If you’re trying to get rid of excess skin and fat with little success after dieting and exercising, then you might want to consider liposuction. However, there are a few qualities that you should keep in mind that would make you a good candidate while other qualities might not make you the best candidate for this procedure. One of the things that you want to consider about your health before having liposuction is whether you plan to lose more weight or you’ve reached your weight loss goal and are only trying to put a few finishing touches on how you look.
You would be a good candidate for liposuction if there are areas of your body that just won’t seem to go away no matter how hard you try to eliminate the fat that is there. A benefit of liposuction is that it permanently removes fat cells, which means that the fat that is there won’t come back. You could gain more weight in the future, but it likely won’t be in the area treated. Liposuction is an option to consider if you have areas on your thighs, abdomen, or legs that you need to target as these are common areas treated with this procedure.
If you’re at a stable weight and don’t see any signs of fluctuating in the future, then it might be time to consider liposuction. When you’ve reached your weight loss goal, our doctor has a better opportunity to clearly see the areas that might need to be treated more than others. Our doctor can look at some of the areas where loose skin is hanging after losing weight and where you have more fat deposits than in other areas of your body. These areas sometimes appear as small bulges that can make you self-conscious at times.
As a good candidate, you’ll understand that liposuction isn’t a treatment for losing weight. It’s a procedure that can help to give you the tone and definition that you desire after you’ve already lost weight. If you gain too much weight after the procedure or if you continue to lose weight, then the liposuction process could be altered, resulting in an abnormal appearance. If you’re in good health, then you would likely be a good candidate. However, if you smoke, drink, or aren’t as healthy as you could be, then you might want to wait a bit before having the procedure.
