It may make her feel good. Our daughter is finishing residency as plastic surgeon and she tells us stories of how small alterations can bring some people such comfort and personal confidence. One woman was working out and dieting till she was rail skinny, but still had "under arm wings". Flaps that embarrassed her, and really effected her life. She didn't want to go out, get dressed up...etc. A little nip and tuck trim and this woman is like a new person. Her husband wrote my daughter and her "chief" a glowing letter of thanks for his new, "confident" wife (he never saw the physical issue...SHE did). Later his wife wrote them a wonderful letter of thanks as well. If your GF really wants this lipo, it should be because she wants it. If she wants it that bad, then your job is to be supportive of her choice. It is, of course, her body and her choice.
