    Beyond liposuction: Fat melting, skin tightening combos

    Fat melting has become a melting pot of procedures for many physicians experienced in the art and science of body sculpting.

    Dr. EmerBeverly Hills, Calif., dermatologic surgeon Jason Emer, M.D., says his practice revolves around using combination therapies to define and enhance patient bodies. And with a pallet of fat melting and skin tightening options available to enhance liposuction’s results, it’s rare that he’ll perform liposuction alone on a patient, he says.

    Marie N. DiLauro, M.D., a cosmetic surgeon and board-certified laser specialist who owns and operates a cosmetic medical practice that specializes in liposuction and liposculpture in Columbus, Ohio, also says it’s rare that she’ll use liposuction alone. 

    Dr. DiLauro“In the past, patients who were overweight or had an excess of fat in a few areas wanted these areas of fat reduced with liposuction. Today’s patients are more health conscious, tend to exercise and work out more [and] may be at their ideal weight but want to appear healthy, fit and more muscular,” Dr. DiLauro says. “In the past decade, liposuction has evolved to address these patients’ needs and desires. Today’s liposuction surgeons perform detailed precision sculpting to accentuate curves and muscle definition and, then, add selective fat transfer as needed to create a more curvaceous figure for a woman, and a more muscular chiseled look or physique for a man.”
