Liposuction, sometimes called Lipoplasty, is the term used to describe a surgical procedure that literally sucks or vacuums the fat out of your body. A truly ideal sounding solution to many, but there are several things to considering seriously before make your decision to undergo Liposuction. The first of which is understanding if it is the best option for you. You will need to asses your health and your expectations.

Ideal candidates are in good health and have been at a stabilized weight for an extended period of time. You should also not be a smoker. In most cases, the ideal situation for Liposuction is someone who has an overall healthy diet and has tried exercise to eliminate their problem areas with little to no results. Liposuction is a great option for those stubborn fat deposits that can be hereditary and difficult to overcome with diet and exercise.

Liposuction will not give you a new body, it can only give you a thinner version of your own. It is best to discuss your goals with your Plastic Surgeon to find out if they are attainable through Liposuction.
