Why Choose a Specialist?

Do an Internet search for “cosmetic surgeon in Houston” and you’ll find hundreds of doctors who offer a huge array of services, from nose jobs to calf implants and everything in between.

While these generalists can serve a wide range of patients, when it comes to specific services like liposuction, they may only perform a few procedures each month. Specialists like Dr. Bergeron offer a depth of expertise in their chosen procedures that cannot be matched by surgeons with more generalized practices. That expertise translates into maximum patient safety, superior results, and, ultimately, a better overall patient experience.

Q: Why does Dr. Bergeron offer both liposuction and nonsurgical medical weight loss programs?

A:   Contrary to what you might have heard, liposuction is not a weight loss method; rather, it is meant for contouring the body and removing fat that patients have not been able to lose through diet and exercise.

When overweight or obese patients come to Dr. Bergeron, our proven medical weight loss program allows us to help them shed extra pounds in the safest, healthiest way possible. As they approach their weight loss goals, Dr. Bergeron’s proven liposuction techniques can remove additional fat and give a pleasing shape to their new, slimmer bodies.

Q:  What is “bariatric medicine?”

A:   While many people associate the word “bariatric” with weight loss surgery, bariatric medicine is the branch of medicine that focuses on the general treatment of obesity. Because many patients who come to Dr. Bergeron for liposuction are also overweight or obese, he has a personal interest in helping these men and women achieve their weight loss goals.
