Dr. Markelov A standout in his industry

Dr. Markelov stands out as one of the very few plastic surgeons who excel at surgical lipedema treatment . This procedure requires exceptional skill, and many surgeons avoid it for that reason. Dr. Markelov deftly performs arm, leg, thigh, and ankle liposuction procedures that provide relief for those who suffer from Lipedema. 

Another example of how Dr. Markelov stands out from his peers is that he is highly skilled at breast implant removal, often correcting botched implant surgeries his patients have undergone elsewhere.
