Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures done in the U.S. This is not surprising, due to the procedure’s flexibility when it comes to customization, as well as long-lasting results. However, it is important that patients remember to do their research when it comes to plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. Here are some questions you should be sure to ask your surgeon during your liposuction consultation.
1.)    Are you board certified?
It is important that your plastic surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery for the safest results. During your consultation, ask if your surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  This board certification ensures that your surgeon has extensive training and liposuction experience.
2.)    What liposuction techniques do you perform?
There is a selection of basic and advanced liposuction techniques used in plastic surgery today, and not every surgeon will offer the same options. All liposuction uses some form of tumescent liposuction where a solution is injected into the treatment area and then excess fat is suctioned away.  The most advanced method is the Body Tite that is now offered by Dr. Colony.  This method includes “shrink-wrap” skin tightening along with fat removal.
3.)    Are results permanent?
It is important for patients to fully understand what to expect following their liposuction procedure.   Patients who wish to maintain their new figure should follow a healthy lifestyle including a healthy diet and exercise.
