laser and lipo
An_249550 posted:
I heard on Dr OZ about resurfacing the skin after liposuction, to reduce the flab sometimes left after the fat is removed. Is this new? Is this done always with lipo, or are only special doctors doing the combination? Any help?
Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
Dear An,

Laser resurfacing is a great adjunct to lipo or other skin tightening procedures. It can not only tighten the small amount of flab left over, but also overall stimulate and rejuvenate the skin.

I highly recommend it!

Find a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist doing both and you will be so happy.

I hope that helps
