Is Liposuction a Weight Loss Procedure?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


There are a number of misconceptions that Denver-area patients often have about liposuction. One of the most prominent is that the procedure helps patients who are dramatically overweight lose a great deal of weight very quickly.

In reality, liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It’s only appropriate for patients who are at or near their ideal bodyweight.

An ideal candidate for liposuction is someone who has recently lost a great deal of weight through traditional diet and exercise but still has some stubborn deposits of fat. In these circumstances, the Denver plastic surgeons at Grossman Plastic Surgery will be able to use liposuction to contour your body in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

We are committed to making sure our patients are safe throughout their time with us. Above all else, that means ensuring you only undergo a procedure that is right for you. We will thoroughly examine your current state of health to determine if liposuction is appropriate for your needs.

We’ll answer all of your liposuction questions and help you understand the particulars of the procedure before we move ahead with any course of treatment.
