4 Tips for Natural-Looking Liposuction Results

Beautiful, sexy athleteA natural, non-surgical look is one of my primary objectives for any procedure I perform. If you’re hoping to get the most beautiful results from a liposuction procedure, consider these four tips for achieving a natural look.

1. Ensure You’re a Good Candidate┬áThe best candidates for liposuction are already at a healthy weight, lead a fairly active lifestyle, and are hoping to target specific problem areas, not achieve overall weight loss. If you’ve done the hard work required to eat right and stay in shape, but still have a few lingering trouble spots, lipo can help you achieve beautifully proportioned, natural-looking contours.

2. Have Realistic Expectations Because the results of your liposuction procedure depend on factors such as your skin’s elasticity, it’s important to have realistic expectations about its potential. I’ll meet with you prior to your appointment to assess your candidacy for the procedure and answer specific questions regarding the look we can hope to achieve. This way, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect, which in turn leads to greater satisfaction with your results.

3. Choose an Experienced Surgeon
Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive liposuction experience is the best way to ensure a good outcome. Complications such as lumpiness, depressions, and irregular contouring are less likely if a surgeon has been performing liposuction for many years.

4. Continue Practicing Healthy Habits
While liposuction permanently removes fat cells from the treatment area, maintaining your results long-term requires you to stay on top of your diet and exercise routines. You can still gain weight in other areas after lipo, so keep up the healthy habits to preserve your slim new contours for many years to come.
