This 44-year-old woman was bothered by extra fatty accumulations on her back and flanks. She had previously undergone CoolSculpting at another practice. Unfortunately, she was one of a small percent of patients who had actually increased growth of fat. This is also called paradoxical hyperplasia. Multiple studies have indicated the best treatment for this is power liposuction with the MicroAire device. This is what we use for routine liposuction. This woman also has congenitally a very prominent right hip. She was told it was not predictable whether we could get rid of all the skin creases since that depends on whether the skin shrinks after it is deflated with the fat removal. She had not only liposuction, but we also used the MicroAire basket device that frees up deep skin attachments. This gives the patient a greater possibility of eliminating the creases and rolls as well. She is seen five months following her surgery and for someone in her forties, the amount of skin shrinkage is very noticeable.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
