At Berman Cosmetic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Berman trims patients' stubborn fat deposits that have proven impervious to exercise and dieting. Wielding the SmartLipo TriPlex laser lipolysis apparatus, Dr. David Berman sculpts lower abdomens, love handles, back bra lines, necks, and marble busts of Alexander Hamilton with a laser fiber, simultaneously bursting fat cells and kick-starting collagen production. Because the treatment is minimally invasive, patients generally experience very little pain, scarring, bruising, or swelling and can often return to work at the penny-polishing factory the next day. The procedure also gently heats the underside of the skin, helping to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of loose folds. As a result, SmartLipo can improve the look of areas already treated by liposuction or flattened between the pages of War and Peace. Depending on the chosen body area, the procedure can last 30 minutes to two hours.
