Who is an ideal candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction may not be well suited to everyone and offer the best results. To be an ideal candidate for liposuction, you:
A. Should have stayed as close to your ideal body weight as possible (within about 30%)

The process of liposuction removes fat that is superficial and is resistant to most forms of exercise and lifestyle modifications. This type of fat could have its origin in a hereditary tendency.

The fat surrounding the organs, known as visceral fat, is correlated to obesity that comes from making poor dietary and lifestyle choices. This type of fat responds to fat-burning physical activities and eating wisely.

B. Are not overweight or obese but there is a particular body area that concerns you- such as the arms, stomach, abdomen, buttocks, etc

Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. It is a contouring method of the muscles and helps to attain a shapely appearance of the area. Do not consider it to be a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. Belly fat removal surgery can be effective if you have a healthy BMI.

C. The skin around the area is firm and elastic: To achieve good results from liposuction, the skin in the targeted area must be firm and maintain its elasticity. In a stomach fat removal, the areas with firm skin will adapt well to the new contour that will make the outcome smooth and pleasing.

D. You do not smoke: Smoking increases the risk of bleeding, delays healing, and increases the risk of serious complications. If you are someone who smokes, make sure to stop smoking at least one month before surgery, Stay away from smoking for one month after the procedure to achieve good results and avoid negative outcomes.

E. You have realistic goals and expectations

  • Anesthesia is required to perform a liposuction
  • The choice of anesthesia will depend upon the location of the surgery
  • The surgery starts with the doctor making one or more multiple incisions into the area and inserting a cannula into it.

The types of liposuction vary and are based on the technique used. But the common aim of all the types is to suck the excess fat out of the chosen area.

A. Tumescent liposuction– Most commonly used, this type involves the injection of a saline solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine.  By using this combination, the suction of the fat cells becomes easier. The technique spans a few hours to perform. It involves minimal blood loss and fluid replacement following surgery is rarely required. 

B. Ultrasound-guided liposuction–  As the name suggests, this technique uses sound waves beneath the skin to break down the fat cells.

C. Laser lipo– This technique uses heat energy in the form of lasers to melt the layers of fat under the skin.

Is liposuction safe?
