The best candidate for liposuction is someone who is at or near her ideal weight, has good skin tone, and has localized fat deposits that have been resistant to diet and exercise. Now, if a woman is 10 to 15 pounds overweight, she may still be a very good candidate and can expect significant improvement. But she has to understand that liposuction is not a weight loss tool. Some patients may benefit from liposuction, but only if it is combined with another procedure, such as a tummy tuck. The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. So please, give us a call. I’m Dr. Joseph Fata.
