What’s So Crazy About LocoLipo?

What makes LocoLipo so crazy is its knack for redefining sensual contours and sculpting away unwanted fat. Age brings wisdom. Age brings patience. And age brings stubborn, unwanted fat. Sure, aerobic exercises and daily spin classes paired with a Paleo diet can shed a few pounds. Who hasn’t tried a fad diet at least once? But believe us, diet and exercise don’t always get a snatched waist or set of washboard abs. 

Besides diet and exercise, others have turned to traditional liposuction to address stubborn fat. However, traditional liposuction’s limited capabilities produce limited results, period. So, how can you lose unwanted fat easily and instantly? LocoLipo’s advanced technology and design let Dr. Robert Bonillas clap back against fat, leaving behind tighter, sexier contours. Waists are snatched, abs are on fleek, and that ex is left on read. After LocoLipo, you get to write your own story. If you would like to experience the loco results for yourself, schedule a consultation at our Scottsdale offices. Here, we will understand your vibe and configure a comprehensive treatment plan to achieve your desired results. To reach our offices directly, please call us at (480) 245-6380

The History of Liposuction

Liposuction Scottsdale

To understand why LocoLipo is superior to other forms of liposuction, we have to understand the pitfalls of traditional methods. So, put on that grad cap, ‘cause we’re about to learn something new today. Long before Instagram influencers and fitness models set the standard, people have been trying to get that slim figure. That’s right: a snatched waist has had its moment before. But, earlier surgeons didn’t have the right tools. A French surgeon by the name of Charles Durjarrier removed subcutaneous fat tissue (that’s fat under the skin) from a dancer’s calves and knees.[1] But, it took a couple of advances before results became slay-worthy. For example, in the 70s, two other French gentlemen, Arpad and Giorgio Fischer, developed the modern technique of liposuction.[2] This father and son surgeon duo created a thin tube, called a cannula, that suctions out fat cells from under the skin. Now, this tool made slimmer curves and tighter contours, but it did so at the risk of excessive blood loss, lengthy surgeries, and prolonged recoveries. To keep it 100, results were usually mid anyhow. 

That’s where LocoLipo takes the mic. LocoLipo uses the safest, most refined advances in liposuction to incite anyone’s glow-up. The advances that make LocoLipo so effective include tumescent fluid and VASER technology

Tumescent Fluid

A dermatologist in the golden state of California created a tumescent fluid in 1987. This solution contains lidocaine for pain, saline for swelling fat cells, and epinephrine for constricting blood vessels. Tumescent fluid helps us extract more of those pesky fat cells, minimize blood loss, and curb the effects of surgical trauma. Tumescent fluid has shown to[3]

  • Enhance results
  • Minimize pain and discomfort
  • Reduce bruising and swelling
  • Make recovery quicker

VASER Liposuction

In the past, basic surgeons couldn’t extract enough fat from the target areas. So, patients were left with underwhelming results. Like we said, these results were mid. To fix this, expert surgeons developed VASER technology. Time to switch focus, chicos. Trade that grad cap in for a lab coat. We’re talking science now. Standing for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, VASER uses ultrasound technology to dislodge fat cells from their connective tissues. Think of how the vibrations from an earthquake shake away loose rocks. That’s what’s happening under your skin as the VASER device passes through the subcutaneous tissue. The vibrations permeate through the fat cells and shake them loose. With the fat cells free from their connective tissue, they are now easier to reach with an aspirating cannula. This technology allows for more targeted fat extraction and no damage to surrounding areas.[4]

What Makes LocoLipo Loco?

So, what makes LocoLipo so loco? The combination of tumescent fluid and VASER technology allows Dr. Bonillas to

Define Contours Better 

Since its creation, VASER has been called the “overnight abs” procedure. VASER technology lets Dr. Bonillas strip the fat away from individual muscles to expose better muscular definition. Also, when treated with tumescent fluid, even more fat is extracted. So, results are compounded. LocoLipo is so loco, in part, because it offers supremely better results than other less-loco procedures. 

Less Downtime

After your procedure, the last thing you want is to be laid up in bed recovering. No, you want to be out there strutting your stuff, making that ex jealous and that new boo left wanting more. The combination of tumescent fluid and VASER minimizes downtime by minimizing tissue trauma. Since the fatty tissue is swollen already and dislodged from its connective tissue, all Dr. Bonillas has to do is suction it out of the body. So, you will have less swelling, less bruising, and less time laying in bed. 

Who Is LocoLipo for?

LocoLipo is for any person with stubborn unwanted fat around their

  • Abdomen 
  • Love handles 
  • Bra line
  • Pelvic area
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Chest

As we get older, we all have unwanted fat. So, we turn to the most logical, most advertised first step: diet and exercise. But, take it from most of our clients, diet and exercise often lead to disheartening results that have taken too much time to get. If this sounds too much like your story, LocoLipo is for you. But, please know that LocoLipo is not a weight loss surgery but a body contouring procedure. You need to be at a healthy, stable weight before your surgery. You’re going to want to have healthy habits in place so that results can stay. 

So, What’s The First Step?

The first step is to schedule a one-on-one with Dr. Bonillas. Here, we will escort you to your very own private consultation room. Then, we will learn about your desired results. We’ll note your unwanted fatty areas and decide if you are right for LocoLipo. Then, Dr. Bonillas will put together a treatment plan designed for achieving your ideal figure. Honey, whether that be a snatched waist, shredded abs, or thinner thighs, Dr. Bonillas will tailor the LocoLipo procedure to you.

Preparing for LocoLipo

Before you go loco, its best to

  • Don’t take any blood-thinning medications like aspirin or Advil. These will work against the tumescent fluid and cause excessive bleeding. If you are prescribed a blood thinner, keep it 100 with your healthcare provider before discontinuing. 
  • Stop vaping or using any other nicotine products. Nicotine will also work against the tumescent fluid and interrupt the body’s healing response.
  • Squad up. Have a trusted bestie take you home from your procedure. 
  • Let the boss know. Be ready to take a couple of days off from your daily routine. This includes work, strenuous activities, and other demanding tasks.


After your LocoLipo, your treated areas will be wrapped in a compression garment. This wrap is used to help enhance the healing process. Continue to avoid blood-thinning medication. We will prescribe you the necessary medication for any pain or discomfort. Please do not sleep on the treated areas and allow the sutures to remain in place and heal. 

Looking For A Boost?

Dr. Bonillas takes the extracted fat, purifies it, and relocates it under the skin around the butt. He massages the fat so it’s even and projected.
