Kathy Griffin – “Liposuction Nearly Killed Me”

Posted Sep 07 2009 12:00am

Griffin became obsessed with her weight taking back-to-back step aerobics classes, starving herself all day and then binging at night. And the diet pills she used were like, “full-on illegal speed,” she joked. “I took it to lose weight, which is not very smart. I just felt three times as hungry afterward,” she said.

Finally, Griffin decided to go under the knife for liposuction. But complications from the procedure nearly killed her. “I want women to know that this is what lipo looks like. Like, are you sure you don’t want to just work out a little more?”

I realize that Ms Griffin is trying to sell a book here and is a comedian,  but the misconceptions here make me wanna have a stroke. Liposuction is not weight loss. It certainly sounds like she went into the procedure with the wrong idea, had it done in a large scale way and was harmed by it. When used as a fine-tuning step after weight loss, liposuction is not dangerous. Once again speaking rationally does not get airtime. Oh well.

Best Regards,
