I am 100 lbs over weight. I have been unsuccessful with low calorie dieting and consistent exercise. Should I consider liposuction?
No it is not: No liposuction is not the answer for weight loss. Liposuction works best when you are close to your normal body weight, but have some excess deposits in certain areas, not overall weight gain. Liposuction is more of a conturing procedure. You should try and lose as much weight as possible before through diet and exercise. ...Read more
Why do you ask?: If you have a stable weight and maintain it after liposuction, you are not likely to require repeat treatments. Liposuction is meant for contouring the body, not removing weight.

It is one of my preferred approaches and I have tried: syringe, suctions assisted, laser assisted (aka smartlipo), water jet, ultrasonic. ...Read more
See plastic surgeon: Who is certified by the american board of plastic surgery. A couple of caveats: the final result from liposuction is often not apparent for 6-12 months.

Good question!: When fat is removed from an area it does not regenerate there. If you gain weight, it will not return to where the fat was removed but build up in other areas.

Destroy vs remove: Lipozap is a combination of procedures intended to destroy fat withou technically extracting it. It combines a combination of radio frequency, heat and injections (mesotherapy) to destroy the fat. Your body must absorb and eli I ate the dead fat cells.

See your doctor to discuss possible causes and treatments. ...Read more
Zerona: Zerona has very little clinical evidence that proves it actually works. Patients are encouraged to go on a diet after the treatment to help in the "removal" of the lasered fat, but it seems that the diet has more to do with the fat loss than the zerona laser. Consider traditional liposuction, or the noninvasive liposonix. ...Read more

Be Careful!: There are many different "liposuction technologies" available; each claims to be better than the other. Each is also heavily marketed. In my opinion, much more important than the specific technology used (when it comes to the surgical outcome or “effectiveness” of the procedure) is the surgeon using the “tool”. Patients are responsible to do their due diligence and select surgeon carefully. ...Read more
