How much can I expect to pay for the surgery?
Plastic surgery is something that is customized for every patient since we are all different and nobody has the exact same needs. Therefore it's not possible to give a price without first consulting the doctor. The surgeon will examine your body and makes his recommendations. Then he'll be able to give you a quote. You should expect to pay at least $2,000 for a small surgery, but it can go up to $10,000 and up depending of which area of your body you want to get rid of the fat. If you want to correct more than one area, it will obviously cost more.
We recommend that you consult a certified plastic surgeon to get more precise information.
Why not simply go to the gym and eat healthy food?
Well, technically this is the best way to lose weight, but the result depends on your metabolism. Some people will be very successful doing this and most people will be doing just fine. On the other hand, there are people for who it's much more difficult to lose weight, so plastic surgeries such as liposuction can be a solution.
It's recommended to have good life habits, such as exercising regularly and eating healthy food, after the surgery. Otherwise the patient body will have a tendency to gain back the fat relatively fast.
Who is it for?
The patient should have realistic expectation about the results, be healthy at a minimum and comfortable with the risks involved. Your surgeon or his nurse will inform you of the possible risks. Complications are very rare nowadays, but are still possible. If you are in bad health, the risks for liposuction complications are greater.
Most doctors also recommend that the patients try to lose weight in a natural way before they go for plastic surgery. The patient also needs to be aware the he will need to change the way he eats and work out more frequently after the surgery. Otherwise, hey may soon see himself back in the situation he was before the procedure.
Does it hurt?
Most patients say that it feels like having a large ecchymosis and that they don't really feel the pain because if the pills given by the nurse. You need to understand though that every situation is different and you should ask the question to your doctor during a consultation prior to the surgery.
