Liposuction is a procedure that helps get rid of fat by literally suctioning it out. For the past decade, it has been by far, the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. It helps get rid of fat from stubborn areas where exercise or dieting fails to make an impact. While exercising and dieting can also do that but liposuction targets specific areas – trouble spots like thighs, abdomen, hips and knees for women and abdomen and sides for men.
The extent of the procedure is dependent on various factors like your weight and skin. People who have excess skin due to conditions like pregnancy or weight loss should avoid liposuction and go for procedures like tummy tuck, body lift or other incision surgeries are better.
