Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction has helped millions of people to achieve the figure they desire and boost their confidence. It is a great body contouring procedure for the vast majority of people who are looking to improve the shape of their body by removing problem areas of fat that do not respond to weight loss and which conceal the muscle tone you work hard to achieve. However, liposuction is not for everyone.

Physical Attributes of a Good Candidate

Liposuction is a surgical technique, therefore, it is important to ensure you are in good health. For someone who is a good candidate for liposuction, it is a very safe procedure, but for poorer candidates, the risks increase. The best candidates are:

  • At or near ideal weight
  • Leading a generally active lifestyle
  • In good overall health
  • Have good skin tone
  • A non-smoker

If you do not meet the above characteristics it does not necessarily mean you are not a good candidate for liposuction, but it may limit your results or increase your risk. If you do not have good skin tone, you may get better results from a tummy tuck or other body lift. Non-surgical body contouring, such as Coolsculpting®, may be an option for those patients who do not meet the criteria for liposuction. Your provider will evaluate your condition in detail during your consultation and make a recommendation based on your medical history and your specific condition.
