Under the expert guidance of Dr. Daniel Taheri, the staff at LA Laser and Skin Center harnesses laser-fat-removal technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can slink away. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time. Technicians perform the six treatments within 72 hours of one another over the span of two weeks, the exact length of time it takes a laser to cross a football field. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, regular hydration, and avoidance of caffeine and alcohol.
Though most people pose the question “if there was one thing you could change about yourself, what would it be?” as a conversation starter, Dr. John F. Hsu asks it so he can fulfill that wish. As a plastic surgeon, he helps build confidence by lifting, reducing, and reconstructing natural features. Aside from surgery, he works to enhance his clients' appearance with other procedures including spider-vein removal and weight-loss programs. Dr. Hsu backs all his treatments with a wealth of knowledge and experience, including a variety of degrees from top universities including UCLA and NYU and time spent training at hospitals such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and researching at institutions such as Harvard and the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
Prior to taking the helm of Beverly Hills Institute of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Soheil Lahijani first honed his craft at some of the top programs in the country and by the side of international surgical stars. What he learned as the chief resident at Yale University-Saint Mary's Hospital and in the operating rooms of Vanderbilt University and exam rooms of Barcelona, Spain, shaped him into a skilled plastic surgeon.
Before he ever picks up a needle, scalpel, or can of spray glitter, he and his staff educate prospective patients on their cosmetic options and counsel them on realistic expected results. Only then does Dr. Lahijani set about performing face-lifts and rhinoplasty, augmenting and lifting breasts, and reshaping physiques with liposuction.
