Liposuction is the second most popular plastic surgery procedure in the US. With that popularity comes a lot of misconceptions about what liposuction is and what it can do for you. Being able to separate the truth for the myth can help you decide if it is the right procedure to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
Myth: Liposuction Is Weight Loss Surgery
Liposuction is actually a body contouring procedure that can help you rid the body of small pockets of stubborn fat deposits. It is not intended for weight loss. You should be at or near your ideal weight before undergoing liposuction.
Myth: Liposuction Is Only for Women
Liposuction is commonly requested by our male patients, especially to contour the abdominal area and chest for a more firm, sculpted appearance.
Myth: Liposuction Will Firm Up Your Abs
While liposuction can remove fat from the abdominal area and reveal your abdominal muscles, it will not tone your abs. If your abdominal area is loose and sagging from weight loss or pregnancy, a tummy tuck may be the right plastic surgery procedure to achieve your desired goals.
