Is Liposuction For You? [Sponsored Article]

How Much Weight Can You Lose With Liposuction?

Sometimes eating well and sticking to an exercise routine isn't enough to achieve the slim silhouette you desire. If your clothes don't fit the way you'd like them to or there are specific areas you wish would respond better to diet and exercise, you don't have to live with that frustration. At Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center in Sacramento, CA, we help patients attain their aesthetic goals by performing effective procedures and treatments, including liposuction.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure that removes unwanted fat from stubborn areas of the body resistant to diet and exercise. During the procedure, the unwanted fat is broken up and removed.

When those fat cells are removed, they don't grow back. This is a great procedure for patients who want a more sculpted look in problem areas and an improvement in their appearance.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Adults who are generally healthy but experience pockets of stubborn fat that don't respond to diet and exercise can be good candidates for this procedure. Even people who appear to be at their ideal weight may struggle with the appearance of certain areas on their bodies and can benefit from liposuction.

While patients can experience size reduction, this is not a weight-loss procedure or treatment for obesity. This procedure and its results are best when the patient is at a stable weight with no big fluctuations anticipated. While the removed fat cells won't grow back, large weight gains could cause the remaining fat cells to grow bigger. Patients should not expect to lose a significant amount of weight, but they should expect to see cosmetic improvements and even go down a few sizes in certain areas.

Only your doctor can determine for certain if you're a good candidate for this procedure. Areas that are commonly targeted for treatment include the:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Inner knees
  • Hips
  • Flank or love handles
  • Upper arms
  • Inner or outer thighs
  • Hips
  • Neckline and under the chin

Fat Transfer

Your doctor may recommend a fat transfer  if you've expressed concern about hollowness in certain areas of your face, like the temples or cheeks. Fat can be taken from the area on your body where liposuction is being performed and transferred to these areas of your face. 

When fat is deposited into areas of the face that have lost volume, those areas regain their youthful plumpness. Your doctor can customize the treatment and restore multiple areas of lost volume at one time.
