If you’re considering liposuction, there are a few ways to determine if you would be a good candidate or not. This procedure is a good option for those who are trying to get a natural appearance and one that is a bit more shapely on areas of the body after losing weight. The first thing that you need to do before liposuction is consider whether you plan to lose more weight in the future and if you’ve tried other methods of getting rid of the fat, as this is often an option for those who have tried exercising and dieting with little results in order to lose the last few pockets that are needed to give a contoured shape. Dustin C. Derrick, MD is the lead plastic surgeon at Cosmetic Surgery of DFW for Mommy Makeovers (and liposuction) in Fort Worth, TX. He would be more than happy to evaluate your case and see if you can benefit from lipo.
There are often areas of your body that are usually resistant to the impacts of dieting and exercising. These are usually the hips, love handles, and thighs. The fat in these areas just won’t seem to go away no matter how hard you try. If you have these areas on your body, then you could be a good candidate for liposuction. If you’re at a stable weight, then you would be a better candidate for liposuction than if you were at a point in life where your weight might fluctuate over time.
You need to understand that liposuction isn’t a way to lose a significant amount of weight. It gives you the sleek look that you desire after losing weight. If you do gain or lose a large amount of weight after the procedure, then you might notice that the results are altered. If you’re in good overall health, then you would be a better candidate for liposuction compared to someone who smokes, drinks, or has health issues that need to be addressed.
Another feature that makes you a good candidate for the procedure is if you know the precise area that you want to target instead of trying to decide on the best area where you want to see changes. This is one of the reasons why an honest discussion during a consultation is so important.
