If you’ve been working hard at maintaining a diet and fitness program and stubborn areas of fat remain in spite of targeted exercise, liposuction may be a solution. Patients who have spent time getting their bodies into their best shape are understandably frustrated when stubborn fat deposits remain in spite of their efforts to attain the body shape they desire. While liposuction can’t bring about dramatic change, it can be an effective solution to stubborn fat deposits. Unsure whether you’re an ideal candidate for plastic surgery? Dr. Rast will be happy to meet with you and discuss the available options, including liposuction.
Although popular culture sometimes implies that liposuction is a means of weight loss, this is untrue. The ideal candidate for the procedure is within about 30% of their ideal weight, and desires to sculpt or shape specifically targeted areas of stubborn fat deposits, especially in the stomach, thighs, arms, face, or neck.
As with any surgery, smoking, a history of medical challenges, and prescription and non-prescription medications can make surgery inadvisable. Dr. Rast will take the time to go over your medical history, your goals, and your expectations to determine whether liposuction is the proper treatment for you.
Liposuction removes fatty tissue from under the skin. It may require a follow-up surgery to remove excess skin and to sculpt the area to create the ideal final result. It requires careful monitoring and aftercare to ensure the best results. Patients who understand the risks and limitations, who have specific goals in mind, and who are non-smokers in good health are good candidates for the procedure.
