Liposuction surgery may be perfect for you if you are healthy overall and can’t seem to eliminate certain stubborn fat areas with diet and exercise alone. A Liposuction procedure can aid you in reducing pockets of fat that prevent you from reaching your ideal body shape.
Lipoplasty, also known as liposuction, is a popular cosmetic surgery that targets and removes excess fat on certain areas of your body. Liposuction is not an alternative for weight loss. Although you will obtain a slimmer appearance, this surgical technique is optimal for people who want a more refined and contoured body.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
There are many factors to consider if you are planning to get liposuction surgery. If you are a healthy individual with no severe health conditions and are within 30% of your ideal weight, you may be a great candidate for liposuction.
You may also be eligible for liposuction if you have firm, flexible skin and good muscle tone. People who smoke or don’t lead healthy, active lifestyles may not be ideal candidates for liposuction.
If you are considering getting liposuction surgery, you should have a thorough consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. If you have realistic expectations about your body, liposuction may be suitable for you. The best way to determine if liposuction is ideal for you is to speak with Dr. Scott Greenberg, who will discuss the desired and realistic body goals you wish to achieve and your expected surgical outcome.
Dr. Scott Greenberg or a staff member at Winter Park Plastic Surgery & Laser Care Center will walk you through the process from beginning to end. Talking to a qualified and experienced surgeon will make you feel more confident when deciding about getting the procedure or not, as they can answer any questions and clear up any doubts you may have about the liposuction procedure.
What Happens During a Liposuction Consultation?
There are several things to discuss during your liposuction consultation, your health and body shape goals being the most important. During an in-person consultation for liposuction surgery, Dr. Scott Greenberg will discuss the treatment plans that are available and most applicable for your aesthetic goals.
Moreover, he will tell you more about how the procedure works and the results you will likely obtain. Surgery comes with risks, so your surgeon will also educate you about potential risks and complications that can occur during the operation.
During your pre-surgical appointment, he may also take photographs of the treatment areas. The photos will allow you to see the before pictures so you can compare them with the after images and view the visible difference the liposuction made.
Additionally, a liposuction consultation is a perfect place and time to ask Dr. Greenberg any questions or concerns you may have about liposuction surgery.
Prior to surgery, you will also undergo a preoperative appointment to evaluate your health and check for any pre-existing health conditions or risks before confirming that you are healthy enough to undergo a liposuction procedure.
