Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Because liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, candidates should be physically fit and close to their ideal weight. Liposuction is not recommended if you are planning to become pregnant or lose a significant amount of weight.
You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you:
- Are within 30% of your ideal body weight
- Are in good overall health
- Have good skin elasticity (as the skin must shrink after the procedure)
- Have stubborn deposits of excess fat in the abdomen, thighs, hips, breasts, back, buttocks, arms, calves, ankles, or neck
Areas that can be slimmed with liposuction
Liposuction can be used on many body areas, from larger areas such as the tummy and thighs, to smaller and harder-to-reach areas such as below the chin. Other areas that can be successfully slimmed with a customized liposuction procedure include:
- love handles
Liposuction for breast reduction
Liposuction can be used to help in. a breast reduction to reduce the size of breasts to allow the breasts to feel lighter and more comfortable. People with youthful, elastic skin are great candidates for breast liposuction, as their skin will retract after liposuction and the breasts tend to lift naturally due to reduced weight.
Liposuction for torso and tummy
One of the most common areas where liposuction is used is the torso, including back and bra line, love handles and abdomen. These areas can be sculpted with liposuction for a trimmer, slimmer, shapelier silhouette. An hourglass figure can be achieved with liposuction performed on the abdomen and love handles for a more attractive, sculpted figure, free from the bulges of excess fat.
Liposuction for thighs and arms
Stubborn fat on the thighs and arms can be some of the hardest to target with diet and exercise. Loose, saggy thighs or droopy upper arms can be slimmed with lipo, jumpstarting a diet and exercise program. Liposuction can remove much of the fat around the thighs and upper arms to create a shapelier, more appealing body contour. Elastic skin responds best to liposuction as the skin has the capacity to shrink back around the newly-slimmed area.
Liposuction for buttocks
An attractive butt is all about shape and lift – but achieving a shapely butt can be very difficult to achieve with diet and exercise alone. Lifted, rounder buttocks can be achieved with the help of a custom liposuction treatment. Liposuction will contour the buttocks and remove fat from areas of excess, such as a “banana roll.” For an even more dramatic lift, lipo can be combined with fat grafting, with the fat cells extracted, purified, and injected into the buttocks to create a more appealing derrière.
Brazilian butt lift
A Brazilian butt lift involves the combined use of liposuction and fat grafting to give your buttocks that beautifully lifted and rounded appearance. Fat cells are harvested from areas of excess, such as tummy, thighs, or love handles, and then strategically relocated to the buttocks. Many people with flat or small bottoms want to enhance the area with a custom Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Beck excels in this procedure, and has the artistry and technique required to achieve a truly beautiful outcome. His understanding of the most appealing body proportions, along with his safe, advanced techniques are the keys to achieving long-lasting results, and a more attractive figure.
What is the cost of liposuction?
The cost of liposuction varies, based upon the size and number of the areas being treated. The larger the area, and the quantity of fat that must be removed affects cost. There are fees associated with the procedure, such as the costs of anesthesia. The average cost of liposuction is between $2,000 to $4,000 for the procedure alone.
