Dr. Rod J. Rohrich Recognized as Best Liposuction Surgeon in the United States by Newsweek


Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has been recognized by Newsweek as the best liposuction surgeon in the United States in their ranked list of top performing plastic surgeons.

DALLAS, Oct. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has been ranked as the top liposuction surgeon in the United States in Newsweek's new peer reviewed list of top performing plastic surgeons for 2023.

"It is imperative that prospective patients have an honest discussion with their plastic surgeon regarding goals and expectations in order to ensure the most successful outcomes," Dr. Rod J. Rohrich

Working with data analytics provider, Statista Inc., Newsweek has published a ranked list of the best plastic surgeons in the United States in each of five different categories of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures: breast augmentation, liposuction, facelift, rhinoplasty and eyelid surgery. 

These lists were developed as the result of a national survey with more than 2,000 medical experts from doctors, surgeons, plastic surgery clinic managers, and health care professionals working in plastic surgery. During the survey period, over 8,400 votes were collected and analyzed for each cosmetic surgery procedure. Participants were asked to name the leading plastic surgeons for each cosmetic procedure in their own state as well as provide the same for out-of-state surgeons. The recommendations portion of the national survey counts as 85% of the total overall scores.

The participants were then asked to assess the quality of care (e.g., consultation with doctor, complications, follow-up care, outcome) to further differentiate the perceived reputation of each plastic surgeon. These answers, along with accreditation statuses were used to calculate the associated quality score portion, which weighs as the remaining 15% of the total overall scores. 

In the end, the survey results identified 358 individual surgeons which were then ranked into lists of the top 150 in each of the five specialties, with the specific rankings based on their total overall score.

Dr. Rohrich received the highest overall score and thus was ranked at the top of the list as the number one best liposuction plastic surgeon in the country. Dr. Rohrich also appears in each of the other procedure ranked lists; number one in facelift, number one in eyelid surgery, number one in rhinoplasty, as well as number three in the breast augmentation category. 

Dr. Rohrich uses an advanced technique of body contouring surgery combining ultrasound-assisted liposuction to obtain more uniform results, with a super-wet technique of liposuction to enhance overall safety. He has written extensively on this procedure and has demonstrated and taught this technique to thousands of plastic surgeons worldwide.

"Every person has their own unique physical characteristics and anatomy," says Dr. Rohrich. "It is imperative that prospective patients have an honest discussion with their plastic surgeon regarding goals and expectations in order to ensure the most successful outcomes. Liposuction is an art and a science, as is all of plastic surgery."
