Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted deposits of fat from specific areas of the body including the face, neck, upper arms, trunk, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. The best candidates for liposuction are individuals of relatively normal weight who have excess fat in particular body areas. There are a variety of surgical techniques for liposuction.

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia at a hospital or surgery center. The procedure lasts about 30 minutes for each body part.

After surgery, patients are required to wear a compression garment to help the body adjust to its new shape. Bruising and swelling will subside within 1 week, but patients will not see final results for several months. Liposuction does leave a small scar, but it fades over time.

Liposuction removes unwanted fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. If you are unhappy with a particular area or areas of your body, liposection can help reshape that area.

These patients have the best results because they are less likely to regain any weight after the procedure and have long lasting results.
