There’s no shortage of doctors and med spas offering liposuction services that claim they’ll give you the smooth and sexy silhouette you’ve always wanted. It is important to do your research and choose a skilled and experienced surgeon to ensure you’ll be truly satisfied with your new look.
At your first consultation appointment, a good surgeon will help you determine if you’re actually a good candidate for lipo. Patients should be wary of
- surgeons who seem make promises of extreme weight loss or other unrealistic claims that aren’t the true goal of the procedure.
Less Bruising/Tissue Trauma
The best lipo surgeons know how to get excellent results with the least amount of trauma to the body. Your surgeon’s technique will directly affect the amount of bruising and swelling after your surgery, resulting in a more comfortable recovery period. Additionally, patients should understand that performing lipo properly requires an artistic touch as much as it requires medical skill. An experienced surgeon will know exactly how to meticulously sculpt the body to give you the best liposuction results.
Improved Patient Safety
Although lipo is an outpatient procedure and is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries, it is still surgery. When performed improperly, it can not only produce uneven results but could compromise patient safety. Patients should only trust their bodies to competent, accredited surgeons for lipo or any other medical procedure.
Better Overall Patient Experience
“It takes a village” is a saying that also applies to your liposuction experience. Experienced, qualified surgeons strive to ensure that every aspect of
their practice—from support staff to the ambience of their office—works in unison to make you enjoy the best possible experience as well as the best liposuction results.
