Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2007
The first and only plastic surgery center on world-famous Rodeo Drive now provides a transformative body sculpting procedure to create dramatic body change called First Year of Your Diet in a DayTM.
Liposuction traditionally has been used most effectively to treat people who are not very overweight, but have one or more focal areas that are fuller than the rest of their bodies. The procedure had limitations as a treatment to provide overall weight loss.
Experience with large volume liposuction, which can provide significant weight loss, has been mixed. There are large shifts in body fluid following the procedure and this can present real safety concerns. The standard of care now is to admit large volume liposuction patients to the hospital, and this can impose inconvenience and financial hardship.
"At Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, we believe there is a middle ground," notes founder and Medical Director Dr. Lloyd Krieger. "We offer select patients liposuction designed to jump-start their dieting process. The procedure provides sufficient fat removal to see dramatic results. It may not provide the full weight loss that people desire. But it provides enough change that people are in the position to have greatly improved body image and continue the process of dieting -- from a position of physical and emotional strength," Krieger says.
First Year of Your Diet in a DayTM provides a dramatic first step to lifelong change in appearance, exercise and diet.
Dr. Krieger notes that the program is not for everyone. "People must be in good overall health to be candidates," he says. "They must understand that the liposuction is a first -- albeit dramatic and gratifying -- step in a much longer process. They must keep in close contact with the plastic surgeon in the days following their procedure to assure maximal safety. After the initial procedure recovery, they should work at continuing good eating and exercise habits. We have relationships with professionals who can help make these adjustments successfully."
Dr. Krieger stresses that safety comes first when performing the procedure. "We perform all of our liposuction and liposculpture procedures in our fully certified surgery center rather than a procedure room," he notes. "We do our procedures with a physician anesthesiologist to monitor patient body reactions to liposuction, maintain comfort, and protect safety. Our team consists not only of the surgeon and anesthesiologist but also a nurse and a surgery technologist. With this full team, we are most confident patients will have a pleasant overall experience with the fewest possible risks."
For appropriate candidates, Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery's First Year of Your Diet in a DayTM has provided safe and rewarding body changes. Krieger concludes that the procedure really does jump-start overall lifestyle changes: "We find that most people who have had this sort of liposuction go on to lose more weight in the months following the procedure."
