For those looking to finally target areas of unwanted body fat, there is only one word: liposuction.

Vienna, VA based Dr. Shlomo Widder is among the top doctors in the area for liposuction and other body boosting procedures.

If you are interested in learning if liposuction is right for you, read below to see if you meet the guidelines for the ideal patient.

The Criteria

Your doctor should be able to determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction based on your overall health, skin elasticity and current body weight. 

It is important to note that if you are pregnant, or have any existing heart or blood clotting issues you are not a good candidate for liposuction.

You must be a minimum of 18 years old. 

The Treatment Area

Once your doctor has evaluated your current state and decided if you are a healthy candidate for liposuction, you next want to evaluate the areas of concern

Generally, the most popular areas for liposuction are where the fat lies just beneath the skin such as the thighs, arms, abdomen, hops, waist and flanks.  

If you are interested in addressing body fat in the belly, liposuction may not be the best option for you if you have children and your skin and muscles are loose.  

Do You Want to Lose Weight?

One of the biggest misconceptions of liposuction is that it is a solution for excess weight. 

This is simply not true. 

While you may lose a bit of weight with liposuction, you will gain it back rapidly if you do not control your eating. 

Liposuction is intended as a means of addressing body contouring and silhouette.
