One of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in America, liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat from areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. If you are thinking of undergoing an Orlando liposuction, you probably have some questions. Here are some of the Frequently Asked Questions, along with the answers, that we’ve encountered at Pope Plastic Surgery.
What areas of the body are good for liposuction? When most people think of liposuction, they envision it being done to the abdomen, but there are many more areas that could benefit from the procedure. Body areas such as the waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, neck upper arms or even cheeks can benefit from liposuction.
How do I know if I’m a good candidate? If you’re healthy and realistic with your expectations, you may be a good candidate. Contact a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. George H. Pope, to see if you qualify for this procedure.
How invasive is the procedure? Medically speaking, liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure.
Will I lose weight after the liposuction procedure? It is a commonly held myth that liposuction results in weight loss. The truth is, liposuction is not meant to reduce your weight. Rather, it’s a procedure to reshape and contour the body.
Should I wait until I’m finished having children to get liposuction? You don’t have to wait until you’ve had children to get liposuction. Pregnancy does not permanently alter the results of the procedure, losing the baby weight will return your body to its liposuction improved state.
If you eat right, stay active and still aren’t achieving the effect you desire, liposuction may be an option for you. If you’re interested in learning more about an Orlando liposuction procedure, contact Dr. George Pope and the team at Pope Plastic Surgery today for a consultation.
