For most patients, body dysmorphic disorder will never be an issue. A plastic surgeon may discuss your self-esteem, any mental illness you have, and other things that could get in the way of your overall satisfaction with the results of your surgery. For those who have body dysmorphic disorder, though, even the best liposuction doctor wouldn’t be able to get you the results you want, and cosmetic surgery may never be a viable option. Liposuction is made to remove unwanted fat and nothing else. Depending on how much fat you have in the area, this could sculpt muscles, trim down your waistline, or numerous other things. However, it does not restore your self-esteem if it has been suffering. While patients regularly report increased confidence once they have healed, this is often misconstrued. What does this mean for you? If you are dissatisfied due to depression, body dysmorphic disorder, or other mental health issues that are not within your control, a doctor can’t move forward with any cosmetic surgeries until the issues are resolved. In some cases, doctors will request further psychological evaluations, and this is always done with your best interest in mind.
