"Friendly staff, very understanding. The procedure room is clean and comfortable. I had liposuction of my inner thighs and I am so happy I went to refining beauty. I only felt a small amount of pain and discomfort but the doctor took care of that for me. I would highly recommend refining beauty."- J.C. / Google / Sep 04, 2022
"I originally started with Cross Timbers for my husband’s tonsils and allergies. Then again for my daughters tongue tie. All of these were done with Dr. Luke Shellenberger (at the Mansfield office.) In talking with the staff I found out they have a 🗣 MEDSPA at the midlothian office! The ball has not been dropped on ANY level with this practice. At the Midlothian office the receptionist Angela is on her A game ALWAYS! Dr. L is a hoot and a fantastic dr! I went in there originally for Botox. I had Becky and Rebecca in there assisting him (both nurses and fun personalities) which was VERY nice and comforting. Most medspas do NOT have nurses, some places they’re not even MA’s which is ridiculous. After Botox I started doing other things to help with my face because I didn’t want fillers, so they gave me some other options. His Medspa “guru” (as I like to call her) is nurse Rebecca. She is so informative through the whole process and aftercare. EXCELLENT bedside manner. So far I’ve done Opus (which is plasma), Clearlift, and Harmony. I haven’t been disappointed with any of these results. Below is a (creepy) picture of me with my very first treatment results. I’m making the face so you can see where the Botox worked SO well on my forehead. We are working on wrinkles, lightening my freckles/age spots, and tightening. I can’t wait to see what the end results are! We have currently started working on my HORRIBLE scars on my arms from getting Brachioplasty. They also run specials every month which I’ve taken full advantage of!! :) The only thing I wish was different would be a separate entrance for MedSpa only but, to my knowledge this part of the practice is still growing so hopefully I’ll see it in the future!"- K.W. / Google / Apr 08, 2022
"I had a wonderful experience at Refining Beauty. Rebeca is doing an excellent job every time I come in. I can’t wait for my next sessions. I highly recommend this place"- Google User / Google / Apr 01, 2022
"Over the years I have developed some abdominal and back fat that I have not been happy with and have not been able to lose with dieting. I am typically anti-plastic surgery. But I learned about laser Lipo from a friend who referred me to Dr. Leffingwell. After speaking with Dr.Jim and his staff I was more intrigued. They answered all my questions and shared with me exactly what to expect. I decided to get this procedure because it was less invasive. The procedure was exactly how they described it and it was very simple. I was out of the office in a couple of hours. The results are amazing and I wish I had done this years ago. But the timing in meeting Dr. Leffingwell and his staff couldn’t have been more perfect. This dude is very happy with the results. No more love handles for me. I can’t wait until the summer to get some sun on these new abs. Thank you Dr.Jim !"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 09, 2022
"In short, Dr. Leffingwell demonstrated why physicians are often held in high regard. His competence and manner were very reassuring under difficult circumstances. As the "on call" doctor for his partnership, he stepped up, and, within about an hour altered my anxiety level from about 8 or 9 to around 2. Without the benefit of an assistant/nurse he performed brilliantly in alleviating my post surgery (deviated septum repair...) excessive bleeding."- J. / Healthgrades / Jan 31, 2022
Fat reduction FAQs
How is fat reduction with BeautiFill done?
Fat reduction with BeautiFill is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser technology to loosen and remove fat from your body. This treatment may be carried out on the stomach, arms, thighs, flanks, and anywhere extra pockets of fat bother you. During your initial consultation at Refining Beauty, be sure to discuss your specific goals with Dr. Leffingwell so he can build a treatment plan that matches your needs.
Am I a candidate for fat reduction?
Individuals who are good candidates for laser fat reduction usually have small pockets of fat that have been unresponsive to diet and exercise. Ideal patients are also at or near their goal weight. To schedule a consultation to see if this procedure is right for you, call our office in Midlothian, TX.
How long will my results last?
Results from fat reduction with BeautiFill are usually long-lasting. Once fat cells are removed, they cannot return. However, this treatment does not prevent future weight gain, which can alter your shape. It's important to keep a stable weight to maintain your results.
