Dennis Bucko, Plastic Surgeon, Explains Key to Safe Liposuction Dennis Bucko, a plastic surgeon, knows that an informed patient is best prepared for liposuction. He explains how patients can prepare for the procedure in a way that increases the chances for a successful operation. New York, New York (I- Newswire) September 12, 2012 - Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the country. As such, many people are curious about the procedure, what it entails, and how long it takes to recover. Dennis Bucko, plastic surgeon, knows that the best candidates for such a procedure are those who are willing to learn more about the operation and understand the realistic goals and recovery times that their doctors set. For this reason, he is encouraging patients to ask questions before going under. An article in The Huffington Post highlights the fact that "The safety, efficacy and even longevity of liposuction depend on an educated patient." As such, it is incredibly important that patients ask questions and fully understand the procedure before going through with it. Dr. Bucko recommends that patients consider the preparation and recovery stages of the surgery, as well as the surgery itself, when thinking of questions they may have for their doctors. The article provides four questions for patients to start with. These questions consider what makes a great liposuction candidate, what kind of liposuction will work best for their body, whether or not the procedure is safe, and what permanent effects they can anticipate. "The perfect candidate for liposuction is someone who has isolated 'trouble areas,' such as saddle bags or love handles. These are the areas that diet and exercise simply cannot address," asserts Dennis Bucko, plastic surgeon. "Once a patient understands this and is ready to move on to the next consideration, they should look into the different kinds of liposuction. Suction assisted, ultrasound, laser, and other procedures are available. Patients should talk with their doctors to determine which is best for their specific case." In addressing the other questions posed by the article, Dr. Bucko notes that liposuction is safe, but only if the procedure is performed by a trained doctor. Although it is a popular procedure, liposuction is still an operation that requires a competent, capable healthcare professional who is specially trained. Dr. Bucko notes that the permanence of liposuction depends upon how a patient behaves after the surgery. The article explains: "Liposuction removes fat cells in the area of the procedure and they are gone forever. However, if the patient takes in more calories than they burn, those extra calories are stored as fat." Liposuction is a good option for many patients, and Dr. Bucko encourages individuals who are considering this procedure to talk to their doctors.
