"I had three kids and from those kids it gave me a huge protruding tummy. I work out on a regular basis and no matter how much I work out I could not get rid of my fat stomach and love handles. I heard about Laser Lipo on the news and decided to schedule a consultation with a doctor.
I did not stop there I continued to research and found American Lipo Centers. From the moment I walked in the door and met the doctor and his staff, I felt comfortable and confident about the outcome of the procedure.
The procedure went great. I could hardly believe that it was not painful. I was surprised at how good I felt and looked. My abdomen felt sore, but I felt OK. After the procedure I went out to eat and to work the next day. I still cannot believe a procedure like this really works without surgery. When I look in the mirror and at the results, I finally can see a flat stomach I am 100% satisfied with the results and the level of care I received from the Doctor and his staff. The wildest thing about this is you are awake during the procedure, there was no bruising for me, and you see the results immediately. And again, thank you to the staff and the doctor for making me have so much confidence in myself and no more low self-esteem about my stomach and if I was to do it again American Lipo Center is the place to go. Again, all thanks. "

" Today, October 6th, 2011, I came in for my four week follow up ten pounds lighter. I love how I feel! I'm wearing jeans from high school. Siting down with room in your waist line feels great! I am so glad I decided to get laser lipo on my entire stomach.
Before I had the procedure, I asked: "Will it hurt? Is it worth it? Will it get infected? How much scarring? Do the benefits out weigh the possible risks?" The surgery wasn't painful, a few pinches but not bad. It is worth it! I feel great, more comfortable, and lots more confident. The "scarring" isn't really existent. There are two small spots I notice and they're really fading. In my opinion, the benefits out weigh the "possible" risks. My recovery time was fast, not a sign of infection, and the minimal bruising healed in a week.
I couldn't be happier with the results. I feel so much better about myself, it's indescribable. I'm a huge researcher and I thought about it for a few years. I think the most important thing is having the right doctor. Dr. Segev is a gentleman and a scholar! He did a great job and never made me feel uncomfortable. During the process, he made sure it was even and kept note of my comfort. Dr. Segev is very cautious in preparing for the surgery, during and after. I can't say I'd give the same testimony if I'd gone to someone else. I hope another person can experience this joy as I have. Dr. Segev is FIVE STARS in my book, and the staff is outstanding!"
Dear Doctor and Staff,
I would be remised if I did not take a few minutes to tell you how thrilled I am with the procedure. When I entered your office, for my appointment, I was somewhat hesitant and not quite sure, if I would see the results that I was looking for, however, after meeting and talking with the doctor, I was put at ease. I found you to be genuine and honest and when you told me: 'if you felt I was not a successful candidate for the procedure, you would not do it;' after hearing those comments, I found my tension level go down.
To make my story short, a month after the procedure, I find myself delighted with the new/improved ME. I am getting a lot of looks, winks, and you know..indications that I am looking good !!!!
I would also like to thank your staff, I cannot single one person out, because I found everyone to be caring, and professional and attentive to my needs.
Thank you, thank you!
I am a very satisfied patient.

"My experience was great. I rescheduled my appointment 3 times because of nerves; but Myia was always there to help calm them. On the day of my procedure Carolina explained everything and made me so at ease; then when Dr. Segev came in he was just as pleasant. We spent the whole procedure talking about sports and that was really comforting and helped me to relax. My post-op release instructions were great and easy to follow and I had upper and lower abs done on Friday was back to work Monday. "
I highly recommend American Lipo Centers.
"Let me start off by saying this is first time I've had any cosmetic procedure done, because until now I thought Lipo was mostly for Women, but I was wrong! It works for men as well and I am proof. It's been almost 1 week since my procedure and I am still swollen and bruised, although as the swelling subsides, I am seeing the results that I expected and wanted. So far I am very happy and I've even told my friends, and based on my recommendation, one friend is having his procedure done next week. I must be honest, at first I was very skeptical and nervous, but the staff at American Lipo Centers made me feel confident and "at home!"
So far, it's been worth every penny and I am very happy with the results, the follow-up, and helpfulness of the staff and the concern of the doctor.
I am so excited to see what the final results will be! Look out summer, HERE I COME!"
"I am a 55 year old women who recently had liposuction done to my abdomen, and sides, and I cannot begin to tell you how EXTREMELY happy I am with my results. After several years of fighting a 25 lbs weight gain from taking pain medication, I began to notice that my joints and knees were becoming uncomfortable, and not only that, I was totally dissatisfied in the way I looked. I realized that I needed to start exercising or I was basically stuck with this weight unless I did something about it. I started walking and running three miles a day and after several months, the weight started coming off. I continued to exercise every day for a year incorporating light weight lifting and watching what I ate. I continued to lose weight, however, I could not get rid of the fat around my waist and stomach area! I decided to give lipo suction a try. I was a little nervous, but I made up my mind that I was going to go for it!
