Liposuction is a relatively simple procedure. Liposuction is simply the process of removing fat from unwanted areas of the body. If diet and exercise hasn’t done the trick for removing fat from a specific area of the body, then liposuction might be right for you. The end results of liposuction can be very dramatic. You’ve probably known or met someone who lost a ton of fat and they looked like a completely new person. That is the type of results liposuction can achieve. Not only can “problem areas” be spot targeted specifically, the results of liposuction are permanent. No longer are you limited to merely the removal of “love handles”. The popularity of liposuction has resulted in an expansion of available procedure options. Whether you’re looking to remove fat from your hips, arms, calves or even ankles, liposuction will work for you. It’s also used for facial contouring. Many patients choose to have liposuction done as a standalone procedure. It is also becoming increasingly common for it to be combined with other surgeries like a mommy makeover or facelift.
