What You Should Know
Looks Medical Spa is based out of Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. There are only two locations which greatly limits the number of dieters who can access the resources and treatments provided. Among the services provided by the Looks Medical Spa is liposuction. The remaining services are more focused on anti-aging and skin care. These include chemical peels, microdermabrasion and Botox. While liposuction may reduce the amount of cellulite under the skin, is does not reduce weight or improve fitness levels which are two important factors to healthier living.
List of Ingredients
Medical procedures for anti-aging and cosmetic care.
The Looks Medical Spa offers liposuction using Vaser Lipo. Vaser Lipo uses ultrasonic waves to melt fat cells. The liquid fat is then sucked out with a small probe. Patients are awake during the procedure and there is minimal pain and recovery time. The trouble with Vaser Lipo is the fact that most physicians aim the procedure at people who are already thin, but need extra help removing a few pockets of fat here and there.
On the Looks Medical Spa website, there are before and after photos of patients that supposedly underwent Vaser Lipo. One picture clearly resembles a before and after for a tummy tuck associated with extreme weight loss. There is no mention of how much a Vaser Lipo procedure may cost, but further research puts the price between $5,600 and $13,500 depending on how many areas are treated.
Weight loss is not the same a liposuction. Liposuction removes a layer of fat, but that does not change eating habits and metabolism. Even if the fat cells are gone, the remaining fat cells in the area will expand if too many calories are eaten daily. Liposuction is typically reserved for people who have lost a significant amount of weight or have trouble slimming down one area of the body naturally after many months or years of work.
- Will reduce the look of cellulite under the skin.
- Vaser Lipo has fewer side effects.
- The cost of Vaser Lipo from Looks Medical Spa is far higher than diet and exercise.
- There is no training for keeping the body slimmer after surgery.
- Before and after photos show an overweight person slimming dramatically this could only be associated with a tummy tuck.
Liposuction from Looks Medical Spa is not the answer to weight loss. Liposuction, Vaser or traditional, will only remove fat cells from under the skin. This does not stop remaining fat cells from expanding when too many calories are eaten. Lipo procedures at Looks Medical Spa are completed under local anesthesia which means the patient is awake during the entire process.
