About Liposuction Candidates
The best candidate for a liposuction procedure is someone in good health, who has fat in problem areas that cannot easily be lost with diet and exercise.
It is very important to note that liposuction only removes small and localized fat. If you expect to have a drastic change in your appearance, you may be disappointed. The perfect candidate for this procedure is a person with a healthy weight and who is interested only in contouring their body.
