Liposuction is used to improve and enhance the shape of the body, but as a weight control method it is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise. Therefore, the patient should be quite close to his or her own ideal weight before the procedure. Good elasticity of the skin helps to reach a satisfying result.

Consult the plastic surgeon of combining liposuction with other cosmetic procedures, and whether you are a good candidate for liposuction.
