Who is a good candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction is an excellent option for those who are frustrated with stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded to changes in diet or exercise. Good candidates for the procedure are healthy non-smokers who have a realistic and positive outlook towards their surgery.
It's important to note that liposuction is not a long-term weight loss solution and is best suited to those who are at or close to their ideal weight. Although fat cells in the targeted areas are ultimately removed, you can still gain weight in other parts of the body, and maintaining your healthy lifestyle is an important part of preserving your results.
Liposuction is not an effective treatment for the appearance of cellulite or loose, wrinkled skin. However, you may decide with Dr. Engineer to combine your liposuction with other treatments or procedures to best attain your ideal goals.
