There is a belief that you need to be reed thin with a few stubborn pockets of hard-to-budge fat deposits before you should consider liposuction. Actually, you can be a good candidate even if you are moderately overweight. For those who are obese, you should consult with a plastic surgeon, but may need to try to lose some weight before having this procedure if you are looking for the best possible results. As with most other cosmetic surgeries, have good skin elasticity also is very beneficial in getting a good outcome, so older patients may not achieve the same result as those who are younger.
The benefits of liposuction
Many women find that the area where they find it hard to eliminate fat deposits is the abdomen area, as well as hips, thighs, and inner knees. Men have different hormones, so they may find that their problem areas are also the abdomen, but include their chests. In particular, some men develop breasts and they find it embarrassing to remove their shirts as a result. Liposuction can solve these problems. It’s also possible to have liposuction on the face, particularly the chin area when the neck muscles weaken and the flesh around the jaw sags and fat is deposited. This is what causes the jowls and the double and triple chins that can develop in middle-aged men and women. However, as with all cosmetic surgery, liposuction is not a magic wand. It will definitely improve the contours of your body, but won’t miraculously change the way your skin looks. If you’ve battled with cellulite, for example, this might be improved, but it won’t be able to completely change your skin tone.
The cost of liposuction in Chicago
Prices for various procedures vary a lot according to the city and the doctor you consult. It should be stressed that you should always use a Board certified cosmetic surgeon as this is not the time to be shopping around for bargain basement prices. Generally, the length of time spent in an operating room determines the price. Some people are having different areas of liposuction such as on their hips, buttocks, and outer thighs, and the total cost would be the sum of the surgical fees for each area. There are also variable costs such as anesthesia to consider. The highly professional doctors at Chicagoland Aesthetics would be happy to consult with you and to let you know whether you’d be a good candidate for liposuction as well as providing you with a cost for the procedure.
