It's important when consulting with a doctor regarding a surgical procedure to keep an open mind. Listen to what the doctor is saying but don't hesitate to give that information your own test for "Is this reasonable?” Getting two or more opinions and gathering information from reliable, trusted sources is one of any patient's best tools prior to selecting a surgeon and deciding on a procedure.
You're obviously doing the right things in that regard already, so keep on that track. Continue to ask questions and get answers until you're comfortable and confident that you've found the right doctor and are doing the right procedure.
It's impossible to give a definitive answer based on a picture, but it appears to me that you would be a good candidate for liposuction. Many patients come in to a consultation looking to liposuction as a weight loss tool. That's simply not a good reason to have liposuction. Removing too much fat can result in rippling. In my opinion, liposuction is best used to remove localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Being within 10 - 15 pounds of your ideal weight is where you want to be prior to liposuction surgery, and I'm assuming you're well within that limit now. You should be able to achieve good results with controlled liposuction. Being too aggressive with the procedure can leave you with a very unattractive result.
Good luck! I hope you find the right medical team soon.
