How it works

Subcutaneous fat, located between the skin and muscle, can be hard to get rid of and liposuction safely removes these unwanted fatty deposits through suction which creates tunnels that will collapse and improve the contour of your body.

While liposuction removes fat, it’s not meant to and does not facilitate weight loss and should be performed on individuals who are already at a normal, healthy weight. However, for varying reasons such as age or family traits, despite a healthy lifestyle, you may find yourself with localized, unwanted fatty deposits that create disproportionate and unwanted contours throughout your body. Liposuction is often used in conjunction with and complement other body contouring procedures.

The procedure

The liposuction procedure will involve the use of a tube that is inserted through very small skin incisions and connects to suction equipment that sucks the unwanted fat out of your body. The removal of this fat produces outstanding results, and because the fat cells are actually removed, they will not grow back which can prevent fat / weight gain in the future.

The risks

Cosmetic surgery procedures always come with risks, however, the risks associated with liposuction are incredibly minimal.
