Liposuction removes pockets of fat from troublesome areas such as the thighs, hips, abdomen and upper arms. These areas are targeted, contoured and re-sculpted to achieve dramatic results. The most commonly treated areas are the outer thighs and stomach in women and "love handles" in men. Other popular areas for liposuction include the neck, face, upper arms, upper and lower abdomen, lower back and legs.
Liposuction can eliminate small pockets of fat from areas that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, and is a way to take control of the shape and contour of your body. Liposuction is a surgical procedure, and a good candidate for liposuction will be at or near normal weight, with firm elastic skin.
