Liposuction is a relatively simple procedure. Liposuction is simply the process of removing fat from unwanted areas of the body. If diet and exercise has not done the trick for eliminating fat from a specific area of the body, then liposuction might be right for you. Many patients notice that even a small 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. As liposuction has grown in popularity, the options available have grown as well. Whether you’re looking to remove fat from your hips, arms, calves or even ankles, liposuction should work for you. 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 increasingly common for it to be combined with other surgeries like a mommy makeover or facelift.
