5 FAQs About Liposuction D.C. By Hadi Rassael on January 06, 2014

2013 has been a busy year for anyone following liposuction news. The procedure has been proven very effective when combined with a tummy tuck. “Mommy makeovers,” which combine a number of cosmetic surgeries, have been popular with celebrities and the general public alike. More recently, it was reported that some members of the military used liposuction to protect their careers.


The procedure has become a mainstay in popular culture; even so, there are many misconceptions about the procedure that persist. To help dispel some of the myths and help people who are interested in liposuction gather more information about the procedure, we have answered five frequently asked questions below.


If you have any further questions about cosmetic surgery, we would be happy to discuss them with you during a consultation. At Millennium Medical, we are dedicated to offering the best Liposuction D.C. service. To schedule a consultation, Call Us At 301-652-9005 Today!


1. What Is Liposuction?


Medical News Today defines liposuction as a procedure that is designed to permanently remove fat cells from the body. During the procedure, your surgeon will use an instrument called a cannula to break up fat deposits, which are then sucked out using a high-pressure vacuum.


2. Can The Removed Fat Grow Back?


No. After puberty, the number of fat cells in a person’s body does not change. Liposuction removes fat cells from problem areas, and those fat cells can never grow back. It is important to note, though, that patients who gain large amounts of weight after the procedure will not experience the best effects of liposuction.


3. What Areas Of The Body Can Liposuction Be Used On?


Liposuction can be used on many parts of the body, and your surgeon can help you determine which areas will be most beneficial for you. The most commonly treated areas include the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, neck, claves and arms.


4. Which is More Effective: Traditional Liposuction or Zerona?


Over the past five years, there have been a variety of new and innovative liposuction treatments released. Each type of treatment offers a different set of benefits, so each procedure’s effectiveness depends on your specific needs. Traditional liposuction is still the best procedure for patients who have pockets of fat on large areas, including the abdomen and the buttocks.


People who want to treat smaller areas that require less fat loss may want to consider Zerona. Zerona is a non-invasive procedure that uses a laser to help melt away a person’s fat in smaller amounts. 



5. How Long Should I Take Off From Work For The Procedure?


If you have a job that does not require large amounts of physical exertion, then you should plan to take about a week away from work. Your cosmetic surgeon can give you a more definitive time period based on the extent of the procedure and the areas that are treated.


At Millennium Medical, we believe that every patient should be given the opportunity to discuss their goals in detail with their surgeon before the procedure. If you have any questions or concerns about liposuction, we urge you to set up an appointment to speak with us about the procedure. To set up your consultation, Call Us At 301-652-9005 Today!
