What is Liposuction?
Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction is a body contouring surgery that is designed to sculpt various areas of the body, eliminating unwanted pockets of exercise and diet-resistant fat from the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breasts), back, thighs, arms and neck. It may be combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, to create the desired shape, and it is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic procedures available today.
When to Consider Liposuction
Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not designed to be used for weight loss. Although it may be performed after weight loss in order to sculpt certain stubborn areas, it’s typically reserved for individuals who are overall healthy and have reached or are very close to their goal weight.
You may be a good candidate for liposuction if:
- You have localized areas of fat deposits that are disproportionate to the rest of your body.
- You would like more definition or slimmer contours in certain areas of your body.
- Your skin elasticity is good, as liposuction is designed to remove fat and not tighten the skin.
It’s important to note that results vary from patient to patient. If you’d like more information, you may want to research The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and/or The American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
