Liposuction Candidacy


Sometimes no matter how hard we work to tone and sculpt our bodies with a regular fitness regime and a balanced diet, we just don't get the results we want. Usually this is because the toned muscles we build end up hidden beneath stubborn fat deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. If you are spending hours in the gym without getting the results you deserve, liposuction may be able to help.

Phoenix plastic surgeon Dr. John J. Corey has years of experience assessing the needs of his patients, and he can help you determine if liposuction is the right solution for you. Call 480-767-7700 to schedule a consultation today to see if you are a liposuction candidate.

Ideal liposuction candidates should be in good general health before electing to undergo plastic surgery.
