How do I know if I am a candidate for liposuction?

Dr. Del Vecchio believes strongly that not everyone is a candidate for liposuction. The key element is that you have realistic expectations and realize that liposuction is not a cure for obesity.

A good candidate for Liposuction can be broadly defined as someone who:

  • Is in Good Health
  • Has a realistic expectation of what can be accomplished
  • Has one or many localized areas of fat
  • Is close to their desired weight (within 20 –30%)
  • Has good skin tone or elasticity
  • Does not have sagging skin
  • Is not looking for Liposuction to cure obesity

Does Liposuction produce permanent results?

When Dr. Del Vecchio performs liposuction, the cells that he removes during the procedure will not grow back. At that point it is up to you to make the results permanent. As long as you do not overeat more calories a day than your body burns and you do not gain an excessive amount of weight after the liposuction surgery, your body contouring should be permanent.

What types of Liposuction does Dr. Del Vecchio do?

Dr Del Vecchio performs liposuction of the neck, breasts, abdomen flanks, and back. In addition, Dr Del Vecchio treats the thighs including the inner knee areas with liposuction.

Dr Del Vecchio also performs fat transfer, where aspirated fat removed from one pert of the body is placed in another area to augment the recipient site. This is done for Buttock augmentation, and, in selected patients to enhance breast size. If you are a candidate for liposuction you should consider discussing these options with Dr Del Vecchio during your consultation, should they be of interest to you.
