Common Misconceptions about Liposuction

liposuction misconceptions

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed by Dr. Kapoor. He performs each surgery using the most advanced techniques and equipment to guarantee stunning results. But while liposuctions are highly sought after for a variety of reasons, there are several misconceptions about the procedure that a lot of patients tend to believe.

Our professional staff members have gathered a list of the most common misconceptions about liposuction to help bust some of those myths. There are a lot of misunderstandings about liposuction in Beverly Hills that can cause a patient to change their mind about getting the procedure in the first place – or, they encourage them to get the procedure for the wrong reasons. To clear things up, there are several things that our staff would love for you to understand!

Here are the most common misconceptions about liposuction, and the truths behind them.

Misconceptions #1: Liposuction is for Older People

There’s a myth that liposuction is only for older people. The truth is that liposuction is a completely healthy and safe procedure for patients of all ages. Anybody who qualifies as a candidate for this fat-sucking procedure can speak with Dr. Kapoor about their liposuction needs. The procedure is meant to remove certain pockets of fat, which can be safely performed on almost any healthy person.

Misconceptions #2: Liposuction Helps You Lose Weight

One of the biggest reasons people pursue the liposuction procedure is because they believe it will help them lose a significant amount of weight. Though, most patients only lose between 3 and 5 pounds of fat after the procedure is complete. Most candidates for liposuction are already within 30% of their healthy weight range. The procedure is just for removing certain areas of stubborn fat, not contributing to the weight loss process altogether.

Misconceptions #3: Liposuction Gets Rid of Annoying Belly Fat

There are two types of fat in the body that exist, and liposuction only helps with one of them. Subcutaneous fat is the fat located below the skin and above the muscle, while visceral fat resides underneath the muscles. Most belly fat is visceral, and therefore cannot be removed with a liposuction procedure. However, subcutaneous fat is the best for the procedure.

Misconceptions #4: The Fat Will Return Eventually

Fat that is removed during the liposuction procedure will never return. That area should be free from fat for the rest of your life, unless your calorie intake heavily increases. However, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine can ensure that the fat will never return to those areas.

Misconceptions #5: Liposuction Gets Rid of Cellulite

Unfortunately, the liposuction procedure does not get rid of cellulite. This is because cellulite itself is not a pocket of fat, but rather the pushing of connective tissue beneath the skin due to the growth of subcutaneous fat. Liposuction does not alter the way these tissues look in any way. There are other procedures that can better treat cellulite, but you should not depend on liposuction to get the job done for you.
