Total amount counts: It's not the number of body areas that is counted for safety as the total amount of fat removed is. You will be sore all over but if the total amount is within reasonable range, you're ok. Your board certified plastic surgeon will judge the safe amount for you. ...Read more

Have graves' disease as a result put on weight, i went to Africa to see whether i can get a liposuction, would it be safe to do it with the illness?

Be careful: I would advise against both your statements. You should see a local plastic surgeon for better advice and should stay local. Do not bargain with your health. Your car probably cost three or four times the lipo and will only be good for 5 - 10 years. Your lipo will be good for life. Now on the weigh gain and lipo, this is not for weight loss. Lipo is for contouring. Treat the graves, first. ...Read more
