Bethesda Cosmetic Surgery - Liposuction in Bethesda

Liposuction (or lipoplasty) is a body-sculpting procedure to remove fat that is unresponsive to diet and exercise.  Liposuction can be used on many different areas of the body and is often used on multiple different areas during one procedure.  Liposuction results in a slimmer and better proportioned figure.  It is used effectively to reduce love handles, saddlebags, a double-chin, a bulge around the waistline, or other unsightly fatty deposits.

Reasons for Considering Liposuction:

Eliminate fat from any of the following areas:

  • Chin and Neckline
  • Back 
  • Upper Arms
  • Stomach and Waistline
  • Hips and Buttocks
  • Thighs and Knees
  • Calves and Ankles
  • Create a more proportioned figure

Liposuction is not a replacement for proper exercise and diet.  Instead, liposuction is a reduction procedure for stubborn areas where fat accumulates. Liposuction can provide a well proportioned body appearance.  Ideal surgical candidates are those already in good physical condition but having stubborn areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.
