My entire experience with Dr. Khattab and his office has been positive from beginning to end and I am totally pleased with the results of my surgery! Dr. Khattab and his staff are the nicest people I've met in a medical setting. He is an all around great doctor and guy. I was referred to Dr. Khattab for an abdominoplasty by my general surgeon...
At the end of this unusually hot summer, it is time to take additional care of your skin. Even those who have not spent too much time in the sun or have used sun protection and do not have visible signs of excessive sun exposure, have gotten the effects of spending time outdoors.
Following summer dry weather, chemical peels are very effective in getting back the fresh- faced look and feel. There are different types of chemical peels and they all aim to smooth the rough and dry skin and reduce the sun damage. Even if you decide that the chemical peel is not for you, exfoliating is a must. All skin types will benefit from regular exfoliation but your skin type/condition needs to be taken into consideration before choosing the right exfoliant.
In addition to internally nourishing the skin with a healthy diet, topical antioxidants are needed to promote skin health. Vitamins A, C and E are the most effective ones among them. Vitamin C provides protection against free radicals and promotes collagen creation and sun damage reversal. Vitamin E helps reduce sunburn effects and protects the skin lipid balance. Vitamin A in the form of Retinoids is a very powerful anti-aging product that works on cellular level. It can cause increased photosensitivity in some skin types so proper application and care is essential.
Remember that the basis for anti-aging is moisturizing and sun protection, so always apply sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays and moisturize twice a day to keep your skin properly hydrated.

Time and gravity often cause the skin of the inner and outer thigh to sag and lose tone over time. The inner thigh skin usually has poor elasticity because it is thin and has fewer elastic fibers. Women especially commonly experience significant fatty deposits around the inner thigh affecting the leg’s overall contour and this area is usually slow to respond to weight loss or exercise. Massive weight loss exaggerates this condition and leaves the patient with moderate amount of excess sagging skin. As a matter of fact, the thigh lift really is designed to tighten the skin after significant weight loss.
A thigh lift reshapes the thigh by removal of excess skin and in some cases fat from the inner and outer thighs. A medial thigh lift is often done as a standalone procedure while the outer thigh lift is often a part of the lower body lift. The medial thigh lift with the groin incision primarily removes the excess upper thigh skin while the lift which includes a vertical scar that extends from the inner aspect of the groin towards the knee area is best suited for patients with both horizontal and vertical laxity. The approach to the procedure depends on the degree of laxity and remaining fatty tissue. Hidden scars can produce pleasing results, but more remarkable scars are sometimes needed for more impact.
Thigh lift surgery should not be taken lightly as the scars can be relatively visible and patient needs to have significant excess of skin to make it worthwhile, but in a well-selected patient, this surgery can produce a life changing effect. Only an experienced Board certified plastic surgeon can make this assessment with you.

Liposuction is a procedure that slims and reshapes a certain area of the body. The surgery is done by removing excess deposits of fat, enhancing the contours of your body and slimming your proportions. Any areas of fat on the body can be removed by liposuction, such as the arms, abdomen, neck, thighs, hips, buttocks, waist, back, inner knee, and chin.
The amount of fat that can be removed in a liposuction procedure is based on how much fat is there to begin with. Watch this video to learn how much fat you can expect to lose in surgery in specific areas based on your body type.

Like the other reviewers have said, Dr. Khattab is truly a special, wonderful person. I've known him for 12 years and to this day, he is my absolute favorite doctor, ever. I came to him when I was 14 years old after an accident left me needing some reconstructive/plastic surgery. My case was complicated- not your run of the mill plastic...
