Liposuction is a body contouring plastic surgery procedure in which the superficial fat is removed using specialized techniques. At Nuance Cosmetic Surgery, we conduct stringent patient selection and utilize meticulous surgical techniques that allow us to have an impressive safety record. With advancements in plastic surgery, today’s procedure techniques have made it safer and less invasive. This is particularly true for people who are good candidates based on the results of their consultation.
You are Near Your Ideal Weight
As with any body contouring plastic surgery, you’re considered a great candidate for liposuction if you are near your ideal weight. While the procedure removes fat, it only deals with superficial fat that sits next to your skin. This type of fat does not always respond to diet and exercise and is believed to stem from hereditary or genetic predisposition.
Meanwhile, the visceral fat that surrounds the abdominal organs is linked to obesity. This type of fat, which originates from poor lifestyle choices, does not respond to liposuction and can only be dealt with through diet and exercise.
You Have Good Skin Elasticity
To achieve smooth results from liposuction, it is a sacrosanct rule that you have good skin elasticity, thus allowing it to redrape to the new contour. For this reason, younger patients tend to achieve better results than seniors. Nonetheless, if you have reduced skin elasticity and still want to proceed with the procedure, there is a way to prevent surface irregularities.
You are Healthy
We will perform an assessment and go over your medical history to rule out conditions that may interfere with healing or prevent you from achieving optimal results from the procedure.
You Have Realistic Goals and Expectations
This procedure has been shown to provide a high patient satisfaction rate. However, this is only true for someone with realistic goals and expectations. Take note that the final results of the procedure largely depend on your underlying anatomies.
The success of your procedure also relies on your commitment. The general rule of thumb is to achieve your optimal health before surgery through lifestyle changes: stop smoking, avoid medications and supplements known to interfere with healing, and achieve your ideal weight through healthy means.
