The experience and training of the individual doctor has more to do with the expertise than the name of the specialty.

In brief: Right md for lipo

Make sure your doctor is well-trained.
Tumescent liposuction is the safest procedure for the removal of fat. It was invented by a dermatologist, is done under local anesthesia, uses microcannulas for the smoothest results and does not require other machines (lasers, ultrasound) to get the best results.
