Misconception Correction – Liposuction Will Not Give You A “Six Pack”

Posted Jan 01 2010 12:00am

After holiday excesses, it makes sense to gently nudge those who ate and drank too much back toward reality. I can think of no better way to do that than to remind us of a common misconception voiced by an entertainer:

Tara Reid on having liposuction (from US Weekly):

“I got lipo because even though I was skinny, I wanted – I’m not going to lie – a six-pack. I had body contouring, but it all went wrong. My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing.”

A “Six Pack” is well-toned muscle showing through a thin and tight layer of skin and fat. Liposuction removes fat and has minimal effects upon the skin. You will not get a six pack from liposuction alone.

Diet and lots of exercise can help you earn one. Sometimes cosmetic surgery can help you here with the fine tuning, but surgery alone will not “give” it to you. So back to the gym and a more sensible dietary intake. If you want cosmetic surgery after that then OK. ;)

Happy New Year,

John Di Saia MD
