I read this article and would love to have the lipo suction. I have a muffin top and some back fat. I've been working out hard since september 28th and have only lost 5 1/2 pounds. I admit I have gained muscle but would really like to lose the flab I have.

I have heard some scary things about it, but there are a lot of new procedures out there that are supposed to be safer. Since it's not for obese people, but for people who are just over their ideal weight with trouble spots, I can see why it would help. Getting rid of fat takes removal. Loosing weight doesn't remove fat, it just shrinks your fat cells, so they are still there (ready to reload as needed, unfortunately) There is white fat and brown fat and I believe that it's the brown fat that is most stubborn and the one that is the biggest contributor to insulin resistance. So it's removal could be quite beneficial.

I'm not one who is willing to go under the knife unless I really have to. I know that when I have lost my next 100 lbs I will probably have to have skin removal surgery as 200lbs is a lot of weight to lose without leaving a lot of excess skin behind, but for a muffin top I'd not go under the knife. that's just my opinion. Wishing you the best at it. Heidi

Your post evoked for me what happened to Joan Rivers when she underwent her last "cosmetic" surgery…not something I would wish to risk.
