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.

Who Are The Best Candidates For Liposuction On The Calves?

When liposuction is done on the lower legs, it helps to remove excess fat and create more definition around the knee area, slims down the calf, and helps contour the ankle, leaving a nice smooth transition from the knees down to the feet. The shape and size of an individual’s lower legs are influenced by how much muscle is present and the distribution of fat, which in many cases is genetic and usually does not respond to conventional methods of diet and physical exercise. The best calf and ankle liposuction candidates are those who feel their calves are not proportionate to the rest of their body, or there is no definition between where their calves stop and their ankle starts (cankles). Individuals who desire slimmer, more contoured calves and greater definition in the ankle area are the best candidates for liposuction. This safe, effective procedure is minimally invasive and offers dramatic results.
