Best lipo procedure?
Liposuction after 4 kids
Best lipo procedure...........
your skin has been through a great deal; age 50 means their will be some additional loss of skin quality
because of hormonal changes. These are generalities, everyone is different and therefore a plan can only be
devised after careful consideration. I do believe in and use non invasive skin reconditioning in combination
with liposculpture when necessary. I believe it does make a difference. The mechanism of fat removal is
predominantly marketing; the result is in the hands of "who and how" not what...........
Hope this helps

Then the patient's age is around the 50 years old, the skin elasticity is not the great (specially if the patient in menopause). Therefore, if a liposuction is performed, the skin won't "shrink" like in the 20s or 30s. This will cause a relative excess of skin that will make it look wrinkly and unattractive ( it is like making a grape -"fat and smooth" into a raising -"skinny and wrinkly"). In these cases, specially in the abdomen area, patients may need removal of the excess of skin with a panniculectomy or tummy tuck ( if diastasis of the recti present).
Patients in their 50s interested in undergoing liposuction of the torso and other areas should make a consolation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to better know their options regarding their wishes.

Type of liposuction?
There's a lot of confusion about the different types of liposuction. Really, they all work about the same, in terms of their effectiveness of getting rid of fat. The most important variable for you to concentrate on is your choice of surgeon. The analogy of "It's all about the carpenter, not the hammer" applies here.
You could also do well with CoolSculpting, instead of liposuction.
There's a lot more detail on this question on my website.
