Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that is designed to contour the body by removing fat through a suction tube called a cannula. Sometimes called lipo for short, liposuction is capable of moving fat out of areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck and arms.
Patients should be in good health, because liposuction is not meant as an alternative to dieting and exercise. Liposuction is an ideal procedure for patients who, despite a healthy lifestyle, can’t rid themselves of stubborn fat deposits in areas like the stomach.
There are multiple options for the specific liposuction technique that will be used, but it will come down to a decision between you and a board-certified doctor like Dr. Andrew Lyos to decide what is best.
