Who Is a Good Candidate For Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle and it can be performed on areas such as the outer and inner thigh, hips, buttocks, arms, neck and elsewhere. The procedure removes pockets of fat that are difficult to remove by targeted exercise or diet. Having said that, liposuction is not a substitute for healthy lifestyle that involves healthy diet and some form of physical activity on daily basis.

Dr Michael Rich warns that liposuction should not be used as a substitute for weight loss.

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity and it will not remove cellulite or stretch marks. The treatment permanently removes fat tissue and can alter body shape. However, it is important to remember that as effective as liposuction can be, if you put on weight after the procedure, the results might not last.

Liposuction is best suited for candidates who are not overweight but have an area that particularly bothers them and want to look a little different. This area could be anything that has a fat deposit: cheeks, arms, thighs, stomach, buttocks, arms and so on. Liposuction also helps solve the issues that come with ageing when the face and the neck start to amalgamate. The procedure can delineate them in only 20 minutes, possibly making it “the most anti-ageing procedure on profile”, according to Dr Michael Rich.

The procedure is not a substitute for controlled weight loss but it can be a good motivator when it comes people choosing a healthy lifestyle. Seeing fat deposits gone, makes the patients self-confident and boosts their energy. It also might remove years-long complexes, which were holding someone back.

When to consider Liposuction

A balanced diet and healthy lifestyle should be the stepping stones of getting your body into a shape that you desire. However, even with all this effort sometimes there are stubborn areas that simply do not transform, no matter how much attention you devote to it.

Liposuction is a chance to get you that additional step further in achieving the looks you desire.

You are a good candidate for liposuction if you:

  • Have localised areas of fat pockets that are disproportionate to the rest of your body.
  • Would like more definition or a sleeker contour in certain areas of your body.
  • Suffer from lymphoedema – it is where fluid accumulates in body tissue
  • Suffer gynaecomastia – it is an endocrine disorder in which there is a benign enlargement of breast tissue in men, especially around nipples
  • Would like to reduce the size of your breasts
