Signs You’re a Candidate for Liposuction
1. You’re within close range of your ideal weight.
Liposuction shouldn’t be seen as a solution for weight loss, which is why we recommend all candidates be within 30% range of their ideal weight. If too much fat is removed via liposuction, it can create sagging skin issues, so a skin removal procedure may be indicated at the same time.
2. You have good skin tone and thickness.
Your skin should be able to “bounce back” from liposuction surgery. If you have poor skin quality meaning it has lost elastin and thickness, it’s likely that your skin will sag post-surgery.
On that note, if you do have poor skin tone, you could still be a good candidate. It just means you’ll need to combine your liposuction surgery with a skin-tightening or resection procedure.
