There are a number of misconceptions surrounding the liposuction procedure. Perhaps the most prominent is that it’s an effective treatment for Fort Myers-area patients who are looking to lose a great deal of weight.
However, liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It’s only appropriate for patients who are at or near their ideal bodyweight. Patients who are significantly overweight are not sound candidates for the procedure.
You may lose a couple pounds after your liposuction procedure, but this is not guaranteed, and in any case it won’t be a significant figure.
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that is particularly useful for Fort Myers-area patients who have recently lost a great deal of weight, but still find themselves with stubborn deposits of fat. These often won’t respond to diet or exercise, which makes them excellent candidates for liposuction removal.
Dr. Robert Mandraccia will only perform a liposuction procedure if it’s right for you. That means thoroughly evaluating your current state of health and your cosmetic goals to determine if the procedure is appropriate for your specific needs.
