Dr. Mir Joffrey – President

Dr. Mir Joffrey, president of the learned tumescent liposuction from Dr. Klein, the inventor of this field. Since this time, he’s continued to learn new techniques and advance liposuction technology himself. Not only did Dr. Joffrey study the micro-cannula technique invented by Dr. Klein, but he also made a name for himself as a leader in SmartLipo. Recently, Dr. Joffrey trademarked the WaterLipo® procedure that physicians around the world refer to as “the most important advancement in liposuction technology in 30 years”. Today, Dr. Joffrey provides instruction to physicians around the world on laser assisted liposuction techniques for the Sciton Aesthetic Laser Company.

Who is a good WaterLipo candidate?

The ideal candidate for liposuction is an adult who:

  • Is within 30% of their ideal weight.
  • Has localized fatty deposits on the abdomen, flanks, hips back, legs, arms, or neck. These fatty deposits should be diet and exercise-resistant.
  • Has good elasticity to the skin in the target area(s).
  • Has good muscle tone in the target area(s).
  • Does not smoke.

Which body areas can be treated with Lipo?

We have many advanced plastic surgery tools and techniques at our disposal . We use these tools to help patients get rid of body fat that just don’t respond to efforts at dieting and exercise. And we also use special tools to tighten and contour skin in the targeted areas of the body. By using a combination of the latest, most advanced liposuction techniques, we help patients achieve the best results possible. We slim, tone, and contour the body to create a balanced, proportional physique that capitalizes on each patient’s natural beauty.

Almost any area of the body can be treated using liposuction, but there are certain, popular areas of the body that we treat regularly including the abdomen, chest, love handles, back, thighs, arms, and face. Our doctors have the knowledge and experience to help patients decide what type of liposuction would be best for them depending on their body type and goals.

Back Lipo

Lipo areas - back

Excess fat in the back region can cause all kinds of cosmetic issues. Both men and women have trouble with back fat. But we have many skilled plastic surgery professionals who are specialized in removing fat from the following areas of the back:

  • Back Flanks/Love Handles: This is the area located on the lower back around the waistline.
  • Upper Back:This area of the body includes the shoulder blades near the armpits.
  • Lumbo Sacrois: This is a pad of excess fat located in the lower part of the back. It is situated just above the tailbone.
  • Bra Pads/Bra Strap Area: This is the area between the waist and shoulder blades. It’s an area where fat tends to bulge when the patient wears a bra.

Thigh Lipo

Thigh fat is particularly resistant to diet and exercise. To remove excess fat and tighten up the skin in the thighs, we use liposuction and several other sophisticated tools to tighten the skin and optimize the overall results. Patients who wish to have their entire thigh treated with liposuction usually have the procedure done in steps to reduce recovery time. We treat the following areas of the thighs:

  • Outer thighs (also known as the saddlebags)
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees
  • Anterior thighs (front of the thighs)
  • Hips

Abdominal Lipo

The abdomen is a common problem area. Fat in the abdomen is particularly resistant to diet and exercise, but despite this, many of our patients have remarkably strong abdominal muscles or even a six-pack hidden underneath all those stubborn layers of fat. By applying specialized liposuction techniques and procedures, we can highlight the musculature of the abdomen by removing excess fat and tightening the overlying skin.

Women who have gone through pregnancy often find it difficult to remove excess stomach fat. Liposuction can help them restore their body to a pre-pregnancy state.

Arm Lipo

Toning the upper arms (biceps), is often much easier than toning the underarms (triceps). Our patients often seek out treatment for floppy underarms  we have the tools and techniques to get rid of arm fat quickly and easily. In addition to removing fat from this part of the body, we can also tighten the skin and contour the overall appearance of the arms to create a firm, slender look.

Which are the most popular Lipo Techniques?

We offer a variety of different liposuction techniques to our patients. The most popular techniques that we use regularly to achieve outstanding outcomes are listed below:

Laser Lipo

Laser assisted liposuction technologies are used to melt fat and make it easier to remove it from the body. By melting the fat first before removing it from the body, we’re able to use very tiny cannulas for the suctioning process. And the lasers cause collagen fibers to proliferate which enhances the elasticity of the skin in areas targeted with this technique.

During laser liposuction, the target area is numbed using a local anesthetic. Then, a tiny cannula is inserted just under the skin with a laser light attached to it. Using the cannula, a laser beam is directed at fatty deposits to melt the fats, but the laser also helps reduce bleeding and swelling in the target area. This technique can be used on almost any area of the body with excess fat. It is particularly suited for targeting gynecomastia (male chest) fat tissues.

Waterlipo™

We use Waterlipo™ technologies regularly with patients because this technique is faster and safer. In this technique, a high-pressure water jet is sprayed at fat cells to loosen them before suctioning them from the body. There are a number of benefits of using this special technology including dynamic results*, a smoother final result, and a shorter recovery period.

