The Ideal Candidate for Liposuction

The Ideal Candidate for Liposuction

You’re dieting, exercising, and going the extra mile to slim down and tone your body, but stubborn fat keeps you from realizing your goals. Don’t worry: You’re not alone. Fat can hang around even when you’ve put in tons of hard work to get rid of it, and sometimes all you need is a little assistance to achieve your dream aesthetic. 

At DiGeronimo MD Advanced Plastic Surgery, we provide liposuction to get you through that final mile of weight loss of body shaping to reach your ultimate goal. Lipo can be used on many different areas of your body to suck away stubborn fat pockets and leave you looking slim and trim.

Liposuction 101

Liposuction is often referred to as body-contouring surgery. It’s a highly in-demand cosmetic procedure that doesn’t take long and has a fairly swift recovery. Your doctor inserts a tiny tube into the area of problem fat, and sucks out the offending globules of tissue, flattening your abs, toning your upper arms, or slimming down your thighs.  

Dr. DiGeronimo consults with every patient to understand your goals and dreams, and helps you plot a realistic path towards making them a reality. It all starts with deciding what area or areas of your body need a little help.

Common lipo locations

Sneaky fat can take up residence almost anywhere, then stubbornly resist eviction. When even the most strict diet and exercise program doesn’t work, it’s time to get lipo.

Liposuction works under your chin and on your neck, and down around your calves and ankles. However, the most common place men and women request liposuction is around the middle of the body and limbs, where fat is most likely to linger.

First stop: the stomach and abdomen. Whether you’re sporting a muffin top or a beer belly, lipo can help shrink your waistline.  Next up: The hips and upper back where fat bulges or rolls can make finding clothes that fit smoothly difficult.

Some spots on the body are more likely to pose a problem for women more than men. “Saddlebags” are fat deposits located on the outer thighs just below the hip bones. These are extremely resistant to diet and exercise. 

Ideal lipo candidates 

If you want liposuction, Dr. DiGeronimo wants you to be in good health before you undergo the procedure. He’ll also ask that you:

One of the most important things to understand about liposuction is that it isn’t a weight-loss solution. A typical patient will lose a total of two to five pounds during lipo fat removal, so you’ll need to be in the best shape possible before your liposuction surgery.
