Abdominal Liposuction Washington, DC

Abdominal LiposuctionAbdominal liposuction, or suction-assisted lipectomy, is a surgical procedure that removes unwanted deposits of fat from the abdomen. It improves body shape by removing fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis and can use an ultrasonic technique, which liquefies the fat before it is suctioned away. Patients generally return to work and to strenuous activity within two weeks.

Patients may experience temporary bruising, swelling, numbness or burning, or drainage from incision sites. Swelling and bruising generally subside within one to three months and may be reduced through use of tumescent or ultrasonic techniques. Potential complications include bleeding, infection, asymmetry, skin rippling or discoloration, fluid retention, or excessive fluid loss, which may lead to shock (only with large-volume liposuction).

His hands and surgical skills are legendary

I have known Dr. Olding for over 20 years. He has worked on many close to me and myself. He is the most honest, ethical plastic surgeon I know. He doesn’t sugar-coat or tell Ugly Betty she will look like a movie star after he is done and sucks 100 lbs out of her. I refer to him frequently and would highly suggest anyone considering cosmetic surgery should at least get an opinion from him because HE WILL BE HONEST. His hands and surgical skills are legendary.

Important Announcement

I am committed to the health and safety of my patients. Public health officials have mandated the cancellation of elective surgeries, and for the protection of our patients and their families, we will not be seeing elective patients until the ban on doing so is lifted. Therefore, for the next few weeks, we will not be scheduling new appointments or procedures; however, our staff will continue to be available to take phone calls and answer your questions. Once we have some glitches out of the system, you will be able to have a virtual consult with me – stay tuned!
