Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to improve a specific area of the body that has stubborn pockets of fat that have not been responsive to diet and exercise. There are are many different areas of the body that people struggle with–the mid-section, the thighs, the back, the arms, and even the neck can all accumulated fat and stubbornly hang onto it despite our best efforts. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body and is sometimes performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and arm lift.
The liposuction procedure is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which as a long skinny tube, called a cannula is inserted and the fat is suctioned out.
