Will lipo alone fix this?
I had gastric bypass July 2008 and tummy tuck with liposuction to my back and flanks. I still have love handles all the way around. Will lipo fix this?

Thanks for the attempted photos, stick to your day job! LOL! But I would try only lipo with the understanding that you may need extension of the incisions laterally to achieve a better effect. Best of luck From MIAMI Dr. Darryl J. Blinski, 305 598 0091

Liposuction alone may help. But if your skin is still loose after the previous procedures, it may need additional tightening (longer scars).

The pictures are not very clear, However there is still some fat around the flanks, abdomen and back.
The major issue is the quality of skin elasticity, if the liposuction is complete you may need a tightening of the skin. The liposuction is going to be difficult because of the previous surgery and liposuction because of the scarring. Using Ultrasound liposuction will make it easier and more complete.

Hello
This is Dr. Carmina Cardenas.
I believe that will be enough just lipo on lovehandles, and Take advantage to that fat obtain for fat grafting for butt augmentation if that is your desire. I think AA has great skin and great tissues... A blessing for this matters...
Feel free if any aditional question.
