Laser Liposuction – Am I a Good Candidate?
These are important factors that we use to determine if you are a good candidate for laser liposuction:
1) Skin Elasticity: Multiple pregnancies and weight fluctuations can cause the skin to lose some of its elasticity (springs in the skin). Loose skin will see some improvement from the laser component of the laser liposuction, but it can’t offset a significant amount of looseness. If you have loose skin, you may want to consider a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) or a mini tummy tuck
2) BMI: Patients who have a BMI of larger than 35 may not be great candidates for liposuction. At our practice American Lipo Centers, we will sometimes perform liposuction in some of our offices on patients with BMI’s that are higher, but this depends on the surgeon’s preferences and the patient’s skin tone; If you have a BMI larger than 35, you may want to consider loosing some weight and then doing liposuction
