Liposuction Candidate?

Thank you for the question.

Although it is not possible to give you good advice without examination,  based on your description I do not think you are a good candidate for liposuction surgery  of any kind.  It appears that you are overweight and should try to reach a stable long-term weight prior to considering any plastic surgical procedure.

If you fall in the wrong hands,  it is likely that you will have the procedure done only to be disappointed with the results.

Best wishes.
