Specialties

Dr. Lopez specializes in body cosmetic surgery and sculpting.

She is an expert in the Avelar abdominoplasty which she has published three peer review articles in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery.  The combination of liposuction with skin resection gives better sculpting for higher BMI patients and has been shown to be safer than traditional abdominoplasties due to salvaging the superior neuromuscular bundles.

Fat grafting is another speciality and with the popularity of the Brazilian Butt lifts, fat grafting to the butt has become another popular procedure that gives great aesthetic results without the lengthy recovery of buttock implants.

Vaser liposuction with etching or Hi Definition is of the abdomen is also becoming more popular and Dr. Lopez has been having very good results.

We also offer the gambit of nonsurgical procedures including neurotoxins, fillers, PRP rejuvenation and our current favorite which is Dermapen treatments with growth factors or fat.
