Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
Getting rid of excess fat around the body can be difficult. This is especially true as we age because our metabolism begins to slow down as early as age 25. Even with consistent diet and exercise, some folks have trouble losing the fat deposits that accumulate over time. If this sounds like something you’ve experienced, you may have considered having liposuction surgery to eliminate those stubborn areas of fat.
At Avalon Lipo & Aesthetics, liposuction is the main procedure we perform at this practice and Dr. Reza Tirgari has extensive experience with various methods of this body contouring treatment. The types of liposuction Dr. Tirgari uses include:
- Laser Lipo
- Tumescent Lipo
Dr. Tirgari’s experience with these methods has made him one of the leading liposuction cosmetic surgeons in the San Diego area. By combining the three liposuction procedures into one, Dr. Tirgari can use the benefits from each method to ensure optimal results and an easier recovery for your liposuction procedure on nearly any area of the body with excess fat.
The most important thing to remember when considering liposuction surgery is that liposuction is not a weight loss solution. This treatment is not intended to help those who are overweight shed pounds but rather to help those who are at or near a healthy weight reduce or eliminate the stubborn pockets of fat in certain areas of the body.
Before committing to this procedure, there are health and lifestyle factors that may disqualify you from being a candidate. As with any cosmetic procedure, it’s vital that you’re honest and open about your health and lifestyle to ensure that the treatment will be a safe and effective means for you to get rid of unwanted fat.
Ideal candidates for liposuction include:
- Adults in good overall health
- Those who are within 30% of a healthy weight
- Those not suffering from any illness or disease
- Those who don’t suffer from blood clotting disorders
- Those with good muscle tone and firm, elastic skin
- Individuals who do not smoke or can quit for a period of time before and after
- Those who understand the procedure and have realistic expectations
During your consultation with Dr. Tirgari, he’ll go over each of these qualifications with you to make sure that you’re an ideal candidate for this procedure. At Avalon Lipo & Aesthetics, your safety is our number one priority and through a combination of using the latest advanced technology and methods, along with our-highly-trained staff, we work to help you look and feel your absolute best.
