Am I a good candidate for Liposuction?
In general, to be a good candidate for Liposuction, you would need to be in good health, have realistic expectations of how much fat you want removed from your body and have one or more areas where fat has accumulated. You should also be close to your desired weight and have skin that does not sag and has good elasticity. Liposuction can give you very substantial improvements, but you should have a realistic outlook that results may not make you look perfect.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon in order to remove excess fat from certain area's of an individuals body. The procedure involves the use of a cannula and a vacuum pump. The surgeon will insert a needle found on the end of the machine into where the excess fat is located. The machine is moved back and forth in order to break up the fat. Once the fat has been broken up, it will then be removed from your body.
How much does Liposuction cost?
The cost of Liposuction varies depending on where you go. At Village Pointe Aesthetic Surgery, Liposuction starts at about $3,200 and goes up depending on the number of areas you want done. This price includes the facility, anesthesia and the physicians fees. It would not cover medications such as antibiotics or pain medications if complications did arise. Cosmetic consultations are free of charge.
Is Liposuction a reasonable treatment for obesity?
No. Nor is it a cure or treatment for people with Diabetes. It is merely an effective way to get rid of stubborn fat in various places on one's body. One of our liposuction surgeons would be able to tell you if you would be a candidate.
Does Liposuction remove cellulite?
No, unfortunately not. Our physicians can go over the procedure and options for you. Our cosmetic consultations are free.
