Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is commonly performed on both men and women who have been unable to achieve the results they desired through diet and exercise alone. Many of us have one area of our body that has more stubborn localized fat deposits than the rest of our body. Liposuction is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which a long, skinny tube called a cannula is inserted and the stubborn fat sucked out to achieve the desired body contour. Liposuction may be performed on virtually any area of the body from the tummy to the abdomen to the hips, legs, thighs, arms, back, and even the neck. In some cases patients may opt to combine the liposuction with other body contouring procedures such as Abdominoplasty, Arm Lift, or Thigh Lift.
Ideal candidates are in good health, at a stable body weight, nonsmokers, and have realistic expectations for the procedure and potential results.
