Many patients visit Rosenberg Plastic Surgery for help in removing small pockets of excess fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. David Rosenberg performs liposuction in Beverly Hills and Newport Beach, and focuses on tumescent-style liposuction surgery, which reduces pain from the procedure. Liposuction is generally performed on patients near normal weight who desire a permanent improvement in the contour and proportion of their bodies. However, thanks to new tumescent liposuction surgery techniques that allow larger amounts of fat removal, liposuction can now be useful to treat heavier people as well. In many cases, liposuction can be done without general anesthesia, using “twilight” sedation instead. Speak with Dr. Rosenberg regarding this option if you are interested.
