What is liposuction in Washington DC?
Liposuction is a procedure that focuses on removing excess fat resulting in a more contoured and slimming figure.
A recent CNN article found that there has been a larger amount of liposuction procedures in comparison to other plastic surgeries.
“More than 1.9 million liposuction procedures were recorded worldwide in 2021, a jump of almost 25% from the preceding year.”
As an overall trend, the cosmetic surgery industry has become even more popular in the past 5 years.
“over 30 million surgical and non-surgical procedures carried out in 2021, a jump of 19.3% from the previous year. The data, published Tuesday as part of ISAPS latest annual survey, suggests that the cosmetic surgery industry has not only recovered from two consecutive years of Covid-related decline — it has grown far beyond pre-pandemic levels.”

What you need to know about liposuction surgery:
Liposuction surgery will take between 1 to 4 hours. The recovery time is about 3 to 5 days. Luckily, you will be able to recover at home. The surgery does not require you to stay overnight.
We recommend you find a surgeon with ample experience. Surgeries can be scary, and it is essential that you trust the doctor who will be doing the surgery.
Lastly, you will need to have a consultation before the surgery. In the consultation, you will discuss the target area(s) for fat removal, what traditional tumescent liposuction is, what power-assisted liposuction is, what skin elasticity is, and your lifestyle and activity levels.
