Benefits of liposuction
Liposuction is a body contouring surgical procedure. it is intended to smooth out local deposits of fat that can be a challenge if diet and exercise alone arent enough. it is NOT a treatment for obesity. it is NOT a treatment to lower your lipid levels in the blood to prevent conditions like heart attack and stroke. it is not a treatment for people with slow metabolism who tend to gain weight even without over eating. it is also not intended for patients with body dysmorphic disorders who think and feel that they are fat but in fact are not. if u wish to get liposuction u will have to ask your self a very simple question: what is it that i want improved? and discuss that in great details with your surgeon. and take it from there

Liposuction removes areas of fat resistant to diet and exercise
I am sure you are aware that liposuction is for body contouring, not weight loss. Most people have areas of fat that doesn't diminish with diet and exercise, creating disproportions. The fat cells in these areas behave differently than others so by removing them with liposuction a permanent change can be achieved. If you are considering lipo then keep in mind that the most important thing is an experienced surgeon, not the "brand" of the technology.
Benefits of Liposuction
In short, the benefits are largely cosmetic in nature by improving your body contours with fat removal. There have been some studies that also show improvement in your body's ability to maintain normal blood sugar levels after liposuction, but this does not make liposuction the "cure" for diabetes! Also, don't neglect asking about the risks in addition to the benefits of liposuction. A qualified plastic surgeon can provide details of all risks and benefits.
