Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose Dr. Khalifeh for Liposuction?

Is SmartLipo better than regular Liposuction?


Smartlipo is one of the world’s most advanced laser liposuction systems available in the USA and takes liposuction to the next level. The laser energy is emitted through a thin laser fiber within the treatment and extraction device. The benefits of this approach are that the fat can be extracted with far less trauma, as the laser energy melts it away from the surrounding tissue. The recovery time is faster, and Smartlipo has the added benefit of tightening the tissue around the treated area, for a smoother, firmer look overall, avoiding the uneven look that could occur with traditional liposuction.

How much fat can be removed with Liposuction?


A significant quantity of fat can be removed with liposuction. When deciding on the amount of fat to be removed, a full health evaluation is required. The general guidelines for fat removal involve a maximum limit of 11 pounds of fat to be removed, although BMI (body mass index) is being evaluated as being a more accurate way to make this decision, based on a recent study. Removing 11 pounds of fat from a patient weighing 130 and a patient weighing 190 pounds is far different, and the decision should be made by a qualified and experienced medical professional.

Will I have scars after Liposuction?


The incisions through which the fat extraction device is placed are tiny only about 3 to 6 mm in length. These incisions heal on their own and don’t require stitches. The incisions sites heal quickly, and the scarring is barely visible, if at all. You should not have any concerns about scarring.

What is the recovery process after Liposuction?


After your liposuction in Washington DC, the areas treated will be protected with a compression garment. This garment holds your skin tightly against the reshaped area of your body, so it heals smoothly and protects against excessive swelling. You may have bruising and swelling, which diminishes over a few days. Any discomfort is managed with pain medication. The incisions through which the fat is extracted are tiny leave almost invisible scars. You will need to take a day or two off work or other activities to rest and recover.

What can I expect during Gynecomastia?


For moderate to severe cases of gynecomastia, Dr. Khalifeh favors a combination of liposuction combined with direct excision of the glandular tissue via a crescent-shaped incision for direct access to raise the skin uniformly, separating it from the glandular tissue to visualize the pectoralis muscle, and remove the glandular tissue. We offer both procedures under anesthesia and performed while you are awake under local anesthesia (numbing medication). Dr. Khalifeh does the majority of the cases under local anesthesia with mild oral sedation. The procedure takes typically around three to four hours to perform.

Why choose Dr. Khalifeh for Male Breast reduction?


Dr. Khalifeh is one of the leading national providers of body contouring with Smartlipo, or laser-assisted liposuction. For men with an excess of fat, Smartlipo may be performed to produce a structured, masculine look to the upper chest. Other men may require both Smartlipo along with surgical excision of glandular tissue.

How much does male breast reduction cost?


The cost of the procedure ranges from $4,000 to $5,500 depending on the extent of breast development.

How old do you have to be to undergo Gynecomastia?


We recommend waiting until you are at least 18 years old, and the hormonal changes of puberty have ended, though in some cases it may make sense to undergo this procedure at a younger age.
