Liposuction is a relatively simple procedure. It’s simply the process of removing unwanted fat from specific “problem areas” of the body. The procedure is precise and allows for targeted body contouring. Many patients notice that even a small amount of fat removal can create a massive transformation. Even if only small amounts of fat might be removed the effect is very noticeable and permanent. You are no longer limited to merely the removal of “love handles”. The popularity of liposuction has resulted in an expansion of available procedure options. Whether you are looking to remove fat from your hips, arms, calves or even ankles, liposuction will work for you. Liposuction is also used to accomplish contouring, both facial and body. A lot of 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.
