Liposuction is one of the most popular and requested procedures in cosmetic surgery. Many people are looking for some way to improve the way they look. When diet and exercise alone does not work, liposuction may be an option. Simply speaking, liposuction permanently removes certain amounts of fatty tissue from isolated areas that cannot otherwise be changed, leaving the treated part of your body with a more rounded and contoured look. Often performed in conjunction with liposculputure, commonly treated areas are the hips, flanks, thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, arms and neck.
