Lorneater Rayford asks:
Will large volume liposuction be good for me if I'm to get mid section definition. My BMI is 38, I'm 5'7" 245lbs. My goal isn't wt loss. I'm comfortable with my body size but I will look better without a protruding Abd.

A protruding abdomen has many causes. Excess fat under the skin (subcutaneous fat), laxity of the abdominal muscles, and/or excess intra-abdominal fat (where the organs are). The latter cause cannot be treated by liposuction; only weight loss. LIposuction may improve your waist line, but it may not be adequate if the muscles are loose. Additionally, surgery may be safer at a lower weight.
