Liposuction patients should be 'within reach of ideal weight'

An expert has reiterated that the ideal candidates for liposuction, or fat removal surgery, are those who are close to or at their ideal weight.Plastic surgeons at the Marietta Plastic Surgery clinic in America said that the operation ‘can be combined with procedures such as a body lift or tummy tuck following significant weight loss, but should not be seen as an alternative to a healthy diet and exercise’.They added that, ‘some fat will not respond to diet and exercise, making liposuction a wonderful choice for people who are having trouble losing those last few pounds’, and insisted that those looking to have liposuction surgery should be in good health. As well as the advice given on preparations for the procedure, the surgeons emphasised the importance of understanding the recovery time and process, as well as the importance of doing careful research into the surgeon and clinic.
