Painlessly Lose Fat With Albuquerque Laser Lipo
Are you one of the millions of Americans having difficulty losing fat? Have you signed up for various diets and/or exercise programs that have not lived up to the hype? If so, you’re not alone.
The good news is that advances in laser technology have helped many New Mexicans overcome those issues and achieve a new body image. In 2010, Dr. Michael Plaman of Albuquerque Laser Lipo became one of the first New Mexico healthcare professionals to provide advanced laser lipo procedures to his patients, he says, adding that the treatments have achieved a 95 percent success rate, are non-invasive, completely painless, fully FDA-approved and usually get results by the end of the first treatment.
To get started, Dr. Plaman meets individually with each patient to determine an appropriate customized treatment plan. During this initial consultation, patients are evaluated to determine whether or not they are a good candidate for laser lipo. “We offer the most thorough consultation in town,” he says. “We encourage patients to ask a lot of questions to fully understand the process and feel comfortable.”
Ten treatments are administered over the course of three to five weeks, given one to three times a week. Multiple laser paddles are placed on a targeted area of the body — such as the abdomen, back or love handles — for about 20 to 40 minutes per visit. The cold lasers are set to a frequency that can target the fat cells below the skin to release their contents into the body, which are then processed by the lymph system and the liver. No needles or tubes are used, compared with standard liposuction procedures, notes Dr. Plaman.
The laser lipo treatments are effective and safe, using fully FDA-approved technology, notes Dr. Plaman. Another benefit of non-
invasive lipo is that Dr. Plaman is able to cover a larger area of the body with multiple laser pads with more than 100 lasers total, resulting in a smooth and even body surface. In traditional liposuction, doctors operate under the skin, which can cause lumpiness and an uneven finish if any fat pockets are missed or if the body forms scar tissue or contractures after the surgery. “With laser lipo there is no risk of nerve damage, unlike with traditional liposuction,” adds Dr. Plaman. “And unlike cool sculpting, there is no pain or dying tissue left underneath the skin.”
Albuquerque Laser Lipo uses the most advanced laser lipo technology available to any healthcare professional, says Dr. Plaman. “We use medical grade lasers that can only be utilized by a licensed doctor,” he explains, adding that the company acquired fifth generation lasers this year to provide even more effective treatment.
For nearly a decade, Dr. Plaman has successfully helped women and men realize a more contoured body and regain their self-
confidence, he says. “Many women come to us who are extremely frustrated by that stubborn, unsightly fat that bulges through their clothes, no matter how many sit-ups they’ve done or how many diet shakes they’ve consumed,” he explains. “Others complain of troublesome thighs or thick, flappy upper arms that jiggle when they walk. If you’re a man, you might be tired of comments about your ‘beer belly’ or embarrassed by those prominent love handles, or you might be concerned about the fat that seems to be sticking to your upper chest and is continuing to accumulate to the point that you don’t want to take off your shirt in public.”
A whole range of patients use the body-shaping technology to feel and look their best, notes Dr. Plaman, from body builders, models and athletes to those who are simply overweight. He says many patients have gone through this body-shaping technology procedure for a variety of purposes, including career issues, health issues, and to look and feel great. For example, he has helped many military personnel achieve their desired waistline measurement so they can pass a mandatory
physical. Also, it isn’t uncommon for fitness contestants, athletes and body builders to come in to get rid of that last bit of fat that won’t leave until the laser forces it to leave, he adds.
Dr. Plaman has treated people from age 18 to 86, and each treatment plan is custom-tailored to meet the client’s individual needs and goals. “People who have extreme weight issues of over 300 pounds or health issues related to excess fat are also potential good candidates for this technology,” he says. “There truly is a solution for nearly everyone.”
Laser lipo has also proven to be very popular among busy professionals. Many areas of the body can benefit from laser lipo including the middle of the back, the neck, behind the knees, the stomach, waist line and the upper arms. “The laser stimulates the fat cells to release them into the body, and the body processes out that content,” says Dr. Plaman.
There are other companies that offer laser lipo, but “don’t be fooled by light therapy as opposed to laser therapy,” warns Dr. Plaman. “We encourage patients to be highly selective and do research before choosing a provider.”
Albuquerque Laser Lipo is a professional clinic run by a fully-licensed doctor, governed by a healthcare board in New Mexico.
Dr. Plaman understands that some people considering fat reduction treatment from Albuquerque Laser Lipo might be hesitant to make an initial appointment. During the free, no-obligation consultation, patients can view “before” and “after” photos of satisfied customers who’ve had the procedure done on similar areas of the body. Some “before” and “after” photos are also available here but the largest collection of photos can be viewed in their office.
Of course, any fat removal system works best as part of an overall health and fitness plan, says Dr. Plaman. If a client’s caloric intake isn’t in balance with their physical lifestyle, the effects of the procedure can be diminished, he warns.
