If you are ready to remove the additional, stubborn fat from your body, liposuction may be the perfect procedure to meet your needs. Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures, and it provides a lot of benefits. Once you get liposuction, it’s extremely important to follow instructions provided by your doctor and avoid all of the things you are NOT supposed to do after liposuction.

But what exactly is liposuction? Who is a good candidate? How should someone prepare? And what should a person NOT do after their procedure?

Below is more information about liposuction and what you’ll want to avoid doing after your liposuction procedure.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a medical procedure in which fat is removed from a patient’s stomach, face, neck, hips, torso, calves, knees, upper shoulder area, or ankles. This procedure is a wonderful way to contour your body. While some people believe liposuction is for weight loss, it actually isn’t. It’s for patients that have some fat tissue left over after they’ve already changed their diet and exercise routine. Patients that have a relatively normal body weight with a little extra fat are the best candidates for liposuction.

The liposuction procedure involves a medical professional injecting a solution that decreases the bleeding and magnifies the treatment area. The solution may also include a numbing medicine. Fat is then removed using specialized tools.

For excess weight and stubborn fat deposits, contact The Lipo Group. We will provide you with a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for liposuction. We can then set an appointment to remove the extra fat.  

We also offer fat transfer services for those that have some extra fat that they would like moved elsewhere.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

There are a few factors that help to determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction. It’s important to understand what liposuction is and isn’t for to better understand if you are a good candidate. Liposuction is not supposed to be an alternative to exercise and a healthy diet. Instead, it is used for contouring. It is not a weight loss solution (even though you may lose a few pounds). Ideally, liposuction patients are within 25 pounds of their target weight. It’s also best if the patient is a non-smoker.

You may not be a good candidate for liposuction if you have medical issues such as lung disease, circulatory problems, heart disease, and other medical conditions. The team at The Lipo Group will let you know if any medical conditions you have exclude you from liposuction.

If you have any questions about liposuction and whether you are a good candidate, reach out to our team at The Lipo Group. We can set an appointment to meet with a doctor and determine if liposuction is right for you. If so, we’ll set an appointment for your liposuction procedure. We look forward to speaking with you and getting you scheduled for an appointment.

Preparing for Liposuction

There are a few things you’ll want to do to prepare for liposuction once it has been determined that you are a good candidate. These include maintaining or achieving a healthy weight before the procedure, avoiding anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin, and more.
