What is Liposuction?

You want to enhance your figure and liposuction might be the right fit. But before you start looking at surgical dates, you should know what the procedure is — and what it isn’t. This overview will help you set realistic expectations and assess your candidacy.

Liposuction permanently removes small amounts of unwanted fat from targeted areas such as your abdomen, hips, and thighs. It can dramatically improve your silhouette by sculpting and defining problem spots. Many liposuction patients even find that their clothing fits better and looks more flattering after surgery.

The problem with stubborn, localized fat is that it’s often the result of heredity. It may not disappear with regular exercise and a healthy diet. Liposuction helps you overcome frustrating circumstances and enjoy the results you’ve been working so hard to achieve.

Some weight loss can happen with surgical fat removal, but it isn’t a weight-loss procedure. You’ll need to put in the work before and after surgery to enjoy a slimmer shape. Along those lines, you shouldn’t get liposuction because you expect it to change your clothing size.

Traditional liposuction doesn’t tighten or smooth the skin. It won’t correct sagging caused by age or weight fluctuations. And it isn’t a treatment for cellulite, the dimpled texture that often develops on the thighs and buttocks.

With these things in mind, you may be a great candidate for liposuction if:

  • You are at or near your ideal body weight.
  • You want to eliminate disproportionate body fat that has not improved through other methods.
  • You want more definition and shape in certain areas of your figure.
  • You have good skin elasticity and a minimal amount of excess skin.
