Are you considering liposuction to remove some of that annoying flab from your hips, buttocks, or thighs? If so, you should first ask yourself whether you are a good candidate for liposuction. Not everyone is; there are a lot of lifestyle and health issues which are necessary to examine first.
To be a good candidate to receive liposuction, you must be at least 18 years of age and also have no major issues with your heart or cardiovascular system. Diabetes patients cannot get liposuction, and patients with other infections should also steer clear of the operation. It also isn’t a great surgery to get if you’re older and your skin has lost its elasticity. In older people, the skin cannot firm up around a new shape as easily.
What lifestyle choices make a person a good candidate for liposuction? You cannot use surgery to replace proper food and exercise. You can only use it to solve problems which cannot be resolved naturally through your own best efforts. If you use surgery to bypass good habits, your fat will come right back after the surgery. If however you are in good health and you do have healthy habits and still can’t get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat, then you can consider liposuction.
One other issue to consider is also how much fat you can safely remove and from where. For example, you should not combine liposuction with a tummy tuck. The combination of both together can lead to complications and sometimes even death. In Florida it is illegal to do both at once, but not in other states, so make sure that you don’t opt to do anything unsafe.
If you do think that liposuction may be right for you, get in touch with a physician and talk about what shape you are trying to achieve. Together you can figure out the best approach to use during your liposuction consultation. At this time you can ask to see photos and references to demonstrate the surgeon’s past experience with liposuction. Once you are satisfied you’ve made the right choice, you will be ready to go in for liposuction!
