Is My Body the Right Type for Liposuction?

If you’re considering liposuction for the first time, then you might be wondering whether you’ve got the right body shape. The answer to that question depends on a variety of personal factors. At NuBody Concepts, we specialize in helping men and women look and feel their best, but some things are beyond our control. We find that going into body enhancement procedures with the right mindset can be more important than having a certain body type.

Before you meet with us for a confidential consultation, consider the following factors for a successful liposuction.

Your Driving Motivation for Liposuction

Why do you want liposuction? If you’re looking for a quick fix to combat weight gain, then liposuction may not work for you. Contrary to popular belief, getting rid of excess fat doesn’t solve the underlying problem of weight gain. In order for a successful liposuction with lasting results, you need a better motivator than simply losing weight. Perhaps you want to attain your pre-baby body or get in shape for a new athletic goal this year. There are medical reasons to lose weight and shed unwanted fat as well.

Your Overall Self-Image

Most people want to change a thing or two about their bodies.  But if your expectations are too high about what liposuction can do for you, then the procedure won’t be successful in the long run.

Liposuction is a great way to shed unwanted fatty areas, such as bulges around your bra line, muffin tops and love handles. However, you need a healthy, positive self-image to really benefit from this procedure. Confident, happy people who just need an extra hand getting rid of stubborn fat are preferred candidates because we can address physical symptoms, not emotional ones.

Before you pursue any body enhancement procedure, talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits. She can assess your aptitude for liposuction, gauge your mental state and make sure that you’re ready before undergoing a body-altering procedure.

A Healthy Starting Point

Again, liposuction is not an effective weight loss solution. However, it can complement your existing weight loss efforts. In fact, liposuction works best when you’re already a healthy weight, which may come as a surprise. Starting from a healthy basis yields much better results. If you’ve been eating well, exercising and taking care of yourself, then liposuction may be right for you.

Successful liposuction isn’t determined by body type, although being in good shape will help. Mainly we look for candidates who wish to rid their bodies of unwanted fat that can’t be eliminated through regular diet and exercise. We welcome men and women to experience the difference that a new body can make.
