Most of us have one area of our body that is a life-long battle when it comes to losing stubborn weight and creating the toned body contour we desire. Sometimes this area is not responsive to our best diet and exercise efforts and patients opt to take matters into their own hands to finally create the results they desire through Liposuction. Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure for both men and women. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body and is designed to target specific areas of stubborn fat. The liposuction procedure is performed through tiny incisions in the specified region through which a skinny, long tube called a cannula is inserted and the fat is suctioned out. While liposuction removes stubborn, excess fat, it is important to understand this is not a weight loss procedure or a substitute for healthy eating and regular exercise. Ideal candidates for the liposuction procedure are in good mental and physical health, at a stable weight, non-smokers, with realistic expectations for the procedure and its potential results.
Sometimes liposuction is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck or thigh lift.
