Liposuction in Leesburg VA

 If you are not satisfied with your body’s contours and would like to sculpt specific areas or enhance your overall silhouette, liposuction offers a way to achieve your goals safely and precisely, targeting specific “trouble spots” such as your hips or thighs.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic body sculpting procedure that removes excess fat deposits from various parts of the body. This surgical technique targets stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise, providing patients with smoother, more contoured figures. By removing localized fat pockets, we can enhance overall symmetry and definition.

In recent years, liposuction has undergone significant advancements in technology and technique. The procedure has evolved from traditional methods to the introduction of ultrasound-assisted and laser-assisted liposuction to deliver safer, more precise results with minimal downtime.

Areas that can be effectively sculpted with liposuction include:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • “Love handles”
  • Chin

Ideal candidates for liposuction are individuals close to their ideal weight who struggle with isolated areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Candidates should also be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure’s results.

The Liposuction Procedure

The liposuction procedure involves making small incisions in the treatment area through which a thin tube (cannula) is inserted to suction out excess fat. Various techniques may be employed, including traditional liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), and laser-assisted liposuction (LAL), each offering unique advantages in fat removal and skin tightening.

Depending on the extent of the procedure and Dr. Arora’s recommendation, liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. The duration of the liposuction procedure varies depending on the number of areas treated and the technique used, typically ranging from one to several hours.

While initial results may be visible shortly after surgery, it can take several weeks to months for swelling to subside and final results to become apparent, with continued improvement over time. Realistic expectations are critical to a satisfying outcome, as liposuction can enhance body contours but is not a substitute for weight loss or a solution for cellulite or loose skin.
