real liposuction?
Compression Garment

You advised me to have real real liposuction to get rid of stubborn fat in areas such as love handles and belly that don't go even after doing regular sport and eating healthy diet. Ins't it too heavy? I mean, it requires general anesthesia and needs few weeks recovery.
What about the Non-surgical liposuction ? SmartLipo which doesn't require general anesthesia?
