Liposuction is a procedure used to remove excess body fat. This surgery is also referred to as ‘liposculpture’ or ‘suction-assisted lipectomy’. The procedure usually removes fat from the hips, thighs, flanks, tummy, and male breasts where it most commonly accumulates.
Liposuction is most suitable for people who are already a healthy weight, but have stubborn fat deposits that normal exercise just won’t shift. This minimally invasive treatment uses small tubes known as cannualas with suction to remove excess fat. Only fat cells are targeted, which means that surrounding, healthy tissue is left undamaged. This procedure can also be safely used in combination with other cosmetic interventions such as: a tummy tuck, breast reduction or a facelift.
