Not a Candidate for Lipo?


Thank you for your question. Without an exam, it is not possible to give you real good advice, but if your PS told you a re not a candidate, then it is likely due to the low fat concentration he/she feels is in the area. I hope this helps.

Liposuction with panniculectomy

If there is a lot of resection, which would be consistent with a significant weight loss, then liposuction may not be necessary. The essential thing is to insure proper blood flow to the abdominal flaps.

Lipo for weight loss pt?


Liposuction is usually not helpful when people lose a lot of weight. That is because the skin does not contract once the fat is removed. So it would be like having excess skin sag without fat.
