I'm very well educated when it comes to health & fitness & d only way of gaining weight is more calories in than out. I know that lipo does not make you gain weight BUT I'm little concerned about what I've read since I'm 2 days shy of having lipo on my inner thighs.I would die IF having lipo would make me increase fat in other places to compensate for the fat cells that's been suctioned out.

Liposuction and fat distribution
If you have liposuction and your weight does not fluctuate significantly then, it is unlikely fat would accumulate elsewhere.
If the fat cells are destroyed in one ares and you are not careful with your eating habits you will store fat somewhere else. I have found that one of the keys to long term success is good eating habits and regular exercise.
