Is Liposuction Right for Me?

Published on August 5, 2020 by

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available because it offers a way to target stubborn bulges of body fat that are ruining the beauty of your figure. If you are interested in liposuction, there are a few things you should know about what is possible through liposuction.

Ideal candidates for liposuction should be close to their ideal body weight but may have a few problem areas, like their abdomen, where stubborn fat remains. Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. It is intended for targeted fat removal and body contouring. If you have loose or stretched out skin, liposuction may not be your ideal option as the procedure does not help to tighten skin. Other body contouring procedures, like a tummy tuck or thigh lift, may be better options.
