Weight Loss

The Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery Serves Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Springfield and Fairfax County, Virginia, and Washington DC

At the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery, we understand that everyone is unique and believe that each patient’s body contouring procedure or weight-loss program should be customized to his or her unique needs.

Board-certified Virginia plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Desman does not recommend unnecessary surgery if he believes you can benefit from nonsurgical weight-loss methods that can help you burn fat, tone muscles and provide contouring benefits, such as the Ideal Protein system.

However, some patients have stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to positive changes in diet and exercise. In these situations, liposuction may be the best option. It is important to remember that liposuction is intended to remove reserves of fat; while it can reduce your waistline, it is not designed as a weight-loss procedure.

Dr. Desman and the team at the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery will work with you to determine the best option for your individual needs and aesthetic goals as well as help you design a healthy lifestyle program to maintain your results.

If you live in the Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax or Springfield, Virginia, or Washington DC areas and would like to learn more about your body contouring or weight-loss options, please contact the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Eric Desman.
