Brief Answer:
Need more details.

Detailed Answer:
Good day.
Noted your concern. Liposuction doesn't have much metabolic benefits compared to other weight loss procedures like sleeve gastrectomy. Could you please provide your weight ,,Height , medical history etc so that I can advice further?
Regards.
