Inches, not Pounds: Liposuction will change you in inches more than in pounds. It works best for localized deposits of fat that don’t respond to conventional diet and exercise. The correction from surgery is permanent. But since you asked about weight, the answer depends on how heavy you are to start with. The most I have removed in one surgery is about 22 lbs, or 11 liters of fat. Think of 5 - 2 liter pop bottles.. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
They probably don't : I am pretty sure they are using personal trainers, on special diets, getting high tech and expensive med spa services and so on. Plastic surgery is often broadcasted but they don't show less invasive things too often. A good surgeon will not utilize liposuction as a form of weight loss. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Not good enough: Liposuction is by far much more effective. It is the permanent removal of fat cells under the skin and gives you the shape you are trying to acheive. The nonivasive radiofequency, freezing, ultrasound, low level laser, and all the rest are temporary and take multiple visits to see the results which are not nearly as fabulous as you would like. It is a preliminary approach prior to liposuction ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Depends on your goals. Being close to your ideal weight will get you a much nicer result. Lipo can help give you a push if you're "stuck" in your weight loss, not seeing results and getting discouraged. Stable weight (or more loss) is important, as weight gain after your procedure will decrease your results. If you're overweight you increase your risk of needing to going back for a touch up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is zerona liposuction as good as regular liposuction? I'd really like to get this procedure. I like that it doesn't involve cutting. But i'm also worried that because it's non-invasive it won't work as good.
Be Careful!: Unfortunately for the “consumer”, there are many different terms used to describe the liposuction surgical procedures. Many of these procedures are simply marketing techniques used by different practitioners. Also, unfortunately there is minimal regulation involved when it comes to who can perform these procedures and the terminology employed etc. Patients need to do their own due diligence. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Minimal with skill: Liposuction is one of the safest cosmetic procedures when performed by a skilled, trained cosmetic surgeon.

I lost 70 pound of fat, then gained 10 pound of muscles.now im 16% BF. should i liposuction 6%bf?i tied to lose the remaining 15 pound but couldnt!
I don't recommend it: Liposuction is only useful for body sculpting. In other words, it is not useful for changing your overall body fat amount, only the shape the fat takes on your body. If you lost 60 pounds, you may actually benefit from plastic surgery to cut away your excess skin to have a better appearance. You are on a medicine which can hamper weight loss. Consider talk to doc about possible med change? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How close to my ideal weight do I need to be for liposuction? I struggle with my weight and would like to get extensive liposuction to get my body looking the way i want. How close do I have to be to my idea weight to be a good candidate?
Critical: Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. When you have excess weight, fat does not only accumulate under your skin but around your guts etc. Liposuction is for normal weight patients with just contour problems not for overall slimming. Your best chance of having an excellent result is to bring your weight as low as you can. Then if there are localized rebellious bulges, get liposuction ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Do I have to be in good physical condition to qualify for tumescent liposuction? Do I have to be fit and in good cardiovascular shape to qualify for tumescent liposuction, or are sedentary people able to have it done as well?
Yes: Sedentary patients in good health can get it done but what counts is if you are overall healthy and not overweight. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is done to contour the body and get rid of rebellious fat bulges that are beyond the reach of dieting and exercising. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is tumescent liposuction good for a poochy belly? If my biggest problem is a slightly poochy belly, am i a good candidate for tumescent liposuction?
May be but...: Good advice would necessitate an in person examination. As you know, “slightly poochy belly” may mean different things to different people. Ultimately, you may be a good candidate if you have isolated diet and exercise resistant adipose tissue of the area, with good quality overlying skin elasticity present. If muscle laxity is present, tummy tuck surgery may be best option. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
