Liposuction is quite simple. It removes fat from areas where it is not wanted. Liposuction is a very precise procedure and allows for “spot targeting”, body contouring and even “etching”. For instance, liposuction is very often utilized to “etch” men’s abdomens to create or enhance the look of a “six pack”. A lot of patients notice that even a tiny amount of fat removal can result in a massive transformation. Not only can “problem areas” be spot targeted specifically, the results of liposuction are permanent. No longer are you limited to only the removal of “love handles”. The popularity of liposuction has resulted in a growth of available procedure options. Liposuction procedures can be used to reduce fat in the following areas; hips, buttocks, abdomen, back, upper arms, inner knee, chest, calves, and ankles. Liposuction is no longer simply for removing unwanted fat from the body. Facial and body contouring, utilizing liposuction, is becoming more and more popular and common. A lot of patients opt to have liposuction done as a standalone procedure. It is also becoming increasingly common for it to be combined with other procedures like a mommy makeover or facelift.
