Thanks for the post WiseGeek! I really like that you pointed out that surgical body contouring doesn't just stop with liposuction. Most likely, people that have had lipo will have to do a tummy-tuck to remove that excess skin left over. After a tummy-tuck, a lot of doctors suggest getting laser treatments to generally smooth out the skin from the procedures.
My clinic specializes in a new medical procedure that does body contouring and cosmetic weight loss without surgery. It also tightens loose skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite, so you wouldn't need to do other treatments afterwards. No surgery, no pain and no downtime. Pretty awesome.
