If it’s not distributed evenly, you end up with stubborn pockets of fat, resulting in an out-of-shape overall look no matter how hard you train at the gym. When this occurs, Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Stark will likely recommend liposuction to surgically remove the excess volume that concerns you most – achieving a more slender and trim overall appearance.

The benefits of liposuction

There are a variety of benefits associated with undergoing liposuction in Calabasas with Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Stark, including:

  • A more beautiful body contour The main benefit is also the primary reason men and women seek out liposuction – the procedure inevitably results in a smoother and more beautiful body contour.
  • Enhanced confidence For many men and women, the existence of excess fat harms their confidence, causing them embarrassment and preventing them from living their lives fully. When those excess pockets of fat are removed, their self-esteem is often simultaneously renewed.
  • Address hard-to-reach problem areas Though liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss through diet and exercise, it can be used to successfully target the traditional trouble spots, such as the thighs, buttocks, flanks (love handles), abdomen, upper arms, and underneath the chin.

Areas commonly treated with liposuction

Liposuction can slenderize, reshape and sculpt a variety of areas throughout the body, including the following:

Neck and Face

By removing excess fat from this area, Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Stark are able to sculpt a more contoured jawline, slenderize the neck and achieve a slimmer and more youthful overall appearance.


Addressing excess fat throughout the abdomen, flanks and waistline creates a trim and slender body contour that will boost both your overall appearance and your feelings of self-confidence.


A common procedure among men, chest liposuction involves removing excess tissue that creates a more feminine chest appearance. In these cases, Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Stark will remove the extra volume to restore a defined, flat, and distinctly masculine overall look.

Thighs & Buttocks

An area that’s very commonly treated with liposuction, removing excess fat from the thighs and buttocks creates a sexier and more youthful profile.

Ultrasonic Liposuction

As a national speaker on ultrasonic liposuction, few surgeons are more qualified than Dr. Schwartz to perform this highly specialized procedure. During surgery, Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Stark will use a special cannula that sends ultrasonic sound waves into the pocket of fat you’re having removed. These sound waves work to break up the fat cells, making them easier to remove and allowing Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Stark to eliminate larger deposits of fat than is possible with more traditional methods. Ultrasonic liposuction also allows your doctor to tighten the surrounding skin, ensuring an optimal cosmetic outcome.

Tumescent Liposuction

During tumescent liposuction, Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Stark will inject a special solution into the pocket of fat you’re having removed. This fluid then causes the fat cells to swell, which makes them easier to remove. From there, they will use a cannula (a thin tube connected to a suction pump) to break up and remove the fat.
