No. Liposuction to remove fat has NO impact on your risk of developing heart disease. (They've done research on this) This is probably because it removes fat that is under the skin. You also have fat inside your abdomen, and you can't liposuction that fat. (It's all mixed together with your omentum and intestines and such) You can reduce your risk of heart disease by losing weight the hard way - diet and exercise.
