Liposuction vs. Tuck. First, proper diet and exercise are an essential part of any weight loss plan. If you are already leading a healthy lifestyle, the answer depends on your anatomy. If you suffer from excess fat, liposuction alone can provide reduction of excess fat in key areas, such as the belly or love handles. If you have excess skin you may require a tummy tuck to reduce the excess fat and skin.
Diet, exercise, lipo. Start with dieting and exercising. Lipo is not for weight loss, just to get rid of the localized fat. Once you reach your goal, consider a little help from lipo to improve your contour.
