When Can I Have Liposuction?

If stubborn fat is preventing you from having those defined, beautiful contours you desire, then it may be time to consider liposuction. Many people struggle fruitlessly to achieve their ideal body through diet and exercise. However, the myth that you can spot reduce fat is keeping people from having the body shape they want. While not everybody is a liposuction candidate, many people struggling to shed those last few pounds can benefit from the procedure.

Liposuction for Contouring, Not Weight Loss

People considering liposuction have already put the work into losing weight and are within 3.5 stones of their ideal weight. If you want to undergo liposuction to help kickstart your weight loss, you probably won’t achieve the best results. While liposuction does slightly reduce your overall weight, its primary purpose is to eliminate stubborn areas to help improve your body’s definition and shape.

Liposuction Candidate Characteristics

If you are considering liposuction, you should ask yourself the following questions:

  • Am I in good physical health?
  • Do I have good skin elasticity?
  • Have I lost weight naturally but struggle to lose those last few inches of fat?
  • Are excess deposits of fat preventing me from having the figure I desire?
  • Do I have realistic expectations about my results?

If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, then you may be a great candidate for liposuction. It is important that anybody undergoing an elective surgical procedure is healthy and choosing surgery for the right reasons. The ultimate goal of all liposuction procedures is to achieve a balanced appearance and natural results.

Liposuction With Body Contouring

If you answered “no” to having good skin elasticity, don’t worry. Liposuction may still be a good fit for you, but it will be performed in combination with another body contouring procedure. Patients with skin laxity after pregnancy or weight loss can undergo a combination procedure by combining liposuction with one or more of the following surgeries:
