I had a Breast reduction in 2002, and breast augmentation in 2007, liposuction on stomach, thighs, muffin top section in 2009, another breast reduction in 2017 with smaller implants replacing the ones I had in 2007, and on Oct 31, I’m having the gastric sleeve. I am a BMI of 32 and SW is 180. My goal is 125. I’m 5’3 and gaining weight in all the wrong places gives me major aches and pains along with my tailbone actually hurts when I sit.
Does anyone have experience with liposuction before weight loss surgery? I’m curious to know if the areas that once had fat sucked out will be easier to lose? Will they be thinner?

I'm a little confused.

You had your boobs reduced , then enlarged then reduced again? You realise that if you have dramatic weight loss your boobs are likely to change shape again. Will you be going for a further boob op?

I see your sleeve surgery is this week. Good luck, hope it all goes well.

Yes, reduced, then after two kids they were gone and I had a tubal so I went ahead and had them filled, then after a long time I gained a lot of weight and had to reduce them again. I’m not really too worried about them I was just wondering more about Liposuctioned sections.

Oh best to you. I also have a pronounced tail bone... I would rather deal with it rather than shortened boned.

I had both liposuction (2009) and a breast reduction (2017) prior to surgery. Between 2009 and current, I gained massive weight, first in the areas I didn't have Lipo, and then in the areas I did. I am not losing weight now in the areas I had lipo any faster than anywhere else. I also regret having the breast reduction done... had I known I would be having WLS, I would have waited... but I didn't expect to and they were severely hurting my back. They will likely be quite saggy when I lose weight... but I have a LOT more weight to lose than you do.
