Want to Shape Your Body with Surgery?: Liposuction Explained 
by Carrie McClain June 26, 2005

Other Options

Given the risks, you should be 100% certain that liposuction is what you want. Before you have surgery, I recommend you try some alternatives.

1. Use diet and exercise to decrease body fat. Yes, this is difficult; however, eating right and exercising hasn’t caused any infections or embolisms.

2. Dress to impress. Use clothing, makeup, and jewelry to downplay problem areas and emphasize parts you like. So you’ve got saddlebags; don’t wear tight pants, wear flattering skirts and get a new haircut.

3. Accept your body. Do you love your mother because of her trim waist? Did you pick your best friend because she has such slender thighs? If you did, you have problems. Other people accept your body; treat yourself as well as you treat others.

Surgery is risky, and usually avoided. Not too many people are walking around praying for the money to have an appendectomy. The reason is the risks, the pain, and the time it takes to recover. If you want liposuction, examine the reasons long and hard. Talk to several doctors, friends, family, other patients, and possibly a psychologist. Once you have done all of that, if you still want it, go ahead. Just make sure you are doing it for the right reasons.
