Liposuction

OVERVIEW


Northern Virginia LiposuctionOur northern Virginia and Washington DC Metro Area plastic surgeons can restore and re-contour your body through liposuction by safely removing excess fat deposits in problem areas.

If you are bothered by excess fat deposits – located anywhere on your body – that don’t respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A LIPOSUCTION?


  • Adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone;
  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing;
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING LIPOSUCTION SURGERY?


A small incision is made in a natural crease of the skin or some other inconspicuous place. A hollow, pen-like device, called a canula, is inserted into the skin. The canula is used to take out the fat.

If using VASER® Lipo, the canula helps to dissolve the fat before the excess is taken out. Patients are sent home wearing a compression garment to help with the swelling.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM LIPOSUCTION SURGERY?


Austin-Weston liposuction patients return the following day and incisions are checked. A new garment is put on and patients are taught how to wear it.

A week later, patients return and stitches are removed. You will then be given instructions on how long to wear your garment.

Liposuction patients will experience some swelling and bruising, but overall the recovery is not difficult.

HOW MUCH DOES LIPOSUCTION COST?


The cost of liposuction surgery in Reston, VA, at Austin-Weston is around $5,600 – $26,050. The price includes the cost of surgeon fees, anesthesia fees, OR fees, postop garments and all post-op appointments.
