Dr. Aria Vazirnia, MD, MAS, FAAD, a Harvard-trained, double board-certified dermatologic surgeon, is warmly regarded by his Lipedema patients as "Dr. V." Building on his esteemed Harvard fellowship, Dr. V has established himself as a leading Lipedema Surgeon with the Advanced Lipedema Treatment (ALT) Program at The Roxbury Institute, treating patients in Beverly Hills, CA, and Salt Lake City, Utah.
Dr. V graduated summa cum laude from UCLA before attending UC San Diego School of Medicine, where he completed his medical degree, residency training, and a master's degree in clinical research. Throughout his residency, Dr. V authored numerous medical journal articles and textbook chapters, and held board positions with the California Society of Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery and the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery.
Continuing his professional development, Dr. V completed an intensive Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery Fellowship at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston. Under the guidance of world-renowned experts, Dr. V honed his skills in the safe and effective use of cutting-edge technologies.
During and following his Harvard fellowship, Dr. V cultivated a deep interest in tumescent liposuction, a safer and more effective liposuction technique devised by dermatologic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Klein. Dr. V completed an additional fellowship in Advanced Tumescent Liposuction and Liposculpture at the Roxbury Institute in Beverly Hills under the mentorship of Dr. David Amron. Here, he mastered the ALT method, Dr. Amron's innovative three-dimensional circumferential approach to lymphatic sparing liposuction for Lipedema treatment.
Dr. V's dedication to Lipedema treatment and management is deeply rooted in his personal connection to the disease, as he witnessed his grandmother's struggle with this debilitating condition. Outside of his practice, Dr. V delights in playing piano and guitar, engaging in tennis, and spending quality time with loved ones.
At the core of Advanced Lipedema Treatment’s philosophy is the guiding principle that our surgeons are treating not simply a disease, but a person with a disease. Prior to even meeting a new patient, heart and empathy lead the way, holding a patient’s hand from the initial consultation through recovery.
At the surface of our philosophy is beautiful artistry. Our elegant and skillful surgeons target disproportionate fat on the patient's body, so that the patient loses weight, but does so in a perfectly balanced way. However, achieving this requires more than just removing the accumulated fat. Equally as important is the careful attention and skill employed through liposculpture to achieve aesthetically pleasing body contouring and cosmetic results, and to maximally decongest the tissues. For maximum improvement in each patient, liposuction and liposculpture should accomplish three main goals: reduction of pain and improvement of symptoms, prevention of disease progression, and the best cosmetic outcome.
Dr. Amron and his team of lipedema specialists treat patients from around the globe. For that reason, Dr. Amron wanted to create an exceptional lipedema treatment and surgical center. Today, Dr. Amron’s Advanced Lipedema Treatment is offered exclusively at the highly regarded Roxbury Institute, with locations in Los Angeles, California and Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Roxbury Institute exceeds every standard of medical safety, and creates an idyllic environment for patients that promotes trust. With its elegant furnishings and well-equipped treatment rooms, you’ll rest easy knowing you’re receiving the highest standards of care and treatment.
