How Liposuction Can Help You Achieve Your Ideal Body Shape

If you’re considering a liposuction treatment but are still undecided, here are 4 reasons to opt for this highly effective cosmetic procedure.


Liposuction is a highly requested body contouring procedure, designed to remove excess and stubborn fat from the body. Contrary to popular opinion, it is not a weight loss surgery and is often recommended for patients who are within 10 pounds of their ideal body weight.

Liposuction can be used to:

  • Improve the shape of your body
  • Remove stubborn pockets of fat from areas such as the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, back, and arms
  • Address specific problem areas such as back rolls, love handles, and saddlebags
  • Enhance your overall health and well-being
  • Restore youthfulness to an ageing face

Liposuction vs Exercise & Diet: When To Opt For Cosmetic Surgery

One of the most common myths about liposuction is that it is a weight loss surgery and that it can achieve the same results as traditional weight loss methods of diet and exercise. However, before considering this cosmetic treatment, it’s important to remember that liposuction is a body contouring treatment.

Body contouring treatments are not meant as weight loss alternatives and are recommended for patients who are within 10 pounds of their ideal weight.

Liposuction is for Subcutaneous Fat

The best weight loss results are achieved through healthy choices such as a balanced diet and regular exercise. For patients suffering from significant weight difficulties, plastic surgeries such as abdominoplasty may be recommended.

Visceral Fat vs Subcutaneous Fat: How to Know if Liposuction Is Right For You

Before deciding whether or not liposuction is right for you, you must understand the difference between visceral and subcutaneous fat. Following a healthy diet and exercise regimen are great ways to get rid of visceral fat - the fat that is stored around your internal organs - and can cause health problems such as diabetes. 

On the other hand, subcutaneous fat is notoriously stubborn and resistant to exercise.

This includes:

  • Saddlebags
  • Love handles
  • Stomach and back rolls
  • Bulges on the upper arms, thighs, back, and chin

  If you are within 10 pounds of your ideal weight but still struggle with stubborn pockets of fat, then liposuction can improve your body shape by effectively targeting and removing these areas of subcutaneous fat.

4 Reasons to Consider Liposuction

Rather than replacing the need for a healthy lifestyle, liposuction compliments your weight loss efforts by taking over where diet and exercise fall short.

If one or more of the following apply to you, then liposuction may be something you may want to consider: 

  1. You have stubborn fat deposits that won’t respond to diet or exercise. Liposuction is excellent for reducing unwanted and stubborn fatty areas and creating a beautifully natural contour to the body.

  2. Certain areas of your body are out of proportion with the rest of your figure. Liposuction can reduce excess fat in one area of your body, bringing it into better balance with your natural figure.

  3. You have good skin elasticity. For the best possible results, your skin should be elastic enough to contract to the body’s new contours.

  4. You are within the range of your desired weight. Liposuction is best for reducing localized fat deposits and the best candidates are those who are physically healthy and of average, or slightly above average, weight.
