Quick blog, for all of you no attention span people.
Liposuction is not a weight loss technique. You hear this, but then someone after liposuction drops 2 pant sizes, so you think, “how could they not lose weight?” Liposuction is a body contouring and shaping technique. We do remove fat, which has some weight to it, but it is never as dramatic as you would think.
You should lose some weight. I estimate for every liter of fat removed (not liter of fluid, but of fat) you should lose 2.2 pounds.
Liposuction is not a weight loss technique. It is a sculpting procedure. For the best results, have a good eating and exercise regimen firmly in place before surgery. So go hike that Stanford dish!
