Dr. Newman is also proud to be one of the few plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills offering the IDEAL IMPLANT® to women from throughout the Los Angeles area. An exciting, new alternative to traditional saline and silicone gel implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT is filled with saline but includes layers within the outer shell that enhance the softer, more natural feel associated with silicone gel implants. We encourage you to see this groundbreaking implant for yourself by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Newman. Together, you can decide if the IDEAL IMPLANT is the right choice for you.
Dr. Newman closes incisions with a topical skin adhesive to avoid using external sutures. The topical adhesive creates a barrier to further reduce the risk of infection and scarring, in addition to allowing patients to shower the day after surgery.
For women who desire natural breast augmentation and want a modest increase in the size of their breasts, fat transfer is an attractive option. Fat transfer breast augmentation involves taking fat from an area of the body where it's unwanted and re-injecting the purified fat cells into the breasts using a specialized cannula. Dr. Newman uses liposuction to remove the fat and then removes the impurities. Women who want to increase their breast size by a cup size or less are excellent candidates for natural breast augmentation. Dr. Newman may also use the fat transfer technique as part of a breast augmentation with implants to create a natural-looking buffer between the implants and the breast skin.
Dr. Newman is an authority on breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy. He co-authored a chapter on breast lift procedures with and without implants in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, a book published in 2009. A breast lift performed with or without implants can restore perkiness to sagging breasts. For patients with mild sagging, Dr. Newman uses an advanced technique to tighten the breast skin that only leaves a scar around the nipple. Many patients are excited to hear about this procedure due to the minimal scarring.
For patients with more moderate sagging, Dr. Newman prefers to use a newer technique which includes reshaping the deeper layers of breast tissue for improved final results. This technique can be accomplished through an incision that runs vertically down the underside of the breast. This is referred to as a vertical or "lollipop" breast lift. For many patients, the vertical breast lift provides enough fullness and projection without breast implants to achieve their cosmetic goals.
"It's been almost almost 4 months since my breast augmentation and I can't even express how happy I am! My only regret is that I didn't meet him sooner!"

Adolescent boys and young men with overdeveloped breasts often encounter teasing and feel self-conscious about removing their shirts at a pool or the beach. The condition, gynecomastia, can be corrected through plastic surgery that removes fatty and glandular tissue. The best treatment depends on the extent and cause of an individual patient's condition. Liposuction and surgical excision are the 2 most common approaches to gynecomastia correction. Using these techniques Dr. Newman creates a chest that looks more masculine by:
Many of Dr. Newman's patients are physically fit and follow good exercise and dietary habits, but have areas of the body that cause them to be self-conscious. It could be stubborn abdominal fat that a mom can't get rid of after having children, or "love handles" that develop as a man hits middle age.
Dr. Newman can recommend an optimal surgical plan to re-contour your body in a way that meets your goals.
Liposuction is a great option for both women and men who have areas of unwanted fat despite being otherwise healthy and fit. Dr. Newman makes tiny, discreet incisions through which to insert a long, thin suction tube, called a cannula. He carefully guides the cannula through the fat, removing and sculpting it to reveal the desired contours in areas such as the arms, flanks, abdomen, hips, and thighs. Recovery is fairly straightforward, and fat removal is permanent.
A tummy tuck can give you a flatter stomach by removing excess skin after pregnancy or significant weight loss. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Newman makes a strategically placed incision just above the pubic area and below the bikini line, so you can go to the beach without feeling self-conscious. For patients who have had children, a tummy tuck also repairs abdominal muscles stretched by pregnancy.
Dr. Newman combines cosmetic breast surgery with body contouring procedures for women seeking to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies. A mommy makeover typically includes a tummy tuck and liposuction combined with a breast lift and augmentation. Combining the procedures in a single operation is safe and offers the benefit of a "one-and-done" recovery. It can also be cost-effective. Dr. Newman creates a detailed surgical plan for mommy makeover procedures after performing a thorough physical examination during your consultation.
"My breast implants and tummy tuck are flawless and everything looks completely natural, which was of great concern to me. I couldn't be happier. Clothes finally fit well and I feel like a new woman."

Many women — and men — are turning to plastic surgery to give their buttocks more rounded contours. Silicone buttock implants are an option, but the Brazilian butt lift is probably the most popular method of buttock enhancement. A Brazilian butt lift involves extracting fat from another area of the body using liposuction and injecting it into the buttocks in layers so the result looks natural and aesthetically pleasing. A good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift is someone who has enough unwanted fat in other areas of the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, or lower back, to adequately enhance the buttocks.
Dr. Newman specializes in fat transfer techniques to enhance the body. Fat transfer has been used for years for facial rejuvenation, but its use for breast and buttock augmentation is becoming much more common. A fat transfer procedure begins with harvesting fat from an area of the body, such as the flanks, abdomen, thighs, or lower back, where it is unwanted. The next step is to remove impurities, leaving behind healthy, viable fat cells. The third step is to re-inject the fat cells using a specialized cannula. Dr. Newman carefully layers the fat in a way that provides natural-looking results. Enhancing the buttocks using your own fat is also typically preferable to implants, which can be uncomfortable.
Massive weight loss is a significant accomplishment that can take months or years to achieve. In many cases, skin stretched by excess weight doesn't shrink back to fit the body's new contours. A significant percentage of men and women who lose a lot of weight after bariatric surgery and/or lifestyle changes end up with excess skin hanging from their arms, thighs, and abdomens. Dr. Newman helps these individuals complete their transformations with plastic surgery. These cosmetic procedures include:
Circumferential body lift: Massive weight loss patients often have excess skin all around their waistline. A circumferential body lift is the best treatment procedure in these cases. Also called a lower body lift or belt lipectomy, the procedure is similar to a tummy tuck. The difference is that it removes excess skin and fat around the entire waistline. Dr. Newman tightens abdominal muscles during the operation, which results in a flatter stomach. He also makes the incisions as low as possible around the waist so they can be hidden by clothing and swimsuits.
Arm lift: Dr. Newman makes an incision starting at the underarm area and extending along the inside of the upper arm to the elbow. After removing excess skin and fat, he closes the incision and ensures the arm's new contour is smooth. Patients wear a special, tight-fitting garment during recovery to help maintain the upper arm's new shape.
Thigh lift: The surgical technique Dr. Newman uses for a thigh lift depends on how much excess skin is present and the patient's cosmetic goals. An inner thigh lift involves an incision in the groin area that extends to the knee. An outer thigh lift is a more complicated procedure that includes incisions extending to the buttocks and the removal of more tissue. Liposuction may be combined with either procedure to get optimal results.
