One of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed today to help both men and women achieve their body contouring goals is Liposuction. Liposuction is performed to remove stubborn pockets of fat that have been resistant to traditional methods for weight loss, like diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body–which is good because we all struggle with different “trouble zones.” Some people have a life-long battle against their mid-section, for others it may be the thighs or buttocks or love handles, while someone else struggles most with stubborn fat in the neck. Liposuction is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which a cannula (long, skinny tube) is inserted and the fat suctioned out.
Liposuction may be performed on its own or in combination with other body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck, thigh lift, or arm lift.
