By editor
October 1, 2015

What exciting times, in 2010 the world first was introduced to permanent non-invasive fat reduction. Finally we had something to rival liposuction without the surgery and anesthesia.

About a year ago I realized that 2014 would be the year that I would turn 60. And yes indeed, I did become a sexagenarian on October 1. So my New Year’s resolution last January was to take my own advice. I have spent the last 30 years counseling patients on how to look great ... read more
