What is an Liposuction?
Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction is a body contouring surgery that is designed to sculpt various areas of the body, eliminating unwanted pockets of exercise and diet-resistant fat from the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breasts), back, thighs, arms and neck.
It may be combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, to create the desired shape, and it is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic procedures available today.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure that addresses the parts of the body that do not respond to diet and exercise. It removes fat through a suctioning process and the procedure can be coupled with a tummy tuck to achieve the desired result. Areas that are typically targeted with liposuction are the abdomen, arms, buttocks, calves, ankles, chest, back, hips, thighs, and neck. In certain cases, liposuction is even used for breast reduction.
What are the Benefits of Liposuction?
The benefit of liposuction is a quick reduction in the overall weight of the patient. In areas of the neck, another area common for liposuction, it's a reduction of the accumulated and undesired fat under the chin and creation of a delineation line between chin and neck.
