You have likely heard about all of the benefits that come from liposuction. Basically, this surgical procedure removes fat from your body and leaves you looking slimmer and feeling happier with your appearance. This procedure is used to target certain pockets of fat on the body, helping you to get rid of those stubborn fat pockets on your arms, thighs, buttocks, abdomen or other places. However, you may be wondering if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
The very first thing that makes an individual a good candidate for liposuction is having fat that is located in stubborn areas on the body that an individual cannot get rid of by diet and exercise. Liposuction is not designed to help an individual lose weight all over their body. They must first do this by sticking to a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise. This means that an individual is pretty close to their ideal weight. Then they need to have stubborn pockets of fat that can be treated using the liposuction procedure. It is most common for individuals to have fat removed from their thighs, buttocks, love handles, abdomen and arms.
It is important for good liposuction candidates to understand that it is a surgical procedure. This means that small incisions will be made. These are necessary in order to insert the tools that are used to remove the fat. So you will have some downtime after the procedure. When you come in for your consultation, we will discuss all of the details of liposuction with you in order to help you fully understand the procedure.
Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, you must have good health. The healthier you are before the procedure, the better results you are going to have afterward.
In addition to having good physical health, good liposuction candidates are also individuals who are emotionally stable. Dealing with excess weight on the body can lead to a variety of emotional issues. So, it is important for a good candidate to walk into the procedure understanding what it will do for them and how it will affect them.
