How much weight can I lose with large volume liposuction?

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 more

Why do celebs rely on liposuction instead of losing the weight naturally?

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.

How good are the various types of non surgical liposuctions?

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 more

Do I need to lose weight before liposuction?

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 more

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 more
