What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is the removal of fat cells from the body. It is often performed in
conjunction with a tummy tuck. Liposuction is ideal for people who have tried to
remove the fat from their midsections with diet and exercise but have not been successful.
Liposuction can also be performed on other areas of the body such as the thighs
and upper arms.
How Is Liposuction Performed?
Traditional liposuction involves numbing the area and making a small incision in
the area where the fat will be removed. A tube is inserted into the area, and the
fat is sucked out. A more recent form of liposuction called ultrasound assisted
lipoplasty involves sound waves traveling from the suction device used for the procedure.
The fat cells are then dissolved into a liquid and suctioned out of the body.
