Liposuction in Hollywood, FL is an effective way to reshape your body when natural body shaping methods do not work. During the treatment, the doctor skillfully removes stubborn fat from preselected areas. However, not all clients seeking this procedure will qualify, since it involves surgery. Ask yourself the following questions to determine if you are a candidate.
Am I the Ideal Weight and Done Losing Weight?
Liposuction is only designed to remove stubborn pockets of fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise, so the ideal candidate is done dieting and is at or close to their ideal body weight. You may be advised to lose weight, but you will need to stop at some point to avoid excessive loose skin and stabilize the weight to help the doctor locate target areas better. To reduce the chance of loose skin from the required weight loss, tone the muscles to give the body a good foundation for adapting to the new shape.
Am I in Good Health?
You must be in good overall health to undergo a procedure that requires anesthesia. Our doctor will evaluate you to determine what conditions could give undesired results or impact your health. Clients with diabetes, heart conditions, clotting disorders, and lung disease do not typically qualify for liposuction. Smokers will be asked to stop smoking and discontinue certain medicines for a set amount of time before and after the procedure.
Good skin elasticity is also important to help the body adjust to the new shape. Skin with good elasticity bounces back when you pinch it. Elasticity commonly decreases with age, so younger candidates tend to have better results. You could still have the procedure with poor skin elasticity, but it may need to be combined with another procedure to address the skin.
Do I Have Realistic Expectations?
Liposuction in Hollywood, FL contours the body, but it is not a weight loss program. It is intended to remove fat from your trouble areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. It does not address loose skin or cellulite. You could see results in weeks, but the final result takes months to be seen. The speed of results is not the same for each client.
