Hi.. I am a 36yr old mother of 3..I have had two c-sections and other pregnancies that I’ve mis-carried, a couple of them went into the 2nd tri mester…I had to have a hysterectomy in 2010..I have gained over 100lbs..which puts me at 235 5’5. I have dieted and exercised but never able to lose more than about 20lbs… My stomach is my biggest issue..I am constantly experiencing lower back pain and upper shoulder area neck pain. I guess my question is…Is it safe, affordable, wise to try to get some kind of belly fat removal? It’s getting harder and harder to exercise due to the levels of pain I’m dealing with…

    I understand your frustration. A consultation would be required to determine the best procedures to attain your goals. However, you may consider Smartlipo (liposuction) to remove up to 10 pounds of fat from below the skin of the belly when you get to a weight of around 200 pounds. The loose folds of skin will most likely require a tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty). For the best results, you will probably need to be around 170 pounds before considering a tummy tuck surgery.
