Regardless of the area of the body, liposuction candidates have localised fat deposits, and they are resistant to even the most vigorous exercise program or diet. These fat deposits can occur in the abdomen, arms, thighs, calves, buttocks – even the face and neck. Lipo can be used to treat them all.
The best candidates for lipo should have a stable weight, and should have lost the weight prior to the procedure. Lipo is permanent as long as weight remains stable. Candidates should be:
One of the other keys to being a good candidate for liposuction is to have firm, elastic skin. To achieve ideal results, the skin must shrink after the procedure. As we age, we lose skin elasticity, which can compromise the results of the procedure. However, if the skin quality remains elastic, age is no barrier to having liposuction.
Using lipo to remove fat from specific areas of the body that haven’t responded to exercise and diet is a safe and effective practice. Areas of the body that respond to liposuction include:
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction is to have a consultation with one of our surgeons.
Who is not a liposuction candidate?
Patients who are:
Liposuction cannot serve as a treatment for obesity. There is no substitute for diet and exercise, but once the weight loss is complete, lipo can reshape and sculpt the body when exercise simply won’t help. Liposuction is not an effective method for treating cellulite, and doesn’t help to treat loose, sagging skin. Other procedures are available to address those specific problem areas.
There are many types of liposuction, and the type of procedure used depends on your specific problem areas and the judgment of your surgeon. The different types of lipo include:
While liposuction can remove pockets of fat in the abdominal area, it can’t be used to address sagging, loose skin. That’s why some patients choose to have a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, at the same time as lipo.
Candidates for a tummy tuck usually suffer from loose skin on the abdomen due to age, pregnancy or significant weight loss. An incision is made just above the pubic hairline, and excess skin and fat are removed. The abdominal skin is then pulled down tight, sutured to the incision area and bandages are applied. Because of the bruising and swelling, the recovery is longer than with liposuction alone.
You can discuss the procedure with your surgeon during your consultation, as well as other procedures that he might recommend.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
