What Is Liposuction?

One of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the US, liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. Commonly treated areas include the abdomen, waist, hips, saddlebags , knees, chin, and upper arms. We use local, tumescent anesthesia only to avoid the risks associated with general anesthesia This also limits the amount of fat that can be removed in one sitting,  so it’s important to realize that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, but rather for sculpting.
