What is Liposuction? Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure that improves body contour by permanently removing fat cells from under the skin surface using a high-pressure vacuum and cannula that ‘sucks’ fat out of the body. It is a highly popular treatment, recommended for those who have unwanted fat deposits on the body, causing problem areas such on the tummy (the most common area for men), neck, arms, thighs and buttocks (common in women).
In addition to this, skin starts to lose elasticity and facial structures start to loosen through the normal aging process. You may discover fat accumulating in certain areas of the face and neck, creating a double chin and neck banding. Liposuction can be used in this area to give you a tighter, more youthful look to the chin and neck area.
Liposuction and weight loss
For some, Liposuction can be a great step to jump start your weight loss program. Do you have localized areas of fat that seem to be resistant to diet and exercise? Tummy fat or ‘bingo wings’ for example? This cosmetic surgery procedure can effectively remove the fat (and a couple of inches off the area in the process!). However we would like to stress that it should not be used as a complete alternative to other weight loss methods as it WILL NOT keep the weight off if you decide to eat unhealthily and do no exercise.
Also note that Liposuction is not an effective treatment for cellulite, stretch marks or skin tightening. Therefore, if you are searching for a treatment to target these common problems, click the links for our recommended treatments and futher information on procedures and aftercare.
