Liposuction - is it best to gain weight?
- Please do not gain weight for liposuction.
- It is not necessary and may give you a worse result.
- When people are trim, as you are, the fat can still be removed with tumescent liposuction (injection of fluid before liposuction) and a small cannula.
- It is also important to have an examination -
- In a trim person such as yourself, at times what looks like excess fat is in fact loose skin -
- Especially if you have lost a fair amount of weight.
- Start with a consultation with a plastic surgeon.
- Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
