Dr. Kressel was invited by the Trantien Foundation to join Project Hue. This program brings physicians from the United States to provide medical care and treat patients in Hue,Vietnam located 600 miles north of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). In March 2014 Dr. Kressel joined a group comprising of both reconstructive surgeons and medical specialists. While there he cared for both children and adults in 2 hospitals: Hue University Hospital and Hue Central Hospital.

The procedures performed included repairing congenital deformities , cleft lip and palate repair, revising traumatic scars, burn scar release, hand surgery, and excision of facial tumors. In addition, he had the opportunity interact and teach the local physicians, residents in training and medical students.


If you are interested in COOLSCULPTING April is the time to call for an appointment.
If you have your treatment now you can expect to see your improved contour by the time summer begins.

Appointments that are made in April will be eligible for special pricing.


Now is the time to begin planning procedures in anticipation of the warm weather.
To look trimmer in outdoor attire cool sculpting treatments should be on the short list.
With a 2-3 month lag time until optimal results are seen this is the time to schedule treatments for your muffin top love handles or your abdomen. Do it now so when summer rolls around the new you will be visible.

Winter Skin Care

Winter is a good time to have a skin check up.
A new moisturizer is helpful to keep the skin moist and plump.
Skin care regimens started now will improve the quality and character of the skin with an improved glow results that will be visible this spring


It  has been  over 5 months since I began the cool sculpting process in the office.

I have begun the process of critically  evaluating the results. Everyone who has  been treated has shown improvement. The improvement in the contour varies from patient to patient. Several of the patients  have even undergone 2nd treatments to the area to enhance their results.

Many of the patients who have been undergoing coolsculpting are seeing their results.

Several of the patients have been coming back to reduce additional areas.
Now is a great time to schedule treatments to see the results for the summer.

Freezing Fat

the Zeltiq Coolsculpting process is a great way to reduce the “muffin top”, love handles and back fat that is visible when wearing snug clothing or bathing suits.

The process has been called freezing fat -cryolipoysis.
In developing the technique the designers realized that fat cells when chilled will “melt away”. This process occurs almost invisibly over the first few weeks after the treatment so it is important to judge the result at 2-3 months after the first treatment. Approximately 20-25 % of the volume of fat that has been “chilled” will melt away and be eliminated safely by the body.



I am pleased to announce that Lidia will be joining the practice in developing and running a skin care spa. Lidia has been in practice for many years in a prominent skin care facility on Madison Avenue and has decided to take her skills to a new level. She plans on offering many different facial treatments and complementary treatments including massage, waxing and make up.
