Question: I would like to lose 40 pounds. Will liposuction help?

No.  Liposuction is not a diet plan.  Liposuction does remove unwanted fat in certain areas of the body, but it cannot simply remove 10, 20, or 30 pounds.  Diet and exercise are the only real ways to lose that much weight.  Liposuction is a great option for those stubborn areas of unwanted fat that diet and exercise fail.  Liposuction can help to boost this process, but the patient needs to be on a diet and exercise program to fully achieve their goals.

Even after liposuction is performed, patients are advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle to maintain their results. Liposuction can be a very rewarding procedure but those rewards depend on your compliance and commitment to yourself.
