A healthy diet and regular exercise are supposed to be all we need, in order to enjoy our ideal physique. If you’re frustrated with stubborn pockets of fat, liposuction in the Washington DC area at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery is here to help.
Your Liposuction Experience
Liposuction is a relatively low-impact procedure that can be performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you’ll be able to return home once the treatment is completed. It’ll be performed under general anesthesia, so you’ll be asleep and won’t feel anything, and you’ll need a friend to drive you home after the procedure as the effects of your anesthesia wear off.
During the procedure, small incisions will be made in the treatment area, through which a cannula will be inserted. This is a hollow tube that will be used to vacuum out the unwanted fat cells, effectively trimming down the area and reducing the presence of unwanted fat. The incisions will be carefully closed once your procedure is over.
