One of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the United States each year, Liposuction can benefit both men and women who struggle with localized pockets of fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, rather it is best designed for people who are in otherwise good shape and at a healthy weight, but have a stubborn, concentrated area which has been virtually immune to diet and exercise. Everyone has pre-determined trouble areas, for some of us itís our abdomen, for other hips, thighs or knees or the arms. Liposuction can easily treat each of these areas and more. In fact, liposuction can pretty much be used anywhere on the body.
You will want to consult with a skilled board certified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. In some cases liposuction couple with another body contouring procedure may be required to achieve the desired results. For example, if your skin has poor elasticity, is loose or hanging in the abdominal area which you want liposuction, a liposuction coupled with a Tummy Tuck may be recommended. Likewise a in the thighs, a Thigh Lift with liposuction, etc.
