Some people in Pompano Beach have the mistaken idea that liposuction is a magic cure to help people get rid of fat all over their body. They think that a person can live any lifestyle and be at any weight and then receive the benefits that come from liposuction. This is not the case at all. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure. It is designed to remove fat that is located only in certain areas of the body.
In order to qualify for liposuction treatments, we will first have to examine your health, as well as your lifestyle. Your health is an important factor because liposuction does involve a surgical procedure. In comparison to many other surgical procedures, it is quite minor. This is especially true using some of the newer techniques that are available with many liposuction procedures. However, you will still have some downtime, and there are still other things to consider. So everything starts with a health assessment at our office near Pompano Beach.
We will also ask you questions about your lifestyle. This is an important factor because, as mentioned at the outset, this is not a procedure that is designed as a weight loss procedure. An individual needs to be at or pretty close to a healthy weight in order to qualify for treatment. If at one time you were heavy but have lost a lot of weight, liposuction may be a great option for you to get rid of those last few stubborn pockets of fat. However, it’s not going to help an individual who does not lead a healthy lifestyle and needs to lose a lot of weight.
It is important for all individuals interested in liposuction to be realistic when they visit us. This is an amazing contouring tool that can be used to remove fat from certain areas of the body. However, you are not likely to lose a lot of weight. Of course, when you visit us for your consultation, we will discuss your specific goals and then help you to see if they are really possible.
