Liposuction (“lipo”) is the art of removing unwanted fat deposits from many different areas of a person’s body such as the back, tummy, neck, arms, legs, thighs as well as other areas. Choosing the right surgeon is critical when considering liposuction in the Boston area. Many new procedures are advertised such as “smart lipo” or “vaser lipo”.

Many doctors performing liposuction in the Boston area are not plastic surgeons. Dr Halperin, a Board certified plastic surgeon, can explain the differences between all of these techniques and can help you determine if Body Jet liposuction is right for you.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Not everyone is a good candidate for liposuction. Liposuction is not a good alternative to diet and exercise.  In her Boston area plastic surgery practice, Dr Terri Halperin can discuss your concerns and questions and help you learn about this procedure to remove excess fat.

The best candidates for liposuction are patients who have stubborn areas of fat that they just can’t get rid of, despite diet and exercise. For more information about liposuction, and to see if liposuction is right for you, please contact us for more information.
