Liposuction is a great motivator for full figured patients.

Liposuction can really help change a person's self image and confidence level and full figured patients are no exception. Lipo is the great motivator and is easy to undergo.

At you size you'll need multiple procedures. It would be best you lose some weight and then do a VASER hi def contouring procedure with revision of the skin and liposuction at the same time.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Thank you for asking about your cosmetic surgery in the DR.
  • It is ill-advised to go outside your area for surgery -
  • The DR has a poor reputation for quality of surgery.
  • I strongly suggest that you reach your goal weight, hold the weight for 3-6 months and then have liposuction in or near Atlanta.
  • Surgery is a process not an event - healing takes 6 - 9 months
  • You need a surgeon to do your surgery and care for you afterwards.
  • Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
