LOSE THE FAT WITH MINIMAL DOWNTIME WITH LITTLE LIPO (IN-OFFICE LIPOSUCTION)
If you’re bothered by a few stubborn areas of fat but don’t want to undergo an extensive procedure, consider the benefits of Little Lipo, also known as in-office liposuction. Little Lipo has become an attractive alternative to traditional liposuction for many patients who want to reduce a few inches and achieve a more sculpted look. The procedure is performed right in our office under local anesthesia and the recovery time is only about 48 to 72 hours. Little Lipo is considered to be a revolutionary procedure because of its incredible results and fast recovery times.
Board certified (ABPS) plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery and Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody), with locations in Richmond, VA and Tysons Corner, VA, are proud to offer the Little Lipo at their practice. They have helped many patients reshape their figure with a simple in-office procedure. This procedure can be equally as effective as ultrasonic or laser liposuction and can reduce fat by up to 80% in just one treatment.
HOW DOES LITTLE LIPO WORK?
The ‘Little’ in Little Lipo is an acronym for the key features of this technique: Local anesthetic, In office, Tumescent, Technique, Liposuction, External Radiofrequency. This approach allows the doctor to remove fat quickly with the power of radiofrequency energy. It’s an advanced technique that is especially effective for treating the abdomen, inner thighs, hips, saddlebags, a double chin, upper arms, lower back, and ‘bra fat’. The entire procedure is customized for the patient to achieve an optimal result.
YOUR LITTLE LIPO PROCEDURE
Little Lipo is perfumed under local anesthesia and anti-anxiety medication. You are awake during the entire procedure but will be completely numb in the treatment areas. Dr. Sundin will make sure you are completely comfortable during surgery and will guide you through each step. The procedure involves making very small 1/4” incisions so that the doctor can insert a very thin tube, or cannula, into the area and suction out unwanted fat cells. Because the incisions are so small, there is minimal swelling, bruising and discomfort.
The recovery time is only 48 to 72 hours for most patients and there are much lower risks and side effects than traditional liposuction. Some patients can benefit from a combination of Little Lipo and J-Plasma body contouring treatments for skin tightening. We can also combine it with other procedures such as CoolSculpting, UltraShape, TruSculpt, and Venus Legacy.
