Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure performed to improve the overall body contour by removing stubborn fat in a specific area of the patient’s body that has not been responsive to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body from the mid-section to the thighs, the arms to the buttocks, the back to the chin, and so on. Liposuction is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which a cannula is inserted (long, skinny tube) and the fat suctioned out.
It is important to understand the role of liposuction is not as a weight loss technique or a replacement for healthy eating and regular exercise.
