Liposuction Specialists

   Usually these defects need a combination of liposuction of fat grafting for correction.  Find the plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of liposuction and fat grafting procedures each year.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Methods of Correction

One can make these deformities "better", key word is better but not completely corrected. Usually you have to perform microliposuction using the fine cannulas usually reserved for facial liposculpting. In addition one may have to do fat grafting to minimize the irregularities..... in other words, multiple modalities. Best advise.... avoid the so called superior methods such as Vaser or Smart (laser) lipo. These methods have caused more deformities than the so called "traditional old fashion liposuction.

Hope this helps.

Finding Surgeon for Liposuction?

I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.

Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices  concentrate on aesthetic surgery. Ask  to see lots of examples of their work and preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.

You will find,  while doing your due diligence,  that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you;  again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  

I hope this helps.
