Top 4 Liposuction Myths — Busted!

image-smartlipoBeing one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures, word about liposuction continuously spreads like wildfire from every potential patient to another. Because of this, it could be so easy for information to turn into misinformation. Here are some of the most common liposuction myths that you still might believe to be true.

Liposuction resolves health conditions.

Many believe that because liposuction removes unwanted fat from the body, it can also rid one of their current medical conditions, particularly of heart disease. Although it can provide minor changes in the triglycerides and cholesterol levels of an individual, the procedure is not entirely a treatment for such diseases.

Liposuction is only meant for women.

This is a common misconception, knowing that most patients who consider liposuction are females. There might be more women who want to achieve a more attractive body contour, which is why they usually prefer liposuction than men. However, it is totally possible for men to have excess fat in their body and wish to remove stubborn fat through liposuction as well.

Liposuction can eliminate obesity.

Before even considering the procedure, every potential patient must know that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. While the surgery is done to remove significant fat tissue in particular parts of the body, its main purpose is not to stop a person from being obese. Although this is so, a liposuction is often a good motivation for a patient to start maintaining an ideal weight through proper dieting and exercise.

Liposuction results are permanent.

This assumption could be true, but only if the patient is determined to maintain the results. This can be possible by applying steady changes to one’s lifestyle through regular exercise and healthy dieting. However, if the patient fails to make certain lifestyle changes, there is a possibility for fat to accumulate in other parts of the body eventually.
