What procedure and areas will be best for me for fat reduction?
I generally recommend that patients be within 15-20 lbs of their ideal weight for their height/age before undergoing elective surgery because post operative results will be much better. One reason for this is that we carry some fat intra-abdominally (around your organs, under your abdominal muscles) and this type of fat cannot be removed via liposuction or abdominoplasty, only through weight loss. If you are closer to your ideal weight beforehand you will also have the maximum tightening benefit that an abdominoplasty can accomplish. Losing weight on your own first is important because in order to obtain long term, lasting results, a good diet and exercise regimen is mandatory. When you are closer to your ideal weight, I would recommend that you see a few board certified plastic surgeons to know which procedures would best suit you. Best of luck!
Fat reduction - best procedures?
- As you know, you are quite overweight.
- The only procedure that will make a significant change will be liposuction
- But it changes proportions - it is not for weight loss.
- This means that unless you lose weight afterwards, fat returns to new areas.
- To get your best result from liposuction, you should lose until you are within 10 pounds of your normal weight and then lose ten pounds afterwards.
- Some people have liposuction to motivate them to lose weight -
- It can work but often, the person loves the result but can't lose weight and ends up disappointed.
