The first step is to set up a consultation with one of our experienced plastic surgeons. During the consultation, you and the doctor will review your overall goals and discuss both implant size and projection. It is important to consider the overall size you’re looking to achieve.
Our goal is to look at your implant procedure in a holistic way by considering the following:
- Your body size and type
- Desired appearance goals
- Skin elasticity
- Overall lifestyle that could be impacted by the procedure

Liposuction, also referred to as ‘Lipo’, removes excess skin to slim and reshape specific areas of the body. The liposuction procedure in DC can be used to take care of those stubborn areas which refuse to go away even after dieting and exercising.
If you are considering liposuction, you aren’t the only one! According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 258,000 people in 2018 underwent liposuction to help them achieve their goals.
We recommend starting your journey by scheduling a consultation with our physicians. The doctors will work with you closely to determine the target areas for your procedure that is best suited to your needs and goals.
Candidates for this procedure are typically within 30% of their target weight, are in good health, do not smoke, and have firm elastic skin and good muscle tone.
Where on Your Body Can You Get DC Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most versatile procedures and is used to remove excess fat from targeted areas of the body, including:
