Many people think that Liposuction is an overall weight-loss method, but it is not.

This surgery is ideal for those who have stable body weight but would like to get rid of unwanted body fats and want to alter the shape of the body

Liposuction surgery can be performed on the belly, hips, thighs, back, buttocks, arms, and under the chin or face to improve their shape. In addition to this, it can also be done with other plastic surgeries, including facelifts, breast reductions, and tummy tucks.

Types of Liposuction

Suction-Assisted Liposuction: It is a procedure that is performed with a tube and vacuum device to remove stubborn body fat which usually doesn't go away through diet and exercise.

Tumescent Liposuction: Tumescent liposuction is a modification of the wet technique that is performed using a local anesthetic to numb the specific body area where the tube will be inserted. This procedure does not require general anesthesia.

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction: In this procedure, ultrasound is used to liquefy tougher fat which makes it easier to remove. It is ideal in removing fat from the upper abdomen, sides, and back.
