Many people have heard about liposuction and how effective the procedure can be for precise body-fat reduction. However, there are a few misconceptions about the benefits that liposuction can provide. Having a correct understanding of the procedure is critical when deciding if liposuction is your ideal option.

Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. It is not an effective procedure for massive body-fat reduction. Rather, it is ideal for reduction of small amounts of fat in areas all over the body. Liposuction provides the best results in patients who are within 30 pounds of their ideal weight.

Liposuction cannot correct loose excess skin. Candidates with strong, healthy, elastic skin will see the best results.
