Liposuction Fort Worth

Everyone is born with natural predispositions, be it a skill that comes naturally or sensitivity to the sun. Another area in which we are predisposed is our body types and shapes. Each of our bodies hold on to and store fat in different places. For some people it is in the mid-section, for others it is in the arms or thighs, and some fill out in the chest or hips. For wherever this occurs in your body, it may not matter how well you eat or how consistently you work out, you may always have a little extra in that specific spot. For these areas often the best way to decrease those stubborn little fat cells is through liposuction.

Liposuction is a procedure to remove excess fat by sucking it out through a long, skinny tube called a cannula. This process is great for specific trouble areas and is not intended as a weight loss solution. In fact, ideal patients are in good mental and physical form. They should also have realistic expectations for the procedure and it’s potential results. For patients with a more serious weight problem that are looking for a weight loss solution, diet and exercise and, in some instances, bariatric surgery are options for a total body fat loss result. After losing a substantial amount of weight through diet and exercise and/or bariatric surgery, an individual may be left with excess, sagging skin and pockets of stubborn fat. In these instances, once the individual has achieved and maintained a healthy weight for several months, Body Contouring procedures such a an Arm Lift, Thigh Lift or Tummy Tuck may be performed to eliminate the excess, sagging skin and may be done in conjunction with a Liposuction procedure.

Liposuction can be a wonderful procedure for both men and women of varying ages to achieve the body proportion, balance and harmony that they desire, as well as increase body confidence. It should still be understood, however, that Liposuction is a serious surgical procedure and as such there are risks to consider. The most important step in considering a Liposuction procedure is the questions of who will be performing it. Choosing a well educated, trained, certified, and experienced Plastic Surgeon will help to improve your odds of a safe and successful outcome. These days it is easier than every to research potential plastic surgeons and find out their training background and their accreditation status. Another helpful tool and looking at their previous patients before and after photos and reading patient testimonials.

Once you feel ready to speak to a plastic surgeon, you’ll want to call and schedule a consultation. During that time the plastic surgeon will ask you about your goals and concerns, they will examine you and also ask about your medical history. The more information you can provide them the better. If it is decided that you are a good candidate for the procedure, your plastic surgeon will help to create a procedure plan with you to achieve the results you desire.
