No....: ...But bariatric surgery can do this and more. For 20 pounds, it's really a diet & exercise issue, i'm afraid.

No: With the exception of the rare large panniculectomy, plastic surgical procedures are not designed to remove significant amount of weight or help patients with their weight loss goals. Best to achieve a long-term stable weight, through diet and exercise, prior to proceeding with elective surgery.
