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.
