Liposuction for Menopause: What to Consider Before Going Under the Knife

By Samantha Newport

Diet and Exercise is most of the time all someone needs to lose weight. Sometimes that is not enough to produce the desired results. The side effects of menopause can be harsh on a woman and her waistline, making it even more to difficult to lose weight. With women mostly worrying about facial lines, wrinkles and hot flashes because of the different changes in her body that occurs when she reaches menopause, it's no wonder that some women would be labeled as vain when thinks to have procedures from botox injections to facelifts and amidst the facial liposuction costsome would still go beyond that just to look young. That is why some women opt for liposuction. Liposuction is a procedure that basically sucks a certain amount of fat out of the body making the person leaner. There are a lot of things to consider when thinking about this operation.

 The first and most important is health. Anyone considering liposuction should always consult and receive a complete physical examination from a doctor. Clearance from a physician is required by some plastic surgeons, and assures the doctor performing the operation that the person is healthy enough to go under the knife. The second thing to consider is price. Liposuction prices vary greatly and depend on the doctor, the location of the surgery, and the individual person. Procedures like Ultrasonic Liposuction cost up to $2,800 dollars per body area ( finances are tight, it is advisable to postpone the surgery for a later date. The third thing to consider is location. If a person lives in a large city, finding a place to get the surgery should not be hard. This is a harder task for someone living in a small city or rural area. The fourth thing to consider is the actual physician. Aside from getting health clearance, choosing a physician is the next most important. When a person goes under the knife, his or her life is placed in the hands of the surgeon. A woman wanting liposuction needs to do her homework and make sure that the person is a Board Certified Physician. The person also needs to take in account how many years the physician has been in practice and how much experience he or she has in performing liposuction.

If a woman has made the brave decision to get liposuction, she will first consult with a plastic surgeon. He or she will discuss the procedure and set up appointment to do the surgery. A woman should also ask to see some of the physician’s work. This should ease any worry about how qualified the physician is. When diet and exercise fail to produce the desired weight loss, liposuction can help but it should always be the last result.
