Lipotomy for weight loss

What is Lipotomy?

Lipotomy is a cosmetic treatment aimed at fat reduction. According to Wikipedia, towards the end of the 1990s, Bernstein (Paris) was the first to carry out clinical trials and to try to codify the technique. He coined the term "Lipotomie". Others followed (Haddad in Paris), trying to bring each one their contribution, for example by using lecithin of soya injections, but without, however, obtaining convincing results. Several meetings remained necessary and the results were inconsistent from the quality point of view. The fatty cells can indeed easily present unpleasant and unaesthetic scars called lipodystrophies.

The first to have standardized and to optimize the results, on large scale, was Pirmez with his team in 2002. Pirmez developed a formulation of infiltration liquid of combining effectiveness and inocuity. The basic concept took again the action of the osmolarity, potentiated by the use of a facilitator agent.

For the first time the technique was codified and duly recorded near the European medical authorities. With his collaborator, Durand, they have at the present time a series of more than 800 clinical cases, showing a completely convincing rate of satisfaction.

How does lipotomy works?

Lipotomy procedure session lasts to 2 to 4 hours, but it all depends on the part of body concerned. First, measure of body and weight of client will be taken. After that, medical check up like blood pressure and cholesterol level will be done by the expert. If the check up result is satisfying, client will allow to have lipotomy procedure on four parts of their body. But if client's health condition is not satisfying enough, client only allow to undergo a treatment on two part of body only. 

Secondly, after deciding on which part of the bady to be reduce, the expert will inject a liquid into the fat. There are two stages where the first injection is using three small in size syringe, and in the second stage syringe in long size is use. Topical anesthetic will apply on the client's skin before injection to reduce pain. This liquid is meant to unstabilized the fat structure under the skin. 

Thirdly, a hard massage will apply to the skin that just inject. This is to break the structure of the unstable fat under the skin.

With a special vibrating device, the massaged body part will be given a strong but stable shake. This fourth procedure is once again to elaborate the body fat into a very small particle so it may absorb in the blood and flush out of the body naturally.

To maximize the process of flushing out the fat of body through urine and at the same time to keep the body silhoutte from sagging, client is required to wear medical corset made from lycra or polyamida for a week of period or two. In this period, client are not encourage to put off this corset. This corset which material is elastic and very thin can be wear even during bath time, and dry up with a hair dryer after bath. But for a client with sensitive skin, this corset can be put off for a while, maximum time of 10 minutes for bath time. After a week wearing this corset, client is advise to continue wearing it for another 3 weeks, but only during day time. If all this rules follows without fail, we can see a loss of 6-9 cm after one treatment (and maximum 24cm with one women in only 2 weeks).

Rules to follow

After 3 days of treatment, client is advise not to do any exercise routine. The extreme of fat dissolve process in the first 3 days, may cause a dehydration. Within a week to 4 week period of time after treatment, client is advise to reduce carbs intake and sugary foods.

After a 1 week treatment, client is required to make a follow-up visit, this time for checking and massaging using a special vibrating device. This process is a must to stimulate the fat to dissolve in maximum level. This session is going for 3 weeks.

Side Effect

Negative effect that may arise after lipotomy procedure including an increase of cholesterol level and triglicerin in blood. But there is nothing to worry as this is temporary. This is happens when blood absorb the dissolve fat in body, and flush it out through urine and digestive system.

The positive effect about this treatment, is a loss of weight and cellulite, reduce body fat and not water weight. Unlike liposuction, this treatment left no scars on skin.

Dark Circle and Weight Loss - Is it Related?

2 Lovely Thoughts
Do any of you experience dark circle under your eyes after losing weight? 

Weight Loss and Dark Circle
As they say, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. 

The skin below our eyes is very thin and is not as well endowed with oil glands as the rest of the body. Basically, the skin below our eyes gets dry and wrinkled as we age. As a result, the veins in the lower eye area appear more prominent and develop dark circles under the eyes.

How dark circle has anything to do with weight loss? When you lose weight, you will also lose some of the fat surrounding your eyes. This loss combined with the thinning of your skin, magnifies the appearance of dark eye circles. Indeed, losing weight does not come without a cost! Dark under eye circles have many causes, and weight loss isn't the only one.

Here are some other possible non-related weight loss factors that cause dark circles.

1. Heredity 

Dark under eye circles is often an inherited trait. Those who are prone to allergies or itchy skin condition are susceptible to dark circles since inflammation and rubbing of eyes can thicken and darken the skin around them. Some food allergies can also cause the area under the eyes to appear darker. Excess folds of skin under the eyes will also make dark circles more pronounced.

2. Lack of Sleep 

Lack of sleep and fatigue can cause the skin to grow wan and pale. This makes blood vessels under the eyes to appear more visible and dark. The paleness that occurs with fatigue, a cold or sinus infection or during menstruation or pregnancy may accentuate the circles under the eyes. Partying all night and smoking can play havoc with your skin and result in dark eye circles. But bear in mind, oversleeping on the other hand can also cause dark eye circles.

3. Bone Structure 

Deep set eyes may have a tendency to develop dark shadows under them. In fair-skinned persons, dark eyes become more obvious.

4. Sun Exposure 

Increased exposure to the sun can draw pigmentation the skin’s surface and create dark circles.

5. Medication 

Drugs that cause blood vessels to dilate may result in darkening circles around the eyes.

6. Nutrition 

Dark circle around the eyes can be the result of poor nutrition.

7. Hormonal Changes 

Since the skin undergoes changes during pregnancy and menstruation, you may notice darkening of the circles under the eyes.
