Weight loss can improve your overall body composition, but it doesn’t guarantee that you will lose weight from the areas that bother you most. To remove fat from your “trouble zones,” Dr. Charles Virden, a board-certified plastic surgeon provides liposuction for patients in the Reno, Nevada area. Liposuction can help refine areas of the body such as the abdomen, arms, buttocks, and thighs for a slimmer, trimmer body shape that reflects your hard work. Dr. Virden’s training and experience has provided him with a level of precision and skill that is essential for performing liposuction successfully. Removing the appropriate amount of fat is paramount to a smooth and natural outcome.
Liposuction can be used nearly anywhere on the body and is commonly performed on multiple areas during one operation. Love handles, saddlebags, bulges around the waistline, or other fatty deposits are removed to reveal a better shape and more beautiful body. Liposuction is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. Instead, liposuction can remove accumulated fat from areas that are difficult to tone due to genetics, aging, pregnancy, and other factors. When used on several areas of the body, liposuction can provide a well-proportioned appearance. Ideal surgical candidates are those who are already in good physical condition, but have stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction at Charles P. Virden, MD is used to remove unwanted fat from these areas:
- Chin and neckline
- Upper arms
- Abdomen and waistline
- Hips and buttocks
- Thighs and knees
- Calves and ankles
The ideal candidates for neck liposuction are men and women who:
- Have excess fat on their neck, especially under the chin (the submental area)
- Have tried diet and exercise as a means to lose the fat in this area without success
- Have the appearance of a double chin
- Have overall good health
"I came in from out of state to have my procedures done with Dr. Virden. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable and confident in what he does. On the day of my pre-op, as I was flying into Reno, my flights were diverted and delayed and I didn't get in until late. Dr, Virden went above and beyond to meet with me outside of normal office hours to make sure I was ready and confident for surgery the next morning. He is caring and attentive and checked in on me over the weekend after the surgery. I'm extremely happy with my results. My breasts look amazing and my tummy flat! I have had minimal pain after surgery and I attribute that to having an extremely skilled surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Virden!"- Google User / Google / Nov 22, 2016
"CHANGED MY LIFE!I whole heartily recommend Dr. Charles Virden for a procedure. I had two consults a couple of years apart for an abdominoplasty. He sat with me and asked, “what has changed”? This led to a wonderful, caring discussion on what had changed in the two years since my first consult. (loss of almost 100lbs) Dr. Virden became as excited or more excited as I was to the prospects of how this procedure would change my life. He was so caring and enthusiastic to do the procedure. As I lay in recovery, he threw back the curtain and said (with the largest smile I have ever seen), “Hello skinny, I’ll see you tomorrow.” I can only say, I wish I had done it sooner…it has Changed My life! Thank you, Thank you. Patty"- P.B. / Google / Oct 02, 2019
"Prior to having Dr Virden correct 2 botched surgeries I had given up on all hope of looking normal. The plastic surgeon that did my previous surgeries had me on a pump for a year then made me pay full price for a revision that was worse. Dr. Virden never had a doubt he could fix it and that gave me hope. I can honestly say I had given up on anyone fixing it, but he did! I am 3 weeks out from surgery and I feel like I did in my 20's! Seriously this isn't an exaggeration. I would refer my friends and family to Dr. Virden and his staff. His positive attitude and professional but kind bedside manner is comforting. I honestly can't say enough about my experience and how happy I am. If you're thinking about changing something please talk to him first. After all I have been through I can honestly say he comes through and has an eye for detail. Thank you Dr. Virden and staff for giving me a new outlook on myself."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Sep 12, 2019
"I've been going to see Leah S. for a few years now for a variety of things and she's the absolute best! I live in NYC and always make it point to book an appointment whenever I go back to visit family in Tahoe. She's incredibly knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable and all her work is amazing. I would highly recommend Leah and even got a few friends and family members to start seeing her!"- K.O. / Google / Aug 27, 2019
"I saw Aleah Hartung the P.A. In Dr Virdens office for a skin tag removal. I didn’t have to wait months to get in to see her as if I had to see a dermatologist in any other office. I got in, in less than a week. Her technique was amazing, I didn’t feel a thing. I was very impressed. I highly recommend anyone who needs their skin looked at for any suspicious lesions, moles or any skin concerns."- N.T. / Google / Aug 07, 2019
What to Expect
Performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia, neck liposuction requires a small incision just below the chin so the surgeon can remove excess fat through a cannula. It is a relatively short procedure if it is not combined with a neck lift or other facial cosmetic surgical procedures. Once the incision is closed, the patient can expect to see swelling in the area and will be asked to wear a compression garment along with bandages upon discharge.
Liposuction is performed in an accredited surgical center or at a local hospital as an outpatient procedure. The surgery generally takes between 1 – 2 hours to complete, depending on how much fat is being addressed, as well as how many body parts. Liposuction can be a surgery all on its own, however, it is usually paired with other surgeries for the best cosmetic results, such as skin tightening procedures. It takes a couple of weeks for patients to recover and scarring is minimal. If a well-balanced diet is maintained, along with a healthy lifestyle, the results following liposuction surgery can last years.
