Am I a good candidate for liposuction surgery?
You should be realistic in your expectations before deciding on liposuction surgery. It can enhance your appearance and, therefore, your self confidence, but it will not necessarily achieve your ideal or change the way other people treat you.
The most suitable candidates for a liposuction procedure are average weight people with firm, elastic skin who have pockets of excess fat in specific areas. They should also be physically healthy and psychologically stable. Age is not a major consideration but older patients with less elastic skin should not expect the same results as younger patients with firmer bodies.
There is greater risk for individuals who have medical problems such as diabetes, significant heart or lung disease, poor circulation, or who have recently had surgery near the area to be contoured.
