Deciding to undergo plastic surgery is never an easy decision. With so many different procedures out there, it’s hard to know which one is right for you based on your goals. We want to make this process a little easier for you. Here are five signs liposuction may be the procedure you’ve been looking for.
1. You’re Close to Your Goal Weight, But Can’t Quite Get There
Losing weight isn’t as easy as all those commercials and advertisements make it out to be. Even with following a balanced diet, it’s not guaranteed you’ll be able to lose all the weight and pockets of fat that bother you. Liposuction is the perfect supplement to help you achieve your perfect body. Patients within 30 pounds of their ultimate weight goal can use liposuction as a final step to get the body they deserve.
2. You’ve Exhausted All Other Options
The biggest thing to understand about liposuction is that it’s not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, rather it’s a complement to diet and exercise. The ideal candidate for liposuction maintains a balanced, healthy diet and exercises regularly, but still has pockets of stubborn fat that just won’t melt away. If you’re on the last leg of your weight loss journey and can’t quite reach the finish line alone, liposuction is a great option for you.
3. You Have Realistic Expectations
It’s easy to get carried away with what the wonders of plastic surgery can do for your body. The media is oversaturated with seemingly perfect celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, so it’s natural to hope your procedure can give you that celebrity bod. Make sure you have realistic expectations as to how liposuction can help you. If you hope it makes you look like you lost 50 pounds overnight, you may want to reconsider.
4. You Have Time to Recover
One of the biggest factors to consider when undergoing any procedure is making sure you can take the time off of work to fully recover. What many people may not realize is it can take up to two weeks to recover from your liposuction procedure enough to return to work. You may also experience bruising, swelling and tenderness in your treated area for several weeks following your procedure.
5. It Fits Into Your Finances
Like any other cosmetic procedure, liposuction can get a little pricey. The best way to make sure you can afford liposuction is to talk to your doctor about the estimated cost of your procedure and ask about different monthly specials or financing options they offer. Odds are, there are going to be options to make your procedure more affordable so you can finally get the body you deserve.
