You may be asking if you are a good candidate for liposuction. There is no standard answer for that. During your consultation your specific needs will be assessed and to make sure you are healthy enough for the surgery. You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you have a fat deposit that is out of proportion from the rest of your body and will not go away with dieting or exercising. You also want to consider skin elasticity. You wont want a lot of excess skin in the area because this procedure removes fat and not extra skin.
Tumescent liposuction is one of the most common techniques used today. Fist, the surgeon will administer a tumescent injection (which contains a local anesthetic, epinephrine, and a saline solution). This will help alleviate the risk of general anesthesia. The fat will then be suctioned out after a volume of the solution exceeds that of the fat. This method is often considered the "traditional" method of liposuction.
Another method of liposuction would be Ultra-sound assisted (also called Vaser LipoSelection). A tube is used to send ultrasonic waves into the fat cells. This will melt the fat cells prior to suction. This procedure often takes longer than the "traditional" way of liposuction but it often leads to a faster and less painful recovery. This treatment is only offered by a select number of surgeons in the United States.
Lasers may also be used for liposuction. There are currently two techniques available for laser liposuction. These procedures are similar because they both offer fat emulsification, preservation of delicate tissue, and skin firming. The difference between the procedures would be that the "Cool Touch laser" will tighten the skin without burning it.
There are so many different types of liposuction available. Only a few of these procedures are medically proven to give good results. Many companies often advertise procedures that seem way to good to be true. Most of the time these procedures are. It's important to consult with a licensed medical professional before undergoing any procedure. After choosing the right medically professional, it is possible to have beautiful results with liposuction. This procedure will give you a more defined look and greater outlook on your life.
