Liposuction in Bethesda, MD

Many individuals struggle to lose fat from certain parts of their bodies, even after proper diet and exercise. Liposuction is a common cosmetic procedure used to remove those stubborn fat deposits, allowing you to achieve your ideal body contours.

At Diane L. Colgan, MD Chartered, we are committed to understanding patients’ personal goals for body cosmetics and provide liposuction to help enhance their comfort and confidence.  

Is Liposuction Right for You?

Liposuction is not a replacement for diet and exercise but is a beneficial treatment for those who have had difficulty losing fat deposits. Liposuction can provide a well-proportioned appearance, but is not recommended for severe weight-related issues. For patients who are in good over physical health, but require additional assistance, liposuction is an ideal procedure.

Understanding Liposuction

Liposuction involves the targeted removal of fat using a small incision. This procedure can be used to treat a number of areas that regularly pose a problem for patients’ appearance and self-esteem. The areas we are able to treat include:

  • The chin and neck
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • The back
  • Calves and ankles
  • Thighs and knees

Multiple sites can be treated during a single appointment. This reduces overall recovery time and moves patients toward their goals in less time. This procedure can be assisted by the use of lasers or ultrasound, which breaks down the fat cells before they are removed from the targeted area.

Liposuction and Other Treatments

Fat removal is commonly paired with other procedures to create firmer skin and an overall more youthful appearance. Tummy tucks may also be recommended after liposuction to remove excess skin, creating the proper curvature of your stomach while smoothing away love handles.

Treating sites such as the neck, back, thighs, and buttocks can also be paired with additional procedures to eliminate excess skin and refine natural curves. These procedures can be discussed during patients’ initial consultation or after treatment has been completed.
