Is it weird to be extra hungry the first few weeks after liposuction?

Is it weird to be extra hungry the first few weeks after liposuction?

Is liposuction a good option for me right now? I am within a normal weight range for my height, but i would like to remove some of the excess fat in my abdomen. I’m not yet 35, and want some results and a flat stomach through liposuction. .

Liposuction : Liposuction is a great option for people who are normal weight and wish to remove fat from some "stubborn" areas. It is a body contouring procedure and not a weight loss procedure. To get the best results you should not have extra skin or a lot of stretch marks in the area. If that is the case, then you should also consider a tummy tuck. ...Read more

Can I have laser liposuction if I have diabetes and kidney problems? I would like to have it performed on a few areas of body as I have read some positive things about it. First i need to know if having my health conditions precludes me from having laser

Possibly.: Patients with medical “problems” are sometimes able to undergo elective plastic surgical procedures.
