LANGHORNE, Pa. - June 3, 2013 - PRLog -- My name is Heidi S. I am 55 years old, divorced and a mother of two grown children (ages 25 and 23). Although I am careful with what I eat and go to the gym a few days a week, I have a couple of areas on my body that I can't seem to do anything about. If I am able to lose weight, my face and legs get noticeably thinner, but not my belly and hips. I always look for loose tops to hide this, and wear leggings or narrow slacks to show off the only part of my body that looks OK. After talking to some of my friends I decided to look into liposuction to finally change my body shape. I needed to do my homework and learn about what the best type of treatment is, who to go to, what the treatment would involve (scared of pain), and what my recovery would be like. I work full time, and needed to do something that would get me back to work quickly.  I used the internet to do my preliminary homework and asked my friends who were willing to discuss liposuction, what they had done.

One of my friends told me about Dr. Goldfarb, who did her liposuction last year, and she had a great experience. I decided to call his office for a consultation to get his opinion and ask more questions. Here is what I have learned. There is plain liposuction, and laser liposuction. I now know the difference and found out that with laser liposuction, the results are smoother and my skin would be tighter. This is the difference. Both treatments remove fat, but with liposuction the fat is sucked out in little chunks, which could leave me looking a bit lumpy. Laser liposuction heats the fat before it is sucked out . Think of trying to remove pieces of cold butter versus butter at room temperature. Also, the laser "wand" is used under the skin to tighten it up, sort of like running my blow dryer over plastic wrap - it shrinks the skin! Dr. Goldfarb uses a laser  called SmartLipo, which I have read quite a bit about, and seems to be regarded as the best out there. Of course, who does the procedure is most important.

During my consultation, Dr. Goldfarb met with me to look at my areas that bothered me, we discussed the entire procedure at great length and he answered all of my questions. I was nervous and probably asked the same thing several times, but Dr. Goldfarb and his wonderful staff were kind and patient and made me feel completely at ease.  After meeting them, I made the decision that I wanted him to help me get the shape I wanted.
