Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. Although no type of surgery is a substitute for a good diet and regular exercise, liposuction can remove areas of fat that stubbornly remain even after trying traditional weight-loss methods.
Please talk to your doctor to learn more information and decide whether liposuction is right for you.

You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you:
- have realistic expectations about the procedure and what it can do for you
- are at a normal weight with firm, elastic skin with pockets of excess fat in certain areas
- are to be physically healthy and mentally stable
- are aware that older patients may have diminished skin elasticity making it harder to achieve the same results as younger patients with tighter skin
- know the possible risks associated with the procedure.

At your initial consultation, the doctor will evaluate your health and body to determine where your fat deposits lie and assess the condition of your skin. After explaining the various body-contouring methods, the doctor will recommend the most suitable method for you. If the doctor has a completely different solution for tackling the flaw you are trying to fix, remember to ask questions regarding effectiveness, safety, costs and recovery time. It is very common for a patient to go in for a liposuction consultation and end up scheduling an appointment for a tummy tuck instead. Try to listen to your doctor and, if you need a second or third opinion, please know that you are entitled to do so.

Again, it is extremely important to be realistic about the achievements of liposuction prior to surgery. Move forward with liposuction understanding that liposuction can help you feel better about your body but no amount of surgery will change how you feel inside. You may feel more confident with your body and find that clothing just fits with more ease. Maintain your new shape by sticking to a healthy diet and exercising regularly.
