Losing weight can be hard but it does not have to be with the help of liposuction. Being trim is becoming increasingly important in today's society. How a person looks and presents themselves can influence social interactions and even advancement opportunities at work. While looks should not be so important, the reality is that they are a consideration throughout life. Sometimes, being overweight creates these negative influences because of how a person feels about themselves, rather than how the world perceives them. If you are in that situation and feeling insecure because of your excess weight, it is important to take the steps necessary to correct the problem. Take the first steps to lose the weight that is holding you back.

Is liposuction the right option?

Our patients regularly visit us wanting to know if this is the right solution for them. The only way to answer that is to conduct an examination and have a consultation. Typically, this is the right option for anyone who is obese. It is not the best option for someone who only has 5 pounds to lose. However, someone who is excessively overweight can certainly benefit from it. Also, we can sometimes target far in specific areas to help people who have been trying to lose weight but are not seeing results in one area of the body. For example, a person may have lost weight everywhere but their waistline. In that instance, we could help.

It is also important to keep in mind that any type of plastic surgery is reserved for patients that are in relatively good health prior to undergoing it. This is part of the examination and consultation and why we ask for a thorough health history.

Fast results

Ultimately, one of the main reasons patient select liposuction is because they are tired of slow results and want to see a faster transformation. This is perfectly understandable and we are happy to be of assistance. In fact, we have found that many of our patients that undergo this procedure become more active afterward, which helps them to keep the weight off. This is because carrying extra weight makes a person more fatigued and it may be more difficult to be active in that situation. When feeling trim and looking better, people are more encouraged to continue with an exercise routine. It is important to wait to exercise until we have given clearance to do so. Naturally, there will be a recovery process after the procedure.

Other solutions

If liposuction is not the best option, it is likely that we have another option that is. For example, if a person does not have significant excess fat or loose skin, a lift procedure would be more appropriate.
