Hi Dr. Naderi,
I consulted you re: revision rhinoplasty last year and will probably pursue surgery with you sometime this year. I am also interested in smart lipo for my saddlebags. Do you plan to be certified in smartlipo anytime soon? Of course it would be easiest to have one Dr. do both surgeries.
I look forward to seeing you again whenever you are ready. As you know, my practice is exclusively limited to Plastic Surgery of the face and especially the nose. I do not perform any body procedures nor do I plan on ever doing so.
For patients seeking both Facial and body cosmetic surgery, I work very closely with some of the top Board Certified Plastic Surgeons in the DC area such as Dr. Talal Munasifi, Dr. Michael Brown, Dr. Christopher Hess, Dr. David Berman, Dr. Amer Saba, Dr. Behzad Parva, Dr. Phillip Chang and Dr. Peter Kleiner.
Although it may be easier to have both procedures by the same surgeon, it is not always the best decision. You have surely heard of the saying “Jack of all trades and master of none!” I personally would seek the best possible expert for each procedure I would be interested. In the Northern Virginia area, Dr. David Berman and Dr. Peter Kleiner both perform Smartlipo. Neither one performs nose surgery.
To make your decision easier, you should know that Smartlipo is an in-office procedure since none of the hospitals carry the laser equipment but Rhinoplasty and especially Revision Rhinoplasty are procedures done at the hospital under anesthesia.
