Vaser Liposuction Doctor for Obese Patients?

Obestit and liposuction
Obesity and liposuction do not mix. Liposuction should not be used as a treatment for obesity. A good diet and exercise are the first line of attack to treat obesity.
This is not a recommended procedure.
You probably cannot find a doctor because it is not a recommended procedure. Liposuction is intended for localized control of fatty deposits and not intended for weight loss. Obesity is associated with an increased risk of perioperative morbidity and mortality.
