I had liposuction all over my body 3 years ago, would it be safe and effective to have it done again to contour the body further?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What are the health risks of liposuction to the thigh area? What are the health risks of liposuction to the body in general?
Liposuction : Liposuction of the thighs is a generally safe procedure when performed by a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in liposuction. A specific concern about liposuction to the upper inner thigh area is that liposuction in this area may have a slightly increased risk of contour irregularities as compared to liposuction in other areas of the body. This is the result of the pattern and type of fat deposition in that area. Other possible complications are the typical complications of liposuction, including seroma (tissue fluid collection), blood clots, rare risk of fat emboli (fat particles circulating to the heart or brain), changes in skin pigmentation, poor scarring, and asymmetry. To reduce your risk of complications, always follow the specific instructions of your surgeon regarding the wearing of your compression garment (usually for 3-8 weeks to reduce swelling and contour irregularities), activity level after surgery, and any medications to take or avoid. All the best, dr. Skourtis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it possible for fat cells in our body to be resistant to diet and exercise or is this just a way of promoting liposuction?
Fat cells: Ultimately, fat burning becomes universal in distribution. However, fat cell resistance is real. Fat tissues have less circulation than other tissues and so are less exposed to burning dynamics. Low insulin is essential for adipose burning. And glycogen burning, ie stored starch burning, is first in line. Adipose burning kicks in with low insulin AND depletion of glycogen stores. Difficult! ...Read more
