It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to stick to a diet and an exercise routine. A lot of people are very excited about starting their diet and exercise routine, but over the course of a few days or a few weeks, they lose that passion and go back to their old patterns.
There is, however, a small group of people who has what it takes to stick to a restrictive diet and to go to the gym regularly. It can be very frustrating for these individuals to deal with stubborn fat deposits around the stomach, legs or arms. These stubborn fat deposits do not go away no matter how hard they exercise. For these individuals, liposuction may be the right option.
Who Are Good Candidates?
To understand if you are a good candidate for liposuction, you first have to understand what the procedure can do and what it cannot do. Liposuction is designed to remove localized patches of fat. It is not designed to help an individual who is obese lose weight. Additionally, it does not remove cellulite, only fat.
A liposuction candidate should be of average weight, or only slightly over their healthy BMI. Their skin should be firm and elastic. As with any other surgical procedure, a liposuction candidate should be in good health. Their goal should be to remove concentrated pockets of fat that are not responding to diet or exercise.
Age is not a huge factor when talking about liposuction. Of course, the younger an individual is, the more elastic their skin is and the better results they will have.
What to Do Before Surgery
The very first step is to sit down and talk to our surgeon. This needs to be an open and frank conversation where you express your goals and what you want the surgery to accomplish. In turn, our surgeon will discuss with you the ins and outs of liposuction. You will have the best results from liposuction if you are not afraid to ask the right questions.
If after the initial consultation the decision is to perform liposuction surgery, our surgeon will give you some dietary guidelines and a list of things to avoid, such as medications, vitamins or supplements that would negatively impact the surgery. This initial consultation is a good time to discuss any past medical conditions and medicine allergies that could impact the surgery.
Understanding the Procedure
Liposuction is a pretty straightforward procedure. At the start of the procedure, you will be given an aesthetic. The type of anesthetic used will depend on the amount of fat being removed and the area where the fat is being removed. Once you have been made comfortable, our surgeon can remove the excess fat.
