Countess Vaughn, who starred in the popular sitcom The Parkers, recently made her way back into the headlines to discuss liposuction and transforming her life. The Grio explores this in a recent article titled “Countess Vaughn drops 3 sizes after liposuction, shows off new body.”
According to the author of the article, “‘I’ve always been honest about everything,’ she said of the liposuction surgery that she underwent in front of the cameras. ‘I wanted to do a mommy makeover. I had done it after my oldest child. I really needed to just treat myself, and I’m happy about it!’ But after the surgery, the weight was not coming off as fast as she would have hoped. Although part of that was due to thyroid issues, Vaughn also decided that she needed to change the way she ate on top of everything else she had done. So, she set to work on changing her portions and her diet. ‘I watch what I eat, and I’m into snacking now,’ she told PEOPLE. ‘I used to just eat maybe once or twice [a day] – breakfast and then dinner, maybe skip lunch. But now I try to snack, have some nuts, have some yogurt.’ Throw in some exercise, and you’ve got the secret to Vaughn’s weight loss success.”
EurekAlert also takes a look at liposuction in a recent article titled “How much liposuction is ‘safe’? The answer varies by body weight.” The author of the article writes, “What’s the ‘safe’ amount of fat to remove in patients undergoing liposuction? Rather than a hard-and-fast rule, the answer depends on the patient’s body mass index (BMI), according to a report in the September issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). ‘Our study shows that liposuction is associated with a very low complication rate, with major complications occurring in less than 1 in 1,000 patients,’ comments ASPS Member Surgeon John Y.S. Kim of Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago. ‘It also calls into question the concept of simple absolute thresholds for lipoaspirate volume–the amount of liposuction that can be performed safely seems to depend in part on how much fat content a person begins with.’”
