ANONYMOUS SAID:

I am trying to determine how much it would cost for me to get my body to a point where I can maintain it. My all-in goal is to drop 30 lbs, primarily focused on core. I have been able to reduce the size of my thighs and arms. But my core will not release the fat. I am currently 5’10 and 206 lbs. How much on average could be reduced from a one time reduction on the love handles?

    When doing liposuction, there is bulk removed but not much weight. The abdominal fat can be a challenge to lose but liposuction should not be used for weight loss. It is not that you cannot have liposuction, you certainly can. It is just that your weight may not change by much. Your shape should see some reduction though in that area.

    Liposuction of the iliac crests will be the most productive. The amount removed will entirely depend on the amount that you have there. Non invasive alternatives do exist, but the effect is rather minimal, rather variable, and they are very slow. Ther Verju laser is FDA approved and can treat the whole body and is pain free and risk free with no downtime at all. I suggest you get a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.

    A one time reduction of your ‘love handles’ will remove anywhere from 250-750 cc’s of fat, depending on where you start from. As for costs, it really depends on what must be done. Invest in a consultation and get evaluated to see if this is something that could be done before reaching your goal or until you reach your goal.
