When should liposuction be considered?

Posted on June 13, 2017 by Cynthia M. Poulos, M.D.

Are you considering liposuction but have no idea whether it is a sensible choice for you or not? The non-invasive procedure can do wonders for your figure but that does not mean you should book one immediately. Here are a couple of things you need to consider beforehand:

If you are in the prime of health, then you are an ideal candidate for liposuction. Plus, you also need to have smooth and tight skin without cellulite or wrinkles for it to work. You can still consider the procedure even if these don’t apply to you but make sure to ask a professional first. If you have localized bulges on your body, then the surgeon can get remarkable results. For instance, if your hips are large or thighs are huge but the rest of your body is fine then you are a good candidate. These areas respond well to the procedure.

Always consult an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon before undergoing the procedure. Even if you think you know your body inside and out chances are they might uncover something new during the examination. Always choose a surgeon who has a good track record such as Dr. Poulos who has more than 2 decade’s worth of experience in the field.

The excess skin that will droop down after the procedure can be removed with Laser Skin Tightening. This procedure reacts with the innermost layers of the skin where the collagen is located and which is responsible for giving the skin its elasticity. This weakens as we age though.

No need to look further than Dr. Poulos for liposuction that can give you the results you are looking for. The procedure will be preceded by an insightful consultation and physical examination which will allow the doctor to mark the areas to be reduced if possible.
