We’re Giving to the Charitable Organization You Choose

At the cornerstone of our plastic surgery practice is a commitment to community involvement, especially in Valparaiso, Schererville, and the surrounding areas our staff and patients call home. This holiday season, we’re excited to give back in a big way: by donating a total of $5,000 to 3 charitable organizations near and dear to our hearts. How did we choose? We asked members of our staff to nominate different charities as possible recipients of the donation.

Knee Liposuction

Do you dislike your knees? Most women describe attractive legs as a gradual tapering from the thighs to the ankles. While a slight fullness at the knees is normal, many women have prominent fatty bulges on the inner knees, even without excess fat in the thighs. This is both genetically determined and age related.

It’s wise to know that liposuction of the fatty area above the knee is rarely performed but, when it is, a minimal amount … Continue reading

What is Liposuction? Liposuction, although not a weight loss technique, permanently removes fat from areas of the body that don’t respond to exercise and diet. Once removed, the fat cells are gone forever. I routinely perform liposuction in Indiana at my Valparaiso and Schererville plastic surgery practices near Merrillville and Munster. Where Can Liposuction Be Performed? Although liposuction can be performed on nearly any part of the body, the … Continue reading
