Liposuction: Are You a Good Candidate?

Plastic Surgeon Scottsdale

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that is used to slim and reshape certain areas of the body. This process involves the removal of fat that has failed to respond to regular exercise and a healthy diet. Some of the most common parts of the body for which liposuction is used include the thighs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, flanks, and waist. However, if you have stubborn fat on your back, upper arms, chest , chin, or neck, then this procedure can also be used to reshape these areas.

The best candidates are also relatively close to their goal weights or have BMI’s less than 30 to be specific. Also, this procedure is best-suited for individuals who are non-smokers, have good overall health, and have specific body contouring goals. The procedure should not be used as a weight loss solution, but a way to treat stubborn areas that persist after achieving your goals.

Depending on the area or number of areas that you desired to have treated, liposuction can be done as a minimally invasive in-office procedure with local anesthesia for those who do not desire to have general anesthesia.
