely on invasive procedures that cut your skin to stimulate anti-aging properties. That means no scalpel, no anesthesia. No redness, harmful side-effects, wounding or infections, abrasions, soreness, and no pain at all.

This is the third of a three part series on Microcurrent facial sculpting, the Natural Face-lift.

As you get older your life changes and so does your skin.

When you are from 18 – 35 you are concerned about preventing lines from forming.

You also want to rejuvenate your skin from too many late nights and good times, the stress of school, work, relationships, any of the above or all of the above. Then there is always the dreaded possibility of acne.

When you’re 35 – 60 you are concerned about looking more tired than you actually are. Creases appear out of nowhere and your complexion is dull. You look in the mirror and you’re feeling those years.

When you’re 60 and older you are concerned that you actually look that old. Skin is sagging and there is dryness along with a loss of elasticity. Your lines get deeper and creases appear around the mouth and eyes. You might have drooping eyelids and your face can no longer accurately express what you are really feeling.

The Natural Face Lift will lift your lids, widen your eyes and soften your mouth. This will wake up your skin, and other parts of your life. You will look and feel younger.

This facial sculpting technology is a non-surgical alternative to cosmetic surgery. People all over the world are discovering the better way to achieve beautiful looking skin. You will have a more natural look, and no more unnatural appearance that is all too often a result of cosmetic surgery.

The Natural Facelift does not rely on cutting your skin to stimulate anti-aging properties. That means no scalpel, no anesthesia. Forget redness, harmful side-effects, wounding or infections, abrasions and soreness. This is a total no pain procedure.

This post is the first of two parts on liposuction risks and complications.

Risks
Like any other medical procedure there are risks involved with liposuction. That’s why it is critical for you to understand the limitations and possible complications of liposuction surgery. Before you commit to liposuction, you need to be aware of these risks. Then you can assess the risks and benefits based on what actually matters to you. Try to avoid being influenced by friends who have had this procedure or doctors, especially doctors, encouraging you to go through with it. Do your research and make your own decision on whether you are willing to take the risks involved in liposuction.

People think that because it is not medically necessary and is normally a cosmetic procedure that complications “only happen to other people.” It is critical for you to understand what the risks are and decide if you are willing to accept the possibility that it could happen to you.

Complications
This procedure is surgery and infections may happen after any surgery. That means they may happen after liposuction. Some physicians prescribe antibiotics to all liposuction patients but others do not. No matter what, it is important to keep the wound(s) clean. But even if you do, infections may sometimes occur from the surgery. Sometimes, infections may be serious or life threatening. Two examples;

  1. Necrotizing fasciitis (bacteria eat away at the tissue).
  2. Toxic shock syndrome, a serious, sometimes fatal infection caused by a bacteria, that is associated with surgery.

An embolism may occur when fat is loosened and enters the blood through blood vessels ruptured (broken) during liposuction. Pieces of fat get trapped in the blood vessels, gather in the lungs, or travel to the brain. What are the signs of pulmonary emboli (fat clots in the lungs)? The patient might experience shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. If you have the signs or symptoms of fat emboli after liposuction, it is critical for you to seek emergency medical care immediately. Fat emboli may cause permanent disability or, in some cases, be fatal. Yes, that means you could die from it.

A major component of any fat loss or body contouring program is nutrition and that means eating healthy foods. Watch this USDA produced video on the benefits of eating whole grains.

This post is the second of two parts on liposuction risks and complications. .

Visceral Perforations (puncture wounds in the organs) can happen during liposuction. During the procedure the physician cannot see where the canula or probe is. It is possible to puncture or damage internal organs during liposuction. For example, this may happen if the intestines are punctured during abdominal liposuction. When organs are damaged, surgery may be required to repair them. Visceral perforations may also be fatal.

After liposuction you may experience Seroma. That is a pooling of serum in areas where tissue has been removed. Serum is the straw colored liquid from your blood.
After liposuction there could be nerve compression and changes in sensation. You may experience “paresthesias”, an altered sensation at the site of the liposuction. This may either be in the form of an increased sensitivity (pain) in the area, or the loss of any feeling (numbness) in the area. If these changes in sensation persist for a long period of time (weeks or months) you need to inform your physician. In some cases, these changes in sensation could be permanent.

After liposuction there may be swelling or edema. In some cases, swelling may persist for weeks or months after the surgery.

Skin Necrosis (skin death) may occur after the surgery. The skin above the liposuction site may become necrotic or “die.” When this happens, skin may change color and be sloughed (fall) off. It is possible that large areas of skin necrosis may become infected with bacteria or microorganisms.

During ultrasound assisted liposuction, the ultrasound probe could become very hot and possibly cause burns.

After liposuction fluid Imbalance may also happen. During liposuction fat tissue, which contains a lot of liquid, is removed. During the procedure physicians may also inject large amounts of fluids. The net result could be a fluid imbalance. While in the physician’s office, surgical center or hospital, the staff will be watching you for signs of fluid imbalance. However, this could happen after you go home. It can result in serious conditions including:

  • Heart problems
  • Excess fluid collecting in the lungs
  • Kidney problems as your kidneys work to maintain fluid balance.

Toxicity from Anesthesia may occur during surgery. Lidocaine, a drug that numbs the skin, is frequently used as a local anesthetic during liposuction. Large volumes of liquid with lidocaine may be injected during liposuction. You could end up with very high doses of lidocaine. The signs of this are:

  • Lightheadedness
  • Restlessness
  • Drowsiness
  • Tinnitis (a ringing in the ears)
  • Slurred speech
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Numbness of the lips and tongue
  • Shivering
  • Muscle twitching and convulsions.

Lidocaine toxicity may cause a heart stoppage. And yes, this can be fatal. In general, any type of anesthesia may cause complications and is always considered a risk factor during any type of surgery.

Fatalities Related to Liposuction. There are multiple reports of deaths related to the liposuction procedure. This is not an urban myth, it does happen. It is difficult to be sure how often death from liposuction happens. There are several studies that estimate how often patients undergoing liposuction die during the procedure or as a result of it.
Some studies indicate that the risk of death due to liposuction is as low as 3 deaths for every 100,000 liposuction operations performed. However, other studies indicate that the risk of death is between 20 and 100 deaths per 100,000 liposuction procedures.

One study suggests that the death rate is higher in liposuction surgeries when other surgical procedures are also performed. In order to understand the risk level, one paper compares the deaths from liposuction to deaths from car accidents (16 per 100,000). It is important to remember that liposuction is a surgical procedure and that there may be serious complications, including death.
