SLIM™ Lipo is a new laser liposuction technology for Body Contouring.
For many years, liposuction in Milwaukee has helped many patients achieve a smoother body contour by eliminating unwanted pockets of localized fat. However, the procedure was considered fairly invasive, resulting in discomfort and time off work to recover. Modern technology now offers patients access to laser-assisted fat removal, which results in less invasive procedures and less downtime afterward.
SlimLipo is a laser-assisted body contouring treatment that eliminates localized fat with much less discomfort, bruising and recovery time than traditional liposuction procedures.
Finally the perfect marriage between liposuction and laser: a laser wavelength that selectively targets fat and energy which tightens skin! In most cases SlimLipo™ can be performed in our accredited office operating room under local anesthetic with conscious sedation. Remarkable skin tightening with little bruising is apparent at 14 days.
Palomar™ Medical has just introduced SLIM™ Lipo a new laser liposuction technology which will revolutionize the way liposuction is done. The word SLIM™ stands for Selective Laser Induced Melting and what is new is the way SLIM™ Lipo selectively melts fat-3 times more than SmartLipo™and 5 times more than the CoolLipo™ device.
To make this procedure accessible to all our patients we provide several Financing options. Call (414) 963-0500 for a consultation and get more details.

In some patients with smaller fat deposits we can melt the fat with the tiny SLIM™ Lipo laser fiber and with minimal liposuction remove the dissolved fat. This means less bruising, less trauma, and quick recovery.
Who is a candidate for the Slim Lipo procedure?
Candidates for Slim Lipo are men and women in relatively good health with localized areas of fat that have not responded well to diet and exercise. Slim Lipo is not a treatment for obesity and is usually used on patients of average weight.
What areas do Slim Lipo treatments target?
Physicians can treat patients in areas that are not normally treated with traditional liposuction, such as small areas and contour deformities. These areas include:
- Upper arms
In cases where smaller areas are treated, there is often no need for suction, further reducing the risk of bruising and discomfort after the procedure. In addition, Slim Lipo can be used on larger areas including:
In these cases, suction may be used to help eliminate the melted fat from the area.
