Liposuction Candidacy

What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which fat is suctioned from specific areas of the body. The goal is to reshape and redefine body areas that are not responding to diet and exercise. It is not considered weight loss surgery, although you may lose a few pounds. This procedure should be done by a well-trained plastic surgeon.

The most common areas of liposuction are the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.

What Liposuction Cannot Do
Liposuction cannot remove excessive amounts of weight. Generally, the amount of fat removed during a typical liposuction surgery ranges from one to 10 pounds.

Liposuction will usually not reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Liposuction is of the most benefit to patients who are at or near their ideal weight and who are not experiencing obesity. They should have areas of fat that haven’t improved despite weight loss attempts. It’s also recommended that having a stable weight for at least six months before the procedure.

The best candidates for liposuction are nonsmokers who are generally in good health and who have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcome.

An ideal liposuction candidate will also have good skin elasticity and muscle tone. In fact, if a patient has already lost a significant amount of weight and has a lot of loose, hanging skin, liposuction may only worsen those problems.

The following is a list of conditions that may hinder someone’s candidacy for having liposuction:
Having morbid obesity
Being a current smoker
Being of advanced age

Having medical conditions that make surgery more risky
Using blood-thinning medications that can’t be stopped
While larger amounts of fat can be removed, large-volume liposuction is associated with increased safety risks, skin rippling, and contour irregularities.
