What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat from specific areas of the body. Liposuction can be used to slim the hips and thighs, flatten the abdomen, shape the calves and ankles or eliminate a double chin. Liposuction is not recommended for weight loss; rather, it is recommended for those who only wish to improve their body contour. Liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise and cannot effectively treat cellulite.
