Liposuction, Is it right for me?

Published on February 15, 2019

When it comes to fat removal…there are many procedure options available.

One of the most popular treatments for fat removal is liposuction. The procedure works by loosening and sucking out fat in targeted areas to create a leaner you. It works best for those who have specific places they wish to remove fat from. So, why should you pick liposuction over the other treatments available?

What are the benefits of Liposuction?

Liposuction can be used almost anywhere on the body. The most popular locations are the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, but the procedure can also be done on other parts of the body.  Other locations include but are not limited to the neck, chest, hips and calves.

Liposuction is also extremely effective. While exercise and healthy foods are always a necessary part of a good lifestyle, many times they are not adequate to remove your unwanted fat. Liposuction can take care of this with ease.

Who is the ideal candidate for Liposuction?

The best candidates for liposuction are of relatively normal weight but have pockets of excess fat in specific areas. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations. Having firm, elastic skin will result in a better final contour!

Liposuction is not recommended if you’ve had recent surgery on the area(s) to be sculpted, if you have poor blood circulation in that area, or if you have heart or lung disease.

How long does recovery take?

Your recovery time is dependent on the size of your target or treated area(s). Typically, you can resume your normal schedule within a couple days, though strenuous activity and exercise should be postponed until after the healing process is complete which may vary from patient to patient.
