Q:What Liposuction/Liposelection® technique is the best? Tumescence, ultrasound or power assisted?
A:Before defining which Liposuction/Liposelection® technique is best for you, your doctor must look at your overall health, skin quality, body mass, estimated volume of fat to be removed and number of sites to be treated. This is easily determined at your consultation.
Q:Who is not a good candidate for Liposuction/Liposelection®?
A:Candidates with a history of poor healing and serious complications brought about by conditions such as lupus, diabetes, chronic blood or heart
disease should not have this procedure. Older patients have less elasticity in their skin—their results will not be as favorable as someone younger
with good skin tone.
Q:Can my dermatologist do Liposuction/Liposelection® on me?
A:A dermatologist can perform Liposuction/Liposelection® if they have completed specialized training in Liposuction and if the procedure is of
limited scope. Facial plastic surgeons are well suited to do Liposuction if the case involves only face and neck. A board certified plastic surgeon
is the only medical professional who you should consider for any area of you face, breast or body but particularly if Liposuction/Liposelection® is
combined with other surgical procedures.
Q:Can Liposuction/Liposelection® give me a 6 pack?
A:No. Liposuction/Liposelection® does not tighten skin, it sculpts the body. A 6 pack is muscle, and only exercise will help achieve this
Q:Is it true that Liposuction/Liposelection® can help cellulite?
A:No. In fact, it can make it worse. Cellulite is not fat.
Q:Will my fat come back, or is Liposuction/Liposelection® permanent?
A:Not all fat cells removed, so if the patient gains a lot of weight, the treated areas will get larger. It is very important to commit to a
regimen of healthy diet and exercise to maintain and maximize your results.
