Why doesn't liposuction work for weight loss
Liposuction permanently removes fat cells from specific areas of the body.
The body can store fat anywhere - so if you don't lose weight, fat cells in other areas store more fat than before.
Remember - liposuction changes contour.
It does not change the ability of the body to store fat except in the treated areas.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Liposuction—Think of it as a tool
Although many people think of liposuction as a fat removal procedure, it’s actually more accurately described as a body-shaping technique. Candidates for liposuction are ideally within about 30% of their recommended body weight, since the procedure is not primarily used as a weight loss measure. Instead, think of it as a tool. People who are already taking steps to ensure good health can use liposuction to further sculpt targeted areas of the body by removing disproportionate pockets of fullness. The best candidates for the procedure should have at least fairly good skin tone. This ensures the skin will bounce back without excess sagging afterward.During your consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, your doctor will show you how much fat you can have removed during liposuction. A skilled and experienced surgeon will have your safety foremost in mind while creating natural looking contours to your body as the ultimate goal.
