Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure performed to permanently remove stubborn fat cells in a localized area. Most people have an area of their body that they struggle with more than the rest of their body. The area of concern can be different for each person–for some it’s the mid-section, for others the thighs, the back, the buttocks, or even the neck or chin, knees or ankles. This procedure is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which a cannula is inserted and the fat suctioned out under local anesthesia. The result is a reshaping of bulging areas and a smoother, more contoured appearance.
Liposuction is not a replacement for healthy eating and exercise, in fact ideal candidates are in good health, at a stable weight, with realistic expectations for the procedure. Liposuction is intended to target fat in one specific area of the body, rather than achieve an overall weight loss.
