Because liposuction is a commonly performed procedure that is also quite flexible in who and what areas of the body it can treat, most Jackson-area residents who want to eliminate stubborn deposits of fat can undergo the procedure.
Dr. Rouchdi Rifai will examine you to ensure that you are a good candidate for liposuction. He’ll discuss the entire procedure with you before you undergo liposuction so that you’ll know what to expect.
An ideal liposuction candidate:
- Is in good overall health with no active infections
- Is at or near their ideal bodyweight
- Has good skin elasticity
- Don’t have much cellulite
- Have concentrated pockets of fat they want to remove
- Is at least 18 years old
If you meet the minimum age requirements, age is not usually a factor. However, older patients often have less skin elasticity, which makes them less ideal as candidates for liposuction.
In short, if you’re in good overall health there is every reason to think that you are a sound liposuction candidate. Our doctor will make sure you don’t undergo any procedure that isn’t right for you.
