Abdominal Liposuction Washington, DC
Abdominal liposuction, or suction-assisted lipectomy, is a surgical procedure that removes unwanted deposits of fat from the abdomen and often associated flanks, hip and thigh. It improves body shape by removing fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.
The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis. Patients generally return to work and to strenuous activity within two weeks. Dr. Olding will examine you to determine if you are a candidate for liposuction only, or if removal of skin is also required.
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).
Remember: Liposuction is NOT to be used for weight loss.
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.
