Dr. Massey went on to complete a fellowship in Mohs Micrographic and Cosmetic Surgery at Columbia University in New York.
Dr. Massey is an award-winning surgeon, winning the prestigious Theodore Tromovitch award from the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery for excellence in research in dermatologic surgery. As well as lecturing extensively, Dr. Massey has published numerous articles on dermatologic surgery in leading peer-reviewed medical journals.
Until recently, procedures for body contouring through fat removal involved extensive operations. These resulted in large scars and significant safety risks. Several years ago, dermatologists developed tumescent liposuction.
This allows fat removal through tiny incisions that do not leave significantly visible scars. A large volume of extremely dilute local anesthetic is infiltrated into the area to be treated. Then utilizing straw like, extremely thin metal tubes (cannulas) and a high-pressure suction system, the fat cells are extracted through tiny incisions.
For Dr. Massey safety is the first priority with any surgery. He has personally performed hundreds of liposuction surgeries, and none of his patients has had any type of serious complication. Indeed in a recent study of over 15,000 patients treated with tumescent liposuction there was not a single serious complication.
“Dr Massey, you are a rarity today and a fine representation of what a doctor should be… caring for the patient above all else. Thank you most deeply for your beautiful work on my nose. Thank you most especially for seeing me through a very traumatic experience with outstanding care, sensitivity and professionalism.”
