Will Liposuction Be Effective For Me?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to get information on cost and recovery time for different lipo procedures for various parts of my body – arms, chin, stomach, hips and thighs.  I’d like to explore smart lipo and lipo dissolve, but would like to know if I can get good results.

A: Fat reduction by liposuction has a myriad of considerations including effectiveness, cost and recovery. It is impossible to give any reasonable answer to these questions without actually seeing a patient and evaluating each one of their body areas of concernb. The variables that affect these issues you have asked, such as thickness and size of the fat, quality and amount of overlying skin, how many and what body areas would be treated and what one’s physical health and occupation is makes any answers to these questions truly an individual one. I would recommend that you have an actual consultation with a plastic surgeon to get meaningful answers to your very relevant questions. While many people would like fat reduction, most commonly done by liposuction, it may not be the right answer for  everyone.
