Is Liposuction Worth It?

Of the various plastic surgery procedures that are available today, liposuction continually sits near the top of the popularity pile. This fat-reducing procedure has been in the top 5 for many years running. Seeing this, some people may assume that liposuction is naturally a good choice. On the other hand, some people find it difficult to decide to have liposuction because they want a guarantee that the procedure will be worth it. Here, we discuss what you need to know to be able to answer that question.

Liposuction: Where to Begin

One of the most important points of discussion in any plastic surgery consultation is what the patient wishes to achieve. Expectations are everything. Liposuction is performed to reduce fat, yes. However, a patient will not weigh much less after this procedure than they did to begin with. Liposuction is about body contouring, not weight loss. Therefore, the person who is interested in this procedure can begin by identifying where they are with their healthiest body weight. A qualified plastic surgeon can assist with this.

What Can Liposuction Do?

Some of the reasons people get liposuction include:

  • To eliminate stubborn fat. Liposuction is done to help sculpt some of the most challenging parts of the body. Common target areas include the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, hips, flanks, arms, and the chin.
  • To feel better in clothing that suits their personality and lifestyle. If you live in an area where it gets hot at certain times of the year (and that’s everywhere!), you may want to wear shorts but feel self-conscious about thigh fat. Some people don’t wear short sleeves because they don’t like the backs of their arms. Some get a muffin top that prevents them from wearing their favorite jeans. Liposuction can open all kinds of doors to new fashion choices.
  • To enhance body proportions. Beauty is all about proportion and harmony. Extra fat in one part of the body draws the eye right to that area. Removing bulges and pooches allows the eye to take in the body as a whole, beautiful entity.
