Are You a Good Candidate for Liposuction?


Liposuction is a permanent surgical procedure that involves getting rid of extra body fat from various areas, such as the abdomen, buttocks, back, arms, breasts, hips, neck, legs, and hips. The main goal of liposuction is to enhance the appearance of a specific part of the body.

When to Consider Liposuction

Liposuction is a commonly done procedure for women and men who want to look and, more importantly, feel better about their body. With the most common reason people get liposuction being to build their self-esteem and confidence, there are many others, including:

  • Exercising and dieting just aren’t cutting it. Many people can eat well and exercise all they want but still experience unwanted fat. If this is the case, liposuction is a great option for you.
  • Having a baby changed your body. Wanting your pre-pregnancy body back is very common in women as they miss feeling great about being in their skin. Liposuction can help get you with this, as it will make your body appear slimmer!
  • You want to appear slimmer. Liposuction can help contour your body to make it appear smaller. To get liposuction done, you don’t need a complex reason. You could just want to look thinner and feel better about your body.
  • Everyone deserves to feel confident about the way they look. Liposuction can help you build confidence and a healthy body image by matching your inner and outer beauty.

What to Expect from Liposuction

Dr. Schaffer performs all liposuction procedures, making small, careful incisions in the problem area to suck out the fat cells. After a liposuction procedure, you will likely see swelling and bruising. Once they have subsided, you will start seeing the results. Usually, you will barely see any scarring because the incisions are so tiny. Liposuction is permanent. Therefore, as long as you maintain a healthy weight and exercise, you can see the results for the rest of your life.
