The goal of all liposuction procedures is to safely, permanently remove fat cells from an area of the body.
Liposuction is a body shaping procedure – NOT a weight loss strategy. The inches lost and improvements to body contours would suggest a greater weight loss than would actually be measured by a scale.
Typically, the areas (bra rolls, love handles, abdomen, neck, upper inner thighs, saddlebags) that are targeted for liposuction hold fat cells due to heredity and are resistant to healthy diet and exercise. They are usually seen in men and women at or below their normal weight.
Trying to eliminate pockets of excess fat that accumulate on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and other areas of the body can be a frustrating process. Often, diet and exercise on their own are just not sufficient to the task. In such cases, many people who want to achieve more aesthetically pleasing body contours turn to liposuction, which has been one of the most popular plastic surgery techniques for more than three decades now. This safe, proven procedure has allowed millions of patients to improve their figures through the precise targeting and removal of isolated deposits of fat. Often combined with other plastic surgery procedures such as abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck” surgery) and breast augmentation, liposuction is a potentially ideal solution for anyone looking to refine and rejuvenate their contours.
