Dr. David Halpern offers cutting-edge technology at his Tampa Bay office, including the LiLa Strawberry laser, which is one of the easiest and least invasive methods of body contouring on the market.
Times They Are A Changing

The recent surge in popularity for cosmetic procedures is largely credited with scientific advancements, as well as changing public perceptions. If you could choose a procedure that reduces risk, scarring, downtime, and costs, why wouldn’t you?
Dr. David Halpern is committed to bringing you the very latest scientifically proven advances in cosmetic surgery. As a triple-board-certified plastic surgeon, he is among the most highly educated professionals in the field. In other words: he doesn’t simply graduate from med school and go into practice on his own. He regularly attends industry events and takes new courses to expand his knowledge base and keep a fresh perspective.
