For those troubled spots that can’t seem to be slimmed down through traditional dieting and exercise, liposuction is a great solution. This procedure is commonly performed on the face, buttocks, thighs, abdomen and the hips. The body’s natural cellulite is left in-tack while only fat matter is removed. Who is a good candidate for liposuction? Individuals considering a cosmetic liposuction procedure should have realistic expectations in mind. For example, you cannot expect an extremely obese person to drop and keep off a 100 pounds of fat after a liposuction procedure. These beliefs are rationally illogical and not scientifically possible. In addition to realistic expectations, the individual should also:
- Be of average or slightly above-average weight
- Have firm, elastic skin
- Be in good overall health
- Have concentrated pockets of fat fail to respond to diet and/or exercise
People with excessive quantities of cellulite are not good candidates for liposuction. If a procedure were to be performed, patients may develop abnormal skin irregularities in the treat areas.
