Sometimes, areas of fat on your body simply refuse to go anywhere. That’s when you might want to consider the benefits that liposuction offers. This is a procedure that involves removing fat cells from areas of your body where you might not see the same results that you do in other areas. Common places to have liposuction performed include your arms, thighs, and hips. If you have questions about liposuction, our office is ready to answer them.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most patients who have reached their weight loss goals and only have a few more pounds to lose or who need help getting the toned look that they desire would be good candidates for liposuction. It also helps if you’re in good health as it can make the recovery from the procedure a bit easier even though recovery isn’t as lengthy as other weight loss procedures. If there are concerns about your health, then consult with your doctor about anything that you would need to do in order to be the best candidate.
Will Fat Come Back?
This is another common question that many people have about liposuction. Once the fat cells are removed, then you usually won’t see more weight gain in that area. However, you can gain weight in other areas of your body, which can sometimes alter the impacts of liposuction as you might not have a natural appearance. It’s important to be at a point in your life where your weight might not fluctuate too much as you’ll tend to see the most benefits if you don’t gain or lose a lot of weight. A healthy diet and getting enough exercise can help to maintain the results of liposuction.
Liposuction works well on its own, but in some cases, combining procedures may give you the best results. The most common way that liposuction is combined with other procedures is in a Mommy Makeover. Breast augmentation and tummy tuck are added on to the fat removal treatment, which fully enhances your entire body. Our professionals can recommend which procedures may benefit you the most, and you can make your decision at your consultation with us.
