LiposuctionLook Great and Feel Great with Advanced Liposuction

If you have tried exercise and dieting, but you can’t seem to get rid of those stubborn bulges of fat, you are not alone.  Unfortunately, many areas of the body store excess fat easily but then refuse to give it up.  Despite revolutionary advances in body contouring technologies, surgical liposuction remains the most effective, most powerful way to reduce stubborn fatty deposits. 

Liposuction continues to be one of the most common and most popular cosmetic surgery procedures because it is both simple, relatively low risk, and provides consistently excellent results.*  As with any surgical procedure, choosing the best surgeon is the most important step to ensure a successful outcome.  At the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, with offices conveniently located in Richmond and Vienna, VA, Board Certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin have the experience to deliver optimal liposuction results.*

  • Calves
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • *Results vary and are not guaranteed.


    What Can You Expect From A Liposuction Procedure?

    During liposuction surgery, a cannula (a hollow tube) is inserted through a small incision within the natural folds of your skin to reduce scarring.  The excess fat is loosed and targeted tissues are broken up, then a surgical vacuum is used to suction out the excess fat.  

    • Liposuction is an outpatient procedure usually conducted under general or local anesthesia with sedation to minimize discomfort
    • Most of our patients have less pain following the surgery because we administer a longer acting local anesthesia as part of the procedure
    • Most patients can return to work in about a week or sometimes less after the surgery
    • Bruising for a week or longer plus swelling for a few months after surgery is possible
    • A special compression garment may be required to ensure the very best results
    • Individual results may vary.

    When Will I Notice the Difference After Liposuction Procedures?

    Even though most patients will have swelling, you will see a noticeable difference in the shape of your body very soon after the surgery.  After the swelling has subsided in 4-6 weeks, the improvements to your shape will be even more apparent.  Approximately three months after the procedure, your final contours will be visible.  Maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise will help you keep your new look and your great new shape.*
