The concept of Liposuction is very simple. It is the suctioning of excess fat from an area of the body that is overstuffed with fat. While it cannot be used for weight loss; however, liposuction can remove fat directly from a specific area of excess.
What Does Liposuction Mean?
Lipo means fat. Body bulges are caused when there is too much fat in one place. Fat is soft so, the excess can be vacuumed away. Fat sucking is literally what Liposuction means, and is exactly what Liposuction does.
What Does Liposuction Do?
Liposuction removes disproportionate fat. Ideally, other than temporary bruising and swelling, Liposuction does not effect the skin above, or the muscle deep to the fat. The fat can be reduced from many different areas safely and effectively. Here are a few common examples:
- The neck (under the chin)
- The upper arms
- The chest (most often for men)
- The abdomen
- The back and flanks (love handles)
- The thighs
