Liposuction is a type of body contouring or body sculpting that will remove the excessive fat from certain parts of your body. Liposuction is able to be performed virtually anywhere on your entire body, which includes you upper arms, ankles, calves, knees, thighs, back, buttocks, hips and abdomen. You can also have facial liposuction that can help with issues such as excess fat and skin on your neck, cheeks and jowls.
In many cases, localized fat deposits can be inherited and may not respond to exercise or dieting. Liposuction will often be the only way to get rid of this type of fat.
Liposuction is able to be performed on its own, or with other plastic surgeries such as a tummy tuck or breast reduction. It can also be done to several different areas of your body, all at once. In some cases, liposuction is performed in multi-step procedures, such as the Brazilian butt lift, where the fat is removed and then replaced in other areas of the body where there is not enough.
If you are considering liposuction, you will need to learn all you can about the procedure to ensure that you have realistic expectations. You should also discuss the procedure with your doctor to ensure that it is right for you. If you are still in the process of losing weight, then you may need to wait to have the procedure completed. You will also need to visit your doctor for a consultation, to ensure that you are in overall good health and that you will be able to withstand the procedure. Doing this will ensure that you are fully prepared for the liposuction procedure and keep you happy with the results that are achieved with the procedure.
