Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?


Liposuction is an excellent way to achieve a more toned, sculpted body by removing stubborn pockets of fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. But it is important to understand that not everyone is a candidate for liposuction. Before moving forward with your procedure, Dr. Bottger will first evaluate you to make sure liposuction is the right option for you. Ideal candidates for liposuction:

  • Are in good health
  • Are close to their ideal body weight
  • Have one or more areas of fat deposits which have not responded to diet and exercise
  • Have good skin tone and elasticity
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure

Keep in mind that liposuction is not a tool for weight loss. It is intended to achieve subtle sculpting results for patients who are already in good shape. If you need to lose a significant amount of weight, this must be accomplished before moving forward with liposuction. Once you have reached your target weight, Dr. Bottger can help you fine tune your figure with liposuction. If you live in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area and are interested in liposuction, please contact Dr. David Bottger today to schedule your initial consultation.
