Sometimes liposuction in one area can encourage weight loss in the rest of the body. The improved shape as result of liposuction can motivate individuals to change the shape of their whole body.
Liposuction After Weight Loss
We have had a lot of success in sculpting the fat in the skin that remains after weight loss. Liposuction which takes the fat out of the skin that remained after weight loss which allows it to tighten and completes change in shape.
Below are tummy photographs of a middle aged woman who lost 85 pounds prior to her liposuction. She still had some fat in the skin that didn’t go away with the weight loss. She wanted some additional body sculpting on her tummy to complete her transformation.

Liposuction and Weight Loss
The primary benefit of laser liposuction is the body sculpting or change in contours that the procedure achieves. The process permanently removes fat. However the quantity of fat removed does is not enough to affect your overall weight very much. The fat loss that occurs with a liposuction surgery ranges from 5 to 10 lbs. The surgery is confined to the cosmetic area/s where the surgery is performed, such as an abdomen or flanks and cannot cover your whole body. The surgical areas are sculpted and slimmed significantly. The kind of slimming and loss of inches for example around your waist you see in the sculpted area/s are similar to the amount slimming and inches lost as if you had a significant 20 or 30 lbs weight loss all over the body. But the slimming does not cover your whole body it only occurs in the area /s that were treated.
In this before and after, the weight of the fat removed was about 6 pounds. The slimming and inches lost in belly is similar to the slimming that occurs in a belly with 20-40 weight loss all over the body.
