Liposuction succeeds where diet and exercise have failed, and that’s the reason it ranks as one of the top 5 plastic surgery procedures in the US. Liposuction is the popular option among both men and women seeking to get rid of stubborn fat deposits in all parts of the body, from the chin to the knees. Since it is so effective you may be wondering, am I a good candidate for liposuction. Let’s find out who is a good candidate for the procedure, and why.
You can consider doing liposuction if:
- You are close to your ideal weight, but have been frustrated for years by hard-to-tone areas like the thighs. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that is performed on people who desire to reshape their body, and improve body symmetry. It is ideal for people that have struggled for years with fat deposits that they have tried to shift with little success.
- You are already committed to a lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise. This is important, because if you overeat then the remaining fat cells will enlarge, and you will quickly lose the results gained from liposuction.
- You are not taking medications that may put you at risk. Patients should be open and honest about the drugs they are taking, and should also disclose their medical history.
In addition, individuals that are in good health with good skin elasticity and muscle tone usually achieve smooth natural results with liposuction. Patients should not expect to see perfect results, but should instead be realistic about the improvements that can be achieved.
