Are you considering lipo? If so, you are one of hundreds of thousands of individuals who look to have this procedure done on an annual basis. Although you may be interested in having this procedure performed and although you know the basics about the procedure, you’re probably still asking yourself if it’s right for you.
There are a few things that you should take into consideration. These factors include things like potential recovery time and what the procedure can realistically do as opposed to what you think the procedure might be able to do for you.
When determining whether or not liposuction is right for you, it’s good to first examine your own health status. Are you healthy enough to have lipo performed? Although many of these procedures bill themselves as minimally-invasive, they are still surgical procedures that are making alterations to your body. There are good reasons why lipo can improve your physical and mental health. But these benefits will only be seen if you are at a fitness level and a health level where you can undergo the procedure without negative consequences.
It’s good to remember that this is not a weight loss procedure. It is a body contouring procedure. This is because it is designed to help you remove fat and not weight. So if you’re concerned about losing weight, then you might want to go through a diet program first.
Both men and women can benefit from this procedure. Most women will have lipo done in their abdominal areas, their buttocks, and their hips. Men can have the procedure performed in the same areas.
It’s also good to think about the post-surgery needs that you will have. Failing to follow our surgeon’s post-surgical recommendations can result in less than ideal results from your procedure.
