Liposuction (also known as lipoplasty) is a surgical process that works to slim and reshape targeted areas of the body. It accomplishes this by removing excess fat deposits from areas of accumulation, leading to favourably altered body proportions and contours.
Most liposuction patients look to the treatment for its ability to improve their appearance when stubborn, localized fat deposits don’t respond to exercise and healthy eating. Many people struggle with a disproportionate body because of this very problem due to factors beyond their control (with genetics being the usual culprit) and liposuction is able to help.
What Can Liposuction Do For Me?
Liposuction is able to treat excess fat deposits stored just below the skin of the face and body. Most patients look to the body contouring procedure in order to address problem areas like the chin, cheeks, neck, thighs, calves, ankles, inner knee, chest, back, hips, waist and arms. It is very common and is one of the top 3 procedures performed in North America, with hundreds of thousands performed annually.
Some patients will wish to combine their liposuction treatment with another aesthetic procedure to maximize its benefits. While liposuction can be performed as a standalone treatment it is also commonly used alongside a tummy tuck, facelift and/or breast reduction. Your surgeon will be able to help you in identifying the best possible treatment plan when discussing your goals in consultation.
