Liposuction is a cosmetic body contouring procedure that targets and removes stubborn pockets of fat that have not been responsive to diet and exercise. It is important to understand that liposuction is not a tool for weight loss or a replacement for healthy eating and exercise. Liposuction can be used in a limited capacity (typically the average amount of fat removed is around 5 kg) in a specific area that has not responded to traditional weight loss methods. Many of us struggle with one area of our body whether it is the mid-section, the back, the buttocks, the thighs, or arms…liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body.
The liposuction procedure is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which a long skinny cannula is inserted and the fat is suctioned out.
