Trantien Foundation Humanitarian Project in Hue,Vietnam

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.

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.

New Zeltiq Machine

I am pleased to announce that the Zeltiq-Coolsculpting machine will be available for use next week.
The device is ideal for removal of localized fatty areas that have not been responsive to diet and exercise. The process takes under an hour and has no down time. The maximal results will take 6-8 week to be visible. The fat cells that are removed will not come back. During each treatment approximately 20-25% of the treated area will reduce. This is an exciting non invasive method to improve body contour before the summer.
