The myth that liposuction is just a weight loss surgery is a very popular belief, but the truth is far from it. Although after liposuction patients may look slimmer, the main purpose of liposuction is to reshape body form by removing excess pockets of fat or transfer the fat to more visually appealing parts of the body.
Therefore, liposuction isn’t just for people who are overweight. On the contrary, this procedure could be an ideal surgery for people, who despite diet and exercise, cannot get rid of excess fat in different areas of their body. Having said that, this doesn’t mean that overweight or obese people do not benefit from this cosmetic surgery. Anyone who is having a hard time shedding stubborn fat can benefit from liposuction and have a more toned figure, though extremely overweight people are not ideal candidates.
