Liposuction is a popular body-contouring procedure performed to help both men and women reduce stubborn pockets of fat in a specified area. Most of us struggle with that one area of our body that is often the first place we put on weight and last place we lose it. Sometimes no matter how stringent our diet and exercise regimes are, that stubborn fat just insists on hanging on. Liposuction is a procedure that specifically targets these localized areas of stubborn fat. The procedure is performed through tiny incisions through which a cannula (long, skinny tube) is inserted and the fat suctioned out.
It is important to understand that Liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss. Liposuction is more for someone who is healthy and at a normal weight with an area of localized, stubborn fat that has been unresponsive to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body.
