Spine surgeon develops liposuction technique


Steven Cyr, MD, who has dual fellowship training in orthopedic and cosmetic surgery, developed a new liposuction technique called OrthoSculpt.

OrthoSculpt extracts fat around muscular anatomy to create a more natural apperance, resembing an athlete, according to a Nov. 30 news release from Dr. Cyr's practice. He developed the idea while working as a spine surgeon when he realized the potential for abdominoplasty and liposuction to address conditions affecting the back.

The procedure uses VASER ultrasound-assisted HD liposculpture and can reduce bruising. It preserves fat cells' integrity, allowing surgeons to remove it safely compared to traditional laser methods.

Dr. Cyr has used OrthoSculpt since February. He has more than 20 years of experience as a spine surgeon.
