How To Lose Unwanted Fat for a Healthier Life

Sunday, January 15th, 2023

Not only does it help achieve a more sculpted and toned look, but also helps achieve a healthier life by obtaining a more ideal weight. Many of these people are spending long hours in the gym, keeping an active lifestyle that surgery and the resulting recovery would significantly interfere with their daily lives.

Now, if you are like the many who want to get rid of excess or stubborn body fat but want to avoid surgery and a lengthy recovery, Zerona™ can help achieve that sculpted look you want with no downtime, recovery, or interruption to your everyday life.

Zerona™ is an FDA-approved treatment that uses laser energy not just to reduce the appearance of stubborn body fat but destroy the membranes that contain the fat cells and keep them away. This is a non-invasive way to slim and sculpt your body and requires no downtime or recovery after each treatment session.

During the treatment sessions that address your entire midsection, you will lie comfortably on your back and abdomen for 20 minutes each. Your doctor or aesthetician will then glide the handheld laser device across your skin.

The Zerona™ system uses cold laser technology to create a hole in the membranes that hold the fat cells together. The fat then leaks out through this hole, which is naturally removed and cleaned up by your body’s natural metabolic processes. Although the fat cells are not destroyed, as with other more invasive procedures, it is rare for the fat to return.

Most patients respond the best with around 6 treatment sessions spaced across a 2-week plan. Not only are these short enough to fit in with your regular schedule, but they are also painless and will not interrupt your everyday activities.

If you want to have a slimmer and more sculpted look around your abdomen and want to remove stubborn body fat without the risks and recovery of surgery, call the Center for Plastic Surgery in Highlands, NC, at 828-526-3783 or visit to see how Zerona™ can help you meet your aesthetic goals.

Thank you for your business over the years! Dr. Buchanan is closing his practice and the Center For Plastic Surgery's last day open will be January 31, 2023.
