Liposuction procedure being in obesity


Countless patients ask me to perform a liposuction procedure being in obesity. I remind you that plastic surgery is not for weight loss, is to shape. The closer you are to your ideal weight your results will be better. A SAFE Plastic Surgery is to fulfill all the protocols established in our specialty. Is not the same taking out 5 liters (the maximum that should work in a safe lipo) in a patient close to their ideal weight, than working that same amount in a obese patient. The result is spectacular in the first scenario. Violating those rules is risking the patient's life. You cannot work from the scalp till the big toe, that's unconsciousness, inexperience, fearlessness and as I say, playing God, who is the master of life and death. Protocols should not be violated.