I scheduled a consultation with the doctor and he was very understanding and congratulated me for losing weight. I felt very comfortable with the doctor and his staff. I arrived for the procedure that afternoon a little nervous. The doctor explained what he was going to do and to let him know if I felt any discomfort. I was numbed in the middle area the majority of the time, I did not feel any discomfort. The few times that I did feel some discomfort, the doctor did his best to make me feel comfortable. His warm and caring personality made me feel that I was in good hands. The procedure took about 2 hours and I was awake the entire time.
The hardest part for me in the entire process was the first few days at home. I had some bruising and swelling and I healed quickly in the days that past. It took about one month before I noticed the amazing results! I was my old self again down from a size 14 to a 12! I would do it all over again! Thanks to the doctor, I feel younger and I continue to exercise with confidence in how I look and feel. Many thanks to the kind and reassuring staff!"
"When I decided to get laser liposuction, I went in with less than high expectations as there seems to be so much hype over lasers these days until you find out that you need 10 treatments for minimal results. I must say that I have been absolutely astonished with the results that I have gotten. I am a 32 year old male who ended up with that dreaded spare tire, love handles as well as the lower belly fat that no amount of running would seem to get rid of. This procedure most certainly did!
I will say that after the initial drainage (less than 1 day) there is some discomfort especially when sitting too long or sleeping so be prepared to wake up a few times a night. That being said, my belly and love handles are GONE and my stomach is flatter than it was when I was 25! My skin has retightened from wearing the compression garment as outlined by the doctor and I feel amazing. I did wear the outer garment over my shirt when driving or sitting in my office chair for added comfort in addition to the 12 hrs at night.
Let me also say that the doctor and staff were very friendly, didn't pressure me at all and took the time to make sure that EVERY question I had was answered to my satisfaction. The price was far better than most local clinics which seemed to push volume thru their clinics and I had a hard time getting questions answered. This clinic is small and intimate. I was even provided with the doctor's personal cell phone number should I have any questions after hours during my recovery process.
I would highly recommend using this doctor for anyone in the D.C. metro. I can't convey enough my overwhelming satisfaction with not only the excellent results, but the care and friendliness of staff. Thanks again!"

"Just wanted to let you know how pleased to have found you again at American Lipo Centers! I continue to be "wowed" with my results and how much more self esteem you have helped me achieve.
As you know, I had traditional liposuction on my inner thighs over 15 years ago that had left me with sagging skin and forced me to wear clothing that hid everything above my knees. When we first talked I was skeptical, but very hopeful that laser lipo could help correct and tighten this skin. Today, I am so thankful that you performed the laser lipo on my inner thighs! While I realized my skin will never be as tight as nature had given me as a teen, I am happily wearing shorts and skirts that show off my new thighs, much to my husband's delight as well.
The laser lipo you performed on my abdomen, outer thighs, arms and chin is remarkable; I have a waist and nice facial profile again! My sister was so amazed at my transformation by your skill with laser lipo that she also had you trim her abdomen. She looks like a sculpted model now. I am thankful for the great care and skill you utilized to help return her curvy, tight, sexy body to her that has boosted her self-esteem so much.
Having found you again, I am trusting you again today with my youngest "baby" daughter. Yes, she is 27, but always my baby, even as she has laser lipo with you today in preparation for her spring wedding. As I sit here in the waiting room while you sculpt her body, I am excited to see her results and confident that she is safe in your professional and skilled hands.
Laser lipo and your sculpting skills with the tool have help change my family. I am no longer ashamed or embarrassed by my body, my self-esteem has soared. As I enter his phase of my life where my daughters are grown and getting married, you have helped me feel so much more confident, sexy, womanly, and happy. I now look forward to dress shopping and all that comes with having grown children as well as all the personal shopping and intimacy with my husband that comes with this time in my life. Thank you! "
"The procedure that I had done was very good. There was very little discomfort and the doctor paid great attention to detail. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They kept in contact with me to see how I was feeling after the procedure. The environment was very calming and extremely clean which was great.
The doctor was wonderful during my consultation he addressed all of my needs. During the procedure I was impressed with how he would look from different results to ensure that I would end up with great results. I would highly recommend that anyone who is looking for a professional concerned doctor -- use him.
The staff was excellent paid great attention to detail, sent me card, which I found to be very impressive. When I called to ask any questions they responded quickly and told me what to expect. Carolina [the clinic's LPN] was in my procedure; she was very comforting and wanted to make sure that I was comfortable. They both were great.
