Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that is popular among both men and women of various ages. Liposuction is performed to target a specific area of the body where stubborn fat has been resistant to diet and exercise. Many of us have an area of our body that is the first place we gain weight and the hardest place to lose it from. The area of the body may be different for each of us: thighs, abdomen, hips, buttocks, back, arms, knees, cheeks, or the chin. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body.

The procedure is performed through tiny incisions in the specified area, through which a long, skinny tube called a cannula is inserted and the fat suctioned out. Ideal candidates are in good health with realistic expectations for the procedure. It is important to understand that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure or a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise.
