39 M, Stubborn Spots to Get Rid of in Abs, Flanks, Maybe Chest. Lipo Research in Atlanta

Hi everyone, I've just started my research here on...

Hi everyone, I've just started my research here on RealSelf recently and have gone to 5 consultations so far. I've looked at bunches of before and after photos and have decided it's a matter of when, not if, I will get this done. I know it will be the micro cannula lipo procedure. I have the typical areas that are stubborn -- the fat won't go away as easily now that I'm past my mid 30's. After 5 knee operations, I can't do the hard cardio like I used to. I've read that we have a finite # of fat cells and that lipo isn't meant for weight loss, but simply for fat cell lysis. My BMI is 25, I'm 6'2" and I want the lipo on my upper/lower abs, flanks, and back. I want to get a good combo of personality fit with my surgeon, questions and concerns properly addressed as well as competitive pricing. I will post more as I make my decision. It won't be rushed; I'm house shopping. I will put half down and finance the rest, so adding new debt won't happen until after I close. If anyone has questions, fee free to private message me.

I'm getting closer to deciding who I'll go with for my lipo procedure and I hope to find a house, close then I can set a surgery date in late fall or winter - I would hate to wear compression garments in the South while it's still 90! I've been on several consults so far and have a few more planned.

I've begun a more concentrated workout/diet regimen and am putting some updates on here to gauge progress. I want to be in better shape before my lipo and my goal is for it to be a turning point in staying in the best condition I can be in - I see a lot that people still gain weight after lipo if they resort to bad habits. Getting in shape was much easier when I was 18! Getting older sucks!
