About M.R. Khalifeh M.D.

Dr. Khalifeh now performs the majority of his cases using Awake Laser Liposuction Technique. He does offer traditional liposuction and Power assisted liposuction (micro-aire) under general anesthesia for high volume cases and for combination makeover cases where liposuction is combined with other procedures.
