Dr. Fredric M. Barr of Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery was recently interviewed for a CBS 12 News Special Report highlighting the growing popularity of mini-liposuction for men.

"This has become pretty attractive to a lot of people because it's in the office, it's a local anesthetic, no pills or IV's. Recovery time is minimal."
