Sometimes exercise and eating right aren’t enough to get rid of stubborn fat pockets in one or more parts of your body. If you’re unhappy with extra bulges or cellulite in a certain area, liposuction can help. 

Liposuction (lipoplasty) is surgery that slims and reshapes certain parts of the body by suctioning fat deposits out of them. 

Fat can be reduced from:

  • Ankles
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Calves
  • Cheeks
  • Chest
  • Chin
  • Inner knee
  • Thighs
  • Waist

services & treatment

During the procedure, your surgeon will make small incisions in the areas where you’re having fat removed, then insert a thin tube (cannula) that loosens the fat from the tissue. After the fat is dislodged, it is suctioned out with a syringe or a surgical vacuum attached to the cannula. 

Your doctor will use general anesthesia or IV sedation, so you won’t feel any pain. Liposuction incisions are so small that most don’t require stitches. This helps you heal faster, with less noticeable scars.

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. If you’re considering surgery to help you overcome a serious weight problem, find out more about major weight loss surgery here.
