SmartLipo - Overview

SmartLipo is a revolutionary approach to Liposuction that allows Dr. Berman to melt fat in his office. SmartLipo uses a laser fiber to gently heat the underside of the skin, which maximizes the amount of skin tightening. This laser also melts the fat that it makes contact with. SmartLipo is designed for those patients within approximately 25% of their ideal body weight.

Dr. Berman MD uses the TriPlex system. A board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Berman can help you determine if you would best achieve your desired results with SmartLipo, or regular Liposuction or more invasive surgical procedures such as a Tummy Tuck, or non-invasive procedures such as Sculpsure.

Discomfort is mild for most patients and patients can often return to work the very next day. Post-procedure, patients are advised to wear a compression garment such as Spanx or Spandex. The skin and body will continue to improve for six months or more following the SmartLipo procedure.

1The most common areas treated?

Bra line
Flanks/love handles
Inner and outer thighs
Medial knee area
Upper arms
Fat pads that are superior and lateral to the breasts
Upper neck

2Want even more precise sculpting?

Consider high-definition SmartLipo!

High-Definition SmartLipo  brings out muscle definition and improves overall tone on specific, targeted parts of the body. While it can be applied to any part of the body, It works exceptionally well on upper arms and calves, making it an ideal treatment for patients who long for shapely arms and legs.

Because High-Definition SmartLipo requires more precision than traditional SmartLipo, it requires more tiny incisions, more time in the operating room, and longer recovery time while the body heals and adjusts to its new shape. Performed under local anesthetic whith oral sedation, this finely-tuned procedure is tailored to your body.

    First and foremost, the care provided by Dr. Berman is nothing short of exceptional. He is not only highly knowledgeable and skilled in his field, but he also takes the time to truly listen to his patients. He addressed all of my concerns with patience and compassion. Dr. Berman's staff is equally remarkable. They are friendly, efficient, and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It's evident that they take pride in their work and genuinely care about the well-being of their patients.

    I’m so grateful for Dr. Berman. He really listened to me during my consultation, and he did an amazing job on the smart lipo on my chin. Healing was easy and I had no pain. After the procedure, the office gave me his cellphone number so he was always on call if I had any questions or concerns. That was a big relief to me and I really appreciate it. His whole team is fantastic.

    Five years ago I had a tummy tuck procedure done by Dr. Berman. This procedure went so well, I was back at work within 4 days of having this done. Yes, I was moving slow but it was not painful. On January 26th, 2023, I am back again to have an arm lift and fat removed from my legs. When you go for your consult, Dr. Berman is so nice and very detailed with all of your questions, no pressure to have anything done, just very honest, you feel at home, no nervous feelings what so ever. The office is just inviting and the staff is absolutely wonderful.

    Had a great experience with Dr.Berman. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure and very nice. In regards to the actual procedure itself , I liked the fact that I didn’t have to go under anesthesia for it.
  • Cute136161
    I was so tired of my muffin top and trying to hide my bulges. I began researching and went to a few places for a consultation. One place wanted me to decide without any face to face with a surgeon, but only with their sales person. Instead at Dr. Berman's initial consultation, I met him, he examined the areas and explained everything and answered all my questions. My surgical experience and follow-up were exactly how he described and the results kept improving over several months. Bye, bye muffin top. Hello to greater motivation and more confidence! Thank you, Dr. Berman, and Staff. You are all terrific!
  • Passionate159687
    I’m thrilled with the results I’ve seen from the SmartLipo I received from Dr. Berman. The process was smooth and mostly painless; you just have to have patience, as the results don’t show up right away but when they do, they’re great!
  • Bright234450
    Dr. Berman was knowledgeable, gave me options, set my expectations, was overall was honest and friendly during the consultation, which made me feel comfortable to proceed with Smart Lipo for my stubborn lower belly fat. The procedure was painless, quick, and efficient! I only missed half a day of work afterwards. Now that it’s been two full weeks I wanted to report that I am very happy with the results already! There is a noticeable difference and I’m excited to keep improving over the next 6 months. You can tell that Dr. Berman is passionate about his work - he even checked in on me the evening after the procedure to ensure I was recovering well and answered my random questions throughout the recovery process. I will only be going to Dr. Berman for any and all future procedures! As a bonus, all the supporting members of Dr. Berman’s practice we’re absolutely lovely as well. They made scheduling and coordinating a breeze!
  • My surgery with Dr. Berman went as expected per our consultation. The smart lipo worked great for me and got me to look forward to going back to the gym and once again enjoying my active lifestyle. Man-boobs are gone and my workout results are much more noticeable. And the best thing of all is that my wife can't keep her hands off of me. Thank you Dr. Berman!
  • I have been dreaming of getting liposuction since I was 15 years old. I carry my weight in an “apple shape” - lean legs while all my weight goes straight to my upper body (specifically my arms and stomach), making me appear disproportional even during the healthiest times of my life. When I got engaged, I decided to finally take the plunge for SmartLipo. From consultation to post-op, Dr. Berman has been absolutely incredible. I felt no discomfort during the procedure, had minimal to no downtime after, and Dr. Berman personally and consistently checked in with me during recovery. It’s evident he loves what he does and cares about his patients. I can’t recommend him enough!

