Dr. Alexander Sobel, owner of Anderson Sobel Cosmetic Surgery, about why liposuction remains his preferred method for fat reduction, even as new nonsurgical body contouring technologies are emerging joins eHealth Radio and the Plastic Surgery Information Channel.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Alexander Sobel discuss the following:

  • There is a lot of talk about non-surgical fat reduction these days, but liposuction is still one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in America. Why is liposuction still the most effective for patients seeking permanent fat reduction?  What limitations exist with non-surgical fat reduction?
  • One reason you prefer liposuction for permanent fat reduction is that it can be used all over the body, not just on the abdomen. How does this level of flexibility compare to many of the non-surgical options available?
  • What is the liposuction recovery period like? When can you go back to work after liposuction?
  • It often takes multiple treatments and many months for people to see results with non-surgical treatments. How long does it typically take for liposuction results to appear?
  • Can you tell us more about how liposuction can be tailored by the surgeon to achieve the patient’s unique body contouring goals?

 

Dr. Alexander Sobel, owner of Anderson Sobel Cosmetic Surgery and Vice President of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, is an award-winning, triple board certified surgeon in general cosmetic surgery, cosmetic facial surgery, and otolaryngology.

  • What was the impetus for MedCircle?  Why did you create it?  Was there a certain issue you wanted to address with it?
  • How has the response been thus far?  What are those coming to the site saying about MedCircle?

  • There are a lot of online properties that have health information available, such as WebMD.  MedCircle does to, but what makes yours different?  A simple Google search can net a consumer a lot of information.

Further you dont know what you, is credible?  Can you trust the source to be reliable?  Your health is extremely precious to you and your loved ones.  So why make decisions based on unvetted, questionable sources when there are resources out there like MedCircle that is designed to deliver healthcare education from real doctors and those who have first-hand knowledge and experience with a health issue one may be experiencing.

 

MedCircle Overview: MedCircle was created to provide a trusted source of health information to consumers and an easy, secure way for healthcare providers to share health information with patients, family members, colleagues and other consumers.
