Am I a good candidate for Liposuction?

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your body, and would like to shape a few areas of concentrated fat, liposuction may be a good option for you. Liposuction is a great way to improve your body contours, but you may be wondering – Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction
Liposuction is a procedure in which unwanted fat deposits are removed from certain parts of the body. These are spots in which fat tends to accumulate even if you’re eating well, and exercising regularly. The tummy, thighs, flanks, and hips, are the areas on which liposuction is most often requested.

There are various techniques used to perform liposuction, but laser assisted liposuction has become a very popular option. Laser lipooffers improved results, and requires less downtime than traditional liposuction.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction
If you have areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, and also have good skin elasticity, you may be a good candidate for liposuction. You should also be healthy, and have realistic expectations about surgery.

Liposuction is designed to change the shape of your body by reducing inches, and is not meant to help with weight loss. In addition, people with loose skin tend to get less favorable results with liposuction, because the procedure only removes fat, it does not tighten the skin.

Individuals considering liposuctionshould also be willing to commit to a lifestyle of regular exercise and healthy eating, in order to maintain the results.
