Study Looks at Whether Liposuction Has an Anti-Diabetes Bonus
After a year, those in the Weight Watchers group were significantly more likely than the self-helpers to have successfully maintained their weight loss.
"At one year, we have people keeping off about 12 pounds," says Miller-Kovach. "So the benefit is comparable [to large-volume liposuction]. But in the end, it comes down to risk and benefit. I may work for Weight Watchers, but liposuction certainly has more risks than attending our meetings."
