Safety First: What to Look for in a Med Spa Offering Liposuction

If you’re struggling to lose fat in areas of your body despite exercising and eating well, you might benefit from liposuction. It’s a procedure designed to enhance your natural features and create the beautiful body shape that you desire.
However, not all medical spas are going to have the expertise to give you the results you want and make sure you stay safe during the procedure. This makes it extremely important to look for a few key features when deciding where to book your liposuction appointment.

5 Things to Look For in Med Spas Offering Liposuction

1. Board-Certified Surgeons

The expertise and qualifications of the surgeon performing your liposuction is one of the most important factors. Make sure your surgeon is a board certified plastic surgeon, either through the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

Safety First

This ensures they have completed rigorous education and training requirements, have gone to medical school, passed comprehensive exams, and are committed to ongoing education in their field. Being board-certified also means they are up-to-date with the latest techniques and safety standards. Ask about their certifications during your consultation, or call the office to confirm.
While your surgeon might receive assistance from a physician assistant or nurse practitioner, a liposuction surgical procedure should always be performed by board certified plastic surgeons.

2. State-of-the-Art Facilities

The quality of the facility where liposuction surgical procedures are performed will directly impact safety, the effectiveness of the procedure, and the overall experience. State-of-the-art facilities are equipped with the latest technology for less invasive procedures and adhere to stringent hygiene and safety protocols.
The med spa you select should operate in a facility accredited by a recognized accrediting organization, such as the Joint Commission or the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities. These accreditations indicate that the facility meets high standards for care, equipment, staff qualifications, and emergency preparedness.

3. Comprehensive Consultation Process

Before the liposuction procedure is scheduled, you should always have a consultation with your surgeon to determine if you are a candidate for liposuction and for the surgeon to understand your aesthetic goals and medical history. Look for a medical spa that offers a comprehensive consultation process, including a detailed discussion of your goals, an assessment of your health and body, and a clear explanation of the procedure, risks, and recovery expectations.

Customized Treatment Plans

4. Customized Treatment Plans

Everybody is unique and your liposuction treatment plan should be customized based on your shape and goals. A one-size-fits-all approach should never be used with liposuction treatment. Choose a med spa surgeon who discusses the different liposuction techniques and technologies, such as tumescent liposuction, and recommends the best approach based on your body type, the area being treated, and your desired outcome.

5. Positive Reviews and Before-and-After Galleries

Past patients’ experiences and the visual results of their procedures can provide valuable insights into the quality of care and outcomes you can expect. Look for a med spa with positive reviews and one that provides before-and-after photo galleries of their patients. This will help you gauge the surgeon’s skill level and aesthetic style.
