Liposuction/Liposculpture is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures designed for the permanent removal of fatty tissue. It is an elective operation in which the cosmetic surgeon removes undesirable, subcutaneous fat in isolated areas that may not respond to diet and exercise. These areas include the hips, thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, face and neck.
Liposuction is not a weight loss tool and it is necessary that your weight is stable before undergoing. However, many patients find that after the removal of problem fat areas, they are more motivated to maintain their weight or even lose additional weight.
