At some point or another, you’ve probably heard the phrase “stubborn fat,” or fat that doesn’t seem to budge no matter how much an individual diets or exercises. Since 1986, Dr. Edmond Griffin and Dr. Scott Karempelis have been taking care of their patients “stubborn fat” by providing safe and effective outpatient tumescent liposuction utilizing both traditional and cutting edge techniques to suit individual cosmetic needs. While liposuction results are greatly influenced by the surgeon’s skill, fat reduction is further facilitated by ever-advancing body contouring technology. In the 25 years our surgeons have performed liposuction procedures, we’ve watched and worked with advancing liposuction technology. For years we worked with ultrasonic techniques that claimed to have an edge on traditional liposuction, but now lasers can more precisely target the unwanted fat for easier, safer, and more effective surgical removal. With so many laser liposuction systems on the market, it’s difficult to know which laser assisted machine you should choose. That is why, after thorough research, Dermatology Associates of Atlanta is excited to offer SlimLipo™ to our Atlanta patients. Despite its novelty, this technology has already become the top choice of laser liposuction methods by many surgeons.
SlimLipo™ laser assisted liposuction does not deemphasize the importance of selecting a properly experienced surgeon, but acts more as the “icing on the cake”: resulting in faster healing, less drainage, and most importantly, skin tightening post- procedure. Our specialty center team at the Laser Institute of Georgia has long known the dramatic collagen production potential of laser skin resurfacing. Now, the combination skin tightening and fat reduction benefits of SlimLipo™ laser liposuction allows our board certified dermatological surgeons to use micro cannulas to remove fat with less bruising, smaller incisions, less blood loss, and the best part—less downtime and faster healing.

Last month was officially skin cancer awareness month, but skin cancer awareness shouldn’t end in May. We also would like to take this opportunity to better explain recent FDA changes to sunscreen which you may have heard about in the news the last few days. With 35 years of experience treating skin conditions, the physicians and providers at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta know that, although most skin cancer is treatable, prevention is critical. Following a few easy tips can prevent skin cancer without compromising your warm weather fun.
- Apply appropriate sunscreen:
Select a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. If you plan to be in the sun for extended amounts of time, you will need to reapply. The length of time it takes for sunscreen to wear off is based on the SPF and can be determined by multiplying the SPF by 10 (SPF X 10=minutes of sun protection). For instance, one application of 30 SPF should last about 300 minutes. More
