Dr. Roth performs most of his procedures at the nearby Westside Surgical Hospital. Dr. Roth typically uses local anesthesia, although general sedation is also available. After you are comfortable, the doctor will create several tiny incisions in the treatment area. He will then inject a special anesthetic solution, which will swell the fat cells and shrink the surrounding blood vessels. This step makes it easier for Dr. Roth to isolate the fat cells, and minimizes post-operative swelling and discomfort. Next, he will gently loosen the fat cells before suctioning them out with a small tube called a cannula. Liposuction usually takes about one to two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Recovery from liposuction is usually easy and relatively quick. You will need to avoid strenuous activity for the first few weeks, but you will typically be able to return to work in less than a week. Some post-surgical swelling is normal, and it may be several months until you are able see the final results of your surgery. However, as the swelling continues to subside, you will enjoy a sleeker, more youthful figure, and a huge boost of confidence.
Although liposuction permanently removes fat cells, the treatment does not prevent new fat cells from developing. To maintain the results of your treatment, you should exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet. With proper care, your enhanced figure could last for years to come.
Following your thigh lift, it may be several months before your final results become evident. You should expect some swelling, which will begin to dissipate after a few weeks. As healing progresses, you will start to enjoy the many benefits of thigh lift surgery. Most noticeably, you will have smoother, more sculpted legs. If you recently lost a large amount of weight, you may find that your thighs are more proportionate to your healthy new body contours. Whether you are undergoing surgery to repair stretched skin or simply to reverse the effects of aging, the procedure can have dramatic results on your self-confidence.
Inner thigh lift

Medial thigh lift
Incisions inside your legs that may extend to your buttocks
Mini thigh lift

After creating the incisions, Dr. Roth will raise your thigh muscles. He will use small sutures to keep the muscles permanently lifted. If needed, he can perform liposuction to remove excess pockets of fat. When he has created the desired contours, he will trim off any damaged or stretched skin before closing the incisions.
Buttock augmentation improves the natural curve of the patients who feel unhappy about their physical appearance. People who have smaller and flatter buttocks can get the figure they want through buttock implants. Aside from getting fuller and bigger buttocks, this type of surgery also improves the patient’s body profile. Since some people do not develop bigger gluteal muscles even when working out, one solution in having a proportionate body is through augmentation of the buttocks. While any person who wishes to have buttock implants can get one, it is important that the patient is healthy and free from any diseases. In Dr. Roth’s buttock augmentation program, clients are carefully walked through the entire procedure as early as the first consultation. Currently, there are two types of buttock implants, and there are several reasons why some people choose one over the other:
Also known as Brazilian butt lift, fat transfer uses human fat as the fillers in this certain kind of buttock augmentation. The process of fat transfer starts by harvesting the fat of the patient to undergo the surgery. Once the surgeon has enough fat to use for the procedure, the fat then is injected in different parts of the buttocks to create an even contour. Brazilian butt lift usually goes with liposuction.
Silicone implants use silica-filled gel that resembles the shape of human buttocks. These implants come in different shapes and sizes to suit the patient’s body accordingly. By creating a small incision in the depressed area between the buttocks, the surgeon can safely insert the implants to the upper area of the buttocks.
Dr. Roth utilizes sophisticated techniques to perform labiaplasty, such as:
Central wedge resection
For this more complex surgery, Dr. Roth will create a triangular incision on the back portion of the labia minora. He will then use this to pull and tighten the surrounding tissue. Dr. Roth will suture the tissue to keep it in a more ideal position. This technique is virtually scar-free, so it typically provides more natural looking rejuvenation.
Dr. Roth will help you choose which type of labiaplasty is appropriate for you based on your needs and preferences.
Before your appointment, you will be given a combination of anesthesia to ensure that you are kept comfortable and relaxed during your procedure. Dr. Roth usually prefers general anesthesia, but he can also use other methods. Dr. Roth offers both full and mini tummy tucks. During a traditional abdominoplasty, Dr. Roth will make an incision between your navel and pubic hairline. Then he will lift the skin to remove surface fat deposits and tighten the abdominal muscles. Liposuction is often combined with tummy tuck to provide more comprehensive contouring. Typically, he will also relocate your naval to a more youthful, natural-looking position, higher up on your stomach. If you only want to address fat deposits and sagging skin on your lower abdomen, you may be a candidate for a mini tummy tuck. This procedure requires a smaller incision, and it does not involve relocating your belly button. No matter which treatment option you choose, Dr. Roth will use a combination of skin adhesives and sutures to close the incision and minimize visible scarring.
Dr. Roth also offers tummy tucks as part of full body contouring. This highly personalized treatment plan can combine several body lift procedures, including tummy tuck, thigh lift, arm lift, and more. This unique approach is most common among patients who have recently undergone massive weight loss.
