What is SAFELipo® body contouring?

SAFELipo® is a combination of traditional liposuction and more! The SAFELipo® process includes the extraction of unwanted, stubborn fat as well as redistributing the fat, tightening the skin, and reshaping the treatment area for a contoured figure.

SAFELipo® also makes for an ideal complementing procedure to other body contouring approaches you may have received in the past. Consult with Dr. Shapiro to learn more!

Where on the body can SAFELipo® remove unwanted fat?

SAFELipo® can safely and effectively remove unwanted, stubborn fat from nearly any part of the face and body!

How long does a SAFELipo® body contouring procedure take?

The time span for a SAFELipo® treatment session will depend upon what you would like to accomplish through this procedure in addition to the size and location of the treated area.

What is the recovery process like?

Each person’s recovery will differ from one another since each patient will be receiving a different extent of treatment. Typically, patients in the past who have undergone SAFELipo® have been able to return to work and resume most of their activities after a few days. We strongly advise each patient to hold off on resuming their fitness routine for at least 2 weeks following their SAFELipo® treatment date.

Dear Patients,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the reopening of my practice for both surgical and non-surgical services on May 1, 2020. As per the governor Ducey's executive order on April 22, 2020, elective surgery has been allowed to proceed, with appropriate precautions taken by health care professionals to ensure continued vigilance against the spread of Covid-19.

Our office staff and the staff of Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center and Surgical Recovery Center have proactively taken necessary precautions to meet strict criterion for health providers according to the state of Arizona. These include necessary patient screening for Covid-19, strict protocols for cleaning offices and treatment rooms, adequate PPE, and continued social distancing. As before, waiting areas will have minimal capacity, and friends and family members should not accompany one into offices or treatment areas.

With great anticipation we welcome you back to the practice, and wish you all continued health and safety.
