Meet Dr. Suzanne Trott

Double board-certified Beverly Hills, CA Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Suzanne Trott's goal is to improve the lives of her patients through enhancement of self-esteem. Her passionate approach to plastic surgery combines artistic vision and skill, while fostering a special patient-physician communication in a safe, comfortable, and friendly environment. Dr. Trott is known as the Lipo Queen™ as she works diligently to attain the aesthetic goals of her patients during procedures like liposuction (traditional liposculpture and SmartLipo laser liposuction), breast augmentation with implants, tummy tuck, breast augmentation with fat transfer, and injectable wrinkle treatments. As the creator of the innovative VIXEN Shapewear, Dr. Trott is the first female plastic surgeon to design comfortable shapewear for her patients to wear to improve the patient's contours and enhance compression after surgery.

Dr. Trott is board certified in both plastic and general surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. She currently serves as an Assistant Professor at the University of California, San Diego Medical Center helping the next generation of doctors learn more about plastic and reconstructive surgery.
