1) Who are the best candidates for liposuction?
The best candidates for liposuction are normal-weight people with firm, elastic skin who have pockets of excess fat in certain areas. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon. Age is not a major consideration; however, older patients may have diminished skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin. Liposuction carries greater risk for individuals with medical problems such as diabetes, significant heart or lung disease, poor blood circulation, or those who have recently had surgery near the area to be contoured.
2) Should I diet and exercise to lose weight before or after liposuction?
People about 25 – 30% above their ideal weight are candidates for body contouring surgeries. Liposuction is an excellent way to change body contours, but it is most effective when the treatment can be focused on a few problematic areas. Therefore, Liposuction is best used as a treatment for diet-resistant areas of fat rather than diffuse collections of fat.
3) Is liposuction an alternative for diet and exercise?
Liposuction is not an alternative for diet and exercise. The number of litres of fat that should be removed through surgery is limited. The international norm is set at 8 – 10% of the total body weight. When somebody is excessively overweight, diet and exercise should be their first priority. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity its a body contouring/sculpting procedure.
4) What happens if I gain weight after liposuction?
When fat cells are removed through liposuction, those cells never return. If the patient consumes more calories than are burned, those extra calories are stored as fat in the remaining cells. The areas treated with liposuction will never be as prominent as they would have been, but the patient is likely to have a generalized increase in size. Weight gain after surgery should be avoided.
