Laser liposuction after yoyo dieting

Usually with yoyo dieting there is significant stretching of the skin.  Although laser liposuction has the advantage of producing a greater tightening than I have been able to achieve with other types of liposuction, there is a limit to what can be accomplished.  Your first priority should be a structured weigh loss program that integrates exercise and proper nutritional management.  This will over time produce a significant benefit and bring your weight into a realistic range that can be maintained over the long term.  At that point body contour surgery can be of real benefit, but it will most likely involve removal of loose skin.  Best of luck
