Most of us have at least one thing that will bother us indefinitely. You can’t avoid it no matter how many calories you burn or how many kilometers you run. There’s a bulge or spilling of fat that, like a parasite, clings to your body. It’s no surprise that liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States.

It has become essential to a population that is becoming increasingly conscious of the need of staying healthy and look good. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), over 41,000 men underwent the surgery in 2010, helping liposuction to overtake breast augmentation as the most popular operation with over 325,000 procedures completed.

Who then is a good candidate for Liposuction? In this article, we will briefly examine the category of people who are considered good candidates for liposuction. If you fall into this category, then consider yourself the best fit to undergo this procedure.

Good candidates for Liposuction

Liposuction should not be considered an obesity therapy. You should also note that this won’t get rid of your stretch marks. The procedure permanently eliminates fat tissue and can change the form of the body. It’s crucial to note, though, that as successful as liposuction can be, the benefits may not persist if you gain weight afterward.

When should you consider Liposuction?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of a body area owing to excess fat deposits that are affecting your quality of life, you may want to consider liposuction.

If you are an adult who meets the following criteria, our doctors may recommend liposuction to you.

  • You’re about 30% of the way to your desired weight.
  • You have a strong muscle tone and tight, supple skin.
  • You don’t have a cigarette in your possession.
  • You have a good attitude, defined body contouring objectives, and reasonable outcomes expectations.
  • Diet and exercise haven’t succeeded as non-surgical treatments.
