Knowing Whether You’re Fit for a Liposuction
Liposuction is a great way to tackle areas of unwanted fat on your body. Done by the right doctor, liposuction is a safe procedure concentrated on reducing excess fat, including the Quarantine 15. Keep reading to find out if you’re a good candidate.
1) You are healthy enough for elective surgery
You might believe you’re in great health but it’s important to get the right tests before scheduling your liposuction. We must make sure you’re very healthy before beginning the procedure, making sure everything will go smoothly and safe. Schedule an appointment with your primary care physician to get a physical exam and determine if this is the right time for liposuction!
2) You are not pregnant or breastfeeding
Even if you’re eager to let go of excess baby weight, it’s not recommended to go through liposuction while breastfeeding. This is because of the physical rest you must undergo post-procedure, which could prevent your breastfeeding routine. Once your little one is all set up with bottles, so are you for your procedure!
3) You have localized areas of excess fat
No, Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure! You must actually have areas with excess fat in order to go through liposuction, such as abdomen, hips, or thighs. Even though it does result in losing a few extra pounds, the main goal is not to get thinner, but to remove unhealthy areas of fat.
4) You are conscious of procedure goals
Yes, you will have excess fat removed from your body but be realistic about expectations post-op. If you have too much excess fat, it won’t all go away all at once. Your doctor will determine an appropriate amount to keep the procedure safe and you may need to schedule another later on if you want more fat removed. As always, safety first!