    I just want to say thank you so much to Dr. David E. Berman and his warm and friendly staff. I had SmartLipo done on my flanks and abdomen in September 2020. I am very happy with the results and I look forward to even better results in another 2 months. If you are considering any kind of plastic surgery or procedure, I highly recommend Dr. Berman. He will give you the best possible outcome that is personally suited to you. You can trust that you will be in the best hands. If I feel I need any future procedures, I will most certainly go to Dr. Berman.

    A few months ago, Dr. Berman performed a smart lipo procedure on my chin/neck area. This had been increasingly bothering me for the past several years. Before the surgery, he was very thoughtful in detailing what to expect and all my options. The procedure was painless and the recovery just as described. There was a marked improvement even after only 3 weeks and the area continues to improve. It is so hard to wait for the full healed results! 3 months in, I am very pleased with the results. Thank you so much!
  • Better_Self2021
    I had a Smart Lipo procedure by Dr. Berman back in April, and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process starting from the initial consultation. They provided me with detailed information regarding the procedure, what to expect and what not to expect during and after the procedure. Their staff were friendly and attentive to listen to my concerns and answered all of the my questions. During the procedure, they made sure that I was 100% comfortable and aware of what was happening. Dr. Berman makes sure each and every patient is taken care of before, during, and after the procedure. What makes him and his staff different from others I've seen is that they are timely with appointments and very professional. I've also received jaw line botox a few times by Dr. Berman, and the results are better than I expected! I would recommend Dr. Berman and his team for anyone who is looking to get plastic surgery or procedure done.

    I have never felt better in my life! I had a breast reduction, tummy tuck and lipo on my flanks with Dr. Berman. Best doc and staff ever! Highly recommend! I look amazing, thanks to his great skills!

    "SmartLipo with Dr. Berman IS A MUST! Fantastic results and so much fun! An excellent doctor and the team, that works hard to serve and handle with care their patients always deserve appreciation. My husband and I were honored how all of you, starting from initial contact, and assistance, treated us. Your and your staff’s professionalism, kindness, knowledge, and overall approach make such a difference. I’m sure that many of your patients would have recommended you and your whole staff as good doctors - but I am going one step further to recommend you as a great human being. Your care leading up to the surgery and after the surgery was more than enough for me! Above all, more than a good doctor, I value the fact that you were a good listener and advisor. Caring doctors like you and your staff made this surgery, above all, professional, friendly, and pleasing. Thank you for your effective analysis and diagnosis and I'm especially grateful for teaching me the difference between Fact and Faith: Fact is when any ordinary doctor diagnoses condition in a report. Faith is when good doctors like you give their patients fabulous, unconditional care, knowledgeable and firm advice, and the strength to recover. Before saying one more time that you are an extraordinary doctor, I want to tell you that you are an extraordinary human being, well-wisher, and angel in disguise. Dear Dr. Berman, we will always value your professionalism and kindness, You’re such a delightful person and a dedicated doctor, you truly are an inspiration! Stay blessed. Branka Dobbertin"

    Great practice. Great results and excellent care. The staff is very responsive and informative. And Dr. Berman is extremely accessible. He encourages you to contact him directly if you have questions or concerns. I would highly recommend this office.

    The service was really really excellent. The front desk staff Maria was super friendly and helpful. Dr Berman is excellent!!. Dr Berman gives consultation and explains the surgical results in realistic way. I was nervous about the results of surgery, as this was first time for me. Also, I was asking for more removal of fat tissues. But, Dr Berman knew very well, how much fat tissues should be removed. He corrected my understandings, and the result of surgery is awesome! I'm still in the process of healing. But, I can really notice that results are very good, and I'm loving it! Good thing is Dr provides many follow up consultations as well. Thank you Dr Berman and the staff for your excellent service.

    I had smart lipo followed by a tummy tuck. First I want to say that Dr Berman is probably the most personable and pleasant surgeon you'd ever deal with. On top of that, he is extremely knowledgeable, patient and compassionate. My tummy tuck happened on a Wednesday, and by Monday I returned to work. Granted I had a funny walk, but it's incredible how fast that happened. Now 8 days after surgery, I am a lot more comfortable. I even went shopping yesterday. My tummy is visibly flatter even though I am still swollen. I cannot wait to see the final results but am already so happy with the outcome. I would recommend Dr Berman to anyone looking for a great surgeon. You will not be disappointed.

    Dr. Berman helped me find a less invasive solution to removing stubborn cheek/jowl area pouches that were unfazed by diet and exercise. He used laser lipo as opposed to other surgeons who were recommending a facelift with questionable effectiveness. The procedure was quick and easy, as was the recovery, and the results were great. I appreciated that he took the time to find the right solution for me.

