If you are like so many other people out there, you are dealing with stubborn fat in certain areas that won’t respond to diet and exercise. You’ve tried countless diets and exercise routines in order to get rid of this fat, but it won’t go away despite all of your efforts. When you find yourself in this situation, it may be time to consider liposuction. But who makes a good candidate for liposuction?
A good candidate for liposuction has realistic expectations when it comes to the procedure and the results. They understand that after the procedure, they will have improved body contours, but they won’t necessarily look like a model in a magazine. That is just not realistic. Good candidates also have realistic expectations regarding the recovery period.
Having good health is key to being a good candidate for liposuction. The healthier you are, the better your results are going to be. This is because liposuction is a surgical procedure. Although the techniques have improved and our surgeon can utilize innovative methods that may include ultrasound or laser equipment, ideal candidates still need to be in good overall health.
You are going to be disappointed if you think of liposuction as a way to lose weight. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or for weight loss. It is designed to address stubborn pockets of fat that you have not been able to get rid of through diet and exercise alone.
Liposuction is a very powerful tool. It has helped many people who are battling with unwanted bulges of fat in certain areas. It has helped them smooth out their contours and get the look that they want. Although liposuction does produce a permanent removal of fat cells, you can still put on weight in the treatment areas. As such, it is important to continue to lead a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain your results.
