"Best Plastic Surgeon Ever!! - After receiving full body and flanks liposuction by Dr. Khuthaila, every morning as I wake up and look in the mirror, I say out loud, "Thank you God for Dr. Khuthaila!" (My wife says that as well!) After attempting several other treatment modalities for this region of my body, through liposuction, I finally achieved the goals I was searching for.

(My wife says that as well!) After attempting several other treatment modalities for this region of my body, through liposuction, I finally achieved the goals I was searching for. She and her team at Facial Plastic, Reconstructive, and Laser Surgery in Poughkeepsie were top notch, always professional and supportive, but not stodgy. I was made to feel right at home. Results are superb. Dr. K literally personally called me each day for several days following the procedure and although this is not common, I was able to return to work the day after the surgery, not needing even Tylenol for pain. I am looking forward to returning to the gym and for once in my life, actually see a result of all of the sit-ups that I do! I could not recommend Dr. K more highly!"- R. / RealSelf / Jan 31, 2017
"I LOVE Dr Khuthaila. She is one of the very few doctors that will not only do an amazing and meticulous job, but will take her time to explain the procedure and answer all questions along the way, and do it with the integrity of a true professional and with the best interest of the patient in mind first and foremost. I saw many plastic surgeons before I found her, at the recommendation of a very close friend, and once you meet her, you will immediately understand why her patients love her so much. She's treated me and my mom, I've recommended her to friends and will keep going back to her. She is 5 star all around. As an added bonus, her gorgeous office overlooks Central Park and is close to wonderful restaurants and the nice shops on 5th and Madison. Thank you Dr Khuthaila!!!"- S.M. / Yelp / Aug 23, 2016
"Only 3 days postop!!! To be honest, I could not let another day go by without writing a review about this phenomenal woman. I've wanted a breast reduction for the past three years now.? In that process, I have been to many consults and saw about 4 different doctors. I can't even begin to explain how nervous and worried I was about going through this surgery.? The day I met Dr. Khuthalia, was the day I knew I had nothing to worry about and every fear or concern I had disappeared. Outside of being an excellent surgeon she was a beautiful and compassionate person.? I feel extremely lucky to have found her.? I truly could not have asked for a better experience and really I wouldn't recommend anyone else!"- C.M. / Yelp / Jan 11, 2017

"If you're considering cosmetic surgery, do yourself a favor and book a consultation with Dr. Khuthalia. She is AMAZING!! I was SO nervous about undergoing surgery for my breast aug, but consulting with her put me at ease. She is incredibly knowledgeable and helped guide me to make the best decision for my body. Plus the surgery itself was far less invasive than I had imagined- I was able to go to brunch 24 hours post op and was back to my normal routine within a few days. I highly recommend her!"- A.N. / Google / Dec 14, 2016
During the consultation, the surgeon and patient will discuss what donor sites will be most suitable and desirable for fat removal. During surgery, fat is removed from the donor site using a cannula. The fat will then be purified using a centrifuge, which is a device that spins the fat at a high speed in order to remove any impurities. The fat will be placed in a syringe and augmented into the transfer site. The surgeon will simultaneously massage the area so that the fat settles where needed to create a satisfactory shape and contour. Multiple injections are usually needed.
A fat transfer is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed at an accredited surgical facility. In the majority of cases, especially where larger injection areas are concerned, general anesthesia will be used. For smaller areas, such as the lips, the surgeon will use a local anesthetic. After the procedure, the fat removal areas, as well as the injection sites may be swollen and red. This will subside in a short time. This procedure continues to be popular among patients because it offers little risk and little downtime, while delivering great results.

Fat Transfer FAQs@headingTag>
When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, a fat transfer can result in an enhanced appearance that can last for years. While some of the fat will be reabsorbed back into the body, a skilled fat transfer expert will understand the proper mechanism behind creating a result that will last. There are new modern techniques available to help lengthen the life of the transferred fat cells. Platelet Rich Plasma is an example of this. When added to the transferred fat, it can increase the cell survival. This is a therapy that is still being studied.
A fat transfer typically results in long-lasting fullness. However, because a portion of the transferred fat will be reabsorbed into the body over time, some of the results may diminish. The good news is that this is a procedure that can be performed again very easily, resulting in additional body contouring and enhancement.
While fat transfers produce great results for many patients, there are other alternatives that some may consider. Luckily, the market for injectables is wide and diverse. An injection, such as BOTOX®, may produce the results some patients desire — especially where wrinkle correction is concerned. For patients desiring volume, there are countless filler products that offer many different choices and options. Some fillers, including collagen and hyaluronic acid, offer temporary outcomes, while the heaviest of fillers, PMMA, offer lasting results.
