Liposuction and BMIResearchers at the University of Illinois’ Division of Plastic Surgery, Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, and the Lehigh Valley (Pa.) Health Network recently released the findings of a new study that looked at the correlation between body mass index (BMI) and liposuction safety.

The results of the study indicated that “BMI plays a role in outcomes of liposuction volumes, and higher-BMI patients may be able to tolerate more liposuction than lower-BMI patients,” according to the co-author of the study, Dr. John Y. S. Kim.

He also stated that the study emphasized that “liposuction in the hands of properly trained surgeons is an exceedingly safe procedure with low morbidity.”
