Smartlipo when 300 lbs

Liposuction is best when someone is not terribly overweight but eats healthy and exercises regularly. If there is a bulge in one area that doesn't respond to diet and exercise then liposuction would be ideal for this candidate. Liposuction for someone 300 lbs may not help enough as the life's conditions' contributing to the overweight condition will not have improved necessarily. The weight may come right back after lipo.
