As part of his mission to stay current with the latest advancements in plastic surgery, Dr. Sam Sukkar traveled to Bogota, Columbia to work alongside Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, the inventor of high definition liposuction with VASER®. This was Dr. Sukkar’s second trip to Columbia to work with Dr. Hoyos – the previous visit being for the refining technique of the procedure following its introduction to the U.S. in 2010. The surgeons also collaborated in Istanbul in 2012.
During his most recent trip, Dr. Sukkar performed advanced high definition liposuction on international patients at an outpatient surgical clinic with an operating room – a setting very similar to ours here at Sukkar Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa. He worked with Dr. Hoyos for additional technique refinement as well as further sculpting of the human body through the VASER® procedure. Dr. Sukkar expresses his enjoyment of working with Dr. Hoyos and looks forward to collaborating with him again in the future, potentially in a second trip to Istanbul or possibly even Greece.
Overall, Dr. Sukkar believes the high definition liposuction technique is a revolutionary procedure in plastic surgery, which is why he is committed to further innovation, additional refinement of the technique, and bringing the new techniques he learns back to the U.S.
