We offer Liposuction In Chevy Chase, MD that can be a option to remove excess subcutaneous fat which is resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction or Lipo 360 body contouring helps tremendously to change the shape and appearance of your body. Commonly involved liposuctioned areas include the anterior part of the neck (under the chin), upper arms, male chest/breasts (gynecomastia), trunk, abdomen, waist, hips, inner and outer thighs and inner knees. Liposuction is most successful on patients that are near their normal body weight and desire permanent contour changes to stubborn resistant fat.
Liposuction produces permanent improvement to the contour and proportion of the treated areas. A more flattering figure or physique, in or out of clothing, is another goal of liposuction.
General anesthesia is used for safety and comfort during this procedure. Small suction tubes (cannulas) are inserted through very small incisions placed in inconspicuous locations and excess fat is removed. A tumencent fluid is injected into all areas before liposuction to minimize the amount of blood loss during the procedure. In most cases, only 1% of what is removed is blood! This means less bruising and faster recovery.
Ultrasonic and Power-Assisted Liposuction are options for certain candidates. Additional energy added to the cannula by this technology requires less force to be used by the surgeon to remove the fat. This means less trauma to the tissue and a faster recovery for the patient.
These improved techniques now allow larger amounts of fat removal than ever before. We also offer Liposuction 360 or Lipo360 in Easton as well as Chevy Chase, Maryland that can even be useful to moderately overweight individuals even though is not a weight loss method.
Once the surgery is completed, you will go home with a compression garment covering the treated areas. Compression is advised for about a month as it helps reduce swelling after liposuction. Once pain and soreness decrease, it is frequently more comfortable to wear lycra or spandex. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Bruising and swelling usually subside in 2 to 4 weeks. The final result takes shape over 2 to 3 months.
Additional procedures available which may enhance the result of liposuction, are Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), Breast Augmentation, Reduction or Lift.
