Safe BMI for Liposuction

I have gained a few lbs over the last 6 months - some trouble at work and an unexpected death in the family.  I was interested in maybe getting some liposuction to get myself back on track and to feel a little better about myself.  What is a safe BMI to get liposuction?

Before choosing your surgeon, you should do a bit of research about the different types of liposuction available. If you know other people who have had liposuction, you should ask them about the method their doctors used and how they felt about the treatment. That way, if you are interested in a particular technique or technology, you can find a doctor who provides the treatment you desire.

Sorry to hear about the death in your family :(. 

What you're asking is a loaded question. It depends on your weight, your general health and the location you would like to have liposuction performed on. Can you post a picture? 

I had liposuction performed on my love handles and hips when I had my tummy tuck. I'm 5'7" and 152lbs.
