What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a common procedure performed over 250,000 times in 2017, a five percent increase over 2016. It removes stubborn fat from the body to help contour your body to your desires. It is not a weight loss procedure.
Liposuction is an applicable procedure for virtually any area with adequate levels of subcutaneous fat needing removal. Common treatment areas include:
- Double chin
- Back of neck
- Bottom of upper arms
- Outer thighs or saddlebags
- Bra strap area
- Abdomen or belly pooch
- Muffin top
- Love handles
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
The best candidates for this procedure are in good general health. They have stubborn fat between the skin and muscle and not visceral fat underneath the muscle layer surrounding the abdominal organs. They have good skin elasticity and realistic expectations regarding the procedure and the results.
How Much Fat Can Be Removed?
Medical experts caution that it is important to remember that liposuction is not a weight loss treatment. The amount of fat that can be removed in a session depends on the individual and many other factors. However, it is not designed for weight loss.
