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.

Kerri L.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!
