Liposuction is one of the most popular methods for body contouring.
It is a type of cosmetic surgery which breaks up and “sucks” fat from various parts of the body.
The aim of this method is not to reduce weight but only to improve the aesthetic looks of the body.
It is meant predominantly for those who fail to lose weight by dieting or doing physical exercises.
Liposuction can be performed on different parts of the body, most commonly the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves and back.
How is this procedure performed
Liposuction is carried out by using cannulae which are inserted through a 3mm incision. Excessive fatty tissue is “sucked out” through cannulae.
The operation is performed under general, regional or local anesthesia.Search for additional information: Cosmetic surgery – Liposuction
