Margerie, a friend who I’ve known for many years, looked at me tearfully as she hugged her grotesquely swollen body. She hoped I could help. Or at least explain….
A week previously she had Liposuction or ‘Lipo’ on her ‘spare tires’. Lipo is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which uses small cannulas to literally suck fat out of the body, and reshape problem areas.
It’s touted as a ‘magic solution’ for stubborn fat which you can’t budge via normal diet and exercise. Since it doesn’t usually require all the hassles and cost of full blown surgery, and supposedly has minimal side effects and down time, it’s very popular.
