Liposuction is an impactful procedure with little downtime – this is why it often shows up as the #1 Surgical Procedure plastic surgeons perform. Many people come in for consultation hoping they are a candidate for Liposuction. Here are some characteristics that better qualify individuals for Liposuction:
- Good health and fitness
- Healthy weight
- Good skin quality
- Focal fat/problem area
Fat that is removed may also be recycled back into the body: to the face, breasts and/or booty. Fat grafting is a smart way to move fat from an undesirable part of the body to a place requiring more fullness and rejuvenation.
Many are interested in learning more about – or have undergone – “lunchtime” fat reduction procedures that do not require anesthesia. SmartLipo, CoolSculpt, Bodytite all have cool catch-names and promise results, but provide very limited results. What you put in is what you get out: there is no magic. I see individuals who have spent good money on lackluster, barely there results from minimally invasive fat reduction/sculpting technologies. It makes better sense to spend your valuable money and time on the gold standard surgical procedure with guaranteed RESULTS!
