Myth: Cosmetic Surgery is for women
Although it is perceived that women are the only people pursuing cosmetic surgery, there are many men who may request cosmetic procedures as well. A consumer survey taken by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons found 12 percent of men were considering having a cosmetic surgery procedure.

Liposuction is usually not performed until a patient has tried to lose weight naturally first. The combination of weight loss and liposuction will definitely work well together for overall weight loss.
