For too many men and women in Beverly Hills, liposuction is considered a cure-all. This isn’t really the case, though. Just like every other cosmetic procedure, some people are better candidates for liposuction than others. What are the elements that can really contribute to great lipo results?
For the best results, you should already be in good physical and mental health before scheduling any type of cosmetic surgery, including lipo. With so many opportunities for getting out and staying active, not to mention the “California Culture” emphasis on eating fresh, healthy foods, staying healthy should be a focus before surgery.
Many prospective patients mistakenly view liposuction as an alternative to weight loss. Liposuction is for sculpting the body, not shedding pounds. If your goal is major weight loss, then that should take place well before any cosmetic surgery. Patients who have already reached a steady target weight will have much better lipo results than those who are still struggling with gaining and losing.
While lipo can make a big improvement in the shape of your body, it’s still important to maintain realistic expectations about your end results. You’ll look slimmer and more toned, but you won’t be dramatically thinner. Also, although lipo is minimally invasive, it is still a surgery. The scars will be small, but there will be scars; the healing period, while shorter than major procedures, is still a necessary part of recovery.
With good health, a steady weight and realistic expectations, you should get very positive results from liposuction, especially for areas of your body that haven’t been able to get toned through diet and exercise alone.
