Liposuction Not for Weight Loss continued...
Anyone thinking of having liposuction, say Haeck and Daniels, should know that it is no substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Nor is it a weight loss procedure.
When done correctly by a qualified doctor, Haeck says, liposuction "can be a very gratifying operation but it's not a substitute for diet and exercise."
''Liposuction should serve as a springboard to a healthier lifestyle," says Daniels, who is also associate professor of plastic surgery at the University of California Irvine.
