Find out why physicians and dentists come in for their own liposuction in our Washington DC surgical clinic. Because we specialize in under-local anesthesia liposuction, we have the highest safety margins in liposuction surgery and you can return to work in a day ( no worries about general anesthesia and not waking up). ALL of our liposuction patients in the before and after pictures, were done under-local anesthesia with minimal sedation, which maximizes curves and shapes and minimizes post liposuction pain, swelling and complications due to general anesthesia.

What will remain steadfast in the realm of Liposuction cosmetic surgery in Washington dc is that it is the skill and artistry of the Cosmetic surgeon that determines a successful outcome. Plastic surgeons are trained to do breast cancer reconstruction surgery NOT liposuction. The cosmetic surgeon makes critical decisions that will never be overshadowed by technology of any kind. The curves and shapes, the amount of fat to extract, the evenness with which it is removed and the blending of one area into another are all artistic judgment calls on the part of the cosmetic surgeon. It’s a surgical art and training. Dr. Araya, a cosmetic surgeon, has done more cosmetic surgeries and procedures in Washington dc area. Likewise, sound medical decisions, based on years of study and practice, are made by the cosmetic surgeon, and other cosmetic surgical team members. These are central to your safety while undergoing a procedure such as Liposuction or any other surgical procedures.
Liposuction surgical Operation: Liposuction improves body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits with a tube and vacuum device. Liposuction can be performed using the tumescent technique, in which targeted fat cells are infused with saline solution (which contains a local anesthetic) before liposuction to reduce post-operative bruising and swelling. Common locations for liposuction include chin, cheeks, neck, upper arms, above breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles. For larger volumes of fat or for fibrous body areas, ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) may be used. UAL is a new technique in which an ultrasound probe is inserted beneath the skin to "liquefy" the fat before it is suctioned.
Liposuction surgical Time (estimate): Surgery is performed in our Washington dc location and surgical duration or time varies from 1-2 hours or more depending on the type of liposuction performed. UAL is 20-40 percent longer than traditional liposuction.

Liposuction Anesthesia/Pain Control: Liposuction procedure is normally performed under local anesthesia but depending on the type of liposuction it can also be performed under general or epidural. We prefer local sedation to maximize best curves and shapes in our Washington dc surgical clinic.

Liposuction surgical Location: It is usually an outpatient procedure in our Washington dc surgical clinic but extensive operations may require short inpatient stay which is very rare.

Liposuction surgical Side effects (Possible): Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness, or burning sensation may occur. If the tumescent technique is used there may be temporary fluid drainage from the incision sites. The UAL procedure may have larger incisions for cannula. Patients that use heating pads or cold pads after surgery can burn their skin.

Liposuction Complications (Possible): Some possible liposuction complications that can occur are infection, asymmetry, rippling or bagginess of skin, pigmentation changes, skin injuries, fluid retention, and excessive fluid loss leading to shock. The UAL procedure may result in thermal burns caused by the heat generated by the ultrasound device. Seromas are common. Extremely tight girdles can cause skin necrosis.

Liposuction Downtime: Patients can go back to work in 1 to 2 days. A patient may participate in more strenuous activities in 1 to 2 weeks. The use of the tumescent technique or UAL may decrease post-operative bruising and swelling.

Duration of liposuction Results: Results are permanent with sensible diet and exercise.
