Local news show showcases popular Palm Beach plastic surgeon and his innovative Awake Lift™ procedure.

( -- July 14, 2016) West Palm Beach, FLORIDA --

Dr. Fredric Barr, head of Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in Palm Beach, Florida was featured on WPBF 25 News at 11:00 on July 07, 2016. In the segment, WPBF’s cameras were rolling as he performed his ground-breaking Awake Lift™ procedure on client Robin Berman.

Robin Berman is a woman in her fifties who was longing for a renewed look. She knew it was time to do something more than just continue her daily skin routine and was looking to enhance her neck and jawline without going under the knife. That’s when Dr. Barr, a nationally-renowned plastic surgeon, recommended the Awake Lift™ to Berman.

The Awake Lift™ is a procedure that can be done right in the office without anesthetic or a long recovery period. Ideal candidates are younger patients who need a lift but aren’t necessarily ready for a total face lift.

Berman’s goals were simple: “I do not want to look different. I am just hoping for a refreshed look and to preserve what I have as I continue to age”.

Cameras filmed Dr. Barr as he performed the Awake Lift™ procedure on Berman, who remained awake throughout the entire procedure. Dr. Barr worked on one side of her face at a time and even gave Berman a break halfway through to relax and have something to eat before continuing on. Berman is shown reading a magazine during the procedure.

According to Dr. Barr, clients have been very pleased with their results, including the reduced recovery time. The average patient has minimal swelling and bruising after the procedure, and typically, patients are up and back to normal in less than a day.

Halfway through her procedure, Berman likes what she sees: “Wow, I am absolutely amazed. I can see the difference, a huge difference”.

Dr. Barr explains the best candidate for an Awake Lift™ are women between the ages of 30 and 55 who want to focus on the jowl and upper neck, or someone who does not want to go under the knife for a full-blown procedure.

The Awake Lift™ procedure costs about $7500.
