The newspaper report you read should definitely influence everyone's thoughts about liposuction. For me personally, I would never consider it. Firstly, I would never go into surgery unless it was absolutely necessary, and that definitely includes cosmetic surgery. Secondly, liposuction will remove fat from a person's body, but the habits that got the fat there in the first place (overeating, eating unhealthy foods, and not being physically active) are all still there. The fat will more than likely return. Lastly, I would never recommend liposuction to anyone because, frankly, making the right nutritional choices and exercising are the only things you have to do to lose weight (that is, if you do not have any kind of medical condition that is causing your weight gain/retention). As it is often said, a person doesn't become overweight in one day, and it definitely takes more than one day to lose unwanted pounds. Liposuction provides people with a "quick fix," but, in reality, it is nothing more than a dangerous, expensive, and temporary way to lose a few inches.
