Also known as liposculpture, liposuction reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving body contours and proportion.
Despite good health and regular exercise, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas can occur due to genetic characteristics, lack of weight control, or physical activity. Liposuction can be used to treat fat accumulations in various parts of the body, including thighs, arms, neck, waist, back, inner knee, chest, cheeks, chin, legs, and ankles. In some cases, liposuction is performed alone, while in other cases, it is used with plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast reduction, or abdominoplasty.
Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity and does not replace regular exercise and good dietary habits. Individuals with localized fat deposits who exercise regularly are the best candidates for this procedure.
The success and safety of the procedure depend largely on your honesty during the consultation. You will be asked about your health, desires, and lifestyle.
