Tumescent liposuction is not a good way to lose weight.
Actually very little weight is removed by this operation. Suction lipectomy is a technique to sculpt localized collections of fat. It is a tool of refinement. Weight loss is the coarser tool. You are better off getting closer to your ideal weight first and then using plastic surgery to refine the resistant localized problem areas. Some doctors are trying to expand the boundaries of safe Tumescent Liposuction by removing massive amounts of fat from very obese people. This large volume liposuction has very significant risks and can be dangerous despite some excellent results. Dr. Bermant urges caution about the hype surrounding what otherwise might sound like a "quick fix" for those unable to loose weight.
