Liposuction has been helping individuals sculpt their bodies for more than a decade. The vast majority of people are happy with the results that they’ve gotten from liposuction. However, it is important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure. If you are interested in liposuction, you are probably wondering if you are a candidate. Of course, the only way to truly determine this is to schedule a consultation at our office. However, there are a few things that good candidates all have in common.
A good candidate for liposuction has realistic expectations. They understand what the procedure can and cannot accomplish. If you go into liposuction believing that it is a procedure that is going to help you lose 50 or 60 pounds, you are going to be disappointed. This is a body sculpting procedure. That means it is designed to work for individuals who are already at or close to their healthy BMI. It is designed to remove stubborn fat deposits that these individuals cannot remove on their own with diet and exercise.
Additionally, a good liposuction candidate is in good overall health. The healthier you are and the more elastic your skin is, the easier it will be for you to recover from the procedure. Other considerations may be your age and your starting weight, among other things.
A good candidate also wants the procedure done for themselves. They are not considering the procedure because someone else wants them to have it done. People who are pressured into getting the procedure done are not as likely to be as happy with the results.
At the Georgia Center for Female Health, we are proud to offer liposuction via the tumescent technique. This minimally-invasive procedure involves less discomfort and recovery time than traditional liposuction. Since it uses ultrasound energy to liquefy the fat prior to removal, it involves significantly less trauma to the body, ultimately resulting in more benefits for the patient both during and after the procedure.
The more information you have about the tumescent liposuction procedure, the happier you’re going to be with your end results. This is a powerful tool that has helped many individuals sculpt their body into something that they love. It can work for you as long as you are a good candidate for the procedure.
