Cellulite Reduction with i-Lipo – Dr. Jon Perlman of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery
i-Lipo was featured on The American Health Journal on PBS, in a segment titled “Cellulite Reduction with i-Lipo”
Dr. Jon Perlman of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery thoroughly explained the fat reduction process of i-Lipo, stating:
“i-Lipo is short for intelligent lipo, and it’s based on a low power, diode laser that’s been shown at very low power levels, to open up the pores in the fat cells to allow the triglycerides to come out as free fatty acids, evacuating the fat cells. So the cell collapses, the body has the ability to metabolize that fat, and it’s a method of directed body sculpting. We can decrease the circumference of an area where there’s extra fat padding beneath the skin.”
Dr. Perlman also mentions that i-Lipo is ideal for someone who’s dieting and exercising, but just can’t reduce fat in a certain area. He also explains that once i-Lipo is performed on a targeted area, the chances that the patient will gain weight back in that specific spot are unlikely. The segment showed Dr. Perlman performing the procedure on a patient in his office.
