Do you work out and maintain a healthy diet, but still have some areas on your body that you can’t change? This may be due to fat deposits located in these areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise. If this sounds like you, you may be an ideal candidate for Smartlipo™.
Ideal liposuction candidates
Candidates for liposuction are adults who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone, and are within 30 percent of their ideal weight. You should be a non-smoker with no life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing. In addition, to qualify as an ideal candidate according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, you should have a positive outlook with specific goals in mind for a body contouring procedure.
Realistic expectations for liposuction
If you’re looking to lose a substantial amount of weight, liposuction is not for you. Liposuction is designed to help people already in a good state of health and physical fitness to fix a problem area that is resistant to diet and exercise. You should not go into a liposuction procedure thinking it will dramatically change your body. Rather, the procedure is intended to enhance the appearance of specific areas. Speak with your doctor before undergoing the procedure to ask questions about the results you can expect on your body using Smartlipo.
Beneficial consultation information
Be sure to bring any questions and concerns to your liposuction consultation to ensure you receive all the information you need to make a decision. Your doctor will provide you with information about what to expect during and after the procedure, and any steps you need to take before scheduling it. As with any medical procedure, there are risks involved and it’s important for you to understand all possible side effects of undergoing a liposuction procedure.
