Santa ain’t Perfect

fat aspirateOk, so a few Los Angeles inhabitants pointed out after my last blog that Santa may indeed benefit from liposuction. However, I’d have to disagree. For one, Santa is obese. Obesity is not an indication for liposuction. In fact, in some case it is a contraindication for elective surgery. Period. Liposuction is best suited for ‘deposits’ of fat that just seem to hang around stubbornly even after exercise and dieting. Flanks, belly, and outer thighs, saddle bags, and back rolls are good examples. In men, sometimes the chest (or breast) are targeted for volume reduction. I’d defer you to good friend, patient, and colleague Dr. Billi Gordon to explain in his own words, the anatomical description of this deformity.
