Get the Most Out of Liposuction

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

Anyone who has unwanted fat may think there’s nothing they can do. If you are at a normal weight for your age and gender but still find pockets of fat here and there, you may want to consider liposuction. However, this procedure is still considered surgical and you want to make sure you understand it thoroughly so you can get the most out of the procedure.

Good Candidates

If you ask any plastic surgeon, they will tell you that the best candidates for liposuction are people who are in good health and do not smoke, and wish to get rid of fat in the neck, arms, stomach, legs and other areas of the body. However, it should also be noted that liposuction shouldn’t be used as a weight-loss regimen. You should consider a diet and exercise that fit your lifestyle and abilities first. Many people find that they stick with a diet and exercise program for a few years with little to show for their efforts, and in this case, the procedure may be helpful.


New technologies are always popping up in every medical field, including elective surgeries such as liposuction. The procedure works the same; however, simple changes to the equipment – ultrasounds and lasers – allow for better results and improved comfort. Smaller tubes can also be used to reduce risk and pain.

Because various options are available, talk with your cosmetic surgeon first to determine which ones they offer and which will be best for you.


Safety is always a concern, no matter what procedure or treatment you undergo. It is important to understand that liposuction is considered a surgery, and all surgeries offer some kind of risk. You should speak with your surgeon about the various risks involved and weigh the pros and cons based on your personal needs and desires.

However, the procedure is considered safe, as long as you use a well-trained physician who is competent enough to understand the procedure and techniques that work best.


The procedure can be a permanent solution to fat reduction, as long as you follow the post-operative directions provided by your doctor. If you gain some weight after the procedure, it is likely that the effects will not last. Therefore, it’s best to have a diet and exercise plan in place to ensure you maintain your weight effectively and keep it balanced.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
