"Had a hair transplant one year ago, and can honestly say it is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Took me many years to take the plunge, but I am so glad that I did."- J.S. / Google / Jul 04, 2019
"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017
"Dr. Khorsandi preformed a BA on me 2 years ago. I'm absolutely content with my decision and the sum of money I spent. His staff is extremely welcoming. I would say his bedside manner is very good. I did not experience much discomfort the days following my surgery. I have very natural results. People are always very surprised when I reveal to them I've had a BA."- J.C. / Yelp / Jun 28, 2019
"I absolutely love Dr. K and his staff. He is honest, knows his stuff, and does an AMAZING job. He talks to you like you're a human and makes every interaction with you personable. He is real, which is what I love. During my consultation, I was looking at getting a lift and implants. Instead of just taking the extra money, Dr. K told me that I didn't need to get a lift at this time. Any other doctor I saw prior to him were all for it because it gives them more money, but Dr. K gave me his honest and expert opinion. I got my breast augmentation done August 2018 (without lift), and one of my implants didn't drop. Dr. K helped give me different ways of trying to get it to drop prior to having to go through surgery again, but unfortunately, my body is just stubborn. Dr. K ended up doing the surgery to pull down the implant April 2019 (which he didn't even charge for), and they look AMAZING! This is the best investment I have made and I am so glad that I went with Dr. K. I highly recommend using him!"- K.S. / Yelp / Jun 24, 2019
"Getting a hair transplant has been one of the greatest things I’ve ever done!!! I’ve been worried about my hair since age 20. I am now 40 and never ever think about it anymore. It’s been the greatest gift I’ve ever given myself. Sure you can buy a yourself a watch or a car but none of those will be staring back at you in the mirror every single day like a full head of hair! I thought about it for years and picking up the phone to make the appointment was probably the hardest part of the whole process. After I hung up that call I felt a rush go thru my entire body, “am I really going to have a full head of hair?”When I arrived in Vegas I was greeted by Lee (who is one of the all time positive guys I’ve ever met, a real gem!) He met me in the morning at my hotel and talked me thru the entire day! It was a wonderful to have someone with me since I had traveled alone....a personal concierge if you will. This seems to be a recurring theme at VIP Plastic Surgery, the personal touch. We are far to used to feeling like a number in this fast paced world and it was nice to feel that the entire office was catering to only me! Lee was with me the entire day, helped with my prescriptions, and generally kept the mood light throughout the process! I had my consultation with Dr Khorsandi, what an impressive guy! It was obvious that he was born to do this work. He comes from a family of doctors and it shows in his patience and understanding. We laughed like we had known each other our whole lives! Ive never seen somebody mix east coast sensibilities with west coast asthetic! This guy is the real deal.The surgery itself was pretty uneventful surprisingly! The only irritation I felt was from the first needle to numb the area. After that I didn’t feel a thing! What else could you ask for! ? After the surgery I went back to my hotel and fell asleep. No agony, no pain.....just a wonderful night in a quiet hotel room! I said my goodbyes and flew home a few days later.It’s now been a year since the surgery and literally have a full head of hair. Not some coverage, A FULL HEAD! I’m able to exercise and live life without any restrictions! If you would’ve told me a few years ago that this was possible I would not have believed you, DR KHORSANDI IS A MIRACLE WORKER! Thank you for allowing me to live my life the way I always wanted to! Seriously, pick up the phone and give VIP Plastic Surgery a call. They are solid people top to bottom, a class organization!"- S.B. / Google / May 14, 2019
About Our Technologies
Cellulite reduction treatments are a noninvasive way to safely and effectively minimize the appearance of cellulite and improve the contours of the body in the desired areas. Cellulite reduction treatments use radiofrequency energy and gentle vacuum massage to induce apoptosis (fat death). The dead fat cells are naturally absorbed by the body and processed out with time. Dr. Khorsandi uses several systems to provide the right outcome for his patients. Depending on the size of the area being treated, how much cellulite is being addressed, and other factors gathered during the consultation, the appropriate system will be chosen per the patients' needs:
Thermage uses RF energy to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin to initiate collagen for firmer, younger-looking skin. With Comfort Pulse Technology and cooling effects, our patients are comfortable and protected from burns that the applicator releases. No anesthesia is required and a Thermage session usually lasts less than an hour.
Fractora is a laser system that offers many treatments ranging from laser skin resurfacing to cellulite reduction. Our Las Vegas office uses Fractora Firm, which is a unique thermal skin rejuvenation treatment that heats the subdermal level to promote collagen remodeling and skin tightening. Fractora Firm provides Dr. Khorsandi with precise thermal temperature controls for optimal skin contraction without the risks of overheating. It results in a firmer appearance and can be used on the body as well as facial areas that need skin laxity improvement.
Yet another excellent option that VIP Plastic Surgery offers for cellulite reduction is VaserShape. This nonsurgical system uses ultrasound technology and manual massaging therapy to warm the targeted problem area and treat the underlying fatty tissue. A two-step process, VaserShape also promotes the metabolism and drainage of excess toxins and fats, leaving the body healthier. With energy heat and gentle massaging, the body can look slimmer and tighter leaving patients with a more smooth, sleek appearance.
What to Expect
All nonsurgical cellulite reduction treatments take place inside our VIP Plastic Surgery treatment rooms. Some patients may need local anesthesia to help control comfort, but these treatments generally do not cause discomfort. Patients will be able to leave after the procedure, but they should avoid strenuous activity for at least 1 – 2 weeks. For the first day or two after the treatment, the patient may see mild bruising, swelling, and redness, but this should subside quickly to reveal the patient’s outcomes. Results usually last 6 – 12 months as the patient notices a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and skin dimpling, and an improvement in the elasticity and thickness of their skin. Individual results vary, but on average, patients lose about an inch off the circumference of the treated area.

Cellulite Reduction FAQs
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the lumpy, dimpled flesh that usually appears on the thighs, hips, butt, and stomach. While cellulite is more common in women, it can also be found in men. The cause of cellulite is still unclear, but many doctors think it is fat swollen with toxins to create ripples on the surface of the skin, which may be caused by genetics, thin skin, and aging. Cellulite can be found on thin and overweight bodies, and while it is not considered a serious medical condition, it is considered undesirable and unattractive.
Length of Treatments?
The length of the treatment will depend on how many areas are being treated and the size of each area, but most treatments take at least 1 – 2 hours. Patients should return to get cellulite reduction treatments once a week for 6 – 8 weeks, or as recommended.
To help speed recovery and fat loss, patients may wear compression garments for 2 – 3 weeks after their treatment. It is also helpful to the recovery process if the patient avoids strenuous activity, including exercise for 1 – 2 weeks.
