A better way to do Liposuction


David Berman MD has recently purchased the revolutionary Smart Lipo system with the newest upgrade to the TriPlex system.

This is a revolutionary approach to liposuction which allows Dr. Berman, IN THE OFFICE to melt off fat using a laser fiber and then to gently heat the underside of the skin, so as to maximize the amount of skin tightening. After surgery you wear a a compression garment such as Spanx or Spandex.

Smart Lipo is designed for those patients within about 15% of their ideal body weight. Due to the revolutionary laser fiber, there is rarely bruising. Discomfort is minimal and patients can often return to work THE VERY NEXT DAY. There is usually minimal swelling. Your skin and body may continue to improve for 6 months or longer.

Since Dr. Berman is a board certified plastic surgeon, he has other skills at his disposal (unlike the dermatologists or ENT surgeons who may one day purchase this machine), so he can determine, if you are best served by Smart Lipo, or ultrasonic or regular liposuctionor maybe even a tummy tuck.

Smart Lipo TriPlex™

Dr. Berman has extensive experience with Smart Lipo, as over the past several years, it has become his most frequently performed surgical procedure. It is always done in the office. The Smart Lipo system for fat removal and skin tightening offers several advantages in Dr. Berman’s hands. Smart Lipo has excellent fat reduction in appropriately selected patients which usually means within 15% of their ideal body weight. Although in select cases, I have done patients that are somewhat heavier.

Good skin tightening, which occurs over a 6 months period. It is not instantaneous you have to be patient. However, it is not a miracle and some patients will have more tightening than others.

Most of my patients choose to do just straight local anesthesia, but others choose oral sedation (no IVs). If the patient decides to have an oral sedative, they must be driven home. You can return to work the next day! You can also resume exercising in 5 days. You shower the next day and can resume sexual relations the next day. After surgery, you wear spanx or Spandex for usually 5 days; occasionally I will recommend that you wear them longer.

Smart Lipo is extremely safe. I have never had an infection and no antibiotics are required. There is a temperature probe, which is designed to prevent over heating. The incisions are only about 3-4 mm. they are covered with steristrips. No drains are used. Most patients have little to no bruising- certainly much less than traditional liposuction. However a few patients will bruise more extensively. You need to avoid aspirin and aspirin containing substances for 10 days prior to the procedure.
