Sterling, Virginia (VA) Liposuction, Abdominoplasty & Tummy Tuck by
Dr. David E. Berman, M.D., F.R.C.S.C.
Dr. David Berman Board Certified Plastic Surgeon


Sterling Plastic Surgeon Dr. David Berman

Dr. David Berman, a board certified plastic surgeon, is recognized as one of the most talented and experienced cosmetic surgeons in the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area. Located in Sterling, VA, he has been performing over 20 years of body contouring procedures with a focus on: liposuction, liposculpting and many other body contouring procedures such as tummy tucks and upper arm lifts.

One technique Dr. Berman often uses is Tumescent liposuction. This procedure uses large volumes of fluid which are instilled into the targeted area prior to the procedure. This fluid is able to loosen the fat as well as decrease bruising and post operation discomfort. Tumescent liposuction also generally results in a quicker recovery time. Almost all of Dr. Berman’s liposuction procedures are enhanced by using a laser-assisted or ultrasonic technique. This increases the amount of fat that is able to be removed in a less traumatic fashion.

Dr. Berman has the most advanced SmartLipo machine in northern Virginia. SmartLipo is a technologically advanced technique to remove small areas of fat anywhere on the body (besides the face presently). Patients are put under a local anesthetic or an oral sedation. The procedure is performed directly in Dr. Berman’s office, and the recovery time is quicker than that of traditional liposuction techniques. It is a simple procedure using tumescent fluid. A very tiny incision is made (3-5mm) and a fiber optic cable is inserted into the fat zone.

Laser lights are used to melt the fat and coagulate any blood vessels. Generally, there is little to no bruising. Following that, a liposuction cannula is passed in order to remove the liquefied fat. One suture will usually close the incision. Dr. Berman allows his patients to return to showering the next day and full exercising between seven and ten days. Something very important to realize is that improvement may continue for up to six months. Dr. Berman also believes that due to the heating of the skin during the SmartLipo process, additional skin tightening occurs.

Dr. Berman has been featured in several cosmetic surgery magazines such as Health and Beauty, Northern Virginia and Washington Magazine, and considered one of the best plastic surgeons in the Northern Virginia and Washington DC area.
