More recently, Dr. Kwasi Debra received additional training in liposuction and in the use of laser-assisted technologies and devices to perform minimally invasive procedures to help sculpt nearly any area of the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including: the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. During the past decade liposuction, which is also known as “lipoplasty” or “suction lipectomy”, has benefited from several new refinements.Today, a number of new techniques including Smartlipo MPX and Triplex with the tumescent technique, and wet technique, are helping many cosmetic surgeons to provide selected patients with more precise results and quicker recovery times.
In addition, Dr. Debra performs other procedures to help with skin rejuvenation, laser hair removal, varicose vein treatment using laser and radiofrequency, sclerotherapy of spider veins, anti-aging, Titan skin-tightening, and vaginal rejuvenation. Often used in conjunction with other plastic surgery techniques, laser-assisted liposuction removes pockets of fat from troublesome areas such as the thighs, hips, abdomen and upper arms. In addition this technique stimulates collagen production in the skin which then helps tighten loose skin. Laser-assisted Liposuction procedures vary depending on what your ultimate cosmetic goal is and whether you are combining liposuction with other plastic surgery procedures. In this rapidly evolving era of medicine and technology, Dr Debra keeps abreast by attending conferences and workshops and training with experts in the field all over the world.
