Liposuction is a procedure popular among both men and women of various ages who are struggling with a specific area of their body that has been resistant to diet and exercise. We all have one of those places in our body that just never quite achieves our aesthetic goal no matter how disciplined our diet and exercise regime, even as the rest of our body seems to change in our efforts. Some people struggle with the abdominal region, others the flanks, love handles, the thighs, the buttocks, the arms or even the neck. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can be performed on virtually any area of the body and is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area through which a cannula (long, skinny tube) is inserted and the fat suctioned out.
It is important for patients to understand that the Liposuction procedure is not a weight loss treatment, rather it is intended to target a specific area of stubborn fat that is localized to one area. Ideal patients are in good health with realistic expectations for the procedure and its potential results.
