When diet and exercise aren’t giving you the body you want, liposuction in Sacramento from Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center could be the answer. Liposuction addresses fat deposits in problem areas that results from the skin stretching because of pregnancy or weight loss.
The technician inserts a cannula to break up and remove the excess fat. However, this procedure may not be right for everyone. Learn if you are a candidate for this treatment.
You Have Realistic Expectations
Liposuction can reduce fat and reshape the body without large incisions, but it is not a weight loss program, and it does not address loose skin or cellulite. Less fat does not equal no fat, so you still have to maintain the results with diet and exercise.
If you gain weight following the treatment, it will be in an untreated area. This weight gain is commonly visceral fat that accumulates around the organs, which increases diabetes and heart disease risk. You should also be doing this for yourself and not to please someone else or to achieve an unrealistic body image.
You Are an Ideal Weight with Localized Fat
You don’t have to be a certain weight to get liposuction in Sacramento, but many doctors prefer candidates within 30% of their ideal body weight, and not more than 25 to 30 pounds over that weight. Most doctors won’t do the procedure on anyone with more than 30% body mass.
If you are extremely overweight, it will not solve the problem. You may be advised to lose weight before the procedure or seek alternatives. You should also be through dieting, because remaining at a steady weight helps the doctor better identify the problem areas.
You Are in Good Health with Good Skin Elasticity
Since this treatment requires the use of anesthesia, you should be in good overall health to get the best results and speed healing. This means diabetes, heart disease, poor blood circulation, lung disease, or certain drug allergies may disqualify you. If you smoke, you may be advised to stop smoking several weeks before the procedure.
Candidates need good skin elasticity to help adjust to the new contours. Good skin has enough collagen to keep it supple and taut. Otherwise, lax skin may cause more loose skin after the treatment and cause a slight ripple.
