If you have areas of your body that you want to be reshaped, then consider liposuction. The procedure often takes a short time to complete and has little to no side effects. Results are usually seen within a few days of the procedure and completely seen within a few weeks. Before you proceed with the procedure, you can talk to our doctor about whether you would be a good candidate or not as there are a few factors that you want to consider.
One thing to remember about liposuction is that it’s customized to your body. What works for you might not work for another person. The results that are achieved usually won’t be the same for two people because of the amount of fat removed and the overall body structure of each patient. Liposuction is something that you need to do for yourself instead of something that you should do for another person. It’s a procedure that can give you the shapely appearance that you desire after you’ve done the work to lose weight as it’s often done as a way to give you the final boost to your appearance that dieting and exercise won’t achieve.
You would be a good candidate if you are within about 30 percent of your ideal weight. If you plan to lose more weight, then you might want to wait a little while to have the procedure performed as any significant changes in your weight can alter the impacts of the procedure. If your skin elasticity is good, then you will likely see better results from liposuction as your skin will contour more to the fat removal process.
Another factor that would make you a good candidate for liposuction would be if you are in good health and don’t have any issues that would inhibit the recovery process. It would be better if you don’t smoke or drink as these habits can sometimes impact your recovery as well. If you understand that liposuction isn’t a weight loss solution and that’s it’s more of a cosmetic procedure to give you the enhanced look on areas of your body after losing weight, then you would be a good candidate.
