Will i attain better results from liposuction surgery if it is performed while i'm standing up or while I am laying down? Summer is approaching and i'm currently considering a liposuction procedure. I've always thought liposuction to be a procedure that i

You : You are certainly correct that body contouring results depend on how we interact with gravity in the standing position. Since we are human, however, it would be technically rather difficult to perform liposuction on someone who is standing up. For this reason, the markings for liposuction are done at 360 degrees in the standing position. The patient is then placed recumbent for the surgery, either face down, back down or both. It is dependent on the surgeon's talent and skill to translate the markings made upright into the appropriate fat removal and scuplting. While early taping and dressings are applied with the patient lying down, later garments and taping are perfromed while standing to help mold the body into its new shape as swelling subsides and the skin resettles. ...Read more

How long can I wait to do al liposuction after a sleeve surgery?

Stable Weight.: Best to undergo body contouring surgery of any kind once you have reached a long-term stable weight. Keep in mind, that patients who have had significant weight loss, often lose skin elasticity as well; you may not be a good candidate for liposuction surgery alone. Often, significant weight loss patients require excisional procedures (lipectomy) such as tummy tuck surgery. Best wishes. ...Read more

What are the disadvantages and advantages of liposuction on obese candidates? As opposed to having weight lost surgery would it be safer to have liposuction instead? What are the disadvantages and advantages of having liposuction when your obessed?

What are the disadvantages and advantages of liposuction on obese candidates? As opposed to having  weight lost surgery would it be safer to have liposuction instead? What are the disadvantages and advantages of having liposuction when your obessed?

Both : Both weight loss surgery and liposuction are actually surgical procedures that require anesthesia, and thus both carry risks as well as benefits. They have different potential complications that should be considered carefully before proceeding. I agree with the other doctors who have recommended weight loss by whatever means--diet and exercise first, and weight loss surgery if all else fails. Some of the weight loss surgical procedures (gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy) actually can improve diabetes very quickly, even before weight loss takes place. Liposuction works best when a person is near normal weight, but has isolated pockets of fat deposits to remove (on the thighs or midriff, for example). Weight loss surgery is a much better option for improving overall weight and health, and giving a person the best chance for a long, happy life. ...Read more
