For those squeamish about surgery or short on cash, an Austin, Texas, company called Habitude is pushing its low-cost alternative, the antisurgical Lipo Kit System. Full details are at AntiSurgical.com, but briefly, the “kit” contains a large anti-lipo surgical patch; a gel that’s applied when not wearing the patch; and their special “body-slim” formula. “The antisurgical Lipo Kit works by firming, toning, smoothing the skin and activating your body's metabolism, forcing fat cells to release trapped toxins which causes fat cells to shrink. Fat is expelled by the body's natural elimination system. You will lose inches and weight,” they claim. And the cynic in us goes, “Hmmmmm.” Decide for yourself at AntiSurgical.com.
