Liposuction is an invasive procedure used to improve body contour by removing areas of excess fat. Common treatment locations include the abs, love handles, thighs, arms, back, and underneath the chin. Though it’s frequently thought of as a Weight Loss solution, “Liposuction is not indicated to treat this problem,” “Liposuction is intended to improve your Body Contour by reducing isolated collections of body fat that do not generally respond to diet and exercise.”
In some cases, Liposuction can be used to jumpstart a Weight Loss program, but patients should not expect to lose more than five to ten pounds from the treatment. The procedure is also not effective for cellulite, stretch marks, or sagging skin.

Liposuction procedure steps
The Liposuction procedure includes the following steps:
Step 1 – Anesthesia
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions.
First, diluted local anesthesia is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma. Then a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.
