Liposuction is a relatively simple procedure. It is simply the process of removing undesirable fat from specific “problem areas” of the body. Liposuction is a very precise procedure and allows for “spot targeting”, body contouring and even “etching”. For instance, liposuction is very often used to “etch” men’s abdomens to create or enhance the appearance of a “six pack”. The results are transformative. Not only can “problem areas” be spot targeted specifically, the results of liposuction are permanent. As liposuction has grown in popularity, the choices available have grown as well. With modern liposuction options, you can remove fat from virtually anywhere on the body. Liposuction is no longer merely for removing unwanted fat from the body. Facial and body contouring, utilizing liposuction, is becoming more and more popular and commonplace. A lot of patients opt to have liposuction done as a standalone procedure. It’s also becoming more and more common for it to be combined with other procedures like a mommy makeover or facelift.
