Is Liposuction Right for You?

This body-contouring procedure can improve the appearance of many body areas, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (or Love Handles)
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Knees

If you have pockets of fat in any of these areas, you are probably a good candidate for liposuction.

Liposuction is especially effective for people who are near their desired weight. Liposuction cannot address excessive, hanging skin and fat like a tummy tuck can. Instead, liposuction is used to remove deposits of fat. For example, you may have an area of isolated fat in your abdomen that will not shrink no matter how much you diet and exercise. Liposuction can remove this fat.

Liposuction Candidacy Factors

Our plastic surgery team will discuss everything you can expect if you choose liposuction. Things to consider include:

  • Risk: Liposuction is a surgical procedure, and you should understand and accept the risks associated with the procedure. Our plastic surgeons have extensive experience with liposuction, and they do everything possible to ensure your safety and wellbeing.
  • Outcome: You should have a realistic idea of what can be achieved with liposuction. This procedure defines the contours of your body, but it does not result in weight loss.
  • Health: You should be in generally good health before undergoing a plastic surgery procedure.

During your consultation, we can discuss the aesthetic outcome you can expect, as well as the possible surgical risks and steps we take to minimize them. We will also ask questions about your medical history and other details to determine whether you are a candidate for liposuction.
