We are the first physician-owned practice in Washington DC Metro area to offer SlimLipo laser liposuction. Dr Varano has been performing treatments since 2003 and has done over 2000 liposuction cases with the newest technology always available.

What is the SlimLipo Procedure? SlimLipo combines liposuction with laser treatment to tighten the skin and remove fatty tissue. Performed in our surgical office setting, NO general anesthesia is required as the patient remains awake and with minimal discomfort during the treatment session. Dr. Varano uses local or tumescent anesthesia, by infusing a lidocaine mixture, then inserts the laser into a few small incisions smaller than the width of a pencil. The laser then not only liquefies and removes surrounding fatty tissue, but also helps tighten the surrounding skin, which differs from traditional liposuction. Treatments times range between 2-3 hours. Since sutures are not required once the treatment is completed there are no disfiguring scars where the procedure was performed.*If you are looking for a non invasive alternative for fat bulges or your budget is under $2000 we may suggest checking out our Coolsculpting webpage.  For some individuals who have excess skin laxity (looseness), we may suggest combining the treatment with J-Plasma Body Contouring as an alternative option to a tummy tuck, arm lift, etc*

How effective are the Results? Results usually can be dramatic and reduce dress sizes and the way you fit in your clothes.*

What areas can be treated? Typical areas are abdomen, love handles, hips, inner and outer thighs, upper or lower back, neck/chin, and upper arms. The abdomen typically has 3 main areas: Upper, lower and flanks (love handles) as pictured below:



* individual results may vary


Who are the best candidates? Even though up to 10 pounds can be removed, best candidates are those people who are close to their ideal body weight, and have stubborn areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. BMI ( Body Mass Index below 33). If your BMI is too high we may suggest our medical supervised diet. If your area of concerned is deemed mostly loose skin we may suggest J -Plasma body contouring.*

What is the downtime/recovery period? Most patients can return to work in 2 days. Because the laser heats the skin and tumescent anesthesia is utilized, there is less bruising than traditional liposuction. Swelling usually subsides within a week. No sutures are required as the skin heals by a natural process. You may feel sore, but most individuals use over the counter pain analgesics for recovery (Tylenol). You will be fitted with a compression garment to wear for the first 2 weeks, and will be asked to avoid strenuous activity for 1-2 weeks.*

When will I see results? Depending which area(s) are treated, you will notice an improvement of the skin and contour of your body shape after the swelling subsides. In general, just a few weeks after the treatment there will be a noticeable change. Improvements will continue to get better with each passing week over the first 6 months.*

Thank You Dr Varano!!!, You have never over promised and have always produced results that are beyond my expectations. I lost 4 dress sizes since the Laser Liposuction 5 weeks ago and have absolutely no residual effect. I had a smooth transition back to work 2 days later. There was no discomfort and I’ve had a radical difference in my ability to exercise. I’ve had a good experience going back to the gym and don’t feel like everyone is looking at me. This provided the improvement on body areas where diet and exercise were just not enough. C.S.*
