Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
- Posted on: Jan 14 2015
Do you have stubborn pockets of fat around your midsection, underneath your arms, or in your thighs that simply won’t go away? If you’re a healthy individual who has unsuccessfully dieted and exercised to eliminate unwanted fat – maybe it’s time to consider liposuction.
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a procedure in which fat is removed from targeted areas of the body. Liposuction not only removes fat cells, but your physician will also use the surgical tool to contour and slim the shape of your body.
Liposuction can be used to remove fat in many areas of the body including the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, inner knees, chest, cheeks, chin and calves and ankles. It can also be performed in conjunction with other reshaping procedures, such as tummy tuck or facelift to yield even better results.
It is important for you to be healthy when receiving liposuction treatment. Additionally, you should make every effort to lose weight through exercise and proper nutrition prior to receiving liposuction. This will also help give you beautiful results. Liposuction is not meant to be used as a weight loss solution, it is meant to contour your body – highlighting your own efforts at weight loss.
