Your BMI is in the "morbidly obese" range at 42.77. That is not healthy. You are setting yourself up for diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, and an early death. Liposuction can remove small amounts of fat to improve contours. It is not an appropriate method of weight loss. You need to get serious about reducing your weight into a "healthy" range. Talk to your primary care doctor about medically supervised weight loss, or give consideration to bariatric surgery. Once you are truly "healthy", a plastic surgeon may be able to help you improve your shape by removing excess skin and contouring the remaining fat.
