Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that removes fat cells to improve the contours of your body. Patients frequently request liposuction to liposuctionchange the look of their thighs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, back, face or legs. Liposuction can be a great way to get a body you love, but it’s important to understand what it can and can’t do. Learn more from your Oak Brook and Naperville, IL plastic surgeon.

Who Should Get Liposuction?

Liposuction is most effective for people who have a generally stable weight, and are no more than slightly overweight. Ideal candidates are in good physical condition, have tight and flexible skin and do not suffer from immune or circulatory disorders. Even if you're not an ideal candidate, it may still be possible to get positive results from liposuction. Talk to your Naperville and Oak Brook plastic surgeon to find out if it could be the right treatment for you.

Liposuction does not treat obesity. It can perfect the shape of areas that just aren’t responding to diet and exercise, but it isn't designed to reduce your overall weight. If you’re looking to lose weight throughout your body, start with making changes to your diet and exercise routine. If that doesn’t work, bariatric surgery may be a better alternative to liposuction.

Skin irregularities won't be solved by liposuction, either. If you’re worried about the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks or skin folds, liposuction may not be the best choice for you. Cellulite in particular is often worsened by liposuction. However, it is possible to remove excess skin if you choose to combine your liposuction with other cosmetic procedures.

How Long Will My Results Last?

The results of liposuction can potentially be permanent, but it’s also possible to regain fat if your weight changes in the future. For this reason, you should be sure you’re committed to maintaining a healthy weight long-term before undergoing liposuction.
