First, let’s define what Liposuction is. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes site specific excess body fat. The most popular areas to remove excess body fat are in the abdomen, buttocks, back, arms, breasts, hips and the back of the thighs.
I want to be clear here. Liposuction is a treatment for cellulite, nor a weight loss procedure. If you have a severe illness or chronic illness or have a medical illness that could impair healing, Liposuction is not for you. Lastly, liposuction is not cheap. If you are not in a financial position to cover the costs comfortably, Liposuction is not for you.
You may be a good candidate for liposuction is you are an adult and:
- You are within 30% of your ideal body weight;
- You have firm, elastic skin and decent muscle tone;
- You’re a non-smoker;
- You have a positive outlook, specific body contouring goals and realistic expectations.
