Risso says, "I tried everything from atkins diet, to the South Beach to Slim Fast." D espite her best efforts, the weight wouldn't budge.
Elaine is four-pants sizes smaller thanks to liposelection. Edmond Zingaro, M.D. says, "There's less bruising. There's less pain. There's less swelling."
Traditional liposuction sucks out fat, but this procedure uses ultrasound energy to liquify the fat, for example- i t dissolves shortening in water.
There's less bruising because it targets only fat leaving other tissue unharmed.
Elaine was back at work in four days.
Now Elaine feels like her old self. "I don't get up in the morning and dread having to get ready and go into my closet and try to find something that I'm going to feel comfortable wearing," says Risso.
She says two days of pain was a small price to pay to get her body and her self-esteem back. The ultrasound technology is so precise that it can be used almost anywhere on the body.
