Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction has become one of the most popular aesthetic procedures today. It helps with the removal and contouring of body fat.

The result is a firmer and slimmer shape, which can give you more confidence about the way you look. But is liposuction right for you? Are you a good candidate? Read on to discover everything you need to know.

Benefits of Liposuction

There are many different benefits associated with this treatment. This includes the fact that liposuction can be used to treat a wide range of areas. This includes the following:

  • Neck, chin
  • Chest area
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Waist and abdomen
  • Buttocks and hips
  • Thighs

Liposuction can enhance your appearance, helping you to look slimmer and more toned. This can give you a great confidence boost, with the positive effects of this spilling into other areas of your life.

While most people have liposuction for cosmetic purposes, it can also be used to treat certain conditions. This includes lipomas, extreme weight loss after obesity, lipodystrophy syndrome, gynecomastia, and lymphedema.

Great Candidates for Liposuction

A good candidate for liposuction is a person who is bothered by the excess deposits of fat they have on their body. If you have tried dieting and exercising and these fat deposits do not respond, liposuction is the logical next step.

There are some other factors that will make you a good candidate for this treatment:

Within 30% Of Ideal Weight

Dr. Earle recommends that you are within 30 percent of your ideal weight to have this treatment. This is not a procedure that is designed for those looking to lose weight; it is for toning and shaping the body.


As is the case with the majority of the treatments that we provide here at Pure Plastic Surgery, it is better for you to be a non-smoker who has good general health.

Those With Realistic Expectations

Realistic expectations are important when it comes to liposuction. Many people think that this is a magic weight loss formula, which will help them to shed a huge amount of pounds on the scales. That is not what liposuction is designed for.

During your consultation with Dr. Earle, he will inform you of what you can realistically expect from this treatment so that you do not get your hopes up for something that is not achievable.

Healthy Skin Elasticity

People who have good muscle tone and elastic skin are better suited to this treatment.


There’s a time in your life where you need a boost, a fresh start, and a way to take control of things. We all have features about ourselves we want to change on the outside and it can affect us on the inside.

Pure’s goal is to give people a chance to make smart choices that lead to the results that will empower and inspire them to reach their dreams. Pure is led by Dr. S. Alexander Earle, who performs a wide range of procedures with an incredibly high rate of customer satisfaction.

Liposuction Is Not a Weight Loss Solution

A lot of people believe that liposuction is a weight loss treatment, but this is not the case. Liposuction is designed to firm and contour the body, which is why you are advised to be within 30 percent of your ideal weight to have this treatment.
