Liposuction Myths Debunked

Myths about LIPOSUCTION and new research supporting Tummy Tuck procedures as a way to avoid weight gain after weight loss are covered in this month’s ASPS Plastic Surgery update:

Liposuction is best suited to individuals, both men and women, who have achieved their optimal level of physical fitness, who are as close as possible to their ideal or a stable weight, and who have done all they can do to rid themselves of any residual fat deposits on their own.

Liposuction is NEVER a substitute for a healthy lifestyle or weight loss.  It is for body contouring only!  Many of my patients are personal trainers, extremely fit women and men, and Moms who wish to address persistent areas of body fat – part of their “Mommy Makeover” procedure!
