ALT - Treatment Philosophy
For the past 24 years, I've spent my professional career specializing in liposuction and body contouring procedures. My practice has been specifically focused on treating patients from across the globe who suffer from very complicated cases most surgeons aren't willing to treat. These cases typically include revision liposuction surgery, liposuction on difficult areas of the body (such as the calves and ankles) and patients with poor skin elasticity and cellulite.
I take the care, results and ultimate happiness of each and every patient very seriously; however, I feel a special honor and satisfaction in caring for patients with lipedema. To cure this often misdiagnosed fat storage condition, the surgeon must provide special care and perform proper liposuction surgery, which requires both extensive experience and skill in order to avoid complications and receive the best possible results. Since liposuction is the only surgery I perform, I have perfected my surgical judgment and technique over the years with thousands of patients. Having performed more than 2,000 lipedema surgeries, I created a unique approach to treating lipedema with liposuction, called The Amron Method™.
My philosophy is to target disproportion on the patient's body, so as the patient loses weight, he or she does so in a very proportioned and balanced fashion. Liposuction surgery is performed to remove the diseased fat from the lipedema patient's body. However, there is careful attention and skill employed to achieve the optimal cosmetic result and to maximally decongest the tissues.
To achieve he maximal improvement in each patient, liposuction should accomplish three main goals in every surgery: reduction of pain and improvement of symptoms, prevention of disease progression, and the best cosmetic outcome.
- Reduction in pain and improvement of symptoms
- Prevention of disease progression
- Maximum cosmetic outcome
I created The Amron Method™ to consistently achieve these goals. In addition, at The Roxbury Institute, we have created a comprehensive lipedema treatment program - The Advanced Lipedema Treatment Program (links to new page) that addresses all critical areas of lipedema treatment and involves a range of services including diagnosis, medical treatment, nutritional counseling, MLD therapy/decongestive therapy, stem cell therapy, lymphatic sparing liposuction surgery , plastic and reconstructive surgery, and pre-and-post surgical IV therapy.
I'm happy to be making a meaningful change by bringing greater awareness to this disease and bringing hope to those living with lipedema. The lipedema community is strong and beautiful, and I'm proud and privileged to be a part in changing the lives of these women.
