¿WHAT IS LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction, also known as liposculpture, is a surgical procedure used to remove fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the cheeks and neck, arms and breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs, and knees and ankles. Liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss, but a method for removing localized accumulations of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise. If you are considering undergoing liposuction, you get basic information about the surgery, when indicated, how it's performed, and what results can be expected.
¿WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE?
The ideal candidates to undergo liposuction are those who have a relatively normal weight but have fat deposits in localized areas. If you have a general state of good health, are psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations, you will be a good candidate. Liposuction is not recommended if you have had recent surgery in the treatment area, if you have poor circulation in that area or heart or breathing problems.
It is also important to know that liposuction does not improve cellulite. Liposuction improves your appearance and self-confidence. Before deciding whether to perform liposuction think about what you want to achieve and discuss with your plastic surgeon.
If you undergo extensive liposuction you will be instructed on how to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on food and fluid intake, or taking snuff or suppressing medications, vitamins and iron supplements. If you have a cold or infection of any kind, especially if skin, surgery can be postponed. Make sure also that a family member or companion can get you home when you are discharged and, if necessary, can help a couple of days.
