Though many work hard to maintain their ideal weight, many times the odds are just stacked against them. It can be frustrating to try numerous diet and exercise trends, to live in a healthy way but to see minimal results. Things like environment, genetics, and diseases or conditions beyond your control often effect weight management and reaching your goals with success. When this happens, you suffer mentally and physically as your conditions don’t improve.
Why suffer when you can act now to reduce the fat in your body, creating a newer, healthier you. You’d be surprised at how big of a difference you see in your mental health, not to mention your physical health, when you opt for a liposuction procedure.
We know what you’re thinking – these procedures that involve you voluntarily altering your physical stature often seem like such large and relatively scary commitments. What if it doesn’t work in the long-term? What if you gain the weight back? How much will it cost? What will the recovery time be like? What will people think or say? Will it require a major lifestyle change? All of these questions can and should be answered, and step one to answering them is finding a highly experienced, qualified plastic surgeon. If you’re looking for affordable liposuction in Miami area, you can’t go wrong with the Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami.

Dr. Altman graduated first at the top of his class in Dartmouth, and then again when he attended medical school at the State University of New York. His residency was at the world-renowned Mount Sinai hospital in New York City, where he served as chief resident in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery. He completed his training at the University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospitals, where he served as chief resident in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Altman has accumulated many awards and honors over the years, and is one of the founding members of the Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami.
Dr. Ghersi attended Florida Atlantic University and graduated Magna Cum Laude honors. He obtained his medical doctorate degree from George Washington University, and pursued post graduated training back in South Florida. He worked as a general surgery resident at Mount Sinai Medical Center, and then he joined the Cleveland Clinic Hospital where he successfully finished his plastic and reconstructive surgery residency. After his training was complete, he joined the faculty at Cleveland Clinic plastic surgery department and entered a private practice in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he attended adult and children with reconstructive surgery needs. His work eventually led him to performing surgeries on children and adults with reconstructive needs annually in Central America. While he pursued reconstructive surgery, he developed a passion for aesthetic plastic surgery as well, and sought to learn from the top surgeons in the country. He eventually would return to South Florida to co-found the Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami, where is his a board certified surgeon who’s well known for gorgeous results.
Dr. Oeltjen received his MD and PhD in Molecular and Human Genetics, and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery from Baylor College of Medicine. He worked on cancer reconstruction at MD Anderson Cancer Center, and following his residency he became Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery on the faculty at the University of Miami, where he taught for 8 years. It’s there, at the University of Miami, where he developed further interest in aesthetic surgery of the breasts and trunk, breast reconstruction and microsurgical reconstruction in collaboration with the multiple surgical specialty services. This provided vast opportunities to participate in reconstruction on nearly every part of the body, whether it be voluntary adjustment, salvage of limbs from accidents, or reconstructions after cancer removal. Shortly after his time at the University of Miami, he joined on with Plastic Surgery Institute Miami, where he is locally and nationally recognized as one of the most effective plastic surgeons today.
PSI Miami and Liposuction
The bottom line is that unwanted fat is an extremely common problem for men and women everywhere. Diet and exercise help, but perfect results are usually impossible to achieve on your own when you have things like aging, genetics, and environment working against you. So, how can we help? We at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami are the leading provider of liposuction in Miami, and we only staff the best and most experienced in liposuction. Liposuction – the phenomenal technique to target fat deposits that give the body an unattractive appearance, and then remove it – is one of the most common procedures that we perform.
Generally speaking, for your procedure, we’ll create small incisions (2-4 millimeters) and remove the targeted, unwanted fat through those incisions. Depending on the areas and the volume of fat to be removed, you may have local anesthesia, or general anesthesia. The procedure is usually quick and result in the ability to return home the same day to begin a short recovery.
Why Choose Us
If our experience isn’t enough, understand that we pride ourselves on patient care to make sure that your procedure goes smoothly, as well as your recovery time. Too often, patients are placed in the hands of general surgeons who lack the experience in plastic surgery or body reconstruction; this often results in surgical complications and poor results. At the Plastic Surgery Institute Miami, each surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and have each performed thousands of liposuction procedures. Lastly, PSI Miami is equipped only in the best and the latest equipment for liposuction in the industry, that only leads to the best in results.
