Liposuction or Lap Band
 
I'm debating on either Liposuction or a Lap Band.

Lipo is about a 1/4 of the price of a lap band, but a lap band will keep the fat off.


I'm trying to get rid of my stomach and side fat. What does everyone the pro's and con's are of each??

You can only get a lap band if you qualify medically.

Lipo is if you are 5-8 lbs. overweight.

They really are two totally different things. Do you mind me asking how many pounds you want to lose?

Excellent comment, la_angel!

I hope the original poster has realistic expectations.

Lipo is NOT a cure for weight loss. Check out the link below.

Reader Question – Liposuction for Weight Loss? Truth in Cosmetic Surgery

I am not affiliated with the surgeon mentioned in the link, nor am I promoting him, or his work.

Well even though liposuction is not a weight loss solution, I know there are unscrupulous surgeons out there that let their patients think it is :Angry:

These kinds of surgeons are totally unethical. Perhaps the original poster is comparing a weight loss surgery to a plastic surgery refining technique due to the misinformation of surgeons such as these. :(

Any updates, youtalk? I am very interested to see how you feel now that you have received some feedback.
