Tumescent liposuction is a safe and effective permanent fat loss treatment. This surgical procedure is straightforward, and in some cases, it can even be performed under local anesthesia. If you are interested in reshaping your body with targeted fat loss, liposuction may be the right cosmetic treatment to obtain the results you desire. Dr. Maia at Maia Plastic Surgery is a lipo specialist that offers tumescent liposuction at our clinic in the greater Washington, DC, metropolitan area.

The reasons for wanting liposuction for men or women can be just as diverse as the patients seeking this transformative treatment. Most people are interested in reducing protruding pockets of fat that result in common and unsightly problems like muffin tops, love handles, saddlebags, double chins, bra rolls and upper arm bat wings. This includes patients who have worked hard with diet and exercise, slimming and toning but found that these methods aren’t enough to “spot treat” certain stubborn pockets of fat. In other cases, genetics are to blame, as with under chin fat or double chins that are not related to body weight.

Liposuction continues to be a popular procedure performed by plastic surgeons. In a survey by Realself, more than 89% of patients reported high satisfaction after liposuction. Patients are happy with not only an improved appearance after liposuction but also a positive impact on quality of life. Dr. Maia is a fellowship trained, board-certified plastic surgeon in Tysons Corner who can deliver exceptional care and highly satisfying results.

Lipo Under Local Anesthesia

One of the benefits of tumescent liposuction over laser liposuction is that it can often be performed under local anesthesia. This can reduce risks for the patient while still obtaining the desired permanent fat removal to reshape the face or body. For targeted fat reduction, tumescent liposuction can be beneficial for patients who want to avoid general anesthesia during their procedure.

Dr. Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offer various options in fat reduction and body shaping, including tumescent liposuction. To learn more about liposuction and other body or face contouring options, contact us at our medical facility in Tysons Corner, VA.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
