BEVERLY HILLS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/13 -- Renowned liposuction surgeon Dr. David Amron has spent his 18-year career helping individuals with genetically disproportionate areas of fat storage achieve a perfectly balanced body. Always the outspoken advocate of proper liposuction techniques, Dr. Amron recently spoke out against what he ascertains to be "gimmicky liposuction alternatives," and why such claims may be too good to be true.

The article, posted on March 20th, 2013, states that patients should be wary of unproven solutions that claim to "diminish fat with the flick of a button." For one, these procedures often do not work, but more importantly, they may cause unforeseen complications, many of which can result in permanent damage.

Even more frightening, Dr. Amron states that many of these new alternatives are performed by doctors who possess little expertise in the field of fat removal, and that even if they are performed successfully, their results are often temporary or unsatisfactory. For those who do not want surgery, Dr. Amron may recommend proven liposuction alternatives that are both safe and effective as long as a proper evaluation is performed and patient expectations are well established.

Liposuction is the only proven surgical method of combating unsightly pockets of fat storage. Since it's popularization in the 1980s millions of people seeking more proportionate bodies have undergone the procedure, to varying measures of success.

Unfortunately, the percentage of liposuction surgeries conducted by doctors ill-equipped to perform the procedure has given rise to a need for revision liposuction experts. Dr. Amron is one of these experts, and spends much of his time in the operating room correcting the damage done by other, less qualified surgeons.

As Dr. Amron states in the post, liposuction is "not necessarily a solution for overweight individuals." It is very well possible then that a number of botched liposuction procedures were performed on patients who had no business being operated on in the first place. For this reason, among others, Dr. David Amron emphasizes that patients choose their surgeon carefully.
