The term “Liposuction” has been coined as a misconception. When we think of this surgical procedure, we automatically think that any individual that is severely overweight or morbidly obese are the perfect, ideal candidates, however, this could not be further from the truth.
To begin, what exactly is liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure that is used on individuals who have small “problem areas” of fat that do not budge with regular diet and exercise. This technique helps remove stubborn body fat from select areas to help shape and contour the body resulting in a more attractive physique as you will be thinner and leaner in your overall appearance.
Being the single most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States, more and more individuals are turning to liposuction as a solution to their stagnant, unwanted body fat. The liposuction technique can help remove stubborn body fat from the stomach, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, buttocks, chin, cheeks, neck, upper arm region, and the knees. Not only does this procedure help remove body fat that doesn’t respond to regular or vigorous diet and exercise, it also ensures that there will be no return of fat in those treated areas.
Many people believe that any individual with excessive body fat or is extremely overweight is the perfect candidate for liposuction, however this is a common misconception that has been associated with the procedure for quite some time.
In this video, Dr. Steinbrech breaks down who the ideal candidate is for a liposuction procedure.
First, we learn that this procedure is commonly confused as a generalized weight loss solution which is categorically untrue. Dr. Steinbrech states that if an individual is grossly overweight or obese, somewhere between 30+ lbs. overweight, than he advises the patient to go on a diet. These individuals are not ideal candidates for liposuction because they are not in good standing health physically.
Dr. Steinbrech then educates us on who the ideal candidates for liposuction are which are individuals over the age of 18, regularly go to the gym to incorporate exercise into their daily routine, watches his or her own body weight, is within 25 lbs. of their ideal weight, and has small, stubborn areas that they wish to be removed.
It is extremely important that all individuals that are considering this procedure keep in mind that this procedure is not a weight loss solution and will not eliminate existing stretch marks or cellulite. This procedure is meant to remove only small, localized concentrations of fatty deposits.
