During #SlimDownSeptember, Lexington Plastic Surgeons offers three non-surgical, body RE-defining programs – SlimAir, MediSlim and VelaShape available at all the LPS locations!
SlimAir is leading as a non-surgical procedure for weight loss. This unique FDA-Approved Orbera Balloon system for weight loss is clinically proven to help you shed 3.1X more weight than with diet and exercise alone.
“The success with this product has been terrific as we see our clients transform their bodies, their lifestyle and their eating habits to create a sustainable healthy mind/body/stomach balance. We have seen some patients lose 60 lbs. and keep it off,” explains Dr. Michael Jones, founder, and lead plastic surgeon at Lexington Plastic Surgeons.
The non-surgical process involves inserting an Orbera smooth, soft balloon into the stomach. This takes about 20 minutes and is completed in a LPS Office. No incisions, surgery, scars, or stitches are incurred. Once the Orbera is in, it is filled with a saline solution, growing the balloon to approximately the size of a grapefruit. The balloon now fills space in the stomach allowing the client to eat less, feel fuller faster and control portions sizes.
The process starts to work immediately.
Published clinical studies of Orbera have shown that when the client follows the prescribed diet and exercise program, he or she will maintain the weight loss through the post-removal stage as the balloon will be removed 6 months (180 days) from insertion.
While the Orbera Balloon is inside the stomach, the LPS professional health team supplies diet and wellness advise so that adoption of healthy new heating habits remain in place during and post. An average weight loss goal is 2lbs. per week. Seventy-five percent of weight lost is in the first 6 months while the Orbera Balloon is in the stomach.
This non-surgical procedure is completely reversible.

VelaShape for contouring, smoothing and toning that midsection
VelaShape is an FDA-approved heated device that safely and effectively reduces cellulite and tightens the skin. When used by an LPS artist, you will be proportionately sculpted, removing problem areas. This is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure.
The device rolls over the skin, massaging and smoothing as it goes. You will feel a warm sensation like that of a hot rock massage. The controlled movement, will focus on your special spots, contouring and reshaping you, while reducing cellulite and tightening those problem areas.
You will see results in as little as four (4) treatments as you will leave feeling slimmer and tighter. This treatment is best used contouring and toning your circumferential and cellulite areas. It’s a cumulative result so one needs to be patient.
The best part of VelaShape is there is no down time and no significant discomfort. The VelaShape technology combines infrared light with bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum – which deep heats the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and underlying dermal collagen fibers.
The heat and vacuum stimulate growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume and overall improvement of skin structure and texture.
VelaShape is not a weight loss program and there is no diet or restrictions – but you may choose to change some habits now that you really have lost that midsection. This is meant to contour your body, to reduce the trouble spots that diet and exercise have not been able to erase.
