Last Friday we had the honor of training plastic surgeons from Japan in the use of lasers for improving the outcomes of liposuction. We developed most of the protocols for safe and effective laser lipolysis that are now used by physicians from around the world. This advanced method of body contouring improves the contour of the body by not only removing unwanted fat but also tightening the overlying skin. It has become an alternative for many of our patients who would like to avoid a general anesthetic and have a single procedure done in an office setting that will produce consistent pleasant outcomes. Like any get together with the Japanese of course there was lots of picture taking so I thought I would include one.
