There are many reasons why liposuction surgery is so appealing to many patients. In addition to the nearly instant results, the new laser assisted techniques allow patients to sculpt small pockets of fat with much greater detail than ever before. The great thing about laser lipo surgery is that it is minimally invasive and provides additional positive side effects for the skin over the treated area.
The important thing for any prospective patient to understand is that regardless of the technique involved, liposuction surgery is not a weight loss solution. It is not a cure for obesity and does not resolve any issues related to being overweight. Anyone looking for quick weight loss should consult a professional and work through an exercise and diet plan. Most weight issues are not a matter of having too much body fat but rather a result of poor lifestyle habits and choices. Change the lifestyle and the body will naturally adapt.
Liposuction is for patients who are already within a reasonable range of their ideal weight and in overall good health. Anyone with a medical history will have to be carefully analyzed by their plastic surgeon before they can be considered eligible for the procedure. It is simply a strategy to sculpt areas of the body that can be difficult to shape through exercise and dieting. That is why many patients request to remove liposuction love handles because those bulges are the one of the hardest places to lose fat.
Besides being physically prepared for the surgery it is important for the patient to be mentally ready as well. The patient must be in good physical shape so that they will come out of the surgery and be able to recover and heal naturally without serious complications. This is the same principle for requiring a mental stability. The patient must be able to accept the results of their liposuction treatment regardless of whether or not the results were what they expected.
