EXPERT Q&A

Q: Can you tell me the effectiveness of i-lipo for treating small pockets of fat on inner and outer thighs.

What our experts say:

I consider I-lipo to be very similar to Zerona.  While I must make it clear that I have no personal experience using either of these technologies, I must say that I have consistently heard only disappointment in terms of their results.  Specifically, it seems that while they may make fat cells "leaky" and therefore may lead to some local reduction, the fat can easily come back to the same area.  I personally find CoolSculpting by Zeltiq to be consistently effective as a non-invasive, no downtime, FDA-cleared alternative to liposuction.
