Although you shouldn t drink alcohol even a few days before and after surgery, it is even more of an imperative to not smoke.

Liposuction is meant to take out fat from strategic areas within your body, thus resulting in a more sculpted area within whichever portion you want to specifically target. Thus liposuction can take out stubborn fat under the skin from your belly and give you a more flat look. However, it should be remembered that this is just for sculpting and contouring and not a means to achieve weight loss.
