Most professional and most impressive! The service from the physicians to office staff is superb!

Dr. Fabi is wonderful! I've been seeing her for over a year, and she has helped me regain my confidence.

Dr. Boen made me feel so comfortable and at ease when I talked to her. She explained everything before she did my treatment. I loved that. She was really easy to talk to.

I live in Orange County and drove all the way out to see Dr. Wu because a friend of mine referred him (she had amazing results from her face and neck procedure). Dr. Wu is truly an artist! He made me feel extremely comfortable during my procedure. I was anxious when I got there, but he (and his staff) have such great energy and are so very kind and gentle that you can't help but feel at ease! The office was immaculate and they adhered to covid rules (sanitizing, temp checks, masks). This is my go-to place from now on and Dr. Wu is my go-to guy! Can't wait to see my final results! Thank you Phyllis (pre-op) for being so wonderful and informative! You were so very helpful and kind! I'll definitely be back!

Leysin and the entire team at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are fantastic. They are professional, caring and communicative. The laser treatment was comfortable, efficient and effective! I highly recommend this practice. I definitely will come back and recommend her and Cosmetic Laser Dermatology to my family and friends.

Dr. Goldman is amazing! I came here for my permanent eyeliner removal (which is not offered anywhere near me), and they are completely removed in just one session. They use a special contact lens to protect your eyes from the laser, and there are no damages to my eyelashes. The healing was also nice and smooth. They have everything you need. I live almost 3 hours away, but it was totally worth the trip. For anyone who is looking to remove their permanent makeup, this is the right place to go :)-

Dr. Butterwick is fantastic, all of her team as well. They make sure your experience is pleasant and painless as possible. My tattoo removal and my injectables look amazing. I highly recommend her for any skin treatment.

Cosmetic Laser Dermatology was recommended to me by my dermatologist. He recommended Dr. Monica Boen. I'm so glad I took his recommendation. Everyone here at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology was super nice and friendly. Very welcoming. I came here for hair removal treatment. I did 4 sessions with Dr. Boen. Dr. Boen made me feel so comfortable and at ease when I talked to her. She explained everything before she did my treatment. I loved that. She was really easy to talk to. I definitely will come back and recommend her and Cosmetic Laser Dermatology to my family and friends.

This office is awesome. My visit today was with Dr. Groff. His bed side manner is so fun and welcoming. He understood my concerns and recommended a treatment plan that I feel was reasonable. I love his staff! They take there time to make sure you understand the treatment and after care. Everyone in the office, from the front desk to the nurses in the back, are so friendly and beautiful. They are very prompt and I trust my care with CLD. I can't wait for my next visit. See you guys in a few weeks!

"Dr. Sabrina Fabi is genius! Her technique is unlike anyone, her eye is precise, and her kindness and caring manner comes from the depth of her soul. She's simply brilliant! It's no wonder people travel the country just to be treated by her."

I wish I could give them 10 stars! I had such an awesome experience for my first visit and I am referring everyone I know to this office. From the super friendly staff to the state of the art procedures, they are the cream of the crop.

“I came to participate in a research study. All of the Doctors and staff at C.L. Dermatology are very professional, warm and friendly. All our my needs were anticipated and the hospitality of this office is like a five star hotel.”

Experience the Difference of Liposculpture at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology

Precision in Contouring and Sculpting

Using a very small cannula, under local anesthesia,  liposculpture allows our dermatologists to sculpt and contour your body with high precision. This meticulous approach means that fat is removed or redistributed evenly, avoiding issues like rippling or uneven texture. The result is a smoother, more natural-looking body contour that aligns perfectly with your aesthetic goals.

Customizable to Your Unique Needs

We often combine liposculpture with complementary treatments to provide you with the best fat-reduction/body shaping results possible. For instance, our proprietary ThermiSculpt procedure combines liposculpture and skin tightening to dramatically reshape and tighten your neck and jawline in just one non-surgical treatment.

Minimally Invasive with Minimal Scarring

By using local anesthesia and microcannulas, liposculpture reduces the risks associated with general anesthesia and the larger cannulas typically used for liposuction. The smaller cannulas also mean tinier incisions, minimizing scarring for a more aesthetically pleasing result with almost no evidence of a surgical procedure.

Enhanced Comfort and Collagen Stimulation

During liposculpture, a special local anesthetic is used to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. In addition to comfort, the process of fat removal and redistribution stimulates collagen and elastic fiber production. This natural response to the minor trauma caused by the cannula movement helps tighten the skin, reducing the likelihood of sagging or loose skin post-treatment.

Rapid Recovery and Long-lasting Results

The procedure’s minimally invasive nature and use of local anesthetic leads to a faster healing process and a quicker return to daily activities. You benefit from the dual impact of immediate fat reduction and progressive skin tightening, contributing to enduring and satisfying results.

What is liposuction, and how does it work?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat from specific body parts. It involves using a cannula to vacuum out fat, offering a precise approach to fat reduction.

Liposculpture refines the concept of fat removal by focusing on eliminating unwanted fat and sculpting and reshaping the body. This procedure enhances the body’s natural contours through strategic fat removal and redistribution. It’s perfect for individuals looking for more than fat reduction and wanting a more sculpted, toned appearance.

Is liposuction painful?

While discomfort levels vary, liposuction is generally well-tolerated. We employ advanced pain management techniques and use local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Our team is dedicated to ensuring your comfort and will explore all options to make your experience as pleasant as possible.

What areas can be treated with liposuction?

Liposuction is versatile, effectively treating various areas like the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, back, bra fat, knees, and neck. We will work with you to determine the most beneficial areas to target, aligning with your specific body contouring goals.

What is the recovery time after liposuction?

Recovery times can vary based on the extent of the procedure and individual healing rates. Generally, patients can expect to resume normal activities relatively quickly, with most returning to their daily routines shortly after treatment. Some swelling and bruising may occur but typically resolve within a few weeks.

How long will the results of liposuction last?

The results of liposuction can be long-lasting, especially when accompanied by a stable weight and healthy lifestyle. We provide comprehensive advice on maintaining your new body contours long-term.

Are there any side effects associated with liposuction?

While liposuction is generally safe, as with any medical procedure, it may include side effects such as temporary swelling, bruising, and numbness. We help minimize these side effects by providing liposuction in the comfort of our AAAHC-approved surgery suite under twilight sedation. Using our advanced technique, we fill and swell the targeted fatty areas with a special anesthetic solution that completely numbs the treatment area, stops bleeding, and thins and liquefies the fat. We prioritize patient education and safety, providing detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and effective recovery.
