Military Lipo in Norcross, GA
As a member of the US Armed Forces, you are required to maintain an unsurpassed level of physical fitness. The Pentagon determines specific tests that you must pass in order to be promoted and advanced your military career. One of the most challenging is the “tape test” that is used to calculate your body fat. If you are a member of the military who struggles with meeting the exacting specifications of the tape test, Graceful Contours in Norcross, Georgia, can help! Our liposuction treatments are recommended for military personnel inAlpharetta, Atlanta, Brookhaven, Buckhead, Cumming, Dunwoody, Johns Creek, Gwinnett, Roswell, and Sandy Springs.
Beat the “Tape Test” with Liposuction
Our military personnel meet rigorous physical fitness requirements to ensure that they can carry out their duties both at home and abroad. One of the tests used to determine your fitness level is the “tape test.” The test is based upon measurements of areas of your body that are then used to calculate a body fat level. If you fail the test, you may lose the opportunity to be promoted and advanced your career.
Unfortunately, many of our soldiers are unable to pass the “tape test.” The Journal of Military Medicine reports that 35% of our male soldiers do not meet the weight requirements set by the Pentagon. Further, 6% of male and female soldiers do not meet the standards for body fat, and from 1992 to 2007, approximately 24,000 soldiers were discharged from the U.S. Army for failing to meet weight requirements.
Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez understand the value of our soldiers, and they offer liposuction procedures to help men and women in the Armed Forces meet the required body fat standards. Best of all, we offer military discounts and several programs to help you afford the cost of your Military Lipo procedure.

How Does Military Lipo Work?
Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez are certified liposuction specialists, so you can feel confident in the outcome and safety of the procedure. Military Lipo at Graceful Contours in Norcross, Georgia, eliminates bulges of fat using the latest liposuction technologies, such as laser and ultrasonic energy, as well as liquid solutions to ease fat removal. We will work with you to determine which technique is most appropriate for your needs. These techniques facilitate fat removal by liquefying fat cells that are then suctioned out of the treatment area with a cannula.
What Body Areas Can Be Treated With Military Lipo?
Graceful Contours in Norcross, Georgia, offers a range of liposuction treatments that are recommended for the:
- Love handles
- Lower face
How Much Fat Can Be Removed? Can Multiple Areas Be Treated at the Same Time?
Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez will only remove the amount of fat that is needed to help you pass the “tape test.” Removing too much fat will not only give you an unnatural appearance, but may also place your health in jeopardy. In many cases, multiple areas can be treated during the same appointment.

Where Is Military Lipo Performed?
Military Lipo is performed at our office in Norcross, Georgia. Our minimally-invasive liposuction procedures require only local anesthesia. You will spend a few hours in our recovery area after the procedure, and we recommend that you make arrangements for someone to take you home after you are released by Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez.
How Soon Will I See the Results? What Is the Recovery Time?
The results of our advanced liposuction procedures are immediate. You will have some minor swelling for the first three days. If you are anticipating a “tape test,” we recommend that you allow your body plenty of time to fully heal as the swelling may influence the results of the measurements. Initial recovery is approximately 3 days, after which you can resume light duties. Strenuous exercise should be avoided until you are fully healed.
What about Future Weight Gain or Fat Migrating to other Areas?
As a member of the U.S. military, you already live a healthy lifestyle that includes proper nutrition and exercise. Unfortunately, genetics can affect your tendency for gaining fat in certain areas of your body. Our Certified Health Coach, Rhonda Thomas, can help you find ways to augment your physical fitness regimen to reduce the likelihood of gaining body fat after your liposuction procedure.
How Can I Be Certain That Military Lipo Is Right for Me?

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez to find out if liposuction at Graceful Contours is right for you.