I am pleased with the results. I can see the difference and have gotten many compliments and request for who performed the services."
"I wanted to have laser lipo done because my stomach was big and I tried to lose it with exercising and was not successful. I just wanted the fat removed. I had a wonderful experience at American Lipo Centers. The staff was very informative about the procedure and the Doctor was very nice and answered all my questions. I am very, very pleased with my results. My children were able to notice a difference in my stomach."
"I Love the results! I had a lot of areas done. Very happy with the results and I pray I can continue to exercise and eat healthy. Thank you!"
- M. E.
"I am SOOOOO EXCITED AND HAPPY THAT I GOT YOUR PROCEDURE DONE!!!! My body is starting to take shape with the swelling going down...It is still pretty bruised up but I LOVE THE RESULTS SO FAR......I just ordered 4 bikini bathing suits for my trip to Mexico in Feb. I am so excited and want to thank you all VERY MUCH!!! Please let The Doctor know also and I hope you all have a WONDERFUL HOLIDAY!!! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!"

"The 'pooch' in my abdomen is gone and a natural curve is in its place; the layer of fat that made my athletic legs look less than toned, has now disappeared. I have legs that look like the fit woman I am. I didn't have to starve myself to work off weight in targeted areas and end up losing it in other places that I wanted to keep. My diet is excellent and I exercise in moderation, but I feel great about my body again without a sense that all my efforts are in vain."

"I researched laser lipo online for about a month before I started calling local clinics for consultations. With each phone call to a different clinic, I was left frustrated and doubtful of the clinic's sensitivity for what I was looking forâ€¦ and then I called American Lipo. With multiple locations at their service, I had a consultation appointment in person within a week. During the initial meeting with the doctor, my doubts were put at ease when he took the time to discuss the possibilities of negative results due to my unique build and medical past. I felt like a person and not just a client... before, during, and even after my procedure. I can confidently say that the employees at American Lipo are not there just for business, but they believe in changing peoples lives, and I thank each one of them for changing mine."
"I came in for my procedure a month ago and the staff was truly amazing. I was provided with the best customer service, and everything was explained in great detail and all questions were answered. During my surgery, the nurse literally held my hand from start to finish. This was a great experience, and I appreciate the staff very much. I highly recommend American Lipo Centers to anyone seeking cosmetic surgery with great service, friendly faces and accuracy."
Estoy muy contenta con el resultado obtenido atraves de la operación. El Dr. Segev es un autentico profesional y sabe lo que hace. Las asistentes y todo el personal son fabulosos. Si deseas dar algún tipo de retoque a tu cuerpo, este es el camino a seguir!"
"From day one, American Lipo Centers was very helpful and customer service savy. From setting up the consultation appointment up to the present moment for the follow up. During the actual procedure there was minimal pain. Both the Doctor and his assistant ensured I was comfortable and eliminated any fears I might have experienced. Upon completion of the procedure I saw significant changes. I was extremely happy with the outcome and the current progress I am making. I am excited and anxiously awaiting the end results but more excited to see the daily improvements of the upper and lower abs laser lipo".
"After many years of exercising and doing many sit-ups and not achieving the results I wanted, on March 9, 2012 I decided to have laser lipo performed on my upper/lower abs, flanks and bra area. I was a little nervous but Dr. Segev and his staff made my experience worth having them done. I was worried about any discomfort but that ended up being minimal. I was up doing things within 48 hrs. It's been 6 wks and I am very happy with my results so far. I highly recommend Dr. Segev and have been spreading the word. Thanks Dr. Segev for helping me on my way and Carolina for holding my hand:-) "
“I have never been happier with my body until now. I have been on a journey to lose weight but sometimes it’s hard to target the areas you want. And when I was losing weight I was losing my curves too :(. When I searched online I came across American Lipo Centers and was amazed at all the great reviews. Once I reached out I got a quick response and my consultation was scheduled. The staff was wonderful. They answered all my questions and the day of the procedure they made the experience pleasant for me. Dr. Segev, Carolina, Myia, and Mimi made me feel like at home. At first I was worried about the recovery phase but it was quick and easy. I have received many compliments and would recommend this place to anyone. My before and after pictures were amazing. I got my curves back!”
“I have had the best experience with Dr. Segev and his team. I work out or jog 3 to 5 times a week and am pretty content with my body - however, I couldn't get rid of my belly and flanks. I researched possible options and found American Lipo Centers. They were the fastest to respond to questions, give me an estimate, and schedule a free consultation. Dr. Segev, Myia, Caroline, and Mimi were wonderful! They answer questions, make you feel good, and are always there for you! Within a short time I made up my mind and had my lower abdomen and flanks 'done'. It hurt more than I expected, I will not lie about this, but the pain afterwards was minimal! I was at home for a day or two, then went back to work. I started working out a week later and I feel and look great! I am so glad I went to Dr. Segev and his beautiful team! Thanks, guys:)”
“I love my new hourglass shape. Dr. Segev did a wonderful job. The staff was also very pleasant and answered all questions. I am 30 years old and will be wearing my first bikini ever for my upcoming birthday!”
