Who is a good candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. You are a good candidate if you are in otherwise good health and have areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Smaller areas such as abdomen, chin and inner/outer thighs are prefect for in-office tumescent liposuction. If a larger procedure is desired, Dr. Christopoulos can provide a more fuller body conturing liposuction surgery.

Tumescent Liposuction can take anywhere between 1 – 5 hours, depending on how many areas are being treated. For example, the chin takes about an hour, abdomen is about 3 hours.

While only local anesthesia is used and no stitches are applied, you may still require a day or two off work to let your body recover from the procedure. However, waiting a week to resume exercising is required.
