16 years ago, I started a cosmetic office focussing on minimally invasive technology-based body contouring. In a very short period of time, I was performing several procedures every day. In fact, I was doing more liposuction procedures in one month than most cosmetic surgeons performed in a year. In the process, I got very good at what I did.
I was able to learn from every case and use technology to maximize patient outcomes and minimize downtime. I was also able to discover new techniques and better ways of doing things. The reason I was able to get the results that I did was because of specialization.
Like anything else, the more you do of anything, the better you get. This is a universal truth beyond cosmetics. The way you become the best at what you do is to focus on it.
Most plastic or facial plastic surgeons do not specialize exclusively in cosmetic surgery. In order to make a living, most surgeons do a combination of insurance-based work such as managing diabetic foot ulcers and burn unit work which has nothing to do with cosmetic surgery. For this reason, although they may be skilled physicians in other ways, they may not be the best choice for your cosmetic procedure.
I am a believer in laser liposuction and I uses it in my procedures. However, I found laser liposuction alone to be somewhat limiting in the amount of fat that can be removed. Laser liposuction is good at removing small amounts of fat (such as in the neck) but is better at tightening skin. However, I wanted to be able to help more patients get even better results by removing more fat and by doing it in an even more gentle way.
We have created a place where we focus ONLY on cosmetic surgical procedures. We have hand picked highly specialized surgeons specializing in cosmetic surgery to help you get the results that you want. In addition, within our team of surgeons, there are specialists for each kind of procedure you may need.
Not only do we choose high-quality cosmetic surgeons for our team, but we also provide our surgeons access to the most cutting edge technologies that modern cosmetic surgery has to offer. The result, as I always strived for when I practiced, is the best result with the least amount of downtime.
Aqualipo® Water-jet Assisted Liposuction
In 2010, Dr. Bassin found and patented what he and many other physicians believe is the biggest breakthrough in liposuction technology in 30 years, Aqualipo®.
Until Aqualipo®, all other kinds of liposuction relied on the concept of crushing or melting fat and then sucking it away—both still somewhat traumatic.
Aqualipo®, on the other hand, uses a gentle stream of water to literally dislodge fat that is then gently washed out of the body. Aqualipo® is safer than traditional liposuction due to it being performed under local anesthesia using the tumescent technique and it is more effective at removing fat then laser liposuction alone.
We look forward to helping you achieve your goals!
