Is Liposuction Right For You?
Women and men in Winter Park and all over Orlando considering liposuction may wonder how they can determine whether the procedure is right for them. The liposuction procedure is growing in popularity, and is an excellent option for many patients who want to eliminate small areas of fat, such as the “love handles.” Thousands of men and women take control of their shape each year with this safe and effective surgery.
Key Factors To Check When Considering a Liposuction Procedure
When patients come to our practice for a liposuction consultation, there are some quick and easy ways that we check if this is the right procedure for their needs. Here’s a shortened version of our checklist to see if you’re ready for liposuction:
- Physical: One of the best ways to prepare for any surgery including liposuction is to check that you are at a reasonable weight for your age and height. Since liposuction is not intended as a tool for major weight loss, check your cosmetic goals to make sure this procedure is right for you.
- Lifestyle: Ideal liposuction candidates are people who lead active and healthy lifestyles, but who have stubborn pockets of fat, such as “love handles” that diet and exercise alone won’t eliminate.
- Mental/Emotional: Although advances in procedural techniques have made liposuction a safe procedure, it’s important to understand the mild risks associated with any surgery and to consider your liposuction recovery plan. Bruising and swelling should subside 2-4 weeks after a liposuction procedure with the final result taking shape over 2-3 months.
