The consultation process is an essential part of preparing for a successful liposuction procedure, also known as lipoplasty. By discussing your medical history and specific situation with Dr. Edelstein it’s possible to determine whether liposuction is the right procedure for your needs, and to address any concerns you may have regarding the treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A LIPOPLASTY CONSULTATION
Whether Liposuction is Right For Your Body
The first step of your consultation is trying to determine if the body area (or areas) you want treated will respond well to liposuction. While many patients will already have read up on the procedure, your surgeon needs to be sure that the treatment is a medically suitable option before moving forward. Patients who wish to undergo liposuction in order to lose weight or resolve issues involving intra-abdominal fat may need to be directed toward a different procedure. Safer alternatives to liposuction may be presented. If the abdominal area is to be targeted and loose skin and weak muscles also exist, having a tummy tuck may be a better option as a liposuction alternative.
It’s essential that patients have realistic expectations regarding their liposuction results. During the consultation your surgeon tries to determine whether or not you will be happy with the physical changes that liposuction is likely to bring. They judge this by leveraging their knowledge of the procedure with your expectations and long-term effects of the procedure. It’s essential to know if patients will still be happy with their decision to undergo liposuction years after the treatment and, most importantly, if they’ll achieve the goals they hope the procedure will provide.

A Physical Exam and Lab Work to Make Sure Liposuction is Safe For You
Liposuction candidates who wish to proceed with surgery will be asked to give Edelstein Cosmetic their medical history, undergo a brief physician examination and provide a blood sample to be used for routine tests. These tests are used by the clinic to ensure that you are healthy and that liposuction can be safely performed.
