Am I a good liposuction candidate?
The ideal liposuction candidate in Vero Beach, Port St. Lucie and other communities near Vero Beach is someone who has localized areas of fatty deposits but is not obese. Liposuction is not a weight loss operation; it is a body sculpting procedure. Areas that are resistant to weight loss and are seemingly genetically predisposed to holding on to fat, such as the saddlebag or hip regions, are ideally suited for liposuction. The main limitation of liposuction is suboptimal skin quality. If your skin is too lax either from previous obesity, pregnancy, or simply aging of the tissues, it may be left hanging loose after the underlying fat is removed. Certain areas are more amenable to liposuction than others. The best way to determine where liposuction will work for you is to see Dr. Frazier who is a distinguished graduate of Yale University School of Medicine and is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed on both men and women in the United States. When liposuction is performed on the appropriate patient, by a properly qualified liposuction expert like Dr. Frazier, in an accredited operating facility, this procedure can produce profound body sculpting results with minimal scarring and an easy recovery.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure which reduces unwanted fatty deposits in various areas of the body including the abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, hips, flanks ("love handles"), back, neck, and arms. This body contouring procedure can help give a desired shape, whether it's a more tapered waist, thinner thighs, contoured neck and chin, or flatter abdomen. It is also helpful in men with unwanted breast tissue or "love handles". Generally, liposuction works best for patients without significant skin excess, who have localized deposits of unwanted fat.
