    Dr. Cesar Lara has over 30 years of experience empowering patients to reach not only their weight goals, but achieving overall wellness through his weight loss program, Bio-Identical hormone therapy and now Formnovélle is non-invasive body contouring. Dr. Cesar Lara has been voted “Best Health Program” for 10 years! helping thousands of patients achieve their goals. Dr. Lara has introduced Formnovélle to complement the practice focusing on fat reduction in stubborn areas including abdomen, thighs, arms among other troublesome areas. Formnovélle combines optimal supplementation, nutritional guidance, lipotropic injections and advanced green light Verju laser therapy. Verju safely causes the release of fatty lipids from within the fat cells, causing them to collapse and shrink, which in turn reduces the circumference or the size of the stubborn and challenging fat accumulating areas of the body. Once the fatty lipids are released, the body uses them for energy which are ultimately excreted through the lymphatic system of the body, resulting in fat loss. It is non-invasive, no discomfort, no down time with no side effects. This therapy allows you to reduce 4”-6” in as little as 2 weeks!
