ATLANTA, GA, February 02, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The common body sculpting procedure liposuction can be used to treat numerous areas of the body. For women, liposuction is used to treat areas including:
- Outer and inner thighs
- Hips and waist
- Neck and face

- Neck and face
Of course, any area of your body that has excess deposits of fat and tissue can be treated to give you a firmer, more defined, attractive frame. Your board-certified* plastic surgeon will best be able to help you determine what parts of your body will benefit most from this procedure.
Ideal Liposuction Candidates
While liposuction can be effectively used to remove excess fat and tissue from almost every area of your body, it is important to understand what it can and cannot do. Liposuction can be safely used to remove up to ten pounds of fat from targeted areas of your body. Liposuction cannot help you lose weight and should not be used as a method of weight loss. It 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.
Ideal candidates for liposuction should be within reach of their ideal weight. 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.
To be a candidate for liposuction you should be in generally good health. Be prepared to bring your medical history to your plastic surgeon for careful examination. You should also be prepared for the recovery time and fully aware of potential risks and complications before committing to this procedure. Having your liposuction performed by a board-certified* plastic surgeon in a certified surgical center can reduce your risk for complications, but there is never a guarantee. Recovery from liposuction can take several weeks during which you may require adult assistance. Be prepared to have a friend or family member help you during your initial recovery phase.
Liposuction is a proven way to reduce excess fat and achieve a body you are proud to show off. Working with an experienced plastic surgeon, you can determine if this procedure is the best decision for your body.
