Just about everyone has heard about liposuction. However, a lot of people aren’t sure what exactly it is and how it works. Liposuction is a surgical procedure. Before you have your procedure, you’ll have a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon. During this consultation, we are going to discuss a lot of things with you and help to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this procedure.
To be a good liposuction candidate, you need to have realistic expectations regarding the procedure and the results. This procedure is not designed to be a weight loss program. It is not designed to help individuals who are obese get down to a normal weight. It is true that liposuction can provide you with some substantial improvements in your weight. However, it is important to remember that this is a body sculpting procedure. It is designed to be a tool that works in conjunction with your diet and exercise for optimal results.
Liposuction is designed to help you address stubborn deposits of fat that you just cannot get rid of on your own through diet and exercise. Understanding what liposuction can do and what it cannot do for you is crucial to being satisfied with your results.
This procedure also requires you to be in good overall health. Our team of cosmetic professionals wants to help you look your best, but we are only going to do it if we know for sure that the procedure is safe for you. As such, being in good overall health helps to ensure the best outcome after the procedure. Generally speaking, individuals who are good candidates for liposuction also have skin with good elasticity. Most patients who have elastic skin are happy with the results of liposuction.
Liposuction is a powerful tool that can help individuals who are having a hard time getting rid of stubborn fat deposits to get the sculpted body that they want.