"I am truly thankful for Dr. Segev & staff. I had liposuction of the upper/lower abs & flanks. Carolina, Mya, & Mimi made the process very easy & are incredibly knowledgable! Dr. Segev was amazing during the procedure & eased my anxiety. Although I'm still a bit swollen at this time (6 weeks), the results are amazing. My tummy is flat and I have an hourglass figure. I'm back in the gym & looking forward seeing the final results in a few months. I would recommend, hands down!"
"Everything went perfectly. I had a question the Sunday after my procedure, called Dr. Segev, and he gave me the information I needed. The staff was friendly. The pain was minimal and I am extremely pleased with my results!"
"The staff was very professional, approachable, and understanding about my hectic work schedule. Carolina put me at eased while I was having the procedure. Dr. Segev was excellent and I had very minimal bruising afterwards. If you can see the before and after picture of me - its like MAGIC!!! poof fat gone!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Segev and his team at Laser Lipo (Alexandria, VA). Who knows I might be back soon.... Thank you."
"I am very pleased with the amazing results and high level of customer service that I received from American Lipo Centers. The staff was very courteous and went the extra mile to accommodate any and all questions and concerns I had regarding the procedure. I was especially happy to learn that a staffer had actually had the laser lipo procedure performed, and she was able to provide me with a firsthand account of what to expect. Dr. Segev and Carolina handled me with the utmost of care during the procedure, ensuring that I was comfortable and at ease."
Stop Wondering, IF you should go - GO! Doctor Segev is a miracle worker! It was as if he touched me and the fat fell off! The staff that works with Dr. Segev: Myia, Carolina and Mimi are excellent! Your privacy is your privacy! You are among friends, truly! I vowed never to get that sort of work done...too instructive and the fear of something going wrong was always with me. In one visit with Dr. Segev, Myia, Carolina and Mimi, my entire world changed for the better!
If you are on the borderline, I am a person that can understand that issue. I was on that 'BORDERLINE' until the day of my 1st procedure! Had my abdomen done. Yes, it was so easy and effective (my abs look GREAT), that at the 6 week check up on my abdomen, I scheduled my 2nd appointment for my thighs! Remember, this is coming from a person that thought Hell would freeze over before I would get something like this done....Thank Goodness common sense prevailed! The price of the procedures are not even an issue...great, reasonable prices - that you will see, are inexpensive in comparison to your results!!!
You're asking how I got pass the hesitation I had - Dr. Segev!!! The confidence he had in knowing he could help me and more importantly, he has an OUTSTANDING track record! All you have to do is a bit of research Ladies. Yet, I've done that for you. He has done over a 1000 procedures! No significant issues with any, no fatalities, no injuries - NOTHING - clean bill of health. I have never and I do me never been put in a better mental state in my life....and now I am in the BEST physical shape! I went from a size 16 to a size 10......(I worked out too Ladies, so normally it is only a 2 size reduction).... Yes, I wore my garment like it was going to save my life. I went from looking like I was 5 months pregnant to flat abs, YES, I AM SCREAMING - FLAT ABS Ladies! With the second procedure, my thighs can NOW get into clothes, I'd never imagined.
How can I say this....Thank God, Thank Goodness, I found Dr. Segev and his TEAM! You all ROCK! I never knew that these procedures really work! Thought it was all smoke and mirrors to get on board the make money train, BUT it is NOT! It works, it really works!! You must follow the aftercare procedures and you will definitely see results. I am alive - a beautiful and sexy woman, AGAIN! Thank you to Dr. Segev and his team; seems so cheap in comparison to what they gave me, a wonderful life back!
Thank you Dr. Segev for having my back and ensuring you provided me with the details I needed to move my life/the procedure forward!!! Thank you Myia for keeping the door open and staying on me about, at least coming in to see what AMERICAN LIPO CENTER had to offer. Thank you Carolina for holding my hand during the procedures and providing me with all the extra comfort!! Thank you Mimi, for giving me a pep talk and cheerleading me to a BETTER ME!
That's not enough, it truly isn't, but these tears I shed right now referencing the happiness you have brought me, is not enough either....unfortunately, the moderate price I paid and the Thank you..sss I've provided is all I have, but know, I wish I had more to give. You have truly made me EXTREMELY HAPPY! Rockie (aka RR)
