4 Signs That Liposuction is the Right Cosmetic Surgery For You

Are you on the fence about whether or not you should opt for a liposuction treatment? Here are 4 ways to know if this highly effective cosmetic procedure is right and safe for you.

One of the most popular surgical body contouring procedures, Liposuction is a safe and effective way to remove excess and stubborn pockets of fat from many areas of the body. However, it’s important to remember that this is NOT a weight loss surgery and it’s often recommended for patients who are within 10 pounds of their ideal body weight.

Liposuction is often used for:

  • Removing stubborn pockets of fat from the abdomen, back, buttocks, arms, and thighs.
  • Addressing aesthetic concerns such as love handles, back rolls, and saddlebags
  • Restoring youthfulness to an aging facial appearance
  • Improving the shape of your body

4 Good Reasons to Consider a Liposuction Procedure

While liposuction is NOT a weight loss surgery, it is designed to compliment your weight loss efforts by taking over where exercise and diet fall short. If one or more of the following conditions apply to you, then you may want to consider this body contouring procedure:

  1. Certain areas of your body are out of proportion. Liposuction can reduce excess fat in one or more areas of your body that are out of proportion, bringing them into better balance with your natural figure.
  1. Your skin elasticity is good. For the best possible liposuction results, your skin should be elastic enough to contract to your body’s new contours.
  1. You are within 10 pounds of your desired weight. Liposuction works best when it’s used to reduce localized fat deposits. The best candidates are those who are physically healthy and of average (or slightly above average) weight.
  1. You have stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet or exercise. Do you have unwanted or stubborn fatty areas that are resistant to your healthy lifestyle? Liposuction can help reduce this excess fat for a more aesthetically pleasing figure.



Liposuction vs Exercise: When to Opt For Cosmetic Surgery

One of the most common myths about liposuction is that it can be used as a weight loss surgery and that it can achieve the same results as traditional weight loss methods of regular exercise and a healthy diet.

However, this is not true. Before undergoing this procedure, you must remember that liposuction is a body contouring treatment.

What does this mean? Body contouring treatments are not meant as weight loss alternatives so liposuction is not recommended for anyone who is above 10 pounds of their ideal weight.


Subcutaneous Fat vs Visceral Fat

Before you decide whether or not liposuction is right for you, you must understand the difference between visceral and subcutaneous fat. A great exercise routine and a healthy diet are excellent methods of getting rid of visceral fat (the fat stored around your internal organs).

On the other hand, liposuction is meant for removing subcutaneous fat (the fat that is notoriously resistant to exercise and diet). This includes:

  • Love handles
  • Back and stomach rolls
  • Saddlebags
  • Bulges on upper arms, back, and chin.

Liposuction may be right for you if: you are within 10 pounds of your ideal weight but are struggling with stubborn areas of fat, such as any of the above.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
