Liposuction is an easy to understand surgery. It is simply the process of removing unwanted fat from specific “problem areas” of the body. Unlike diet and exercise, liposuction allows for the removal of fat from specific areas of the body. The procedure can even be used for “etching” or “contouring” as wanted. Many patients find out that even a small amount of fat removal can result in a massive transformation. Liposuction offers a permanent transformation, with the ability to spot target. It is no wonder liposuction is as common a procedure as it is. As liposuction has grown in popularity, the options available have grown as well. With modern liposuction options, you can remove fat from virtually anywhere on the body. Liposuction is also used to accomplish contouring, both facial and body. Many patients choose to have liposuction performed as a standalone procedure. It is also becoming more and more common for it to be combined with other procedures like a mommy makeover or facelift.
