A cosmetic surgery that takes fat out from “problem areas” on a person, a dermatologic or plastic surgeon can conduct this procedure on a person’s belly, hips, buttocks, arms, back, or even face. The surgery does come with its own risks, so individuals thinking about this as a weight loss option will need to be in good health, prior to the procedure, meaning they must fit the following criteria, which is:
A person needs to be within 30 percent of the ideal weight before undergoing the surgery
Must have firm and elastic skin
Those with health issues around blood flow, a weakened immune system, diabetes, or heart disease are not recommended to have liposuction. Additionally, be prepared for alcohol and diet restrictions prior to the operation.
