Nips and Tucks and Sit-ups

Sometimes, a little nipping and tucking is the best way to overcome the changes that have occurred over time. Yes, we can diet, and we gain a lot from eating healthy. The body also benefits from a good workout several days a week. However, if you’re one who struggles to get that midsection tight and […]

Baggy skin after Coolsculpting?

The amount of adipose tissue removed following Coolsculpting depends on many characteristics. Age, muscle mass, prior surgeries, diet and over all health. If the fat is reduced and the patient has stretched out skin from prior pregnancies or massive weight gain then it is highly unlikely that the tissue will contract back once the fat […]


Non Invasive Body Sculpting

Non surgical fat reduction technology has exploded. While the most definitive treatment is a tummy tuck, liposuction helps to reduce the greatest amount of fat. For the non surgical treatments Coolsculpting has a 4 year track record with millions of patients treated. The latest innovation in non invasive treatments is the SculpSure treatment. Each is […]


Breast Reduction works

We are pursuing a research project which has been approved by our Investigational Review Board at the hospital, looking at the benefits of breast reduction not only on neck and back pain but also on Hand, Shoulder and Arm function. We have a patient who calculated that she had spent over 40,000 dollars over the […]


If you shop at Lane Bryant, is Coolsculpting for You?

Patients who have excess adipose tissue are candidates for Coolsculpting. The challenge is that with multiple treatments to reduce the thickness of layers of fat with the coolsculpting, the stretched out skin may pose another problem. This excess skin is optimally removed with a tummy tuck procedure. This does not preclude a patient from having […]


Drainless tummy tuck

Tummy tuck surgery removes the loose skin and excess fat from the abdominal wall. Maneuvers to minimize post operative fluid drainage include but are not limited to minimizing cautery, use of quilting sutures and preservation of the scarpa fascia level which has abundant lymphatic drainage to the groin. Concomitant liposuction can be safely combined with […]


Drainless tummy tuck

Drainless tummy tuck is not just a traditional tummy tuck performed without the use of drains. Specific techniques with either quilting sutures or sparing the scarpas fascia which has the most lymphatic drainage tissue in the abdominal wall deep to the skin. By preserving the scarpas fascia the bodies own internal drainage system can absorb […]


PAH!! What to do?

Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia is a vexing and unusual sequela following Coolsculpting. While the incidence of this is very rare, with the treatments of Coolsculpting getting into the millions it is understandable why more cases are being reported. I have heard of cases from other physicians and even had a patient myself who was well documented […]


Medial thighs are tough

The skin overlying the medial thighs is very thin. When we perform medial thighplasty procedures the scars are an issue and often lead us to seek out other treatments which may result in sub optimal results. In the case of Coolsculpting consider combination treatments with other heat based therapies as an adjunct or even a replacement. Post […]


Tummy tuck recovery

There are 3 kinds of tummy tucks and each type is indicated for a different body type. A patient who has excess skin and even stretch marks from pregnancy with excess fat on her abdomen will do very well with a FULL tummy tuck. A patient who has only a small amount of excess loose skin […]
