Also known as lipoplasty and body contouring surgery

Liposuction surgery sculpts your body, eliminating unwanted pockets of exercise and diet-resistant fat from the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breasts), back, arms and neck. Liposuction is often combined with other procedures to create a desired shape and is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic procedures. When to Consider Liposuction • If you have localized areas of fat deposits that are disproportionate with the rest of your body. • If you would like more definition or a sleeker contour in certain areas of your body. • If your skin elasticity is good (Liposuction removes fat, but does not tighten skin).
