Are You a Candidate for Liposuction in Elgin?

Published by DR. Bradley Ashpole

There’s no arguing with the concept that if you look good, you feel good. Opting for liposuction in Elgin is a great way to simultaneously improve your body image and your mindset for men and women alike. Stubborn fat on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck or arms that won’t seem to go away with diet and exercise is reduced via Dr. Ashpole’s state-of-the-art techniques. However, not everyone is a good candidate for liposuction.

Ideal Liposuction Candidates

If you want to get liposuction, you should be a healthy, nonsmoking individual who does not have a life-threatening illness or medical condition that would potentially make the healing process more complicated. You must also be within 30 percent of your ideal weight and have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone. It is also ideal for you to have specific goals in mind when it comes to the end result of your liposuction procedure.

Recovery from Liposuction in Elgin

Any treatment areas on your body will be covered with elastic bandages to help control swelling and compress the skin to hug your new body contours. If necessary, Dr. Ashpole will insert temporary drains beneath your skin to get rid of any excess blood or fluid. Your doctor will also go over any necessary medications to take as well as address any specific concerns of which you should be aware. Expect swelling to gradually go away, but it could take several months in order to see complete results.

It is important that you don’t view liposuction as a weight-loss alternative, but rather as a way to help sculpt and contour specific parts of your body. Contact Ashpole Plastic Surgery if you have questions about liposuction in Elgin!
