Questions to Ask During Your Liposuction Consultation

Between short recovery time and dramatic results, its no wonder why liposuction has become one of the most popular plastic surgeries in recent years. Regardless of these benefits though, preparing for the procedure still requires important preparation from patients. Many of the important procedural decisions occur during the consultation. 

This one on one session with the plastic surgeon gives patients the opportunity to ask any and all questions about their upcoming procedure and ensure they know everything they need to know ahead of time. To help interested patients make the most of their session, we’ve pulled together some of the top questions to ask during their consultation. While the list certainly isn’t comprehensive, it should give you a good starting place for planning your liposuction procedure.

What is your experience with liposuction?

Successful liposuction is heavily dependent on the surgeon’s technical skill and ability to create aesthetically pleasing results. Without these important qualifications, patients can end up with less than satisfactory results and may even require retreatment in the future. To mitigate unwanted results, it’s important that patients ask about their surgeon’s experience performing the procedure. Signs of a great surgeon include years of plastic surgery training and experience, continuous training in plastic surgery, and certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

While the procedure can be adapted to different body types and areas of the body, not all patients may enjoy the same benefits from this procedure. The consultation session is an excellent time to get professional feedback on whether liposuction is the best solution to help you achieve your goals. If it’s not, a good plastic surgeon can help you identify better options that leave you feeling confident and comfortable in your body. 

What is the risk involved with liposuction?

Given the minimally invasive nature of treatment and popularity of the procedure, it’s easy to forget that liposuction is still an intensive surgery that comes with risks during and following the procedure. Identifying these risks can help you make a more informed choice to pursue this form of surgery or whether it would be safer to find an alternative.  

What are reasonable expectations for long term results?

It’s easy to get caught up in airbrushed stock photos and expect to enjoy the same flawless looking results. The truth however, is that every person will have a different liposuction experience and enjoy different immediate and long-term results. During the consultation, your surgeon can help you better understand what your unique results will look like now and in the future, ultimately helping you decide whether liposuction is right for you.
