Body sculpting involves surgical procedures that eliminate excess fat, providing patients with a way to achieve a slimmer, more contoured look. Body sculpting in Washington DC offers services such as liposuction, arm and thigh lifts, and other procedures that help patients to achieve the appearance they are looking for. Dr. Troy Pittman is a well-respected, Board-Certified plastic surgeon who was named one of the best plastic surgeons by Modern Luxury DC Magazine. His primary goal is to leave you feeling excited and satisfied with your newly-contoured figure.
How Does Body Sculpting Work in DC?
Body sculpting can help qualified patients who have maximized their ability to eliminate body fat areas through regular diet and exercise. Depending on your goals, Dr. Pittman may recommend surgical or non-surgical options.
For healthy patients who cannot get rid of body fat in certain areas, surgery may be the most effective and efficient option to removing or reducing it. Surgical procedures involve general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep during the process. You will consult with Dr. Pittman and his staff ahead of any Washington DC body sculpting surgery to ensure that all the risks and recovery times are understood.
Liposuction and Tummy Tucks
Liposuction is recommended for those who want to eliminate excess fat that covers a specific area of the body, as this method can remove about ten times more fat than non-invasive procedures. Liposuction effectively removes high volumes of fat in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and back. Although some of the non-surgical options provide a way of removing excess fat with less downtime, they do not provide the same dramatic results as liposuction. A tummy tuck, by contrast, removes fat as well as the excess skin that remains. We can provide further materials that can help you decide which surgery is right for your situation.
What is VASER Liposuction?
VASERlipo is an advanced form of liposuction that uses ultrasound energy to melt unwanted fat. The benefit of this technology is that it can help with tightening loose skin and fat removal with less post-operative swelling and bruising.
Arm and Thigh Lifts
Many people are embarrassed by the buildup of fat and skin on their arms and thighs, which can often be a distraction from the full body figure. You can reduce the thickness in these areas by getting an arm lift or a thigh lift surgery from Dr. Pittman. Once the recovery is complete, you will be more likely to want to show off your body in a bathing suit without having to worry about how your arms and legs look.
