No to my knowledge: I am not aware of any connection between the two.

No: Ive never seen any research to suggest that it does.

Nope: Liposuction is surgery and surgery tends to make people lose their appetite at least for a while. Don't do this for weight though. :).

Temporarily.: No, but any surgical procedure or other form of “trauma” can cause your body to “crave” additional nutrition/hydration for a period of time after the procedure was performed. It is important, however, after any type of body contouring surgery to maintain a healthy diet and exercise program.

No: No, liposuction will not have any effect on your hunger level. You should maintain a healthy weight, but if you over consume calories after surgery, you could be gaining weight which could be hurting your results.
