Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction can be the right procedure for anyone who has stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates for liposuction:
- Are in good overall health
- Exercise regularly
- Are physically fit
- Have one or more localized areas of fat to be removed
- Are within 20 pounds of their ideal weight
- Have good skin elasticity
It is important to remember that liposuction is not a tool for weight loss. It is used to remove small pockets of fat from targeted regions of your body in order to achieve a more attractive body contour. While liposuction can be an effective complement to your diet and exercise efforts, it should not be considered a substitute.
While liposuction is most commonly associated with body contouring techniques intended to sculpt regions such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks, it can also be very effective as a facial enhancement procedure. Isolated fatty deposits in the cheeks, jawline, and neck often do not respond well to diet and exercise.
At Grossman | Capraro Plastic Surgery, we can perform facial liposuction to help you get rid of unwanted pockets of fat in these areas. Liposuction can effectively remove excess fat from the following areas of the face:
- Under the chin
- Along the jawline
Both men and women can benefit from the body sculpting enhancements provided by liposuction. This versatile procedure can be performed on just about any area of the body where you have excess fat that you would like removed. Common areas treated with liposuction include:
- Face, neck, and jowls
- Upper arms
- Chest (during male breast reduction)
Fat Transplantation – Put Your Excess Fat to Good Use

Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro employ sophisticated techniques for harvesting, cleaning, and transplanting your fat cells in order to achieve a very natural-looking appearance. If you are interested in enhancing the size and shape of your breasts or buttocks while improving your overall body contour, fat transplantation may be the ideal procedure for you.
