Will Liposuction Help Me Lose Weight?

Maryland Plastic Surgeon serving Washington DC, & Virginia including Alexandria and Fairfax.


If you're an Alexandria-area resident considering liposuction, it's important to remember that it is not a weight loss procedure. The best candidates for liposuction are at or near their ideal bodyweight.

There are certain misconceptions regarding liposuction, based largely on comedic portrayals of the procedure in which morbidly obese patients have hundreds of pounds of fat removed in one office visit.

These are not accurate, suffice to say.

The reality of liposuction is much less dramatic, though still quite transformative. The procedure is perfect for removing stubborn deposits of fat that don't respond to diet or exercise. For whatever reason, some fat simply does not burn away easily, even though you do everything right with your lifestyle.

Liposuction can help your body match that lifestyle. We safely remove fat cells from the treatment area, thus effecting a dramatic re-shaping of your body. This why liposuction is known as a "body contouring" procedure.

We'll be happy to answer all of your liposuction questions before moving forward with any procedure.
