It is not an exaggeration to call losing weight a war. Calling it a battle would really not give it the importance it deserves. This is because a battle is something that happens one time and then is done. Weight loss is a series of battles. You lose some, and you win some. Anyone who has fought the war to lose weight understands how frustrating it can be when even with diet and exercise they still cannot get rid of stubborn fat deposits. It can be discouraging, lead to depression and cause a person to feel extremely frustrated.
For this reason, many people have turned to liposuction as a viable option to get rid of bulges of fat that cannot be accurately addressed by diet and exercise. Liposuction is a proven technique for improving the shape of a person’s body. Most people have liposuction performed on their love handles, on their buttocks and around their face.
How does a person determine whether or not liposuction is good for them? The first thing they need to ask themselves is, what are my expectations? If a person has realistic expectations regarding what liposuction can do for them, then they are going to be a good candidate. Liposuction is good for individuals who are an average weight or slightly overweight.
Liposuction is not designed to address individuals who are morbidly obese. For it to work, a person should have healthy skin that is elastic and malleable. They should have good overall health and should be worried about removing small, concentrated pockets of fat that they cannot remove on their own with diet and exercise.
As with anything else, the more you know about liposuction, the better the result is going to be. The best way to get knowledge about liposuction is to talk to our talented plastic surgeons. Tell them what your end goals are and ask them questions about the risks and the recovery time. Patients who have the best results are often those who go to our cosmetic surgeon with a laundry list of questions that they want answered.
