Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical treatment that removes stubborn fatty deposits from hard-to-target areas. These areas commonly include:

  • Thighs
  • Waist & Love Handles
  • Hips & Buttocks
  • Abdomen & many more areas

Liposuction is a great cosmetic weight loss option because it allows for targeted fat loss and body contouring, which is not typically possible with normal diet and exercise!

Dr. Myla is a board certified plastic surgeon who always provides her clients with an intuitive consultation before any surgical procedure. This allows her to ensure someone is a good candidate for surgery and to better understand each patient’s desired results.

Is Liposuction Right for Me?

Liposuction is excellent for removing small amounts of fat from specific areas of the body. However, liposuction is not intended for someone who is looking for extensive weight loss.

Ideal candidates for liposuction are those who try to maintain a relatively healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a well-balanced diet. These people are generally happy with their weight, but may be looking to improve their appearance by eliminating unsightly small bulges and pockets of fat.

Why is a healthy mindset important? Liposuction is surgery, and it requires physical recovery. Dr. Myla wants to ensure her clients are satisfied with their results immediately after their procedure and over time as well.

If you experience large weight fluctuations of 10 pounds or more on a regular basis, then any positive results you see from liposuction will be diminished rather quickly.

While liposuction does permanently remove existing fat cells, significant weight gain of more than 10{932a8fa5ac1cfa9d7cdc20c846563fb8f434ff42d1e0d792fd4d62bc2b5e525e} of your current body weight will lead to new fat cell generation – even in areas treated by lipo.