Power Assisted Lipo

Power assisted liposuction is performed using a special tool that provides spinning rotation attached to the end of a liposuction cannula. The power assisted tool is hooked up to an electric motor or compressed air to provide the spinning rotation that makes this surgical technique so quick and efficient at getting amazing results.

Can multiple Lipo techniques be combined?

We offer multiple liposuction technologies under one roof. This adds a lot of value to the services we offer because our specialized knowledge of this wide array of high-tech options in liposuction allows us to customize treatment plans for our patients. While many other doctors are only able to offer SmartLipo™ or one other kind of liposuction technology to their patients and a one-size-fits-all approach, we offer a full line-up of options that we apply specifically to different areas of the body to accomplish specific tasks. Our treatment plans are fully customized and designed specifically to accomplish the patient’s goals.

Most liposuction clinics do not have the technological undergirding that we’ve developed. We have special tools and techniques to remove excess fat deposits using the least invasive methods possible. And we have technologies such as Skin Tyte™ (recently featured on the show “The Doctors”) to tighten the skin in the target areas.

What makes Water Lipo different than other procedures?

WaterLipo® is a technology that uses water injection to gently remove fats from the target area. Traditional liposuction techniques crush and then suction fat cells from the body. WaterLipo®, in contrast, uses a stream of water pressure to release fat cells from targeted areas so that they can be suctioned up gently and removed from the body.

There are many advantages to using the WaterLipo® tumescent technique.

  1. Using WaterLipo®, patients only require a local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia. This greatly reduces the risks involved with liposuction surgery and reduces undesirable side effects such as nausea or a prolonged recovery period.
  2. WaterLipo® is gentle. The stream of water used to wash fats out of the body does not traumatize the tissues the way that traditional scraping liposuction methods do.
  3. WaterLipo® results are more precise and smooth.
  4. The WaterLipo® procedure requires less tumescent fluid which makes it possible for the surgeon to see results in real time*.

WaterLipo and Fat Transfer

WaterLipo® is an important anti-aging tool and patients often ask if they can use the fat from their WaterLipo® procedure to create additional volume in the cheeks or the hands to create a more youthful appearance. The answer, of course, is YES! WaterLipo® does not crush the fat cells that are removed from the body which makes it easy to transplant these cells to other areas of the body.

Often, patients choose to have fat transplanted into the folds around the mouth or in the cheeks, to bring a youthful appearance back to the face. A patient’s own natural fat is an excellent alternative to dermal fillers such as Juvederm® or Radiesse®. Living fat cells last longer than synthetic dermal fillers. So some patients undergo a WaterLipo® procedure in a very small area of the body just to harvest fat cells to transfer to the face or the hands. This is an excellent option for patients who plan to get fillers on a regular basis.*

WaterLipo and Buttocks augmentation

We use an autologous fat transfer technique to perform Brazilian butt lift surgery.  The fat from one area of the body is harvested using liposuction, treated and purified, and then transferred to the buttocks. Tiny incisions are made all over the butt cheeks to ensure that the the transplanted fat cells are evenly distributed and the final results will be smooth.

The Brazilian butt lift is a popular procedure these days. Dr. Joffrey uses a special procedure that combines abdominal liposuction with tumescent liposuction of other areas of the body to harvest fat cells that are later used for transfer to the buttocks. The patient’s own fat cells are used to add greater volume and more curves to the buttocks. The final results create the natural appearance of lift. Some patients can benefit from fat extraction from the areas directly adjacent to the buttocks to provide the necessary fat cells for transplantation while also shaping and contouring that region of the body for a more dramatic result.*

During this initial consult, we’ll talk with you about your aesthetic goals and set up a treatment plan to help you achieve those goals and begin living your life with a renewed sense of self-confidence.

Breast Augmentation

We offer both silicone implants as well as fat transfer to the breast. Silicone breast implants are a tried and true way to augment the breast size, but fat grafting to the breast is a popular option for breast augmentation as well. Both of these procedures can be used to create more volume in the breasts to enhance the patient’s body proportions.

Breast augmentation using fat transfer has the advantage of using the patient’s own natural tissues to accomplish the final results. Fat is harvested from the abdomen or another area of the body using liposuction where there is an excess of fat cells, and these are transplanted to the breast tissue. Fat transfer to the breasts is a minimally invasive procedure and the results look very natural.

To learn more about autologous fat grafting or breast augmentation using silicone implants, please take a moment to browse our web site and then make an appointment with us for a free initial consult with one of our doctors. During the initial consultation, we’ll discuss your options and your goals for treatment to develop a customized plan that will help you achieve those goals.
