Cosmetic Surgery Laws Often Aren’t Enough
Early last year, Irma Carabajal LeCroy was a successful Dallas real estate broker who owned two homes, a luxury car, an SUV and a small office building. Today, she is out of work, uses a walker and wheelchair to get around and says she has nothing left to her name.

Though liposuction has been in use in plastic surgery practices since the 1970s, it was not until Jeffrey Klein, MD, developed the tumescent technique in 1985 that the procedure gained widespread popularity. More than 25 years later, traditional tumescent liposuction continues to evolve with new technologies—such as power-assisted liposuction (PAL), ultrasonic devices and laser lipolysis systems—and new techniques, such as liposculpture and the use of fat grafting to create balance and reduce postprocedure …
