What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure used to sculpt and define the contours of the face and body by removing unwanted fat deposits. In general, liposuction works by suctioning or scraping out fatty tissues from the body to sculpt and define areas, such as your upper arms, calves, knees, thighs, and face. Dr. Jaime Schwartz has been performing liposuction surgeries for many years, and offers SmoothLipo as his signature liposuction procedure, done exclusively in his Beverly Hills office. He has an expert's view of how to shape and contour your body to meet your individual goals and needs.

How is Liposuction (Smoothlipo) Performed?
Tumescent liposuction or "super-wet" liposuction involves injecting large volumes of fluid, which is a combination of saline and a local anesthetic, into the targeted treatment area before suctioning out the fatty tissues. Clients that would benefit from tumescent liposuction typically have larger areas being treated, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, and are looking for smoother results with minimal pain.
Depending on the areas being treated with liposuction, this tumescent fluid allows Dr. Schwartz to perform the surgery using local anesthesia only, or IV sedation (TIVA), which speeds up your recovery time significantly.
In suction-assisted lipoplasty (SAL), Dr. Schwartz uses a small diameter tube or cannula to suction the fat and fluid by moving the tube in a gentle fashion in and out of the fatty area while also constantly feeling the suctioned area to compare thickness and smoothness. Clients that would benefit from suction-assisted liposuction typically have a smaller volume of fat being removed and want a more precise, sculpted result.
During your liposuction consultation at our Beverly Hills or Dubai office, Dr. Schwartz will review the different liposuction options, and together, you can form a plan of treatment that makes sense for you.
How Long Does Liposuction Take?
The length of your liposuction procedure may range from a few minutes (facial) to several hours for large extremities, such as the thighs. The length of your procedure and the type of anesthesia used will be discussed in your consultation with Dr. Schwartz. Each patient has a unique set of goals, which results is a different length of time for each SmartLipo procedure.
What Results Can I Expect From SmartLipo Liposuction?
After SmartLipo surgery, you will likely experience some fluid drainage from the small incisions. Dr. Schwartz may fit you with a snug elastic garment to wear over the treated area for a few weeks to control swelling and to help your skin better conform to its new contours.
Dr. Schwartz will give you instructions for showering and changing the dressing, and you’ll be seen in the office for a follow-up in a few days after surgery. Healing is a gradual process, and Dr. Schwartz recommends that you start walking and moving around as soon as possible to reduce swelling and to help prevent blood clots from forming. You will begin to feel better after about a week or two, and you should be back at work within a few days following your procedure.
Liposuction (Smart Lipo) Reviews
"By far one of the best plastic surgeon around LA. After the first consultation appointment I had with him, I had no doubt I’d wanted to have my TT and lipo performed by him. One month later I’m already healing from my surgery. Dr. Schwartz and his staff (Amanda, Sasha, Maricella, Robin, and all of the others) don’t need to try too hard to give an excellent customer service and attention to their patients; it’s already natural in them. Thank you so much."- V.C. / Google / Dec 12, 2019
"I was really pleased with the tummy tuck I received and the aftercare I received as well. I was nervous during my pre-op but the doctor had such a pleasant comfortable manner that I immediately felt at ease. He explained things thoroughly about the procedure, and encouraged any questions I had. Ladies, I cant emphasize enough how wonderful of a doctor and surgeon Mr. Schwartz is. If you're looking or researching for a surgeon, look no further. Dr. Schwartz is the best choice you could make. I'm very happy with the results of the tummy tuck, it's a life changer in so many ways. I know it can be scary choosing a surgeon, but Dr. Schwartz really cares about his patients and his professionalism is superb. I cant say enough about this doctor."- S.T. / Google / Mar 11, 2021
"I truly have no complaints about Dr. Schwartz and his team. Dr. Schwartz is totally professional and knowledgeable. He will answer any questions you may have and also provide recommendations. Everyone there is friendly and kind. Communication isn’t difficult. I had a TT and lipo and I’m 5 days post op and already walking without my walker and the pain is actually manageable. The entire process has been a lot less intense than I imagined. I totally recommend him for your surgery needs. I grade him and staff with an A+ and I would definitely return to him. Moreover, they take care of everything other doctors would just allow their patients to take care of such as recommendations for after care, fajas, post-op appointments, etc. lovely! Thanks, Dr. Schwartz, Michelle, Allie, and Team."- J.T. / Google / Mar 09, 2021
"I contacted Dr. Schwartz office via his web page and I received a fast response. I was able to upload my information and photos and I was able to receive an over the phone consultation right away.

I am having my 1st surgery soon and I am super excited to see my results. I highly recommend to have a consultation with Dr. Schwartz. His whole office is amazing!"- K.B. / Google / Jul 16, 2020
"Dr Schwartz is fantastic! He has the kindest bedside manner, as he is is patient, making sure to explain everything and answer all my questions. I felt extremely comfortable with him the entire time (despite the fact that I am usually very shy, especially with my body). My priority is to keep things natural and Dr Schwartz was on the same page. He has incredible skill. I could not be happier with my result!"- R.L. / Google / Feb 07, 2019
