Getting rid of fat
We offer total weight loss and targeted fat loss solutions!
Remember, while losing weight and getting rid of fat can make you look great, being overweight or even obese is associated with several negative health outcomes. These conditions include heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, even depression and diabetes. Any of these could diminish your life span and quality of life.
We specialize in multi-modal weight loss therapy. This is a unique and customized approach with three aspects for getting rid of fat. Dr Thaker is one of few physicians who offers not only medical weight loss, but also surgical liposuction, and non surgical fat reduction using lasers and freezing methods. These three methods provide a comprehensive treatment plan. We customize this plan for each unique patient. Dr Thaker coaches and reinforces healthy behaviors through periodic follow up visits. This is the key to long term success with weight loss. The first step is to book your medical consultation: New Patients contact us here.

Sculpsure laser lipolysis
We use Sculpsure Laser Lipolysis or ‘warm sculpting’ for patients that do not want surgery. Dr Thaker offers targeted fat loss using the world renowned Scuplsure Laser. We place four separate laser heads on the areas of fat, in a comfortable 20 minute procedure. When this fat is gone, it is gone for good. Imagine a room filled with balloons. Once these balloons are burst, they are gone forever. This is the effect of the laser on fat cells. We simultaneously cool the skin as the laser surface is chilled by the device. We also offer cool sculpting, which is a method to freeze fat from problem areas.
Dr Thaker often combines liposuction with non-surgical body contouring to meet patient aesthetic goals, and with the highest margin of comfort and safety. See more about body contouring and other laser services here: Read about Sculpsure Laser Lipolysis for permanent fat removal here.
Fat freezing or cool sculpting
Fat freezing is also called cool sculpting. This non-surgical procedure targets stubborn fat with cooling paddles that freeze fat cells. If you’ve struggled to lose fat in select areas despite diet and exercise, this may be an excellent option. The number of fat cells in each individual is mostly determined in childhood. When we gain weight, fat cells actually expand. When we lose weight, those cells shrink. For those with otherwise healthy weight, stubborn pockets of fat can be eliminated by cryolipolysis. The fat loss is permanent. We advise healthy diet and exercise to optimize results. Contact us here to schedule your consultation!
We use liposuction to surgically and permanently remove fat from problem areas. We target the ‘love handles’, ‘spare tire’ around the waist, ‘banana roll’ below the buttocks, ‘double chin’ and other areas of the face and body. Dr Thaker trained in a personalized preceptorship with one of the world’s experts in tumescent liposuction, Dr Jeffrey Klein. In this method, we inject local anesthetic solutions to minimize both pain and bleeding during liposuction.
Tumescent technique promotes patient safety. It is often regarded as the world’s safest liposuction. The medical literature supports this opinon over many decades, hundreds of surgeons, who have performed many thousands of cases world wide. This method minimizes discomfort and maximizes patient safety. The patient is comfortable and alert, communicating with the team as needed during liposuction. There is no risk from general anesthesia or IV sedatives, or ‘going to sleep and not waking up’ as some patients say.
Liposuction is the most popular body contouring surgery. We re-sculpt specific areas of the body. We remove fat permanently, and liposuction uses only a few small incisions. Liposuction targets fat deposits, in individuals who are not extremely overweight. Traditional weight loss therapies may be used first or combined with liposuction for getting rid of fat.

Many believe the best part about liposuction is that the fat can be used for fat grafting or fat transfer to enhance other areas of the body. We enhance popular areas such as hollow points on the face, or the breast or buttocks. Some people seek liposuction just for the benefit of fat transfer. We determine by our consultation if this is an option for you.
