Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Orlando, Winter Park and Nearby Areas of Central Florida

At The Bougainvillea Clinique in Orlando, Florida, Dr. Jeffrey Hartog and his trained staff frequently meet with women and men who are somehow dissatisfied with their appearance. One of the most common complaints is stubborn body fat, particularly in the abdomen, face, jowls, neck, arms and thighs. Despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, fat in these areas can sometimes be difficult to reduce or eliminate.

Most often, people schedule a private consultation with Dr. Hartog to discuss liposuction as a method for removing unwanted fat and creating more pleasing contours.

Who Can and Who Shouldn't Have Liposuction

The best candidates for liposuction are:

  • Physically healthy
  • Emotionally healthy
  • Non-smokers
  • Of normal weight within 25 lbs.
  • Realistic about their surgical outcome
  • Positive in their outlook
  • Leading active lifestyles
  • Feeling 'held back' due to low self-confidence about body issues

Individuals who are more than 25 pounds overweight, who have significant medical issues, smoke, or are psychologically unstable would be considered poor liposuction candidates.

Liposuction Options

Today's advanced liposuction procedures and techniques offer several options:

Even heavier people considered poor candidates for liposuction can now lose inches, because Dr. Hartog uses advanced liposuction techniques such as tumescent, superwet, ultrasound (UAL) and syringe liposuction. He tailors the procedure to the patient for better results and a faster, less painful recovery period.
