Melt Away Stubborn Areas of Fat with Laser Precision!!!

SmartLipo is a revolutionary approach to liposuction allows Dr. Berman, IN THE OFFICE, to melt fat. 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 revolutionary SmartLipo system with the newest upgrade, the TriPlex system. A board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Berman can help you determine if you would best achieve your desired results with SmartLipo, ultrasonic/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 may continue to improve for six months or more following the SmartLipo procedure.

Want 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—and a variety of ways to show them off.

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, this finely-tuned procedure is tailored to your body; you may be asked to stand for a portion of the procedure to ensure maximum results.

I had great experience with Dr. Berman and his staff including Luba and Maria

I had great experience with Dr. Berman and his staff including Luba and Maria. Very friendly staff and they ensured that all my request was taken into consideration. Dr. Berman was very detailed during my consultation and made me very comfortable before the procedure. The best thing is I was awake the whole time and had a fast recovery. I was able to work next day and did not take any pain medication. I'm still in the process of healing and already happy with my one month result. Dr. Berman explained me that as time progresses results will be more prominent. Thank you Dr. Berman and the staff for your service.


Results Driven!! Excellence with a Personal Touch.

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 ones 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 Smart Lipo 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 in 2019!


Best Thing I’ve Done!

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!


Smart Lipo

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!


Great Results, and Awesome Staff.

I had smart lipo 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.


Honest plastic surgeon

Over the past year I have been one of the Dr. Berman’s patient I have done abdominal liposuction and lower eyelid Blepharoplasty with him and I have received a very good and satisfying results. Dr. Berman is very experienced in his field in fact he is one of the best surgeon in the area. I shopped around before my procedure and found him the most experienced in the area. He is very honest and provides good recommendations. Also, the prices are very reasonable. His office is very clean and the staffs are very nice. Sophia the office manager is very nice and courteous. If you look for honest and the most experienced plastic surgeon I will definitely recommend him you will be in good hand.
