It has been less than 4 months since I have performed my first SLIM LIPO procedure and already have performed this procedure on more than 40 patients and treated more than 100 total body areas (eg. neck, breasts, chest, back, abdomen, total torso, thighs and knees) with near 100% patient satisfaction. At 3 months there has been significant reduction of fat and skin tightening in practically all of the patients treated. Obi Plastic Surgery is still the only plastic surgery center in Jacksonville with this technology. Please revisit out SLIM LIPO photo gallery to view these very early results.
