Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery’s Skin Activating Liposuction™
Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery’s Skin Activating LiposuctionTM is an approach to liposuction and liposculpture that seeks to address both your unwanted fat and the overlying skin. This treatment is used for both men and women seeking a slimmer and firmer appearance.
Traditional liposuction simply removes fat. But the surrounding skin can be left loose -- minimizing the desired effect. Lloyd Krieger, M.D., founder and Medical Director of Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, is utilizing a technique with the aim of preventing this potential problem. Dr. Krieger believes it is important to help your skin tighten so the treated areas have tauter and leaner-looking results.

During your liposuction procedure, Dr. Krieger intentionally irritates the underside of the skin. Tissues that are irritated tend to heal with some degree of internal scarring, which leads to contraction. By stimulating the skin during this extra step, the treated areas have both the fat and the skin addressed during the procedure.
Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery’s Skin Activating Liposuction™ can be used anywhere we do liposuction, from the chin to the chest to the love handles to the thighs. This approach also is useful in larger volume liposuction procedures, because in these cases the skin needs to shrink by a large amount.
Dr. Krieger's plastic surgery background provides him with a strong sense of overall aesthetic harmony. He uses this aesthetic sense to perform liposuction that creates a pleasing final shape for your body.
We value your safety during liposuction. For this reason, we do all our liposuction procedures in our government-certified outpatient surgery center. We use a physician anesthesiologist to monitor and maintain your comfort and safety during liposuction. This second physician maximizes your safety during and after your liposculpture. Having an anesthesiologist also minimizes your discomfort. Our state-of-the art facility includes one operating room which is used exclusively for our Beverly Hills liposuction procedures.
