Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
- Cheeks, chin and neck
Liposuction can be performed alone or along with other plastic surgery procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction or an abdominoplasty.
What liposuction won't do
Liposuction is not a treatment for cellulite or obesity and is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise. Liposuction is also not a treatment for sagging skin, although it can be combined with procedures to correct this issue.
