Does anyone have experience with liposuction? I'm at risk for heart disease and no one in my family remains thin after about age 30 (I was the thinnest in my family).

I'm considering liposuction with these questions in mind:

1) Do we all have the same number of fat cells and do they simply get larger as we get fat? If so, liposuction would seem to be a real way to permanently reduce some of your body's fat content.

2) Does the body compensate for lost fat in time after such a procedure?

3) Are there "proven" health benefits over time for liposuction?

4) Does the body age gracefully after liposuction or do you turn into a mangled mess of flesh over time?

I can probably handle the risks of the procedures, but it's the implications over time that concern me. It'd be nice to end up looking better, but I'm not looking at this as cosmetic surgery. I'm sick of the fat and, of course, have done the diet and exercise thing.
