New laser procedure trims away the inches without surgery

By Kelley Luckstein

A non-invasive procedure that helps you lose inches and contour your body without surgery. Unlike liposuction, doctors say this new procedure melts away fat without incisions, downtime, compression bandages or side effects…


"I would like to get to a point where my curves are natural. I think 'contouring' is the perfect word," says Matty, who is undergoing her first treatment with the Zerona laser…


The before and afters may be impressive, but, Mayo Clinic plastic surgeon Dr. Sarvam Terkonda says there's no long-term data and no guarantees. "What are you going to look like in two years, five years?” questions Dr. Terkonda. “And we don't know that with this current technique."  He says this procedure should only be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon and only after you fully understand what kind of results you can expect.
