Is Liposuction Right for Me?

Many residents in the Washington, D.C. area wonder if liposuction is the right plastic surgery procedure for them. In order to know if you are a good candidate for liposuction, it is a good idea to schedule a plastic surgery consultation with Washington, D.C. plastic surgeon, Dr. Desman. He will listen to your goals for the procedure and discuss the areas of the body in which you would like to have liposuction performed.

Liposuction is a fantastic plastic surgery procedure for anyone who wants to reduce the fatty deposits in areas of body that do not respond to a healthy diet and exercise. It is best to have liposuction performed after you have lost the majority of the weight you wish to lose and are within ten pounds of your goal. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution. It is a great way to help you reach your goal and enhance your natural body shape.

Sometimes, we have fatty deposits that are disproportionate with the rest of the body or that protrude. Liposuction can sculpt these areas and help smooth the skin. Dr. Desman can precisely target the fatty deposits and sculpt the body to a more pleasing shape.

Common areas where fatty deposits are difficult to reduce with diet and exercise are:

  • Chin
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
