Why You’re Not A Ideal Candidate For Liposuction If You Are Obese

by | Nov 23, 2022 | Laser Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. The procedure involves removing stubborn fat from specific areas and improving body contour. Plastic surgeons in Manhattan use advanced, minimally invasive, laser-assisted platforms like Smartlipo Triplex to perform the procedure. However, to be a good candidate for liposuction in Manhattan, you must be at or close to your ideal weight.

Liposuction removes excess fat from different areas of the body such as the abdominal area, hips, buttocks, thighs, neck, arms, back, chest, inner knees, chin, cheeks, ankles, and calves. To obtain optimal outcomes, the candidate should have a BMI of 30 before liposuction. Though the treatment removes stubborn fat cells from the different areas of the body, it is not a weight loss procedure. Rather, the procedure contours the body, improves definition, and enhances your overall appearance. For the best results, you should be at your ideal weight before the treatment. Liposuction is not recommended for people who are obese. Let’s see why.

The amount of fat that can be removed via liposuction depends on factors such as your overall health, ability to handle the recovery stage and BMI (Body Mass Index). As BMI differs from person to person, there is no particular amount of fat that can removed from a patient’s body. The recommendation is not to have more than 5 liters of fat removed if liposuction is done as an outpatient procedure. This means that the maximum amount of fat that can be safely removed from the candidate’s body is about 10 pounds. On average, most people will have 2 to 4 liters of fat removed during liposuction (from 5 to 8 pounds).

Liposuction is not the appropriate for obese or overweight patients as they wouldn’t get the outcome that they expect. If too much of fat is removed, it can lead to seroma or fluid buildup, unsightly lumpiness, anesthesia-related reactions, infections drop in blood pressure, and so on.

Though liposuction cannot make a dramatic difference in people who are overweight, it can provide certain benefits:

  • Help them move around more comfortably than before.
  • Encourage them to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen
  • Improve their confidence level.

Experienced plastic surgeons in an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery center will evaluate patients’ anatomical consideration and goals and determine if they are good candidates for liposuction in NYC.
