My commitment to a holistic approach means that I consult with every one of my patients, working closely with them to learn about their cosmetic goals, their personal aspirations, and the issues that brought them to my practice in the first place. This enables me to offer a level of procedural customization that sets my results apart from my peers, addressing cosmetic issues with precision and elegance in equal measure.
Is the patient carrying fat disproportionately throughout their body?
Twenty years ago I was featured on The Today Show with the perfect candidate for liposuction: an 18 year old, 110 pound patient—sounds unreasonable, but bear with me. The patient's mother was also on the show, and both mother and daughter shared a genetic disproportion of a thin, bony upper body, with large outer thigh “saddlebags” that were significantly disproportionate to the rest of the body. This is an example of the perfect liposuction patient: regardless of weight fluctuations, the areas of disproportion do not change. These are the areas of fat that are stubborn and do not change regardless of diet or exercise.