    Dr. Berman is amazing, communicates very well and answers all your questions. I got my smartlipo only yesterday and the whole process very smooth. The doc even followed up few times to make sure I am doing ok. More to come as I start seeing results.
  • If I could give 10 stars, I would. Dr. Berman is the best. I had Smart Lipo done to my entire back. The WHOLE time, he was so accommodating and made sure that I was ok. I was the definition of anxious before the procedure. But Dr. Berman assured me that everything would be fine and he addressed ALL of my questions in detail. I am healing wonderfully and I'm glad that I chose Dr. Berman!
  • After having 5 children I was having trouble getting rid of the stubborn fat around my belly button area, I exercise, eat well etc. Not matter what, that area would not go away. Dr Berman was actually the second consult I went to, I decided to go with him because he and his staff are welcoming and kind and his work speaks for itself. I feel at home here. I am only 2 weeks post recovery and am already seeing great results. Dr B gives his cell phone number to post op clients which was amazing to have him at my fingertips when I had questions. I am so glad I made the decision to get smartlipo! Thank you Dr Berman and all the amazing staff! I am excited to see the continued progress! I would absolutely do this all over again!
  • Dr. Berman is an absolute artist and a caring professional. I’ve had several procedures, and each time, he takes his time to understand concerns, applies his artistic eye and gets incredible results. At times during consultation, he has told me not to consider certain things that I came in for, explaining why they would not be in my best interest aesthetically. He has saved me money, frustration, and several times even pointed me in a different direction that was far more results oriented. Dr. Berman also has a kind demeanor which truly makes me feel at ease. He is a true professional. Accredited and accomplished. I trust his eye, his honesty, and his professional office environment.
  • Dr. Berman was great! He was knowledgeable about Smartlipo and was very helpful through the whole process. It has been two weeks since my procedure and I feel great! I can already see results and can't wait to see what I will look like when I am completely healed. I was able to return to work the next day with not much discomfort and returned to a light workout routine after 5 days.
  • I had an amazing smart lipo experience with Dr. Berman! Personalized approach and great results! I even sent my friends his way, he is gifted!!! I see my abs more defined and waist thinner, that’s exactly what I wanted! The best part is that the doctor would share his own number with patients to give them a piece of mind in case something bothers them.
  • Dr. Berman is the best surgeon hands down. It is not up for debate. I previously saw another surgeon for liposuction, had a horrifying experience. I saw Dr. Berman for liposuction for three areas, and the difference working with him is night and day. Throughout the entire process he was accommodating, easy going, and very easy to talk to. He understands your goals and needs, which is generally hard to find in a surgeon. After my surgery I was up and hour later walking my dogs and back to my usual routine. I’m now two weeks post-op, and I’m getting ready to book with him again for another round of liposuction. He is the only surgeon I will ever use from here on out. Thank you Dr. Berman & staff! You have helped me immensely!
  • I don’t know where to start. Dr. Berman is the nicest man you’ll ever meet. I went there for during my separation/divorce desperate for a new me. I had been with my ex since I was 15 and my self-confidence wasn’t there. I had loose skin around my belly button from a belly ring while pregnant. He fixed my belly button area as well as Smart Lipo and Botox. He didn’t push anything which was nice to meet someone looking at what’s best instead of dollar signs. Dr. B gave me back my confidence. I actually met someone the same month I divorced! We are now happily married and have a little girl together. Even with Botox Dr. Berman will let you know upfront if he doesn’t think you need it. He’s very knowledgeable on nutrition as well.
  • freddyrealself
    I had SmartLipo with Dr. Berman, and am very impressed with the results. I'm equally impressed with the communication and responsiveness from Dr. Berman and his staff. Everyone was very knowledgeable and attentive, which made for an overall great first-time experience.
  • djabael
    I am still trying to find the words...... Bedside manner 1000%! Dr. Berman understands me and gives me good tips. I am having a hard time giving up the carbs, which we all know are the key to unlocking one's maximum weight loss capacity. He gives me useful tips on how to gradually and painlessly phase them down (not out) and how to make my limited exercise time really count. I had my SmartLipo procedure about 5 months ago and I can see and feel the results. I still have a ways to go but I feel confident in knowing that I have a true partner, doctor, and motivator in Dr. Berman. The staff at his office are really personable and I feel their support with each visit. Calling to schedule or reschedule appointments is a breeze. Visiting Dr. Berman was the best decision I made!
  • Persistent771
    Dr. Berman is a miracle maker! I was so discouraged after months of yo-yo dieting that I thought it would never be possible for me to lose weight. My stomach was such a heavy insecurity of mine, to the point that it made me not want to shop, go out with friends, or vacation at the beach. I felt so lost and needed something to propel myself forward in my journey to lose fat. This procedure was the best decision I could have ever made for myself! After the procedure I gained this new sense of confidence that only grew as the months passed and my diet and exercise routine became part of my lifestyle. Dr. Berman's bedside manor is the best I have ever experienced. He was honest and never pushed anything on me, told me what I should expect from this procedure, and the fact that I needed to make a change in my diet if I wanted to maintain and improve my new self. If you are still thinking about/waiting to get this done, don't. Do it!
