4 Myths about Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States with over 203-thousand cases performed in 2010 alone. It’s important to learn about this procedure before deciding if liposuction in our Omaha practice is right for you.

Myth #1: Liposuction is Only for Women

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons documented 24,000 cases of men undergoing liposuction procedures in 2010, which is a 7% increase over the previous year, and the numbers continue to rise. Fatty tissue typically rests on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen for women; while men see this excess tissue around their flanks, abdomen and back.

Myth #2: Liposuction is Expensive

Pricing for liposuction is typically based on the specific areas of the body which you want to have contoured. During your complimentary cosmetic consultation an exact formal fee quote will be prepared specifically for you. Financing options are available through Care Credit and Chase Health Advance to make monthly payments affordable.

Myth #3: Liposuction is a Quick Fix for People Suffering from Obesity

Liposuction surgery is intended to remove stubborn, localized fat deposits in the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. The ideal candidate for this procedure is an adult who is near his or her ideal body weight and in good overall health.

Myth #4: Liposuction must be done in A Hospital
