4 Dos and Don’ts of Getting Liposuction

Liposuction is a tried-and-true method for targeting stubborn body fat to give the body a slimmer silhouette and more attractive contours. Here are some dos and don’ts you need to know before considering body contouring surgery with liposuction.

DO Your Research and Choose the Right Surgeon

Choosing the right plastic surgeon will directly impact the quality of your lipo results. Do your research and choose a plastic surgeon who is board-certified and highly experienced in performing liposuction.

Great results with liposuction require a high degree of surgical skill, as well as an artistic eye for the contours of the body.

DON’T Be Naive about the Healing Process

Liposuction is surgery and will require time to heal. Be prepared for the necessary downtime and make arrangements with friends, family and coworkers to ensure all you have to focus on is rest and recovery.

DO Avoid Weight Gain after Liposuction

Liposuction results are not permanent. In order to maintain your slimmer shape after liposuction, it’s incredibly important to commit to healthy lifestyle habits and avoid future weight gain. Subsequent fluctuations in weight can “undo” your lipo results.

DON’T Have Unrealistic Expectations

There are many common myths about liposuction, and it’s important you know the facts and have realistic expectations to avoid being disappointed. Liposuction cannot improve loose skin or remove cellulite, and only addresses subcutaneous fat near the skin’s surface. Visceral fat, the deeper fat in the body, is beyond the reach of liposuction and can only be lost with diet and exercise.
