6 Questions to Ask About Liposuction

What is liposuction?

Also called lipoplasty, lipectomy, liposculpture suction or by the shortened version, lipo, this cosmetic surgery involves breaking down and sucking fat from parts of your body, the Medical News Today says.

Should I get one?

A lot of mothers find it difficult to get their post-partum bodies back in shape. If there are stubborn deposits of fat along with your belly and no amount of exercise or diet is working, then getting liposuction is an option. This is an effective way of removing stubborn fat from areas of your body that aren’t impacted by exercise or diet.

What do I need to know?

Liposuction isn’t a weight loss method. If you’re getting this procedure, you need to have a stable body weight. You also need to be as close to your ideal size and weight as possible. That’s because the surgery will only remove undesirable deposits of body fat in your body.

What can I expect?

The procedure will remove stubborn deposits of fat, but it won’t get rid of your cellulite. If you have dimples or stretch marks, they’re likely to stay unless the placement or location of the wounds can conceal the marks. Talk to your surgeon about this possibility.

What to look for?

Look for a reputable surgeon to perform the procedure. All surgeries come with general risks. But finding an experienced and competent surgeon can do a lot to eliminate those risks and put many of your worries to rest.

What to find one?

When you look for a surgeon, start by getting referrals and word-of-mouth suggestions from your contacts. Friends, family, colleagues, and even office mates can be a good source of information. By getting tips and advice from your contacts, you can find the right surgeon that much sooner.
