"Dr. Khorsandi and his staff are outstanding!!! I am never compelled to write a review for anyone or any service, but for Dr. Khorsandi I had to make an exception because he and his staff are just that great!! I am a perfectionist so prior to selecting a surgeon to work on me, I did a ton of research and I kept coming back to to Dr. khorsandi. After our first meeting I knew he was the one. He immediately put me at ease, answered all my questions, phone calls, and just had this way about him. When he worked on me the first time (rhinoplasty and revision BA), I was amazed at his skill and talent for creating a masterpiece. I have since returned to him two more times for other surgeries. His incisions are artwork and heal with minimal scarring. I ONLY trust Dr. Khorsandi, Catherine and his phenomenal team. I recommended him to several friends and family. He truly cares about you, and cares Immensely about delivering the best work every time. I feel so at home every time I go to his state-of-the art facility. I'm so grateful I found the best in Vegas"- J.S. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2018
"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
"So Happy with my Results! - Having my rhinoplasty/septoplasty done by Dr. Khorsandi was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

"Best Experience with Rhino/septoplasty - I had a septo/rhinoplasty and turbinate reduction in July and I am one month out healing and feeling great! After having a deviated septum my entire life, I am amazed at my results cosmetically and most importantly I can breathe!! I only wish I would have done this way sooner. Dr. Khorsandi is, hands down, the best! I did a ton of research before deciding on a surgeon and i am so happy about..."- A. / RealSelf / Aug 25, 2018
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.
