Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Liposuction?
Many of our patients at Saratoga Springs Plastic Surgery, PC are diligent with their diet and exercise regimes yet still struggle with areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to these efforts. The most commonly affected areas of the body include:
- Hips and Lower Back
- Bra Fat (mid-back)
- Upper Arms
- Inner Knees
- Neck and Jawline
If you are ready to address these troublesome areas and attain a more toned and sculpted figure, liposuction is an effective solution that can help you achieve your goals. Since this procedure typically delivers dramatic results with minimal recovery time, liposuction is one of the most popular body procedures among our patients. In addition, our LipoPerfection® external ultrasound-assisted technique can reduce your overall downtime, increase your comfort during recovery, and ultimately provide you with smoother contours compared to traditional liposuction techniques.
Ideal candidates for liposuction will be at or near their ideal weight, with less than 10 or 20 pounds of excess subcutaneous fat isolated in the above “problem areas” that has proven resistant to traditional weight loss methods such as diet and exercise. The best candidates also have good skin elasticity and skin tone in the areas to be treated. Though liposculpture may be used to successfully contour the figure of a heavier patient, it is important to remember that liposuction is not intended to treat obesity or achieve major weight loss. During the consultation process, a physical exam, comprehensive review of your medical history, and conversation about your surgical expectations will help us determine if you are an ideal candidate for liposuction.
