When you Should Choose Liposuction

Posted on December 6, 2017 by: Dr. Rocheford

Liposuction is a common plastic surgery procedure that offers a solution to those areas of fat that won’t go away no matter how hard you try. If you struggle with stubborn fat, you might be considering a plastic surgery procedure or treatment to help. Here’s how you can tell if liposuction is the right choice!

You are a Good Candidate

Before you seriously consider liposuction for your stubborn fat removal, make sure you have what it takes to be a good candidate. Candidates for liposuction are those who have tried diet and exercise, but still can’t find relief from their stubborn fat. Stubborn fat can be present after pregnancy, weight fluctuation, or a result of age. If you are a healthy individual within your ideal weight range, you could be a good candidate for liposuction.

You Want Dramatic Results

With advances in technology, many nonsurgical treatments have emerged like CoolSculpting and laser recontouring. While these treatments can give you improvements, they cannot deliver the same effectiveness that liposuction can. Most of these nonsurgical treatments require several sessions to produce noticeable results and maintain your look, but liposuction gives dramatic and permanent results after just one treatment. If your stubborn fat is severe or covers a large portion of your body, you might choose liposuction over a nonsurgical procedure for the best results.

You’re Already Having Another Procedure

Liposuction is often used to enhance the results of other procedures. If you’re already undergoing another surgery such as a breast lift, breast reduction, or tummy tuck, you might choose to add in liposuction. Having multiple procedures done at once instead of separate can save you money and recovery time. Liposuction can provide extra fat removal for more body contouring.

Your Surgeon Recommends it

You should always discuss your concerns, goals, and expectations for results with your trusted board-certified plastic surgeon before undergoing any plastic surgery procedure. Your surgeon can determine if liposuction is the best option for you or if another procedure would give you more satisfying results.
