Find out if this is the right procedure for removing excess weight and getting the body you want.
We know that losing weight isn’t an easy task. While working out regularly and eating a healthy balanced diet are certainly crucial factors for leading a healthier life and shedding the pounds, we know that dealing with stubborn areas of fat can be frustrating and can impact your self-esteem. Our Hinsdale, IL, plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina Saulis is here to explain more about liposuction and what could make you an ideal candidate for this procedure.
What is liposuction?
This surgical procedure is used to remove fat from one or more areas of the body to reshape and contour the body the way you want. Liposuction can be performed virtually anywhere and is most commonly used to treat stubborn fat around the buttock, stomach, sides, thighs, back, neck and chin.
A small instrument is placed under the skin and the fat is suctioned out using this vacuum-like tool. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, so the patient will be completely asleep.
What makes someone a good candidate for liposuction?
When people hear liposuction they often think of it as a way to lose weight, but it’s important that you don’t see this cosmetic procedure as a weight loss solution. It is truly meant to enhance and contour the body, but it shouldn’t be considered a treatment for obesity because the results are too subtle. Good skin elasticity and those within 30 percent of their ideal body weight are good candidates for liposuction.
If you are a healthy individual who is realistic about the goals you want to achieve through cosmetic surgery in Hinsdale, IL, then liposuction could give you with the results you want. If you are dealing with chronic health problems then you may be at a higher risk for certain surgical complications, so we will need to perform a thorough medical evaluation beforehand to determine whether liposuction is safe for you.
