Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction (32) Have you ever considered liposuction? If so, you are definitely not alone, but before you take your first step, you might have many questions. One of those questions is whether or not liposuction is even an option for you. Let us help you answer that question today.

What Doctors Look for Before Recommending Liposuction

There is a reason doctors have a consultation and screening session before they jump into a procedure. There are two main concerns. First, not everyone is up for liposuction. There can be physical and mental factors that can impact a person’s ability to go through surgery.

Second, they want to make sure liposuction is actually the right treatment to help you achieve your desired aesthetic goals.

Because of that, your doctor will want to see the following before they suggest this option:

  • Good general health
  • No smoking habit
  • Elastic skin
  • Within 30% of your ideal weight
  • Healthy expectations for the procedure
  • Diet and exercise did not help get rid of stubborn fat deposits

These factors are a starting point to suggest liposuction is a viable path for you. If you believe you meet these qualifications, talk with our team at Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics about liposuction as an option. We can help you determine whether or not this procedure will help you get the desired results.

Things That Discourage Liposuction

Another way to look at this is through the factors that make liposuction more dangerous or less likely to succeed.

First up is actually your skin. Not all skin is suited for the procedure. That does not mean you’re beyond help. It just means you should use techniques that are better suited for your skin type.

Another big factor is pre-existing conditions. Liposuction does put stress on the body, so the doctor wants to be sure you are up for that stress. If not, you can focus on less stressful options and overcoming any current health issues before worrying about liposuction.

Finally, it is essential that liposuction actually fits your goal. The procedure is effective, but it is not a weight loss solution. Part of your consultation will include a discussion on goals and expectations. If liposuction can not give you what you want, then it may not be the right procedure for you.
