Liposuction is performed on both men and women of varying ages who are looking to permanently remove a stubborn pocket of fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body from the ankles, calves, knees and thighs up to the abdomen and waist, the hips and buttocks, the arms and back, the chest and all the way up to the neck, chin, and cheeks. Liposuction is performed under either local or general anesthesia. It is important to understand that while liposuction removes stubborn fat cells, it is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for healthy eating and exercise.
Sometimes liposuction is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck.
