Liposuction after weight loss?
Has anyone on this forum had liposuction after weight loss? I recently shed quite a few pounds. I grew up fat and finally got on a diet and exercise plan that I stuck to and I lost almost 70 lbs. The problem is that some areas of my body still have spots that the weight isn't coming off and i think is left over from being over weight. I think some "spot" lip would be the best way maybe?

Yeah it works good for that but you need to have the self control to keep the weight off. I just commented on another message on this plastic surgery message board about this. Too many people get an operation then use it as an excuse to kick back and slack off and this is so what you should not to. If you do you are just going to end up back where you started.

Like the poster said above me SELF CONTROL IS KEY to a successful outcome!
I know too many people that look at lipo as an actual weight loss method. Nothing could be further from the truth. It should not be used to lose weight you should lose it after you already have and you are looking to remove troubled spots which are genetic in cause.
I remember a couple years ago watching some plastic surgery reality show on MTV and there was this big fat guy that got 30 lbs lipo'd off to lose weight. Right after surgery he went back to pigging out on hot dogs and junk food and he even said that he feels he deserves it because he went through the trauma of the surgery and he can now take it easy since he lost some weight. What an idiot. With that type of mindset he will be right back where he started before his original swelling even subsides! A total waste of money down the drain I wish people would start realizing that this is not a procedure to avoid diet and exercise. I guess the plastic surgeons don't care though because it just means the patients will be back for more liposuction.

But if you don't have enough self control to watch your weight in the first place how can you be expected to do it afterwards. If it costs enough that could be motivation for some of us.

If you are more than 10+ pounds overweight, and have not demonstrated that you CAN lose weight, an accredited board certified surgeon should not be performing ANY liposuction surgery on you. I have had many obese and morbidly obese clients claiming "discrimination", as they were not considered ideal candidiates. They were not considered ideal (or even possible) candidates, as lipo is a refining procedure, not a weight loss measure. One must be within their ideal weight range, as well as within their BMI, and/or close to "the number". People are always looking for the quick fix as well as instant gratification (drive through windows, ATM's, supermarket deliveries, as well as plastic surgeries to correct a lifetime of woes (not all physical)). Many people substitute plastic surgery for unresolved mental health problems or unreasonable surgical desires. Lipo is not the answer to lose weight, or even tone. It is for those last COUPLE of stubborn pounds of CELLULITE (not necessarily fat), for those who are in shape.
Also, if an individual had no control or knowledge of how to eat and exercise prior to lipo he or she will be doomed to fail, as they will sabotage the results of their surgery. Be forewared ...an quick and easy fix is not always the permanent nor safe solution.
