CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 -- Dr. Jennifer Hein of the Women's Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery issues a statement regarding a recent article posted by the Daily Mail, which asserts that liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world. Dr. Hein remarks that, while liposuction is an important procedure that is highly valuable in the cosmetic industry, it is crucial that patients weigh the risks and benefits of this procedure on an individual basis when determining whether or not to undergo this surgery, rather than simply following the trend and succumbing to peer pressure.

According to the article, "Figures released this month from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) reveal that liposuction was the most heavily requested treatment in the world."

Dr. Hein encourages individuals who are interested in liposuction to research their options and talk to their cosmetic surgeons about the details surrounding the procedure; however, she warns against undergoing the operation before being certain that it is the right course of action for individual patients, as she is worried that people may feel peer pressure to have liposuction due to its popularity.

"As with any procedure, it is essential that patients consider the pros and cons of liposuction before undergoing this operation," asserts Dr. Hein of the Women's Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery. "Patients should not have an operation done just because everyone else is, no matter how popular a particular treatment may be. It is imperative that individuals think about the benefits and risks associated with any procedure, as well as the long-term effects that it will have, before deciding whether or not to move forward with it. If an individual is certain that they want a cosmetic treatment for the right reasons, it is equally as important for them to take a look at the science supporting the procedure they have chosen to ensure that the long-term results and risks are well worth the experience. If the long-term results have yet to be studied, I highly recommend that individuals consider waiting until further research has been conducted."
