Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction Tampa


Man-smileLiposuction can be done safely and effectively in patients who are generally healthy. Age of patients can vary from 18 to 80 depending on the extent of treatment. Since liposuction is about looking better through fat removal it is important to have a consultation with a doctor, not just a medical consultant. The extent of improvement often times depends on how much fat can be removed. However, sometimes small unwanted contours can be a big problem also. Achieving proper proportions and a smooth flowing contour is the key to helping a patient look better. Because of all these factors, it is hard if not impossible to tell a patient what they can expect or if they are a good candidate over phone.

At Art Lipo, Dr. Su feels strongly about personally performing each consultation. First, he carefully pinched the fat area to determine its thickness and to feel the muscle contour beneath. Once this is determined, he can show a patient in front of a mirror, just how much slimmer and nicer their contour will be finished.

Just as important, he will determine the quality of the skin’s elasticity so that any potential skin looseness following the surgery can be described to the patient. After being given the anticipated improvements and potential for skin looseness, a patient can then decide if this would meet their expectations It is shocking to hear that at some liposuction offices the doctor does not even touch the patient during the consultation or even see the patient prior to booking a surgery.

It is important for a doctor to always be conservative when creating expectations and not oversell something that they cannot reliably deliver. Dr. Su follows this philosophy, and will be quick to dissuade a patient from having surgery if their expectations cannot be met.
