Liposuction is performed through the use of a cannula (or long, skinny tube) that is inserted through tiny incisions in the specified area. Both men and women of various ages who have struggled to lose fat in a specific area of their body, even when the rest of their figure has responded to diet and exercise use this body contouring procedure, may opt for Liposuction to achieve their aesthetic goals. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body from the chin and neck to the mid-section, the buttocks, thighs, arms, or knees. Sometimes the Liposuction procedure is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as Abdominoplasty, Thigh Lift, Brachioplasty, or a Body Lift.
The Liposuction procedure is not intended as a weight loss solution, but rather as a way to target a localized area of stubborn fat cells.
