Liposuction is the plastic surgery option that can give you a second chance to remove stubborn fat in different areas of your body that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes your excess fat in a targeted area. Typically the best areas for the procedure are outer thighs, hips, and submental. Different procedures are available for liposuction, but they operate on the same basic principle: A small incision is made. A small sharp-edged tube is used to suction out the fat. If you are having the procedure done on a small area, then local anesthetic is needed. If you are choosing to have the procedure on different areas, you may need general anesthetics.
Who is a Great Candidate?
Liposuction is not a procedure for general weight loss. A patient should be a stable weight but with stubborn fat that won’t go away through other efforts. Patients need to be in good health and quit smoking before the surgery and during recovery. With any plastic surgery, patients need to have realistic expectations about their surgical results.
What You Need to Discuss With Your Doctor
Finding a board certified plastic surgeon is the first step to having a good experience with your liposuction.
