Finding Liposuction Doctors

The decision to undergo a liposuction procedure is not one to be taken lightly. Finding the right surgeon based on an individual’s goals, ideals, and budget is a challenging task that can take a lengthy period of time and requires a lot of research and consideration on behalf of the potential patient.


After considering exactly what is expected from the procedure, research on the procedure itself should be done. After reading about the different liposuction procedures and how they are performed, if interest is still peaked, then it is time to start considering individual surgeons. A good liposuction surgeon is one who is proud of his work. Consultations should be offered proactively, for low prices if not free.


If a website is available, potential clients should be sure to review it thoroughly. It should not be cluttered with testimonials, but provide a portfolio of before and after photos. The website should include a short biography of the surgeon(s) and include a list of academic achievements for each. The clinic should be proud of their surgeons and display their qualifications clearly.


A good liposuction surgeon will not be concerned with “selling” a client their service. They will ensure that expectations are set clearly and may even refuse to perform a procedure if a client’s expectations are unrealistic or unachievable. Literature on the procedures should be readily available, and the surgeon should be ready and willing to answer any questions that may arise. He or she should be willing to listen to any concerns and take note of the patient’s desired outcome. After the procedure itself has been mapped, a good liposuction surgeon will be sure to explain each and every step of the process to the patient.

If the procedure will be performed in a private clinic, it is important for patients to request to see the operating area. A confident and reputable surgeon will not hesitate to show his clients where their surgeries will be performed, or will offer an appointment to do so if the area is not available at the time of the request. Do not be afraid to request to see certification from government health officials verifying the cleanliness of the operation.


A good, experienced practitioner of liposuction will proudly display his work. Photos will likely be posted in plain view in the office or clinic, magazines and other literature on the varieties of liposuction procedures should be accessible to visitors. Likewise, any educational degrees or certificates and licenses that permit a surgeon to practice cosmetic surgeries should be easily visible. It is important to find a proud, confident practitioner who is happy to meet his clients before the procedure and help them feel comfortable in all respects.

Weight Loss Options

Losing weight can be a challenge for many people. It requires dedication, perseverance and planning. One of the main things that people should consider before beginning a weight loss program is what the program requires and if that person’s lifestyle can accommodate it.

Here are five ways to consider approaching weight loss before you begin.

A weight loss program such as Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers.

These programs offer specialty foods designed to taste great but promote weight loss, points systems, and regular meetings. The weekly meetings offered by Weight Watchers are great support networks and many people who attend find they make wonderful friends there.

Surgical Procedures

Let’s face it, this is a society where plastic surgery to improve one’s appearance is becoming more and more common. Many people consider the practicality of liposuction, lipodissolving, gastric bypass surgery or even products like The Lap Band and The Gastric Balloon.

Surgical weight loss is costly, and the recovery times differ for everyone. Tummy tucks are becoming common place for those who have lost weight and have loose skin. Liposuction is occurring more frequently, and new procedures are being developed frequently.

Body Wraps

By covering the body with a paste made of mineral salt and clay, then wrapping the body with cotton strips pre-soaked with a solution made of the same ingredients, body wraps cleanse the skin of toxins and exfoliate it. The cotton wraps promises to tighten skin and reduce your appearance by up to six inches. Since the clay and mineral salt hardens on the skin, it holds soft tissue in place for a period of time. It’s effects are not permanent.

Diet Plans

Atkins, South Beach, Slimfast, they come and go so quick who can keep track of them all? There’s no denying though, some people do find great success in these plans when they follow them correctly and get lots of exercise in their daily lives. Sometimes, a diet plan is great for someone who just isn’t sure how to make the right changes in their life but doesn’t care for surgical weightloss. Do your research, ensure the diet plan you consider meets your daily nutrition requirements. Consult with your physician before beginning any diet plan and make sure it works for you.

It’s Not A Diet, It’s A Lifestyle Change

Tried and true, this is the only diet plan that has passed the test of time. Ask anyone who has tried it – it took lots of patience, lots of hard work, and lots of diligence, but it worked. By changing your lifestyle to include healthier eating and living habits, ensuring you get lots of exercise and cut out processed foods, you’ll not only lose weight but will be all around healthier. You’ll live longer, feel happier and more energetic. Talk to your physician about developing a new lifestyle that will curb your ailments and keep you healthy for years to come.
