Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that has helped many men and women alike achieve the body contouring results they desire. Many of us struggle with one area of our body more than others, even when we are eating a healthy diet and exercising consistently, sometimes one area of the body just does not respond. Liposuction is designed to address those stubborn, localized sections of fat. The liposuction procedure is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which a long, skinny tube is inserted and the fat is sucked out.
It is important to understand that while liposuction removes fat, it is not a weight loss treatment. In some cases, the liposuction is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift.
