Liposuction is an excellent body contouring procedure for many patients. It can help you tone your trouble areas and give you the body shape you desire. However, whether it is the best body contouring procedure depends on your needs. This technique may be best for those with good skin elasticity who are prepared for surgery. On the other hand, if you are not a good candidate for traditional liposuction, you may need a non-surgical body contouring technique like CoolSculpting®
or a minimally invasive liposuction technique like Smartlipo™
. Likewise, if you have excess stretched skin, liposuction may not be best for you. You would benefit more from a body lift
, tummy tuck
, arm lift
, or other body contouring surgery that offers both skin and fat removal.
