Cosmetic surgery procedures are great for achieving a more youthful look or for reducing fat and sagging wrinkled skin. Liposuction is one such procedure which is a good option for people who are looking to reduce fat. However it is important to know what Liposuction can and cannot achieve for patients.
Liposuction is not about losing weight and so liposuction is not the right procedure for you if you are looking to "get-thin-quick". Liposuction helps only if you are trying to reduce fat in areas that just don't seem to get thinner in spite of regular exercise and diet.
Liposuction is not a replacement for weight loss nor is it a way to sculpt a perfect body for yourself. Meaning, by undergoing liposuction, there's no way for you to dramatically change your body from being overweight to becoming petite. Liposuction is simply used to cut out the excess fat in those areas that are difficult to trim so to speak and help them fit with the rest of the body better.
Patients must also be in good health to undergo liposuction. Most of all it's important that liposuction patients are close to their ideal body weight before undergoing the procedure to reduce or remove those difficult fat deposits. Liposuction is recommended for reducing fat from areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, upper arms, and upper chin because these areas are difficult to reduce completely through exercise or diet.
Liposuction doesn't have to be a standalone procedure. It can be combined with tummy tucks and breast augmentation. So if you are thinking about liposuction, contact our office for a consultation.
