Liposuction Candidacy


Liposuction is the most popular body sculpting procedure in the United States, but it may not be ideal for everyone. Board-certified Mesa liposuction surgeon Dr. John Corey will help you determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure during your initial consultation.

Good Liposuction Candidates

Good candidates for liposuction should:

  • Be within 30 pounds of their goal weight
  • Have a BMI no greater than 30, preferably less than 25
  • Be a nonsmoker in generally good health
  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Be prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Be willing to adopt a healthy lifestyle

Liposuction is an ideal way to remove stubborn deposits of fat from nearly every area of your body, but is not considered a weight loss procedure. Body sculpting is best for men and women who are physically active, but have found diet and exercise ineffective at removing all fat deposits.

To keep fat off after liposuction, you will need to continue leading a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Corey can discuss the best ways to maintain your results during your liposuction consultation.
