Is liposuction worth considering to get the body weight back to safe levels if someone is obese?

Lipo for weight loss: Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, but is ideal for people of normal weight who have small pockets of fat that need to be removed. 5 liters of fat can be safely removed at one time as an outpatient procedure. This fat weighs around 10 pounds. If you have more fat than 10 pounds, people are better served by losing weight first, trying more excercise, or a weight loss clinic. ...Read more

Can zerona liposuction reduce men's breasts? I have "man-boobs" that i'd really like a safe and effective way to get rid of. Could zerona work?

.

Not really: Zerona only works on fat not on breast gland or excessive skin. Gynecomastia is most of the time a combination of large breast glands, fat and extra skin. Acting on one component only will not give you the result that you anticipate. ...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

How many zerona liposuction treatments can I have? I had six, but only saw about 1 inch change. Is it safe to continue treatments? My doctor says some people just take longer to get rid of the fat. .

Expense: From a medical standpoint, there is no defined limit for zerona treatments. The major limit is financial......This treatment is very expense for the limited effects. Liposuction is a better approach for effect. If you can not tell a difference; maybe the emperor has "new clothes". Have a review and discussion with your cosmetic surgeon, then choose your options. ...Read more

Would like to know if it's necessary to get zerona lipolaser after liposuction?

No: Zerona lipolaser is never necessary, not before or after a lipo. If you didn't get good enough results with a lipo to make you happy, you will likely be best served by going back to do lipo again. On it's own Zerona has a 28% "worth it" rating on RealSelf.com. I have never spoken to a patient who was happy with the results they got with Zerona. I do not offer this treatment at all. ...Read more

Can liposuction get rid of all my fat?

Can liposuction get rid of all my fat?

No!!!!!!!: Nor would you want it to. A layer of fat is a necessity to keep the skin from sticking to the muscles. It also serves as important storage and padding.

How to get rid of face fat other than liposuction?

How to get rid of face fat other than liposuction?

Time.: If you are overweight, weight loss may help, but often the face has its own programming. The upside is, since the loss of facial fat is a natural part of the aging process, fatter faces look younger. You may not like it now, but it's a good investment for the future. Liposuction is a beter option for the neck, and below the jaw. Bucal fat can be removed directly, but lipo may cause nerve injuries. ...Read more
