Liposuction is quite simple. It is simply the process of removing undesirable fat from specific “problem areas” of the body. Unlike diet and exercise, liposuction allows for the removal of fat from specific ”problem areas” of the body. The technique can even be used for “etching” or “contouring” as wanted. The end results of liposuction can be extremely dramatic. You’ve probably known or met a person who lost a ton of weight and they looked like a completely new person. That’s the type of results liposuction can achieve. Liposuction offers a permanent transformation, with the ability to spot target. It’s no wonder liposuction is as common a procedure as it is. As liposuction has grown in popularity, the choices available have grown as well. Whether you are looking to remove fat from your hips, arms, calves or even ankles, liposuction should work for you. Liposuction is also used for contouring, both facial and body. Many patients opt to have liposuction completed as a standalone procedure. It is also becoming more and more popular for it to be combined with other procedures like a mommy makeover or facelift.
