Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure, and because it’s a surgery, not everyone can qualify or be a good candidate for it. Usually, candidates for liposuction are people who:
- are in a good overall health condition and are non-smokers;
- are within 30 lbs. of their goal weight;
- have good, elastic skin;
- have toned muscles;
- maintain a healthy lifestyle;
- have an understanding of the procedure results, and based on that set reasonable expectations.
An in-person consultation with a triple board-certificated cosmetic surgeon Dr. Angelina Postoev is the best way to understand your specific options and whether or not you qualify for liposuction. We also offer free teleconsultations (virtual consultations) with Dr. Postoev which can be an excellent alternative to an in-person visit.
When considering liposuction, you always have to keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss solution; it’s a body shaping and re-contouring procedure. If you are overweight, you might need to address your weight first either with the help of a diet and exercises, or with the help of bariatric weight loss surgery. At Surgicare Arts & Aesthetics, we offer weight loss surgery options and post-weight loss surgery that can fit everyone’s needs.
