What is liposuction?

Liposuction is an invasive cosmetic procedure that removes fat that is resistant to reduction through diet and exercise. A plastic surgeon usually performs the procedure on the hips, belly, thighs, buttocks, back, or face to improve their shape. Liposuction can also be combined with other plastic surgeries, such as facelifts, breast reductions, and tummy tucks. It should be understood that liposuction isn’t a replacement for a healthy diet or for regular exercise. Liposuction can provide patients with well-proportioned body contours when applied to several areas of the body.

Who is a candidate for liposuction?

The ideal candidate for liposuction is a man or a woman in good physical health who struggles with the loss of excess fatty areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. Patients who have good skin elasticity tend to achieve the best results. Patients with a significant amount of loose skin are often treated with a procedure that combines liposuction with skin excision, such as atummy tuck.

What should I know beforehand?

The most important step is to consult with your Miami plastic surgeon. Explain your goals, and your plastic surgeon will inform you of your options, the risks, and the benefits. If you elect to go ahead with liposuction, your surgeon will give you instructions on pre-op preparations. Do not be surprised if the instructions include diet and alcohol restrictions. Your plastic surgeon will want to know about any allergies you have, and any medications you take, including over the counter and herbal supplements. He will likely recommend you stop taking certain meds, such as blood thinners and certain painkillers several weeks before surgery.
