Liposuction 101 - What is Liposcution?
‘Thin is in’ – this is the principle by which the modern world defines beauty today. And as much as we lament the fact that we have to deprive ourselves of all our favorite food just to be beautiful, the standards won’t change – at least, not any time soon.

Unfortunately, the amount of time and effort that we really have to put into becoming thin is oftentimes too excessive, so much that it might even border on masochism. Fortunately, modern medicine has found a way to make us beautiful without having to pass through the torture of strict diets and strenuous exercises. The shortcut is, of course, liposuction.

Liposuction Defined

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat deposits from the body. It is done to provide shape and form to the body and to bring it closer to the textbook definition of ‘sexiness’ in this metropolitan world. It’s not really done to cure obesity or anything like that. It’s designed to remove flab and make people look sexy.

The Process

Another good thing about liposuction is that it’s not as scary as its predecessor, the tummy tuck. You won’t be waking up with a big scar across your abdomen, that’s for sure. You see, in liposuction, only tiny incisions are made. They just need to be big enough for the vacuum-suction canula – a hollow instrument just about as big as a pen – to fit. An ultrasonic probe is then used to emulsify or to break the body’s fat deposits. Once done, the fat is then suctioned or siphoned through the tubes, which create tiny hollow tunnels where the fat once was. After a while, these tunnels will collapse and the body will have its desired contour.

The parts of the body that undergo liposuction are the abdomen, hips, calves, thighs, arms, back, neck, face, and the buttocks. Most of the time, these procedures are done all in the same day.

Liposuction is not used purely for cosmetic purposes, however. Liposuction is also done to treat gynecomastia, a condition wherein a male’s breasts are abnormally large. It is also used to treat Lipomas or fat tumors.

Indeed, liposuction is one of the most commonly done procedures today. It’s quite popular, especially with people who desire to be beautiful and sexy on the outside. Think of it as a procedure that removes fat and thus boost your self-confidence.

Liposuction in New York City is perhaps one of the best places in the world to undergo your surgery due to the expertise of area surgeons.

Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Apparently, ads for plastic surgery are as prone to exaggeration as any other. If you’ve seen the ads for liposuction, those that promise beauty and sex appeal to anyone who wants it, you’ll know what I mean. Liposuction, which is essentially a shortcut to getting a good form, is not a shortcut that everyone can take. You can think of it as a door to sexiness – a narrow one in which not everyone will fit – not those who want to be sexy the most, anyway.

Perhaps, to know who the good candidates for liposuction are, it’s probably best if you find out who aren’t qualified first.

Bad Candidates

It’s ironic; you’d think that a surgery for sexiness would be best suited to those who need it the most. But with liposuction, that’s not the case at all. Obese people cannot undergo liposuction for the simple reason that liposuction is not a surgery for the removal of fat. It involves removing fat deposits, yes. But liposuction is more for the provision of form.

It’s a surgery for people who have excess fat on some parts of their body but are relatively still within the right weight range. That liposuction will cure obesity is one of the most common misconceptions, and often causes a lot of disappointment.

Diabetic people are also poor candidates for liposuction. In fact, they’re poor candidates for just about any type of surgery because operating on them is rather risky. Diabetics are discouraged to undergo any surgery, unless it is absolutely necessary. And liposuction, of course, is out of the question.

Smokers, too, are poor candidates for liposuction, for the same reason as diabetics.

Good Candidates

One concrete way to determine if you’re a good candidate for liposuction is to check your ideal body weight. There are calculators for IBW all over the net; all you need to do is to know your height and weight. If you’re 25 pounds from your IBW, then you’re considered as a good candidate.

The people who can undergo liposuction, therefore, are those who are relatively healthy and those who have realistic expectations. Liposuction is by no means a cure-all solution. Oftentimes, you’ll have to supplement the operation with exercise and a proper diet afterwards. You can’t exactly go to the clinic each time you gain weight, so you have to be disciplined if you want to maintain the form you get after the liposuction.

Cost of Liposuction
When it comes to deciding about liposuction, the question isn’t “Do you want to be sexy?” The answer to that would probably be a very obvious and very resonant “YES!”. The real question is, “Can you afford it?”

Indeed, beauty doesn’t come cheap. The cost of cosmetic surgery is exorbitantly high, and for good reason. A good surgeon is hard to find, especially with the number of fakes, frauds and swindlers running around the market these days. And if you do find a clinic that offers liposuction at a low price, you’ll have to ask yourself if it’s really smart to accept a discount from someone who will use a knife on your body.

Say No to a Discount

You see, if you put your trust on an inexpensive clinic, you’ll be running the risk of doubling – even tripling – the amount of money you’ll have to pay if the doctor messes up. Some of these surgeons who don’t have the right credentials might actually ruin your body instead of make it beautiful.

The inexperienced surgeon could either overdo the whole suction thing and warp your curves, or do so little that you’d think you didn’t have liposuction at all. Or worse, they could make your curves uneven, leaving you with unsightly dents on your skin and scars that are too conspicuous. And if that happens, you’ll either have to go to a proper surgeon to get your body fixed or be disfigured for the rest of your life.

It’s best to just skip the drama and go to a proper doctor with a good reputation even if it might mean paying a little more money than you would want.

But if you really want to go to a low-end clinic, then it’s up to you. I personally recommend a high-end one. Or you can always go to a clinic that’s somewhere in the middle – that would be a rather prudent choice.

The Actual Cost

Now, if you do decide to get liposuction, know that you’ll be paying for everything from the smallest of sterile cotton balls to the actual doctor’s fee. There’s the non-surgical fee which includes the cost of the operating room, the medical staff, the laboratory tests, and the supplies. Surgical fees, on the other hand, refer to the amount you pay to the surgeon.

The surgical fee would actually vary depending on the body part. The abdomen and thighs are the most expensive, ranging from as low as $1000 to as high as $8000. While parts like the buttocks and the arms could range from $1000 to $5000.
