Washington DC - Overview of Liposuction
Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure, which offers the kinds of results a great diet and regular exercise can’t deliver on their own. While it should not be confused with a weight-loss strategy, an added bonus of liposuction can be the appearance of having shed many unwanted pounds.
At The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery, Washington D.C. liposuction is ideally suggested for patients who eat right and exercise frequently, but may have isolated areas of problematic fat.
The overall goal of liposuction is to treat those trouble spots to give you:
- A more slender appearance
- A body that’s free of unsightly bulges
- A body that has better contours and curves
- A body that has balanced proportions
The liposuction option that’s right for you will be decided in consultation with one of our trusted plastic surgeons. Read on to learn more about that decision process and the minimally-invasive liposuction options we offer our Washington D.C. clients, such as VASER® Lipo.
Washington DC - VASER® Lipo Overview
The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery proudly offers our Washington D.C. patients VASER® Lipo (among other body contouring procedures) because of its ability to:
- Highly define many areas of your body
- Target fat while leaving tissue unharmed
- Sculpt delicate areas in a highly precise way
- Remove fat in quantities which best benefit your body
VASER® Lipo has been known to offer proven results for everything from “minor touch-ups to major transformations” by letting plastic surgeons use ultrasound energy to target and remove fat in problem areas which are resistant to a proper diet and exercise.
The highly skilled plastic surgeons at The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery use VASER® Lipo tumescent liposuction to sculpt your body in areas large and small.
Fat removal using VASER® Lipo can address whole or specific areas of the body:
- Your Lower Body – Hips, Waist, Stomach, Thighs, Buttocks, etc.
- Your Upper Body – Neck, Arms, Chin, Cheeks, Breasts, etc.
If you want a more finely sculpted body, this option may be right for you. By using VASER® Lipo, our plastic surgeons can apply concentrated ultrasonic energy waves in targeted areas. Those energy waves break up fatty tissue and make it easier to remove.
Our Washington D.C. clients, after VASER® Lipo treatment, are pleased by short recovery and downtimes. They’re also delighted with the results, which make their skin look and feel noticeably smoother.
