It is extremely frustrating when you work hard to lose weight, but you are not able to get rid of stubborn fat deposits on your body. You may avoid all of your favorite foods, count your calories and go to the gym on a regular basis. But no matter how hard you try, you may not be able to get rid of your love handles, fat on your thighs or belly fat. This does not mean that you are stuck with these fatty deposits for the rest of your life. One of the options that you may consider is liposuction. This procedure has been able to help thousands of individuals to remove unwanted fat.
Liposuction is a pretty simple process. It is a technique that surgeons use to remove excess fat from the body and improve the body’s contour. The most common areas that are treated are the thighs, buttocks, love handles and the abdominal area. Men make up about 15 to 25 percent of liposuction patients. It is most common for men to receive liposuction treatment in their abdomen, love handles, breasts and chin and neck area.
Who Are Good Candidates for Liposuction?
First, a good candidate for liposuction has a thorough grasp on what this surgery can actually do for them. Even though it has been able to help a lot of people get rid of stubborn fatty deposits on their body, they will still have the same body as they had before and people will still treat them the same. It should not be done because another person is pressuring you to do so.
Second, a good candidate for liposuction is an individual who has relatively good health. Our physicians will examine your medical history before the procedure to be sure that you do not have any medical conditions that would disqualify you from being a good liposuction candidate.
Liposuction is a great option for individuals who exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, but who are not able to get rid of stubborn fatty deposits on their own. It is important for individuals to enjoy a healthy lifestyle after treatment to maintain the results.
