Lipo or Gastric sleeve?

A sleeve gastrectomy is indicated in your case that will take care of the weight issue and also give you amazing quality of life and a better life span. Definitely look into a gastric sleeve.

Gastric sleeve

At that weight you have morbid obesity and the liposuction will not remove the overall body fat that is in critical areas. I would seek a bariatric surgeon and get a consultation.
