What follows are some important things to know about the liposuction procedure before you decide to pursue it.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure that breaks down fat under the skin, which is then removed. This fat layer is located in the subcutaneous layer just under the skin and is notoriously difficult to get rid of even with proper diet and exercise. Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure but is a method for removing this pocket of fat which can be non-responsive in healthy individuals.

Where can I have liposuction performed?

Areas where liposuction can be performed include:

  • Male breasts
  • Female breasts
  • Inner/ outer thighs
  • Abdomen/Belly pooch
  • Underside of the upper arms
  • Back of the neck
  • Love handles
  • Double chin

Who makes a good candidate for liposuction?

Individuals who are of good health, close to their ideal weight, and non-smokers make the best candidates for liposuction. Additionally, if you have subcutaneous fat, which is proving stubborn to remove through normal means of diet and exercise, liposuction may be ideal for you. This differs from individuals who have visceral fat, which resides underneath the muscle layer of the abdomen. Your doctor will also evaluate the condition of your skin to ensure it has the proper elasticity, as those who have loose skin or cellulite may not make good candidates for liposuction.
